Los Angeles Convention Center Installs 5G Network




The Los Angeles Convention Center (LACC), owned by the City of Los Angeles and managed by AEG Facilities, reports that it is the first convention center in the United States to permanently install a 5G wireless network. The new technology was deployed at the LACC in conjunction with the “GSMA Mobile World Congress Americas, in Partnership with CTIA” on September 12-14.

5G is the fifth generation of wireless internet and voice services, improving on 4G LTE that currently accounts for around three-quarters of total mobile connections in the U.S. (excluding licensed cellular IoT). 5G will move data faster and be more responsive, increasing wireless speeds and capacity to transform services such as AI, VR, and video calling. It will facilitate additional technology uses including improved Internet of Things, autonomous vehicles, smart cities, and more. During the 2018 Mobile World Congress Americas, a three-day conference and exhibition convening the mobile ecosystem and its adjacent industries, a number of demonstrations of the new technology took place.

In addition to 5G, approximately 100 new antennas have been connected in the facility. All 4G LTE networks have been upgraded, bringing the best in wireless to future events held at our convention center.
