IT Infrastructure Committee
A wide range of different types of high-performance digital infrastructure is required to meet the needs of Urban ICT Arena Project Owners.
The IT Infrastructure Committee is to ensure collaboration, orderliness, ease of access, transparency and diversity.
The committee has collective general expertise in IT infrastructure, including vast knowledge in wireless communication (5G, mesh networks, WiFi etc.), wired communication (fiber) and the above logical service and communications layers.
Each Project Owner that provides IT infrastructure appoints a representative to the committee.
The committee processes all project plans that involve providing or using IT infrastructure in any way. The committee secures the IT infrastructure and assesses the degree of digital sustainability.
It meets a couple times per semester and the rest of its business is conducted digitally. It is responsible for Urban ICT Arena’s digital map of IT infrastructure.

Well-planned and coordinated communications help boost the impact of Urban ICT Arena. A special communications platform has therefore been established. The communications platform aims to facilitate and promote joint communications within Urban ICT Arena as a whole and in individual projects conducted under the auspices of Urban ICT Arena.
Each Founding Partner is entitled to appoint one person to represent them on a joint communications council, which will prepare a joint communications plan annually, along with an activity plan and budget, and monitor and improve the plan on an ongoing basis. The COO, or another person at KSCAB appointed by the COO, serves as the chair of the Communications Council.
The Communications Council meets at least twice a year. The COO is responsible for convening the council.
