Multi-functional Smart Lampposts Technical Advisory Ad Hoc Committee holds fourth meeting

The Multi-functional Smart Lampposts Technical Advisory Ad Hoc Committee held its fourth meeting today (November 12).

At the meeting, the Privacy Commissioner for Personal Data shared with members on the privacy protection matters related to 5G technology. Mobile network operators were invited to join the meeting and explain how the industry would benefit from smart lampposts to develop the 5G network for public use. Members also discussed the design of multi-functional smart lampposts as well as initial findings and recommendations for the Committee report.

The Committee plans to discuss in greater details the initial recommendations before finalising the Committee report. Members then agreed to arrange additional Committee meetings in January and February 2020 for this purpose.

The discussion papers for the Committee will be uploaded onto the Multi-functional Smart Lampposts thematic webpage at www.ogcio.gov.hk/en/our_work/strategies/initiatives/smart_lampposts/.
