What are the challenges of integrating energy and communication systems in smart cities? What is the role of the standards, especially about EMC? This is the panel's context promoted by SCENT project and Bright Cities, with the mediation provided by SCENT ESR2 - Hermes Loschi, in conjunction with ETOPIA ESR 7 - Francinei Vieira and the electrical engineer at ABB - Carlos Eduardo Bertolassi.
Initially, the needs for systems integration were widely adopted and used by telecommunication companies, especially by systems of supervision and control of traffic and switching (Fig.1) .
