Witnessing Innovation and Gigabit Solutions in Adelaide

This fall, I recently had the pleasure of being hosted by the wonderful people of Adelaide, Australia so that I could attend the IgniteSA launch. During this multi-day smart city event, US Ignite was proud to welcome Adelaide as the first international city to join our Smart Gigabit Communities (SGC) program. The SGC program is a collaboration among US Ignite, universities, municipalities, community anchor institutions like hospitals and schools, nonprofits, network carriers and ISPs.   Together, these organizations are focused on developing smart gigabit applications that address local community needs, such as education, workforce development, public safety, community health, smart energy and transportation.
