Infrastructure fund with a focus on European infrastructure investment Arcus Infrastructure Partners and Deutsche Telekom’s ICT subsidiary T-Systems and management consulting firm Arthur D Little have formed a strategic partnership to fast-track the rollout of smart city services and infrastructure throughout Europe. The partners jointly offer cities an end-to-end solution from concept development to full-scale deployment including the provision of financing, technology and operations of smart city projects. Their approach specifically addresses the increasing demand for integrated smart city services and infrastructure. Public support for smart city concepts has grown significantly and trial projects have been implemented in numerous cities and towns across Europe. The partnership will enable municipalities to sustainably transition from small-scale pilot projects to mainstream holistic service offerings.

The three partners and their extended ecosystems will jointly help cities to plan, design and implement smart city projects. They will also offer comprehensive support to operate their smart urban infrastructure once in place. Furthermore and crucially, they will provide and manage the required financing which to date has often been a key obstacle for municipalities planning to roll out smart city services. The proposed long-term model combines the strengths of the private and public sectors to deploy innovative digital services and infrastructure with a people-centric approach at its core.
Cities and their citizens have identified areas such as public safety, smart mobility & transportation, as well as city-wide connectivity as a priority. Environmental services such as smart waste management or energy saving measures including smart lighting are also in high demand. Legacy urban infrastructure is becoming stretched leading to strong interest in privately financed investment in smart city initiatives. Through the use of state-of-the-art infrastructure, as well as long-standing smart city expertise, the partners are focusing on unlocking societal benefits by offering services that facilitate a rapid transition towards safer, low carbon, resource efficient and better-connected economies.
