LA PUENTE, Calif. /California Newswire/ — XG Communities LLC, a premier provider of wireless, asset marketing and engineering services for cities and municipalities across the United States, announces their agreement to market and manage wireless coverage solutions for the City of La Puente, California.
Under the multi-year agreement, XG Communities will begin marketing the City’s street light poles and other assets for small cell colocation. This effort will enhance the ability for La Puente to deploy wireless connectivity throughout the city.
As wireless carriers densify existing networks, it is estimated that the industry will deploy hundreds of thousands of small cells, making it increasingly difficult for cities to manage the application and deployment process. In collaboration with the carriers, XG Communities will streamline applications with a predictable process, while preserving community aesthetics and generate long-term revenue to the City.
The decision for the City of La Puente to partner with XG Communities was based on maintaining control, preventing visual blight and increasing connectivity for businesses, residents and citizens. The solution will be the foundation to deploy Smart City infrastructure, enhance business investment, and improve public services.
“I am excited that XG Communities was selected by the La Puente City Council to be our technological partner, and I look forward to working with them to bring our community into the rapidly approaching internet-of-things economy,” said Mayor Violeta Lewis, City of La Puente.
