Verizon debuts fifth 5G-enabled device in US

By

US telco Verizon has debuted its fifth 5G-enabled device with the nationwide launch of the Inseego 5G MiFi M1000.

Verizon says that when connected to its 5G Ultra Wideband network, the device — exclusively available to Verizon customers in the US — provided the bandwidth and fast download speeds required for applications like 4K/8K video streaming, virtual reality and augmented reality, mobile workforce and industrial IoT.

Verizon has also launched 5G Ultra Wideband mobility services in St. Paul, Minnesota, joining Denver, Chicago, Minneapolis and Providence as the fifth of more than 30 Verizon 5G "mobility cities" the company says it plans to launch in 2019.

“The Inseego MiFi is our first business-ready 5G device, combining bandwidth and speed customers expect from 5G, with enterprise-grade security businesses require,” said Tami Erwin, executive vice-president and group chief executive for Verizon Business.

“Verizon continues to lead in 5G, adding to our coverage area with St. Paul and launching the Inseego 5G hotspot, our fifth 5G enabled device.”

Verizon says that, by tapping into the power of its 5G Ultra Wideband network, the 5G MiFi M1000 can allow first responders to rapidly set up mobile command centres with “blazing-fast data speeds supporting powerful new public safety applications like object detection, geospatial visualisation and more”.

The telco says its 5G Ultra Wideband service and the Inseego MiFi 5G can also support telemedicine by enabling real-time interaction between healthcare providers and patients for remote consultations or physical therapy sessions using VR headsets and gloves.

“Additionally, advancements in real-time interactions for robotics and cloud-based artificial intelligence can come to life. When tethered to a 5G MiFi M1000 on Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband network a robot can interact with humans (or with other machines) with near real-time reaction speed,” Verizon said.

“We’re thrilled to introduce Verizon’s first commercial 5G mobile hotspot engineered specifically for 5G data connectivity in partnership with Verizon,” said Dan Mondor, chairman and chief executive of Inseego.

“By delivering massive amounts of data at breakthrough speeds, 5G will enable many transformative applications that once seemed impossible. The new MiFi M1000 makes those ‘use cases’ a reality by connecting data-hungry users to incredible speeds, with enterprise-grade security.”
