Seven U.S. military installations named for 5G testing and experimentation
The Pentagon has selected seven new military locations for experimentation and testing related to high-speed 5G cellular service.
These seven military installations join four bases that were announced last year as locations for testing and one announced in May this year. So now there are now 12 installations that have been chosen to participate in 5G-related activities.
“5G is the fifth-generation of cellular network technology. It is the advent of ubiquitous connectivity – the connectivity of everything and everyone everywhere – through wireless communications,” the department explains in a press release. “DOD’s efforts focus on large-scale experimentation and prototyping of dual-use (military and commercial) 5G technology that will provide high speeds, quicker response times and the ability to handle many more wireless devices than current wireless technology.”
According to the Defense Department the seven new installations include: Naval Base Norfolk, Virginia; Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii; Joint Base San Antonio, Texas; the National Training Center at Fort Irwin, Calif.; Fort Hood, Texas; Camp Pendleton, California; and Tinker Air Force Base, Oklahoma.
Previously chosen locations included: Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Washington; Hill Air Force Base, Utah; Naval Base San Diego, California; Marine Corps Logistics Base Albany, Georgia; and Nellis Air Force Base, Nevada.
