Cincinnati Bell is partnering with the Oregon District Business Association to implement a Smart City solution in the Oregon District. Cincinnati Bell is donating the upfront charges to deploy the Smart City solution over the next 2-3 months.
The Smart City solution includes the following:
- Installing fiber to provide free public Wi-Fi in the Oregon District, as well as analytics and engagement software to support local businesses and drive economic development. Public Wi-Fi will extend on 5th Street from Wayne Avenue to Patterson Boulevard.
- Cameras that will be located throughout the business district, alleyways, and various parking lots to support law enforcement safety initiatives.
- Links from the Wi-Fi portal that will facilitate donations to The Dayton Foundation, and the ability for users to easily contact legislators.
“Cincinnati Bell is committed to supporting the City of Dayton and Oregon District Business Association,” said Jason Praeter, President and General Manager of Cincinnati Bell’s Entertainment and Communications business. “As a lifelong Dayton resident currently residing in Bellbrook, I am especially proud that Cincinnati Bell is a part of this important project.”
“We are so incredibly grateful for Cincinnati Bell’s generosity,” said Kyle Babirad, President of the Oregon District Business Association. “The importance of connectivity within the Oregon District cannot be overstated. Cincinnati Bell’s work with us improves our ability to connect with each other and with the broader Dayton community.”
