Viva Las Vegas! The Boingo team recently gathered with CTOs from around the globe at our Innovation Center in Las Vegas to discuss the future of connectivity and smart cities. From immersive guest experiences to AI operations, we covered it all at the Wireless Broadband Alliance (WBA) Wireless Global Congress Americas Innovation Forum.

Wi-Fi 7 and private 5G were key topics as technology leaders discussed how to leverage next generation connectivity to enable smarter, more efficient cities, with a special focus on disrupting the ever-growing Las Vegas hospitality industry.

“Las Vegas is booming with tech innovation, reinventing everything from entertainment to hospitality through smart connectivity. Championing the city’s rapid digital transformation, the Boingo Innovation Center is a hub to trial converged 5G and Wi-Fi innovation and test new use cases that improve the way we live and work,” said Boingo Chief Technology Officer Dr. Derek Peterson.

Located at the Las Vegas Monorail Convention Center Station, the Boingo Innovation Center serves as a launch pad to test, trial, and demonstrate 5G, Wi-Fi 6/6E, Wi-Fi 7 and IoT pilot programs.
