Verizon opens 5G First Responder Lab with Responder Corp

Friday 9 November 2018 | 14:37 CET | News

Verizon, in partnership with Responder Corp, announced the launch of its 5G First Responder Lab, an innovation incubator that will give startups and other innovators access to 5G technology to create, test and refine 5G products for public safety. Located in the company’s 5G DC Lab at Alley– a membership community for entrepreneurs – in Washington DC, the facility will bring together a total of 15 innovators in three separate cohorts to create public safety products over a one-year period.

Each three-month cohort will give five first responder technology developers access to the lab and its 5G network, and also the opportunity to collaborate with Verizon and Responder Corp on 5G use case testing, insight creation, and go-to-market strategies.

Applications are open now through 31 December for the first cohort of the 5G First Responder Lab.

The announcement coincides with Operation Convergent Response (OCR) 2018 in Perry Georgia. OCR is a four-day exercise hosted by Verizon and Nokia, in collaboration with the Guardian Centers and Aegex Technologies, that brings together first responders, along with public and private organisations, to see how emerging technology can be used to help them save lives.

Verizon also recently announced it would invest USD 25 million in Florida’s Panhandle to build the most technologically advanced wireless network in the area which will benefit local communities, businesses and first responders.
