5G

AT&T Policy Forum hosted a workshop on the benefits of low latency and prioritization in a 5G world. Technology demonstrations at the workshop showcased how class-of-service distinctions are necessary to enable next-generation wireless networks to minimize latency, jitter, and packet loss for those services and applications most sensitive to their effects, without degrading applications and services that are less sensitive.

The demonstrations included smart glasses, a wirelessly-controlled robot, broadband telemedicine technologies, and other services and applications.
