Verizon and Apple will be holding a first-ever joint virtual event for enterprise customers to help them take advantage of the iPhone and 5G.
Verizon has been going all-in on 5G, initialing focusing on high-speed mmWave deployment. During Apple’s October event where it unveiled the iPhone 12, Verizon announced the rollout of its nationwide 5G network. Unlike mmWave, which offers gigabit speed at the cost of extremely limited range, Verizon’s nationwide 5G network uses Dynamic Spectrum Sharing to take advantage of the company’s existing 4G spectrum, switching back and forth as needed.
The iPhone 12 has been widely seen as a potential catalyst, making 5G more accessible and appealing to users. Verizon has been particularly eager to ride the wave, sharing the stage with Apple at the unveiling and now working with the iPhone maker on their joint virtual event.
The event will showcase how business customers can use the new iPhone 12 lineup and Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband to power innovative solutions for industries like manufacturing, field service and healthcare. Business customers using new iPhone 12 models on Verizon’s 5G network have the potential to unlock new experiences with apps that will take advantage of the unprecedented speed, massive capacity and ultra low lag time Verizon 5G can offer.
The event is scheduled for Thursday, November 19 at 1pm ET (10am PT). Interested parties can sign-up via the registration form.
