Dublin, Ohio Gets Smart City Infrastructure from Fujitsu

Fujitsu Network Communications, Inc. has completed deployment of a CBRS-enabled, Smart Parking pilot application for citizens of Dublin, Ohio, the company said.

The trial, which is part of the broader Connected Dublin initiative, aims to improve local business success and lower carbon emissions by measuring and analyzing parking patterns and making those insights visible to community leaders and residents.

During the pilot, the City has discovered an additional, unexpected benefit of the Smart Parking application: They can measure the impacts of quarantine guidelines due to COVID-19. The data, including number of cars and duration of visits, have been invaluable to local government and businesses alike.

This pilot deployment is the first phase of a software-defined, 5G-ready digital transformation platform which includes four primary components: multi-layer software orchestration and control, physical and edge compute network equipment, IoT applications and devices, and complete lifecycle support services. These building blocks can be combined to meet any private or public 5G network need and enable any digital transformation use case across multiple industries.
