Nellis Air Force Base Selects AT&T for 5G, FirstNet Services
Tuesday, January 14, 2020 | Comments

Under a new agreement with Nellis Air Force Base, AT&T will provide AT&T 5G services to the base in southern Nevada, along with First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) service to eligible public-safety personnel across Nellis.

AT&T will equip the base with 5G infrastructure to support wireless data and voice services connecting the base's more than 40,000 Air Force personnel, their families and retirees. It will provide wireless high-speed external and in-building connectivity across Nellis' flight line, facilities, dormitories and the Mike O'Callaghan Military Medical Center.

AT&T and the base expect the new solution will result in a communications platform equipped to support a broad array of technology tools and innovations that can help the base modernize its approach to its mission.

"We're honored to equip Nellis with a comprehensive communications solution built to support innovative services such as 5G and FirstNet," said Mike Leff, vice president, AT&T Global Public Sector.

AT&T's approach to 5G is based on a new set of network security standards that will ultimately offer improved encryption protections for wireless communications. New security features will eventually include enhanced capabilities to detect and respond to cybersecurity threats while helping to protect subscriber identities, network access and device authentication.
