Technology from Israeli start-up ACiiST provides Peachtree Corners with connected infrastructure network solutions that allow various mobility technologies on the city’s streets to communicate.
US 5G smart city Peachtree Corners in Georgia has announced a partnership with Israeli start-up ACiiST, a manufacturer of SD-LAN network solutions optimised for connecting outdoor cameras and sensors through a robust networking system.
The partnership provides Peachtree Corners with connected infrastructure network solutions via fibre that allow various mobility technologies on the streets to communicate with minimal digging, saving the city and residents time and money.
Installed in Technology Parkway earlier this year, ACiiST’s technology spans across a half-mile of Peachtree Corners’ “city street of the future”, allowing deployed technologies and smart infrastructure with cameras, wireless links and other communication equipment to be streamed directly to the Curiosity Lab’s IoT control room.
Communication between the smart infrastructure and the IoT control room is possible via self-managed ACiiST Polarity units that create a low latency, high-performance and fully manageable network.
“We are able to demonstrate to other cities across the country the unique network connectivity, redundancy and monitoring capabilities of ACiiST’s technology through this implementation on public infrastructure”
“Working with ACiiST to demonstrate their technologies at Curiosity Lab is another great example of how international companies are showing great interest in the most unique real-world smart city ecosystem in the country,” said Brandon Branham, assistant city manager and CTO, Peachtree Corners.
“We are able to demonstrate to other cities across the country the unique network connectivity, redundancy and monitoring capabilities of ACiiST’s technology through this implementation on public infrastructure.”
He continued: “This is a true testament of how the partnership between Israel and Curiosity Lab offers start-ups a one-of-a-kind experience to bring their products to the North American market.”
According to ACiiST, its network solutions allow Peachtree Corners to have a more secure smart city environment and make informed decisions based on data, such as traffic management. The solution also makes it easier for new edge devices such as cameras, radar sensors, digital signs, V2I access points and more, to be deployed and installed as smart infrastructure across the city street of the future.
“It was clear from the very first time we met with the Peachtree Corners management team that we are talking with leaders who want to promote positive change – with smart roads and streets as a platform to better manage their public spaces,” added Sagi Gurfinkel, co-founder and CEO, ACiiST.
“They are open-minded to the implementation of new technologies, and we are happy to have our network solutions in action at the most unique smart city environment in the US.”
