In this episode of Slice of Celona, we’ll explore how smart cities can use private 5G to become more connected than ever.

Chances are, your city is already “smart” in some capacity. From streetlights to traffic lights cities around the world are connecting infrastructure through mobile networks. In this Slice of Celona, we’ll explore how smart cities can use the CBRS to scale, and what opportunities there are for private enterprises as the cities around them become more connected. Check out this video to get answers to questions like:
