    Executive VP of Innovation at DFW

    Paul Puopolo shares his experience on the DFW proof of concept with a private 5G network and their plans for the commercial deployment.

    5G Innovation
    at DFW Airport

    As trailblazers in air travel, Dallas Fort Worth International Airport trialed private wireless networks to improve operational efficiency, support airlines and other partners, and improve the passenger experience.

    Network solution

    A CBRS private 5G network was selected because it gives DFW control over the network and the data.

    Network deployment

    DFW leveraged network partners to deploy and operate the wireless infrastructure and services.

    Proof of concept results

    Network performance and reliability improvements increased the efficiency of services such as luggage handling.

    Air traffic interference concerns

    The FAA concern is specifically over the 3700-3980 MHz range, that does not affect the CBRS band.
