5G Studio

Redefining industries
with the power of 5G.
Verizon and Newlab have created the 5G Studio in order to support next-generation industry applications of 5G technology to transform healthcare, mobility, energy, automation, and the way cities operate. Selected teams from different disciplines and industries can experiment on the Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband network to build applications that transform how we approach and deliver solutions in every sector.

Engineers, entrepreneurs, and inventors from companies who become part of the 5G Studio will receive access to Newlab’s community and prototyping facilities, including the Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband network.

Fundamentally transform how the world moves—from how goods are delivered across land, sea, and air to new long-haul and last-mile transportation alternatives.


Redefine what it means to visit the doctor through new applications of telemedicine, physical therapy, home health, and remote robotics.

This summer, the Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband Network will go live on-site for the 5G Studio at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. The 300-acre industrial campus previously served as the nation’s premier shipbuilding facility, is now home to Newlab’s headquarters, and is the ideal test-bed for innovative technologies and pilot programs built for land, water, or air.
