US Air Force base to get 5G, FirstNet
The US Air Force’s Nellis Air Force Base and AT&T have signed an agreement under which the telco will provide 5G services along with FirstNet connectivity.
AT&T will roll out 5G infrastructure to support wireless data and voice services connecting the base’s more than 40,000 personnel and their families.
Wireless high-speed external and in-building connectivity will cover the flight line, facilities, dormitories and a medical centre.
Potential use cases for 5G might include:
- high-speed, low-latency transmission of data from aircraft platforms, sensors and systems to ground personnel;
- enhanced video surveillance and analytics for base security;
- virtual, distributed training using AR/VR capabilities;
- near real-time management of inventory and diagnostics analysis.
The FirstNet connectivity will enhance the communication capabilities of base first responder and public safety personnel.
“We’re honoured to equip Nellis with a comprehensive communications solution built to support innovative services such as 5G and FirstNet,” said Mike Leff, Vice President, AT&T Global Public Sector.
