AT&T Details Forthcoming Updates to Mobile Network, Touts 5G, Small Cells, and IIoT Capabilities
AT&T revealed further elements of its plan to expand and innovate its US mobile network; the wireless service provider is on track to test fixed broadband services using spectrum in the 15 GHz band and pre-5G technology this summer. It plans on adding 28 GHz band spectrum to its tests later this year, which are expected to have a mobility component in early 2017. Although the specifications and standards for 5G have yet to set (they are expected to be released by 3GPP in 2018), AT&T mentioned that it was important to conduct early testing of 5G components in order to gain familiarity with the technology and smooth the network’s transition into a 5G later down the line. Enhanced broadband wireless constitutes the first use case of the pre-5G standard technology. AT&T also spoke about re-architecting LTE in order to build a network capable of handling millions of connected devices (M2M connections) within a smart city, including connected cars, parking meters, and mobile healthcare services, which rely on extremely low power and low latency networks of less than one millisecond in the air interface.
