Federated Wireless Helps DOD Pilot 5G Network for Military Logistics; Sal D’Itri Quoted - top government contractors - best government contracting event

An industry team led by Federated Wireless has helped the Department of Defense test a 5G network model using shared spectrum bandwidth as part of a project to modernize warehouse operations at a U.S. Marine Corps installation in Georgia.

The Smart Warehouse Technology prototype reached a download speed of 1.5 gigabits per second and a latency rate of 15 sub milliseconds over a prototype 5G link in the demonstration at Marine Corps Logistics Base Albany, the wireless communications company said Thursday.

Federated Wireless developed the automated sharing framework consisting of a spectrum controller and a sensor network for the pilot program’s Citizens Broadband Radio Service spectrum band as the prime contractor for the DOD 5G-to-Next G Initiative.

Amazon Web Services, Cisco, Vectrus, Peraton Labs, Capstone Partners and JMA are the other companies supporting private network deployment efforts on the military base.

Sal D’Itri, vice president and general manager of Federated Wireless’ public sector business, said the company aims to help DOD and commercial enterprises access shared spectrum for 5G-enabled internet of things applications.
