This make me think of connective ness in a City and shared services. These towers could be put in for police communication but also utilized to monitor much more like areas for asthma suffers to avoid. The future is beautiful and scary all at the same time.

As someone who suffers from asthma first-hand, I second this. It has great potential and will impact so many people who have it.

The asthma applications are quite promising.  Here in NYC, it's a very real Public Heath issue.

Well kq4ym, uses could include real-time air quality monitoring. If you get a load of sensors that can measure the air quality and send that data back to a central database then it could help people decide which bits of the city to avoid to reduce the risk of them having an ashtma attack. It's just one idea. There are more in this article and this report.

And How This Work?
Now that very low powered devices can connect with one another and to the cloud, just what uses might be put for the technology? The positive side might be the ability to work wirelessly in previous unaccessible locations, underground, etc. But just how cities will adopt the new gadgets remain to be seen. And will government communications agencies agree to provide the frequencies needed freely or will they  be auctioned off to the highest bidder, like the FCC has been doing for years here?
