Indianapolis is one of 12 cities where Comcast is launching a wireless network that can handle data coming from utilities, healthcare devices, and other internet-connected devices that businesses deploy.
The Philadelphia-based technology company plans to have established the "Internet of things" (IoT) network, known as "machineQ," by summer 2018. Other cities that are part of the launch are Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Detroit, Denver, Miami, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Oakland, Pittsburgh, Seattle, and Washington, D.C.
"Indianapolis is a great place to start the initial launch of an IoT platform because of the infrastructure investments already made by tech companies, like Comcast, and the tech startup community" says Comcast PR Director in Indiana, Mike Wilson.
