Marines pilot 5G for smart logistics

The Marine Corps Logistics Command in Albany, Georgia, is working with Federated Wireless and other technology companies to build out a 5G network in support of new smart warehouses. The new network could improve the Marine Corps' logging of receipts, storage, inventory control and auditing of supplies that support global operations, according to the release.
