  • Award-winning Nx Go software, tailored for traffic infrastructure, deploys for the first time in a U.S. city in the heart of “Silicon Orchard”
  • The smart city’s “IoT Control Room” – the first of its kind to be implemented in the county – features a wall of screens that integrates traffic camera feeds and data from LiDAR and more sensors installed across smart roadway infrastructure through Nx Go technology
  • Peachtree Corners features 5G-connected infrastructure communicating with autonomous vehicles alongside regular traffic, pedestrians and more


PEACHTREE CORNERS, Ga. – May 21, 2024 – Peachtree Corners – one of the United States’ first 5G smart cities powered by real-world connected infrastructure – today announced that enterprise video software powerhouse Network Optix has partnered with Curiosity Lab and has integrated its award-winning Nx Go solution, tailored for traffic infrastructure, into the city’s “IoT Control Room”. This marks the first time that the company’s technology has been deployed as a full solution in the U.S.

“We’re proud to be the first city to fully integrate the Nx Go solution for transportation infrastructure in the U.S.,” said Curiosity Lab Executive Director Brandon Branham. “Our IoT Control room has been a model for how other smart cities across the world can aggregate massive amounts of data from sensors across connected infrastructure into the future – so it was only fitting that we partner with Network Optix to process and display traffic sensor data. From fixed LiDAR to traffic camera feeds delivered over the 5G network, this data is critical to city operations that ensure roadway safety for autonomous vehicles, regular drivers and pedestrians.”

Nx Go software takes a wide array of devices into a single, cohesive network to simplify management and amplify data-generation capacity of infrastructure. At Peachtree Corners, cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) powered roadways feature sensors and devices installed across light and traffic signal fixtures, crosswalks, buildings and more to communicate with connected vehicles, autonomous vehicles and pedestrians. The management and viewing of information are critical components to managing the smart city. The transportation solution, poised to expand across the country, also helps generate critical data such as intersection analytics, car counts, lane usage and more to enhance operational efficiency and data utilization.

“We are thrilled to be partnered with the country’s premier smart city and Curiosity Lab ecosystem, showcasing different technologies from all over the world across its traffic infrastructure. This is the only location with the full range of Nx Go technologies available, allowing us to fully showcase the extent of sensors, LiDAR and more the city has deployed across their smart city ecosystem,” said Network Optix Director of Mobility Platform Business Development Marc Faubert. “Having Nx Go as the visual to display such technology gives Peachtree Corners a single pane of glass to be proactive and monitor, evaluate and implement various strategies to improve the city. With Peachtree Corners’ government leadership always innovating, there was no better place to integrate our solution first than in the heart of what’s becoming known as ‘Silicon Orchard’ by technology developers globally.”
