RESEARCH PAPER: AT&T’s Legacy Of Innovation

The deployment of 5G will revolutionize fixed and mobile services with its ultra-low latency, blazing-fast throughput, and ability to support a massive number of connected devices. In addition to greater speed and responsiveness, 5G will redefine connectivity and the subscriber experience by enabling a new era of network-based intelligence, virtualization, and computational power at the network edge. Tactile applications that require instantaneous response and precise control — such as mobile gaming, mixed reality, smart factories and cities, telesurgery, and autonomous driving — will benefit and come to fruition. As 5G networks are deployed globally, many carriers are still focused on access. However, some providers, such as AT&T, stand out for their efforts toward enabling compelling use cases.
