See first hand how 5G solutions have the potential to transform your business.

  • Accelerated Access

    Keep the line moving with fast-lane access.

    Wicket offers opt-in facial recognition technology that, when paired with the incredibly low lag times and cloud-based processing power of Verizon 5G Edge, could quickly identify season ticket holders, employees, and others so they can quickly pass through checkpoints.
