Citizen quality of life can be improved through facilities and services that must be thought to ease citizen interaction with municipal authorities, offices, and structures. Advanced metering infrastructures (AMIs) can be proposed as the backbone of smart city projects. The chapter deals with this topic by describing devices and results of a pilot project designed and carried out by the authors for experiencing the RF 169 MHz wM-Bus in AMI. The AMI was installed in Salerno, an Italian middle city of about 1,40,000 inhabitants and covering a land area of 58.96 km2. Five public services have been loaded on the AMI to help find the affordability of necessary investments: gas and water metering, car parking management, elder tele-assistance, and pollution measurements. The pilot project has involved the 1.5% of the citizens in 11 city districts. Results provided a great amount of data and information about reliability and efficiency of devices and networks and have been held into account by the authors of the national standard on the shared management of the 169 MHz frequency band (UNI CEI TS 11762:2019). These results let understand that in the next future solutions like those described in the chapter can become products and services available for all citizens.
