This Week in 5G: That’s No Moon


5G helped usher in the latest tale in the Star Wars universe this week alongside new deployments and use cases. Let’s take a look!

Verizon and Disney teamed up to show off 5G’s low latency at a party celebrating the new Star Wars movie, showing actors dressed as characters in a remote location to guests at the party in Hollywood on an interactive screen.

Around the world, 50 commercial 5G networks are now available—and that number will only grow in 2020.

Verizon launched 5G service in Los Angeles, Des Moines, Hoboken and Memphis this week.

Ericsson deployed the first cloud-native and container-based evolved packet core for 4G and 5G services.

The New York Times tested its 5G technologies at Sunday’s Dolphins/Giants game as part of a broader push in newsrooms to integrate 5G into reporting.

5G will make workplaces more connected than ever before, enabling even better experiences with  enhanced video conferencing and other collaboration tools that make it even easier to telecommute.

That’s all for this week! May the force be with you.
