Private 5G for the Department of Defense and numerous FTTx development ventures are being reported

Federated Wireless has successfully demonstrated a private 5G wireless network for the Department of Defense. The initiative aims to enable intelligent warehouse automation at the Marine Corps Logistics Base in Albany, Georgia, with the network set to be operational by July 2023. The private 5G network will support IoT applications including real-time autonomous forklifts and other robotics, intelligent security cameras across the facility, and connected devices to optimize inventory management.

DZS has announced that its technology underpins two fresh utility broadband initiatives. In collaboration with their associate Irby Utilities, two rural electric cooperatives have each expanded broadband to over 12,000 subscribers. Connect2First has achieved this in central and southeastern Arkansas, whereas FASTnet has been active in central Mississippi. RDOF funds have also been utilized, with an objective to connect approximately 140,000 homes.

Meanwhile, Lumen is reportedly broadening its Quantum Fiber services across 18 markets in 11 states across the country. This development will extend Lumen’s Fiber-To-The-Premises (FTTP) reach to thousands of new locations in each market. That will help the company’s mass markets segment bring online over 500,000 residences and businesses by the end of the year.
