Ubicquia is a developer of a telecommunications platform intended to provide municipalities and mobile operators a cost-effective way for deploying broadband and small cell services. The company's platform provides designing, deployment, and managing of IoT interfaces through software and hardware components. The company also offers a suite of products that are NEMA socket-compliant and compatible with more than 360 million streetlights globally. The company was founded in 2014 and headquartered in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Ubicquia is involved in organizations including the US Conference of Mayors Business Council, GSMA, Competitive Carrier Association, CBRS Alliance, and Illuminating Engineering Society, to help efforts to make connected cities.
Ubicquia's platform is based on the company's products, including IoT and connectivity devices for "smart" or connected city applications. This includes the UbiCell devices that provide advanced lighting controls for streetlights, including networking LED streetlights under central management systems. The company suggested this connectivity and networking can provide savings of up to 85 percent, with capabilities including automatic dimming, smart parking, video monitoring, public Wi-Fi, and environmental sensors.
Through Ubicquia's UbiCell, UbiMetro, and UbiHub products, the company is capable of helping a city build a connected infrastructure and deploy this infrastructure in order to provide public Wi-Fi capabilities, through the deployment of millions of Wi-Fi hotspots and small cells. These different products are capable of mounting on streetlights, turning the lights into the hotspots, and offering an opportunity for cities to develop connectivity. And these connectivity products are capable of providing different related capabilities, such as environmental sensors, location-based services, and 5G deployments.
Through the use of sensors with Ubicquia's different products, including the UbiCell product and the UbiGrid grid monitoring products, can give cities different connectivity data. This is intended to offer more and new data source in order to better monitor and predict a city's environment, including saving on lighting costs, traffic analysis, smart security, air quality management, pedestrian movement, and parking analysis. These data sources are then developed to work with Ubicquia's API or web-based management tool to process and analyze the data.
Ubicquia's platform and a combination of the company's connectivity and IoT products can also provide edge computing capabilities, offering a network of connected streetlights and devices that can keep computing and analysis near the edge of the network, and where the data is initially collected.
