AT&T has participated in a US Department of Defense (DoD) and US Navy demonstration showcasing a variety of 5G-powered technology solutions that can support the enablement of a Naval Smart Warehouse.

The demonstrations occurred at Naval Base Coronado in San Diego where the smart warehouse concept is being explored by DoD.

AT&T’s private 5G network at the base delivered data throughput speeds of 3.9 gigabits per second with less than 10 milliseconds of latency when powering the demonstrations.

The goal of the 5G Smart Warehouse project at Naval Base Coronado is to increase the efficiency and fidelity of naval logistic operations including identification, recording, organization, storage, retrieval and the transportation of supplies.

Amanda Toman, Acting Principal Director of 5G-NextG, Office of the Under Secretary of Defense, Research and Engineering, said: “This is a key example of organizations coming together in a collaborative environment with our Armed Forces to explore the art of the possible in 5G.

“We’re not just building for the warfighter; we are also innovating with the American citizen in mind. DoD is working to accelerate the development and deployment of 5G-enabled capabilities across many use cases while ensuring those systems — as well as those of our allies and partners — are robust, protected and reliable.”
