This initial network in East Austin will extend existing independent fiber using a mix of new 5G/10G FCC wireless spectrum connected in some instances sub 1ms digital latency away from edge and core data centers/edge data centers. Imagine a new hyper local digital world also enabling connecting people to bus stops / hubs or drones / cars delivering things to people. We have already built infrastructure for major mobile companies using a similiar idea however, their rollout of 5G will take many years according to experts and be limited in coverage. This is why Austin iCNet will be the foundation for Smart City and Transportation.
These networks enable Autonomous/Connected cars, buses (CapMetro), real time communications/monitoring along with enabling Smart Traffic/Transporation, Smart City, Smart Government, Free Local Gigabit Wi-Fi (DIgital Inclusion), Smart Buildings, Smart Energy and more.
Instead of every public and private company building their own tiny small digital road (Google struggled to scale fiber), we build a multi purpose super highway which serves multiple applications using proven technologies. Imagine "Aerial Ethernet" with 100% secure segments (VLAN's) for both public and private data communications.
