Dublin's innovative 5G neutral host network

Dublin City’s “first of its kind” 5G neutral host network offers wholesale access to multiple operators while reducing infrastructure costs. The project uses ‘street level’ telecommunication and 5G infrastructure by discretely placing small wireless networking cells on existing structures, such as lamp posts and solar compactor bins.
