How can 5G Ultra Wideband transform other industries?

Verizon and Oracle have collaborated to research how 5G Ultra Wideband can be used to transform industries such as manufacturing and construction

Verizon and Oracle have joined forces to explore how Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband can transform industries including utilities, manufacturing, communications, construction and engineering. 

The companies claim that, with Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband available at the Oracle Industry Lab outside of Chicago, partners and customers can explore, create, and test 5G use cases that create opportunities and solve their most pressing industry challenges. These range from carbon reduction to worker safety, sustainable building, and more.

“In 5G Innovation Hubs across the nation, Verizon Business has been working alongside startups, universities, and large enterprises, like Oracle, to help our partners develop and test solutions that can transform various industries — all powered by Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband,” said Tami Erwin, CEO of Verizon Business.

“The state-of-the-art Oracle Industry Lab is the perfect testing ground for this kind of next-level innovation. By uniting Oracle’s deep suite of vertical and horizontal technology with partner solutions and Verizon 5G, we will be able to help our joint customers reimagine the future of their enterprises.”

“Our mission at the lab is to bring partners and customers together to forge new paths and solve really complex problems in a hands-on testing environment,” said Mike Sicilia, executive vice president of Oracle’s vertical industries. 

“As we tackle issues such as sustainability, smarter manufacturing, and creating more resilient energy and water systems, it will take an ecosystem worth of experience and ideas to bring viable solutions to life. Without question, 5G will be fundamental to these developments and we are honored to be working with Verizon to help power the future of industries,” he added. 

The Oracle Industry Lab will feature both public and private 4G and 5G Verizon networks. As industries evolve, the 5G network will provide the backbone for new experiences, from vehicle-to-vehicle communication while driving, robots interacting on a factory floor, or thousands of sensors in a warehouse sending real-time information.
