Boldyn Networks Installs 5G Connectivity Network at Fort Jackson

Boldyn Networks has equipped the U.S. Army Fort Jackson base with a 5G wireless network, providing connectivity to nearly 100,000 military members and their families. 

Brig. Gen. Jason Kelley, commanding general of the Army Training Center and Fort Jackson, said the 5G network boosts the base’s communications capabilities to improve mission readiness and quality of life at the military installation. 

More than half of all Army soldiers undergo basic combat training at the base annually, Boldyn Networks said.

According to the company, it used its existing Department of Defense relationships to secure approvals for the 5G network activation at Fort Jackson, noting the challenges that come with connectivity infrastructure installation at military bases stemming from varying security measures and restrictions.

Boldyn also secured rights to equip more than 40 bases with the network, in addition to the 75 military sites the company already serves.

Christos Karmis, Boldyn’s CEO in the United States, said the company’s work with the military creates the foundation for enabling smart bases in the future.
