AT&T, JBG SMITH to Turn National Landing into First 5G Smart City

AT&T and JBG SMITH have announced plans to deliver the first 5G Smart City at scale in National Landing. The first network infrastructure deployments are planned for the first half of 2022 and will expand with development of the community.

AT&T and JBG SMITH, a leading owner and developer of high-quality, mixed-use properties in the Washington, DC market, plan to work together to deliver one of the most robust network infrastructure deployments in any urban environment. 5G, with local area compute edges, could make National Landing a prototype for smart cities of the future and create a unified consumer experience across asset types.

“The goal of this collaboration with AT&T is to further enhance National Landing and create the only neighborhood that provides entrepreneurs, universities, and global technology companies the digital infrastructure necessary to shape the future of their industries,” said Matt Kelly, CEO at JGB SMITH. “We want to equip innovators with the foundational amenities to revolutionize the way they work, giving them an edge above their competition and the confidence to choose National Landing as their home to ideate and innovate locally – and scale globally.”
