With speeds ten times faster than 4G with much lower latency, 5G connectivity has the power to support billions of new Internet-of-Things (IoT) services across all sectors of government and industry. But for 5G solutions to yield the most value, it’s important to see what end users are really experiencing—on different devices, through different carriers, and with different apps.
Where is 5G connectivity available, and at what speed? Where are new networks needed?
An ongoing initiative by Booz Allen Hamilton engineers seeks to answer those questions. “5G in the Wild” is currently being led by software engineer Allison DeCicco and staff engineer Trish Wheeler as a vital component to Booz Allen’s efforts to support the 5G strategies of its government and commercial clients.
