- AT&T announced Tuesday that it is working with the City of Las Vegas to pilot a smart lighting solution in the city’s Innovation District in an effort to improve public safety and reduce energy usage.
- AT&T will work with smart city platform Ubicquia to replace existing photocells with Ubicquia streetlight routers, dubbed Ubicell, and integrate wireless LTE and LTE-M networks across the platform. The telecom says it will monitor energy usage and outages “in near real-time” to improve streetlight maintenance.
- “The City of Las Vegas pilot is a great example of how cities can utilize their existing streetlight infrastructure to improve safety and connectivity with their community, and easily deploy smart city technology that solves real problems,” said Ian Aaron, CEO of Ubicquia, in a statement.
