Verizon launches 5G Innovation Hub at Arizona State University

Verizon’s 5G millimeter wave (mmWave) network is now being used by Arizona State University (ASU) at a 5G Innovation Hub located at the university’s Learning Futures Collaboratory, Studios and Emporium.

Students, faculty, entrepreneurs and corporate partners will be able to use this space to test and create “5G-powered educational experiences that are more inclusive, equitable and accessible.”

Digital equity and inclusion are at the heart of the partnership and the first program to come out of the ASU Innovation Hub will be “The Digital Equity Jam.”

Teams will use Verizon’s 5G mmWave and mobile edge compute capabilities to develop use cases that will help bridge the digital divide, focusing on critical areas such as health, climate, poverty, human rights and education The winning team will receive project seed funding, access to intensive summer entrepreneurship training in partnership with the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) and VentureWell.

Sponsored by Verizon, AWS and Inseego, this program is scheduled for early February 2022.

Arizona is an excellent location for such an initiative, because as many as one million residents, including more than 200,000 students, do not have regular access to the internet.

“Working with ASU, we have an extraordinary opportunity to research and develop new 5G-enabled experiences that can improve remote learning and help bridge the digital divide,” said Tami Erwin, Verizon Business CEO.

“Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband’s super-fast speeds, high bandwidth and low latency can enhance applications ranging from immersive education to connected communities. By collaborating with ASU’s researchers, we hope to accelerate the innovation process and develop technology that will harness the full potential of 5G and edge compute.”

Other plans ASU has for the , such as a Dreamscape pod where students can experience a biology class in virtual reality (VR) or a career arcade using VR, where students can experience a day in the life of certain careers.

5G applications are also being tested for athlete performance analytics applications and virtual fighter pilot training.
