BRYAN, TX: A new partnership between AT&T and Texas A&M sends 5G versions of lightspeed to College Station.
A&M’s RELLIS campus will begin deploying 5G test benches in the early fall semester. The telecommunications giant hopes to use fast technology to improve the education and training of students.
Administrators say the new technology will help with new innovations in robotics, road safety and even driverless vehicles.
“Much of what we’re going to do here is around the investigation and how this will affect the general public with autonomous vehicles, whether it’s augmented reality or virtual reality for firefighters or police.” shared Bradley Hoover, CIO of the Texas A&M RELLIS Campus.
Hoover says new test benches are key to training the next generation of 5G engineers.
“In addition to using the test benches as educational and educational aspects for the next 5g engineer or architects so that students can come to use the test bench as an educational platform,” he added.
And 5G isn’t the only innovation happening on the RELLIS campus.
The Department of Defense has five modernization priorities right now at College Station, including hypersonal, ai, autonomy, cybersecurity, and targeted energy.
