AT&T can now deliver 5G using a drone

AT&T is known to go beyond what is possible by providing its wireless service in unimaginable places using Flying Cell on Wings (COW). In April, the mobile operator went into an indescribable field in rural Missouri to launch a drone equipped with 5G service. AT&T claims that this event is an industry first, offering fast 5G wireless service in such a remote location that it had no trees, houses or people.

5G for COW cows?

So what was the purpose of the AT&T experiment? Was it to provide 5G wireless services to the cows? Of course not. Before the drone was unleashed with its 5G wireless service, the area was covered with poor LTE service. In the event of an emergency or rescue scenario, the deployment of a Flying COW could have a tremendous impact, providing first responders and others with flash connections in seconds.

AT&T has been using COW for years, providing wireless services to those in need. His first documented experiment was in 2017, where he performed an experiment similar to the one conducted in April 2022. The drone is connected to a fiber data line that provides a secure connection and also power. The drone carries a small cell and antennas, which can be used to broadcast data. Once operational, the drone can provide coverage of up to 10 square miles. Of course, the range will vary depending on the terrain in the surrounding area.

So what does this mean for the future? AT&T is quite ambitious in its approach, stating that it would like to fly drones autonomously for months, without connections. It would do this by using solar energy. This could one day provide wireless services in areas where it is currently not possible to reach using traditional methods. For now, Flying COW can be used by AT&T disaster recovery teams during a crisis or by search and rescue teams that need connectivity. But it is also a look at what could be a bright future.
