AT&T has announced at CES 2019 that it will be trialling a smart lighting solution across Las Vegas with Ubicquia aimed at improving public safety and energy efficiency.

Its Internet of Things (IoT) partnership with the City of Las Vegas will see it trial the solution for six months in parts of the Las Vegas Innovation District, using existing streetlights kitted out with Ubicquia's Ubicell streetlight routers.

It will then integrate its LTE and LTE-M networks with Ubicquia's smart lighting platform.

"This will create a smart lighting network in selected locations on Main Street, Las Vegas Boulevard, near the University Medical Center, and in residential areas," AT&T said.

"In near real-time, the platform can monitor energy usage and outages to improve streetlight maintenance. This will help reduce public safety concerns with prolonged or unreported light outages in areas of the community frequented by citizens and tourists."
