Welcome to the “5G & Pacific Northwest National Laboratory: Shaping Technologies of National Importance” podcast series part one on the Path to 5G hosted on Government Technology Insider. I’m your host, Matt Langan.
5G connectivity will shift how federal, state, and local governments can execute on their missions. For the U.S. Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (or PNNL) in Richland, Washington, the technology will open up a new array of capabilities.
From robots to 360-degree cameras, 5G is providing the flexibility, power, and connectivity needed to broaden public sector capabilities. Now, and in the future, 5G will continue to innovate.
Part 1 of our 4 part series, Scott Godwin, General Manager in the National Security Directorate at PNNL, and Margaret Brooks, Senior Manager 5G Solution/MEC Innovation at Verizon, will touch on PNNL’s journey to getting 5G millimeter wave technology in their lab.
