The Connected City Infrastructure project group aims to develop a configuration with cost-efficient new and retro-fitted street asset solutions and different backhaul technologies. The group will publish a case study to showcase a sustainable business model for street assets, managed by municipalities or public utilities, providing citizen services and generating appropriate revenue streams.
The group is focused on urban connectivity solutions, specifically:
- The definition and validation of new construction and retro-fitted modular street assets with LTE / 5G Small Cells and Public Wi-Fi E2E architectures. The PG members will deploy these street assets, with modular assembly, in a field trial supporting interchangeable backhaul and access technologies.
- The creation of an anonymized business case for provision and operation of operator service based on different backhaul & transmission services (i.e. fiber, mmWave, microwave) – focusing on business driver constructs required to drive a scalable solution. This will also be complemented with deployment and operational guidelines.
