The GSM Association trumpeted the apparent success of Movistar Negocios’s deployment of a range of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions in the city of San Nicolas de los Arroyos, Argentina as part of its Beyond Connectivity promotional campaign. Launched in early‑2019, the ‘smart-city’ project has seen Telefónica provide a platform to support the implementation of GPS trackers for municipal employees and vehicles, enabling greater remote coordination and savings of 20% in fuel costs, an increase in police patrols, and a 15% reduction in emergency response times.
