Chamber Promotes 5G Developments at JBSA

The San Antonio Chamber of Commerce continues to promote cutting-edge efforts across the Alamo City. In 2020, Joint Base San Antonio (JBSA) was selected by the Office of the Undersecretary of Defense (Research & Engineering) as the only DoD facility in the 5G NextGen program to administer two experiments: 5G Core Security and 5G in Telemedicine and Medical Training. The JBSA 5G in Telemedicine and Medical Training experiments focus on the use of 5G to provide medical telementoring and medical training anywhere at any time, leveraging emerging technologies such as augmented reality and artificial intelligence/machine learning.

The Chamber regularly participates in regional forums that tell other communities what unique innovative efforts San Antonio has to offer. The JBSA 5G project is just one of many, but a foundational technological program that is moving our city into the lead for innovation and experimentation. As the Chamber continues to tell the San Antonio tech and cybersecurity story during conferences, podcasts, interviews, international trade missions, and other engagements, 5G will remain one key effort that continues to draw new partners and companies to our community.
