The advent of 5G – fifth-generation mobile communications – is creating a host of opportunities for government applications. A “smart warehouse” at Naval Base Coronado is delivering on optimization of the facility’s operations, including identification of materials and supplies, organization, storage, retrieval and transportation.
Meanwhile, the U.S. Army is developing augmented reality and virtual reality capabilities for superior training capabilities. Only 5G provides the low latency, ultra-high reliability and enhanced security for IoT devices and applications. And there are myriad potential healthcare applications, including remote surgery, wearable devices for real-time patient monitoring, and telehealth.
