5G for America.
Discover a new breed of 5G network.
America’s first cloud-native 5G network means more than faster smartphone speeds. It will completely transform the way we live, work and play, with unlimited possibilities for all.
We’ll draw on our 40 years of disruption to democratize wireless and create an open platform that allows us, as a nation, to do what we’ve always done best: create, collaborate and build.
Join us as we build the 5G network of the future.
Built on American innovation.
As a core member of the O-RAN Alliance, we’ll drive innovation through open interfaces and embedded intelligence at every level of the network.
Software-Based & Programmable
A more flexible, digital and agile network decoupled from massive rooms of expensive, stationary hardware to better serve the capacity and location needs of users.
Virtual end-to-end networks for unique use cases with customizable security and quality of service.
Software-based network management for provisioning and configuration, enabling increased speed to market with services and features.
One of the first networks to utilize a blend of low-, mid- and high-band spectrum with native carrier aggregation.
Through automation and AI in a greenfield design, the network can be managed to meet the growing needs for capacity, security, mobility and IoT.
& Open Interface
Disaggregation of software and hardware allows for new network architecture that increases flexibility, reduces costs and speeds deployment.
Digital centralized control of the network optimizes performance, improves security and minimizes costs.
We’re reimagining connectivity through new platforms, new business models and new ways of thinking to meet the convergence of wireless, data analytics, AI and the cloud.
