Sprint Announces First 5G IoT Smart City Infrastructure Partnership - CES 2019
Sprint's 5G-driven Curiosity IoT will form the basis for future connected technologies in the city of Greenville, South Carolina, according to an announcement made in conjunction with this year's CES 2019 event in Las Vegas. The agreement between the carrier and officials of the municipality places Sprint in a support role in plans to turn Greenville into a smart city. Sprint hasn't offered any timeline details for now but says that it will install Massive MIMO, dedicated IoT networking, and similar technologies. The goal is to provide a solid underlying infrastructure and ecosystem enabling smart vehicles, autonomous drones, and any other connected technology to operate, navigate, and react to their surroundings in real time. That will start in an unspecified area of the city, designated specifically for that purpose. Eventually, the buildout might spread but the initial purpose is to position Greenville in a position to draw in digital startups as well as research and development projects. That includes experts working in smart city technologies but also autonomous, robotics, and AI tech innovators.
