Verizon and Newlab have announced the first companies testing new 5G applications through their 5G Studio. The 5G Studio’s first cohort of startups include Exyn Technologies, Ghost Robotics, Vecna Robotics, Phantom Auto, Ponto Care, and FOAM. The 5G Studio was opened earlier this year by the two companies to support the development of next-generation industry applications built on Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband network.
To make possible the 5G Studio, Verizon deployed its 5G Ultra Wideband and mobile edge compute (MEC) at Newlab’s headquarters in the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Leveraging access to 5G functionalities and Newlab’s advanced prototyping resources and product realisation support, companies from Newlab’s vast member community and beyond are able to showcase their technologies to address challenges across industries.
