Indiana will launch a new 5G hub this fall to attract business, foster innovation and propel research and development in 5G-enabled advanced technologies. As one of only two metro areas in the U.S. selected for the launch of both AT&T and Verizon 5G broadband networks, and with diverse support and infrastructure assets across the state, Indiana’s capital city is positioned to be at the center of global investment and advancements in 5G. 
The Indiana 5G Zone, which will be located within educational nonprofit Eleven Fifty Academy’s headquarters at in downtown Indianapolis, will feature a 3,000-square-foot research lab used to develop and test 5G-supported technologies, products and service applications. With plans to launch this October, businesses, universities and research institutions will be able to lease lab space at the facility and have access to shared spaces for programming and events. 5G is the next generation of wireless technology, offering businesses and consumers enhanced connectivity, reliability, data latency, and capacity and coverage among devices and technologies.  The IEDC will provide matching funds to support company innovation and R&D through the state’s 21st Century Research & Technology Fund.
