Future G For Defense

DSI’s inaugural FutureG for Defense Summit will bring together DoD, Federal Government, Private Industry, & Academia to discuss goals & initiatives toward accelerating the adoption of transformative 5G and future generation wireless networking technologies to offers faster speeds, more bandwidth, and the ability to customize network operations in support of specific mission needs. The integration of these technologies will also be critical to ensuring the Warfighter can operate effectively in contested environments, where networks are compromised. DoD’s recent designation of future generation wireless as one of their fourteen critical technology areas underscores the need to act quickly in building the ecosystem necessary to rapidly deliver requirements to the Warfighter.
