In December 2021, Booz Allen announced the opening of a new, carrier-grade 5G lab in Annapolis Junction, Maryland, to support mission-critical client work further enabled by 5G integration and deployment, and serve as a testbed for internal research and prototyping.
Last month, Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger of Maryland’s second district toured the innovative new facility, learning about and viewing demos of the lab’s capabilities in security analytics, vulnerability testing, augmented reality/virtual reality, and more.
“I have studied the threats in the telecommunications domain for more than a decade. The quicker and more proliferated networks get, the more work we must do to secure them,” Rep. Ruppersberger said. “I was impressed by the level of investment in hardware and talent during my visit to Booz Allen’s 5G lab located in my district. It’s clear this is a company committed to being an industry leader in 5G security.”
