John Zangardi, chief information officer at the Department of Homeland Security, said he considers turning DHS’ new headquarters in southeast Washington, D.C., into a 5G facility, FCW reported Tuesday.

"I've talked to industry about this, and one of my goals is to take our campus at St. Elizabeth's and turn it into a 5G campus. That would reduce the number of devices" employees need, Zangardi said Tuesday during a panel discussion at a Northern Virginia Technology Council event.

He said he believes 5G is one of the “coolest” emerging technology platforms that could offer potential benefits to border security, airport and law enforcement missions.
