Executive Spotlight: AT&T’s Richard Durand on 5G Capabilities, Company’s National Security Efforts

ExecutiveBiz featured Richard Durand, client executive vice president – National Security, AT&T Public Sector and FirstNet, in its recent Executive Spotlight interview published Thursday. He talked about having 5G capabilities in national security efforts and shared the company’s over two decades of experience in supporting the federal government as well as its recent growth initiatives.

Here’s an excerpt from the interview with Durand about 5G:

“Our national security customers are very interested in understanding the possibilities our 5G services can create for them. Most of them operate globally, and 5G will be available to them wherever they need it worldwide. These customers will be very, very deliberate about deploying 5G into the areas they consider secure.

Currently, policy restrictions prevent the full deployment of 5G technology among National Security agencies. Historically, many of these agencies wouldn’t even allow cameras on the premises, but it’s clear they see the benefits of 5G services. Some have identified specific use cases; others will likely adopt 5G services over time. They’re building their roadmaps to ensure their transition to 5G makes sense for them.”
