5G will shift paradigms for industries and accelerate consumer experiences into a future that today seems like science-fiction. To thrive in this new world, businesses must prepare to alter their very DNA. The first step is to understand the capabilities that 5G has the power to unleash. You’ve come to the right place.
5G will shift paradigms and evolve consumer experiences in ways that will require businesses to alter their very DNA. Welcome to 5G.
Early Adopters in 19 Cities Can Now Access Mobile 5G Only From AT&T
This type of speed is equivalent to downloading a 2-hour HD movie in 20 seconds.

The network of the future has started to arrive, and this emerging technology goes beyond faster connection speeds. 5G network technology will ultimately alter user experiences and business efficiencies in dramatic, exciting ways. Additionally, it will eventually enhance Internet of Things (IoT) technologies, augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning (ML) across all verticals, in every corner of your business.
5G, the fifth generation of cellular wireless technology, has the potential to offer massive connection power and fast speeds that can help transform how healthcare is delivered. Not only does 5G have the capacity to impact the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT), it will help enable medical innovations using augmented reality, virtual reality, artificial intelligence (AI), remote medical learning, remote patient monitoring, and more.
5G is the next generation of wireless technology, but it’s very different from its predecessors. The 5G network is software based, so by design it can l deliver capabilities previously not experienced from the mobile network. This new mobile capability means the possibility for new use cases for businesses including some that aren't known yet. 5G ultimately promises to unlock new experiences such as augmented realities (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), driverless cars, telemedicine and connected buildings. Watch this video for an overview of possibilities.
On Dec. 21, 2018 our standards-based millimeter wave mobile 5G network went live in parts of 12 cities and in the first half of 2019 we plan to expand to parts of 9 additional cities. See story: AT&T First to make Mobile 5G service live in the U.S. on Dec 21st
We plan to expand this coverage in the second half of 2019 and launch nationwide mobile 5G sub-6 GHz coverage in early 2020.

Our 4G LTE network will remain in use for the foreseeable future. AT&T’s path to 5G started with 5G Evolution, which includes advanced LTE network technologies - like carrier aggregation, 4x4 MIMO and 256 QAM – that we have optimized. With 5G Evolution, we densify our network and upgrade the majority of our equipment so that it can be easily upgraded to 5G via a software release. This foundation enables us to deliver faster speeds now and upgrade to 5G when it is ready. Our first standards-based 5G deployments (including the mobile 5G we began offering in 2018 in parts of 12 cities) will be “non-standalone” 5G. This service will be delivered using the LTE network core and a combination of 5G and LTE radio technologies (including 5G Evolution), with 5G radios carrying download traffic and LTE radios carrying upload traffic plus signaling and management functions. Ultimately, “standalone” 5G will use 5G radio access with a new 5G network core and will interoperable with today’s LTE network. Even when stand-alone 5G is deployed, the LTE network will remain in place to provide voice coverage, and data coverage where 5G is not available.
Whether it’s for primary connectivity or as a secondary connection to ensure reliability, businesses look to fixed wireless solutions to help serve a wide range of needs.
Edge computing is bringing a sea-change to how businesses can use cellular data to massively improve their operations.
