By CIOReview | Tuesday, October 23, 2018

Ubicquia, the global leader in simply smart, simply connected network and IoT platforms for smart cities, has announced its collaboration with the respected mobile industry executive Ralph de la Vega, who has joined as a vice chairman. His credentials include an experience of 42 years with AT&T Inc., where he served as vice chairman, CEO of AT&T Business Solutions and International, and president and CEO of AT&T Mobility. During his tenure, AT&T became one of the world’s leading smartphone and mobile Internet providers and expanded into new growth areas including connected cars, home security, and automation.

Ralph de la Vega said, “Ubicquia is truly in the right place at the right time, as the current trends in conversion to LED lighting, IoT connectivity, and demand for bandwidth—particularly the push to bring 5G to fruition—will spark more small-cell development in the near future.”

At the Mobile World Congress Americas in Los Angeles, Ubicquia demonstrated its Ubicell, Ubihub and Ubimetro products that leverage existing streetlight infrastructure to bring light control, smart city, and small cell services to municipalities and utilities throughout the nation. Ubicquia also exhibited in the South Hall, Stand S.2150, at the show, which was held from 12-14 September 2018, at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
