OAKTON, Va. AT&T announced that the company will consolidate the U.S. Coast Guard's (USCG) disparate data communications networks onto a single modernized data communications platform under a task order from the Defense Information Technology Contracting Organization, the Defense Information Systems Agency's contracting arm.
Fifth-generation wireless technology, or 5G, is poised to emerge in a big way into the defense market. While the buzz surrounding the 5G technology standard has been growing in the general public in recent years, the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) has been trailing behind commercial entities on adopting 5G due in part to both the slower pace of the DoD’s acquisition process and the hard-to-keep-up-with pace of consumer-technology refresh. However, officials at several defense communications companies agree that it’s just a matter of time before 5G-enabled military solutions are deployed and forever change the way in which the armed forces communicate.
OAKTON, Va. AT&T and the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) have entered into an agreement to explore and develop 5G and edge computing-based maritime solutions aimed at benefitting national defense and homeland security among others.
