Samsung, WarnerMedia, Microsoft Join AT&T 5G Program

AT&T has launched a 5G innovation program to jumpstart work with developers, content creators and device makers to push 5G forward.

Participating companies include Microsoft, Magic Leap, Intel, Cisco, Ericsson, Infosys, Nokia, Samsung and WarnerMedia, according to AT&T.

Applications and use cases are expected to span consumer, enterprise and public sectors focusing on education, entertainment, gaming, history, retail and sports.

"What's vital here is to create the right conditions for 5G innovation to flourish," states Andre Fuetsch, president of AT&T Labs and chief technology officer, AT&T Communications. "We believe 5G is the 'yes, you can' network, regardless if you're a global enterprise, small business or consumer.”

As one example of the announced collaboration with other companies, AT&T plans to launch a 5G innovation zone on the Magic Leap campus in Florida so developers and creators can test devices and applications on a 5G network.
