CINCINNATI – As part of the comprehensive effort to transform Cincinnati into a smarter city, the City of Cincinnati will install a new ‘fiber ring’ around the entire Central Business District.
Regional Smart Cities leaders have collaborated with municipal, academic, and private sector experts to develop and deploy the first set(s) of municipal smart city standards in the Midwest. Several collaborations made initial testing possible, as connectivity solutions act as the foundational layer of smart city planning.

The Regional Smart Cities Initiative is adding cohesiveness to smart city conversations and helping to develop an agile planning architecture to encourage smart, regional growth in collaboration with stakeholders worldwide.
