Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband service at DoE’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory

Verizon Business and the U.S. Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory are working together on ways that 5G technology can improve national security, boost energy efficiency and aid scientific research. The #1 U.S. wireless carrier notes that the work is related to its overriding strategy of developing use cases for 5G that apply to universities, startups, large companies and consumers.   The use of Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband at the PNNL’s Richland WA location will help educate the lab’s federal sponsors on the impact and potential of 5G.

“With Verizon, we plan to explore how cybersecurity will underpin 5G for critical infrastructure and how 5G will drive transformation in the protection of endpoint devices, advancement of artificial intelligence, the science behind autonomous systems and related internet of things applications,” Scott Godwin, PNNL’s general manager of Corporate Partnerships & Alliances, said in a press release. “This partnership fits squarely with PNNL’s commitment to explore the capability of new science and technology to further safety and security worldwide.”

“Our 5G Ultra Wideband network is built to support transformational innovations and solutions across all industries,” said Tami Erwin, CEO of Verizon Business. “There’s no doubt 5G’s increased data bandwidth and super-low lag will help play a critical role in evolving response connectivity and mission operations for first responders.  We’ve seen exciting use cases come out of our 5G First Responder Lab and are thrilled to see the new applications that will arise from our work with PNNL.”

This engagement is part of Verizon Business’ broader strategy to partner with customers, startups, universities and large enterprises to explore how 5G can disrupt and transform nearly every industry. Verizon operates five 5G Labs in the U.S. and one in London that specialize in developing uses cases in industries ranging from health care to public safety to entertainment. In addition, Verizon is setting up 5G labs on-premise for several customers as part of an ongoing initiative to partner on 5G-related use cases to help customers transform their industries.

Verizon 5G Labs and Dignitas are also using the 5G network to enhance e-sports. The goals are to improve participants’ performance and recovery and to enable innovative fan/participant interactions. The first e-sports training facility is at Verizon’s 5G lab. It will serve as Dignitas’ west coast headquarters and home to its league of champions.
