1. Vital ultra-wide spectrum resources
Years ago, Verizon began securing large quantities of millimeter-wave spectrum. The ultra-wide millimeter spectrum’s massive bandwidth and near real-time latency will move huge amounts of data at super-fast speeds.
Our significant investment in this spectrum will power businesses to do more than ever before.
2. Massive fiber foundation
It takes years of hard work, planning, testing and innovation to roll out a 5G offering capable of ushering in the Fourth
Industrial Revolution. That’s why, in addition to amassing large quantities of this high-frequency, ultra-wide spectrum, Verizon has spent years deploying a massive fiber network. Our dense and ever-expanding fiber infrastructure not only supports the expansion of our 4G network, it serves as a solid foundation
for the Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband network. The possibilities are endless, from new Internet of Things (IoT)-driven innovations that will amplify business intelligence, to the creation of rich training, working and communications experiences through virtual, augmented and extended reality.
3. Dense small-cell deployment
Small cell technology is key to improving the cellular experience for end users, by strengthening coverage and data transfer speeds in areas where devices might otherwise compete for bandwidth, such as in densely developed city environments. Verizon has spent years installing small cells and paving the way for our 5G network.
4. Intensive real-world testing
To make sure you receive the best 5G experience possible, we’ll continually invest in and work to improve our networks, so we can provide the best network experience. Our research explores the capabilities of 5G technology, pushing the limits in speed, distance and capacity, and testing line-of-sight and non-line-of-site use cases in order to define and establish the thresholds of our next-generation network.
5. Path to 5G with the nation’s best 4G LTE network
4G LTE innovations like Gigabit LTE prove that even with the 5G evolution already underway, 4G LTE will be the underlying mobile broadband technology for the masses for
many years to come. And when creating the best 5G network, it helps to have the best 4G LTE network. Our 4G LTE Advanced network has continually evolved, elevating and pushing performance limits. Verizon will continue to operate the nation’s most reliable 4G LTE network alongside the low latency and unmatched speed of its 5G Ultra Wideband network. And you can expect continued enhancements from our existing network along with revolutionary innovations as we roll out 5G to more areas. Both networks will work together to give you the coverage, reliability and speeds you need to innovate, transform and disrupt your industry.
Accelerate the pace of your innovation.
Verizon has been driving 5G as a strategic initiative since the creation of the 5G Technical Forum (5GTF) in 2015. Our instrumental leadership in this industry committee has accelerated the development, testing and delivery of 5G to make this transformative technology a reality sooner than thought possible. In fact, Verizon has already deployed 5G service based on 5GTF specifications in select areas and is also currently deploying 5G New Radio (NR) based on the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) standard. With Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband, we are committed to providing the best possible 5G experience on the market.
