The State of Nevada, City of Las Vegas and NTT have inked an agreement to advance and accelerate smart technologies, following a smart city proof of concept that began in September.

NTT Group will provide the smart city offering to the city commercially, with Las Vegas starting the trial-use of the solution during spring 2019, for a consideration of the full-scale service beginning in summer 2019. NTT is deploying high-definition video cameras, sound sensors, as well as IoT devices to monitor a geographic area within the city’s Innovation District, says the company.

The proof of concept provides information to city personnel to help increase situation awareness and provide a foundation to traffic management and mobility, according to a statement released by NTT.
