AT&T Unveils 5G Roadmap

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Business

AT&T is unveiling its 5G roadmap to bring customers the next-generation of super-fast, flexible wireless connectivity. Technologies such as millimeter waves, network function virtualization (NFV), and software-defined networking (SDN) will be among the key ingredients for future 5G experiences. AT&T Labs has been working on these technologies for years and has filed dozens of patents connected with them. AT&T plans to collaborate with Ericsson and Intel to work on 5G solutions in their labs starting in the second quarter of this year, with outdoor tests and trials over the summer. And, AT&T expects field trials of 5G technologies to provide wireless connectivity to fixed locations in Austin before the end of this year. The trials will help guide their 5G standards contributions, and set the stage for widespread commercial and mobile availability once technology standards for 5G are established.
