  • A Review on Smart Cities Technologies, Challenges, and Solution
  • A great deal of considerable attention must be paid to smart cities to improve the quality of life and the efficiency of operations. At the same time, they can meet the future and current generations in terms of economic, social, environmental, and cultural aspects. The majority of people now live in cities, and the number of urban residents is expected to increase from 3.3 billion to 5 billion by 2030. The increasing population growth is the main motivation for work to transform cities into smart cities as the solution to address this increasing population. Later, technological development and the emergence of the Internet of Things led to the expansion of the concept of smart cities, and the work on them greatly by academics and industrialists alike. The main objective of this paper is to give the reader a fundamental understanding of smart cities, and then to give some introduction on the architecture of these cities from a network perspective. Also, we summarize and review the technologies and challenges of smart cities in general. This review is a reference for the general concept of smart cities and for authors who intend to work in this field
