Frisco Station and AT&T to Create 5G Evolution Connected Community from the Ground Up
Aug. 09, 2018
FRISCO, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 9, 2018--Frisco Station will be one of the first connected communities in the nation built from the ground up with 5G Evolution wireless technology from AT&T. Frisco Station is launching an enhanced wireless experience across its parks, residential options, hospitality units and corporate spaces.
Designed with future-proofing in mind, the 242-acre, mixed-use development will feature the latest integrated connectivity from AT&T, including wireless stealth micro cells, ultra-fast internet powered by AT&T Fiber SM and robust Wi-Fi throughout all common areas. Frisco Station will have the necessary infrastructure to enable the future and create an ideal environment for people to innovate, engage and collaborate.
“Frisco Station understands the future belongs to the individual,” said Ed Balcerzak, SVP of AT&T Connected Communities. “With this development, we’re working together to give you more of your thing and connect you to the people, information and entertainment you care about.”
By investing in robust technology, Frisco Station provides the foundation required for new innovations to be launched, like Uber Air’s first Skyport and the recently announced drive.ai autonomous vehicle pilot program. The technology platform being integrated at Frisco Station enables these innovative transit solutions to develop stronger, faster, more reliable connections between devices and applications.
“Stations are places where people go to make connections. That’s why the Frisco Station Partnership chose AT&T as its partner to implement a platform that can support a connected community at every stage,” said Mike Berry, president of Hillwood, Frisco Station’s master developer. “We believe we are creating a high-tech environment, unlike anywhere else in the country, that has the potential to change the way people think about what’s possible in their day-to-day interactions with people and information.”
By proactively addressing current and future connectivity needs, Frisco Station will be prepared for greater reliance on smart devices and automated platforms for transportation, healthcare, entertainment and lifestyle advancements – connecting an anticipated 15,000-person daytime population, five million square feet of office and 2,400 urban living residents to and from one of the fastest growing areas in the country. Frisco Station’s master plan is built upon three-pillars designed to encourage smart, creative and healthy experiences. The development will promote activity, connectedness and individual well-being through its interwoven trails and 30 acres of programmable, interactive open spaces.
Frisco Station’s enhanced wireless technology is providing a platform to encourage connectivity between Frisco’s emerging corporate and entertainment destinations. Building a connected community from the ground up ensures that Frisco Station’s vision can be put into practice today and maximized well into the future.
