Some private 5G for the DoD and yet more FTTx expansion projects:

Federated Wireless has completed a demo of a 5G private wireless network for the Department of Defense. The plan is to support smart warehouse automation at the Marine Corps Logistics Base in Albany, Georgia, with a go-live date next month (July 2023). The private 5G network will support IoT applications such as real-time robotics for the autonomous forklifts and such, smart security cameras throughout the facility, and connected equipment for optimizing inventory management and such.

DZS says its technology is powering two new utility broadband initiatives. Along with their partner Irby Utilities, two rural electric cooperatives have each deployed broadband to more than 12K subscribers. Connect2First did so in central and southeastern Arkansas, while FASTnet has been taking on central Mississippi. RDOF funding is also involved, with a goal of connecting some 140K homes.

And Lumen says it is expanding its Quantum Fiber services in 18 markets spread across 11 states nationwide. The move will extend Lumen’s FTTP reach to thousands of endpoints in each market. That will aid in the company’s mass markets division’s efforts to connect more than 500K homes and small businesses on-net this year.
