Cradlepoint, Bosch, and T-Mobile Enhance Peachtree Corners Smart City Services

By Stefania Viscusi

Cradlepoint, a provider of cloud-delivered LTE and 5G wireless network edge solutions has announced a collaboration with T-Mobile and the Curiosity Lab to provide 5G Wireless WAN technology at Peachtree Corners, Georgia, one of the nation's first smart cities.

The solution uses near real-time IoT technology developed by Bosch, together with T-Mobile's 5G network and Cradlepoint's purpose-built wideband adapters and routers for near real-time parking and safety monitoring. The combination will assist Peachtree Corners shoppers and visitors in finding open parking as well as available charging stations for electric vehicles.

"Real-world deployments of IoT are challenging the status quo of existing solutions. Couple that with the trend of businesses leveraging 5G technology to transform, and you'll see how this advanced connectivity is remodeling the enterprise," said Todd Krautkremer, CMO, Cradlepoint.

5G cellular IoT connectivity has become increasingly valuable today especially for securing, managing and enhancing smart cities. It can be deployed much more quickly than fiber and costs thousands of dollars less.

Curiosity Lab is a 5G-enabled intelligent mobility and smart city living laboratory owned and operated by Peachtree Corners. It is leveraging T-Mobile’s 5G Advance Network Solutions to prove the value of IoT in real-world deployments. In addition to a three-mile public autonomous vehicle roadway leveraging cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) tech, Curiosity Lab is using intelligent traffic cameras and traffic signals, smart streetlights, and the country's first IoT Central Control Room.

"Improving safety, efficiencies and anticipating the needs of customers is what best-in-class smart cities can accomplish when powered by 5G and with innovators like Cradlepoint," said Chris Melus, vice president of product management with T-Mobile for Business.

For city planners, the new technology will also make it easier to manage traffic, enhance security aounrd the city and make informed decisions about parking.

This isn’t the first time Bosch has been part of Peachtree Corners’ smart city initiatives. It helped install traffic video sensor technology back in 2020.

“We are demonstrating a scalable, affordable, adroit AIoT solution to serve the community. The flexibility of this solution was only possible with this technology-forward collaboration and is changing the conversation of what is possible when there is a need for parking management, retail management, community safety and true community operational analytics,”  said Lewis Stallworth, business development, Bosch Security Systems.
