The combination between Telecommunication technology and pipeline networking became a must for smart cities. Glass in gas is the used wording of FIGsm technology, which is a developed patent for installation of optical fiber in gas main and service pipelines. This technology can reduce construction costs by 50 to 70 percent for the existing facilities. Egypt pipeline networks are owned by different authorities and ministries without integrated frame for information or coordination. The security of such networks is great challenge; such technology can help to adapt it.

Information Bank is a must and possible mission of Egypt in the current decade. Few decades ago Cairo underground metro project was the main reason behind establishment of Cairo utilities information center. The collected information is real treasure which is not used yet as it supposed to be. We still need an integrated information bank for future smart cities infra structure in the country. The integration means stopping of digging for different purposes without coordination, where the same pipe or route can be utilized smartly in combined for different purposes.
