Los Angeles City to Become USA’s First Fully Functional Wireless Gigabit and Smart City

Los Angeles City to Become USA’s First Fully Functional Wireless Gigabit and Smart City

The world’s largest telecom startup, Angie Communications, puts the Gigabit Fiber and Smart City industry in high gear with its “ultra-intelligent city” proposition for Los Angeles City.

  • - Angie is building proprietary large scale next-generation fiber-fed wireless networks to make “Virtual Fiber To The Home” Gigabit wireless connectivity and Smart City solutions a reality in Los Angeles City.
  • - Angie brings ubiquitous and seamless wireless Gigabit connectivity directly to end users under its Wireless Extreme brand.
  • - Los Angeles City residents will pay just $30 per month for a wireless Gigabit connection that they can use all across Los Angeles.
  • - Angie and approved third parties will be able to offer solutions on the Smart City network. 

Los Angeles, USA – July 14, 2016 – Angie Communications USA, Inc., an ambitious entrant to the US telecoms market and part of Angie Communications International, the world's largest telecoms start-up, today announced that it is in the final stages of planning and engineering to make Los Angeles City the first fully functional Wireless Gigabit and Smart City in the USA, bringing fiber-fed wireless connectivity and Smart City solutions to LA residents and businesses.

Angie Communications is pushing full steam ahead with its worldwide Wireless Gigabit and Smart City infrastructure deployments. While Angie is in talks with several local authorities in the US, Gregory Nemitz, Angie’s CEO Americas, recently signed an agreement with Wilcon and SouthCal Edison, two of California’s premier fiber network operators, to build Angie’s deep fiber and ubiquitous wireless infrastructure in California residential neighborhoods – putting the company ahead of any other mobile and wireless operator.

“Two years ago, we responded to LA City’s broadband initiative, and I even attended the proposers’ conference. We decided not to pursue the opportunity when it was presented last year due to certain things that we perceived as limitations. Today, Angie is working closely with a lot of partners to bring cutting edge technology to LA and its surrounding area. LA City is at the core of the second largest metropolitan area here in the US,” says Nemitz. “We’ll bring the latest smart city technology to the entire area and finance everything ourselves. There is no requirement for the city to finance or even become an anchor customer. As such, the city and its residents and businesses will have all the benefits and none of the financial or operational risks.”

Wilcon and SCE are two of the largest fibre and communications operators in the US; Angie will build fiber infrastructure deeper into neighborhoods off their existing infrastructure. The connectivity for the last hundred feet and into homes and businesses will be done through wireless technology.

“This ultra-densification of fiber and wireless in the entire city will result in unique fiber-fed wireless Gigabit services in and around homes and businesses,” said Farooq Malik, Angie’s COO Americas. “LA City will be the first area in the US to benefit from this kind of next-generation communications and fully functional smart city infrastructure. Once installed, our 5G-primed fiber-fed networks will improve or even change lifestyles, making things more fun and convenient, and enabling more productive business and work.”

“Wilcon is pleased to be working with Angie on its exciting new buildout here in Los Angeles,” said Jon DeLuca, CEO of Wilcon. “The reach and scale of our fiber optic networks and our wireless infrastructure capabilities will serve to accelerate Angie’s plans.”

“We will bring fiber to locations in LA City where it is uneconomical or expensive for the city or other operators; it is part of our commitment to the people of LA. This way, everybody wins: residents, businesses, the LA government, and Angie and its partners,” said Neal Lachman, Angie’s Group CEO. “With the likes of Wilcon and SCE and several others already on board as partners, we plan to emulate the LA City models, principles and modus operandi throughout the USA.”

Angie will put a heavy emphasis on making LA City truly ready for more efficient city-to-community communications and operations. The company invests in unique know-how, partnerships and capital to make LA City not only smart but even ultra-intelligent.

Angie’s Ultra-Intelligent Cities will instantly become exponentially efficient in terms of operations as well as save lots of money on a daily basis. Angie and select partners will develop, build, maintain and operate all (critical as well as non-critical) infrastructure and communications means for city-wide Smart solutions, from end to end, as recently announced.

- Real time city public transport information

"Angie will build the best performing city-wide ultra-intelligent Infrastructure and will offer services in modules for cities, businesses and residents to pick and choose, allowing them to pay only for what is used, said Dr. Manook Soghomonian, Strategic Consultant and an independent expert on Smart City models, "Cities and their communities can benefit from ultra-intelligent services offered on Angie's infrastructure, and thus avoid large investments and other costs."

With Angie appearing on the scene, a new era in the world of electronic communications has dawned as the “follow me” network is now becoming a reality. Angie will serve as an ISP as well as a “Smart Everything” solutions and service provider. The company promises its subscribers unrestricted and unlimited Gigabit wireless access anytime, anywhere, anyhow – in all coverage areas. With regards to its Smart solutions, the company thinks they will soon become a must-have service that residents and businesses will love to use and share, making life easier and fun, and their work or professional life more efficient and productive.

Angie’s next-generation communications infrastructure will include the latest wireless technologies, including carrier-class Wi-Fi technology, to deliver services on customers’ current devices. In each neighborhood, outdoor wireless access points will be directly connected to Angie’s fiber optic network, strengthened by many street level access points. Industry experts are well aware that future data demand cannot be satisfied without such an ultra-dense wireless infrastructure, which will have fiber connectivity as close to the wireless and mobile user as possible. Only fiber backhaul (with multiple terabits per second connectivity) can handle the upcoming exponential growth of mobile and wireless data usage. Angie’s fiber-fed wireless network is built as beyond 5G-ready; due to the connection on Angie’s virtually unlimited fiber capacity which reaches into all neighborhoods, its network is 5G-primed - intelligent, connected, wired and wireless.
