One Giant Leap for Mobility: Recapping the 2023 5G Challenge

October 3, 2023

At the National Telecommunications and Information Administration we are working to foster the development of an open 5G wireless ecosystem to help the private sector bring new life and innovation to a marketplace held back by few vendors and little competition.  

One way we’re doing this is through our 5G lab at the Institute for Telecommunication Sciences, where we partnered with the Department of Defense for our 2023 5G Challenge. The 2023 5G Challenge tested whether an open 5G ecosystem can work in real world scenarios.

Challenge Structure Recap 

These results are now available in the 2023 5G Challenge Closing Ceremony video
