Description:

Lake Nona is setting the stage as the first fully connected community, where technology-based solutions are piloted among thousands of residents, otherwise known as “citizen scientists”.

The living lab is powered by Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband network, enabling real-time data for the city center’s healthcare, autonomous mobility, wellness, education, and Tavistock’s connected retail infrastructure. Together, Lake Nona, Verizon, and Tavistock are making it possible for enterprises to introduce innovation with more resources and less barriers, closing the gap between ideation and real-life application.

Tune in for a closer look at life inside of a connected community as we hear from Verizon, Tavistock, and Lake Nona about what the future holds for this innovation hub.
