5GCity: the unveiling of 5G ready smart urban furniture and deployment of a media use case

On June 06th, Ubiwhere and Accelleran, partners of the 5GCity consortium, have jointly installed, in the city of Guimarães, Portugal, a new kind of multi-tenant and multi-technology street urban furniture, offering Neutral Hosts the chance to use common multi-purpose streetlight poles to provide cellular infrastructure and connectivity.

The Smart Lamppost (http://smartlamppost.com) solution, co-developed by Ubiwhere, has integrated both an Electrical Vehicle Charging Station, alongside a fully functioning LTE network, made possible by Accelleran’s E1000 Small Cells and Accelleran RAN/vRAN solutions.

The unveiling of the solution took place during the kickoff of “Guimarães 5G Ready” project – a long-term vision of the city of Guimarães to digitalise common infrastructure to build a network of connected things, empowering new businesses and universities, accelerating the research and development of new and innovative services.
