Cornerstone partners with Signify to revolutionise street lighting with 5G and IoT connectivity

The UK's leading digital infrastructure services company, Cornerstone, is partnering with global leading light company, Signify, to harness the power of 5G and IoT to transform urban landscapes.

Cornerstone's visionary approach recognises the growing demand for digital connectivity in UK cities, and this partnership aims to provide an innovative solution to address this need by leveraging existing infrastructure. By integrating Signify's luminaire technology into lamp heads on streetlights, Cornerstone will build an Outdoor Neutral Host platform to enable seamless connectivity in urban environments discreetly and efficiently, allowing communities seamless access to public networks.

"This partnership is yet another example of our evolution towards neutral hosting and smart city solutions," said Nick Spedding, New Business Manager at Cornerstone. "We're committed to bringing connectivity to urban and dense urban areas across the UK where currently connectivity is not in place or limited, enabling access to public networks is at everyone's fingertips."

Cornerstone's role as a neutral host in this partnership underscores its commitment to enabling seamless connectivity deployment across diverse urban landscapes. The first project under this partnership will be deployed across three cities, laying the foundation for future expansion and innovation in the field of smart city infrastructure.

"This collaboration with Cornerstone marks an exciting opportunity to converge the strengths of two industry leaders," said Khalid Aziz, SVP and Managing Director of the BrightSites Business Unit at Signify. "By harnessing the power of 5G and IoT through our street lighting solution, we are illuminating streets and paving the way for a more connected and sustainable future."

With the project set to launch within the next 10 weeks, both companies are poised to lead the market in driving innovation and progress across the UK.
