WSP in Canada: IoT, 5G and building a smart, secure future

November 04, 2019 / HARRY MENEAR

Today, more than half of humanity lives in cities. The United Nations predicts this proportion will rise to 68% by 2050, adding 2.5 billion people to the world’s urban areas. To promote successful coexistence within these increasingly congested jungles of glass and steel, city planners and developers in the public and private sectors are increasingly turning towards cutting-edge technology for solutions. “We’re standing at the dawn of another technological revolution, and keeping up with the speed of the coming change is key,” says Terri Govang, Director of Technology for Western Canada at WSP and an expert in smart building security systems.
