Verizon announced that it has launched 5G Ultra Wideband mobility service in St. Paul, Minnesota, joining Denver, Chicago, Minneapolis and Providence as the fifth of more than 30 Verizon 5G mobility cities Verizon plans to launch in 2019.
Verizon also debuted its fifth 5G-enabled device with the launch of the Inseego MiFi M1000. Tapping into the power of Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband network, the 5G MiFi M1000 can allow first responders to rapidly set up mobile command centers with blazing-fast data speeds supporting powerful new public safety applications like object detection, geospatial visualization and more.
Verizon 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.
