The USA's Verizon mobile network is building 5G with ultra-fast speeds, ultra low-latency and massive capacity. It has the potential to change cities and industries, giving people the ability to do more and make things better. Verizon says 5G can be used for mixed reality experiences, gaming hackathons and 3D holographic video. 

But it turns out that it can be used for the Emmy Awards too. With its recent conclusion, the show was one of the first live ones to use 5G mobile broadband technology in backstage operations. Using the 5G MiFi M1000 hotspot units supplied by Verizon, the team behind the award ceremony experienced never-before-seen levels of speed and low-lag connections.

Verizon used its 5G Ultra Wideband network alongside the two Inseego hotspot devices to support operations backstage. This included things like schedule management and communications.

Commenting on the occasion, Tami Erwin, the CEO of Verizon Business Group said “Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband service shows up for our customers in big spots. While everyone else is watching their favorite stars on the red carpet, we’re delivering super-fast broadband networking to our client; helping them deliver a great show to you because 5G built right is ready for the spotlight.”
