||AT&T: In April, AT&T and the City of San Jose announced a strategic collaboration for the deployment of small cells. Today, AT&T and the City are expanding their relationship to a full public-private partnership that will foster the creation of a Smart City and bolster San Jose’s place as the most innovative city in the heart of Silicon Valley. AT&T plans to engage in a pilot with San Jose to trial a multitude of AT&T Smart Cities solutions, that may include LED Smart Lighting, public Wi-Fi, AT&T Digital Infrastructure and Structure Monitoring. AT&T will also be deploying thousands of additional small cells to enhance existing voice and data capacity while laying the foundation for standards-based mobile 5G service.
“As the leader in Smart Cities technology since 2015, we know connectivity is the foundation for innovation. San Jose will utilize our cutting-edge Smart Cities solutions to help create a more efficient, safer and sustainable environment for the people who live there,” said Michael Zeto, VP of AT&T IoT and General Manager of Smart Cities. “And with this solid small cell foundation in place, AT&T plans to begin introducing standards-based, mobile 5G service in parts of San Jose in the first half of 2019 – creating the ultimate Smart City ecosystem.”
