Greenville Becomes the First US City to be Powered by Sprint's IoT Network

Greenville a City in South Carolina, USA, in partnership with Sprint has decided to build out smart city infrastructure and an ecosystem to leverage the power of 5G and the ground-breaking Sprint Curiosity IoT. The announcement, made at CES 2019, entails the installation of innovative Massive MIMO technology, dedicated IoT network technology and more across the entire city.

Greenville government officials and staff are placing their trust in Sprint to power what will be one of the most forward-thinking smart city ecosystems on the planet, leveraging the power of Sprint mobile 5G and Curiosity IoT networks to bring smart city use cases to life. Concepts will become a reality with 5G networks and "micro-positioning" technology enabling connected vehicles, autonomous drones and any other smart machines to operate, navigate and react in real time, in a dedicated area of the city. Leading companies including Smart Greenville, W8less and LG, among others, are working together to bring exciting ideas to life. Together, new technology in the city will attract digital start-ups and research and development in autonomous, AI and robotics.

Curiosity IoT with 5G: Driving the Connected Device Revolution

Sprint 5G and Curiosity are creating the new standard in IoT which features device data intelligence, over-the-air device management and chip-to-cloud security. When coupled with Sprint's blazing-fast, high-capacity mobile 5G service, Curiosity IoT's dedicated, distributed and virtualized IoT core network will be capable of supporting artificial intelligence, robotics, edge computing, autonomous vehicles and other IoT systems requiring extreme low-latency and high-bandwidth.
