There are different models for development of smart cities. Some bring together a centralisation of different functions, others emphasise on the focused development of certain key infrastructure.

Vodafone India has moved 265 towers onto green technology in financial year 2012-13, taking their total number to 2,700, according to the company. As per the report, Vodafone had 2,435 of its sites on green technologies out of 1,10,004 total mobile towers that company directly manages.
