On June 17, AT&T* will begin making the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G available to AT&T Business customers and 5G developers through the AT&T Developer Program. This innovation ecosystem will kickstart the next generation of connected experiences and help define what 5G can do for everyone.

Customers on the new AT&T Business Unlimited Preferred plan can use the Galaxy S10 5G, Samsung’s first 5G device and the most advanced phone in the S Series, on our 5G mmWave (5G+) network. Our 5G+ network is available today in very limited parts of 19 cities1, with plans to reach parts of at least 30 cities. For a limited time, businesses can order the Galaxy S10 5G with 256GB internal memory through their AT&T account representatives for $999.99, the same price as our 128GB LTE Galaxy S10+.

“Businesses are leading the charge on the nation’s first mobile 5G network, and this is the next step in unlocking 5G’s full potential for those early adopters and innovators,” said Mo Katibeh, Chief Marketing Officer, AT&T Business. “With mobile 5G a core tenet of our 5G strategy for businesses, we’re making this amazing new device available so that the business community can begin creating new experiences and drive the next industrial revolution through unprecedented mobile capabilities.”

Our Business Unlimited Preferred plan gives businesses the connectivity and features to be truly mobile. With 20 GB of tethering and a Private Wi-Fi app, the plan helps customers keep their new Samsung S10 5G connected and highly secure while on the go. Prices start at $90/month with AutoPay for a single line.2

The Samsung Galaxy S10 5G is the first smartphone capable of  putting the power of our 5G+ network to work for you. It’s a supercharged Galaxy device—with the biggest screen, all-day intelligent battery3, and most advanced pro-grade camera system in the S10 line, including a sixth 3D Depth-Sensing camera which uses Time of Flight technology to let you capture video with a stunning blur effect.

CREATING FUTURE 5G APPLICATIONS THROUGH THE AT&T DEVELOPER PROGRAM

Just like we did when our 3G network revolutionized smartphones, AT&T is now kicking off 5G awareness and training programs for our 100K+ strong community of creators and developers. To further accelerate the impact 5G will bring, AT&T is calling on our most engaged and innovative members to bring their best ideas forward.

The AT&T Developer Program is challenging a group of developers to bring the future to our fingertips by providing them with a Galaxy S10 5G.

After attending AT&T SHAPE on June 22 and 23 in Los Angeles, these developers will be among the first to get their hands on the Galaxy S10 5G this summer with service at no cost through the end of the year. They will then be asked to push the limits of 5G and present their ideas for innovation during our first-ever 5G hackathon in Los Angeles later this year, where they will have the chance to win $100,000 in cash prizes alongside other exciting prizes.

AT&T is also seeding qualified creators who follow us at shape.att.com with virtual reality and mixed reality headsets to bring their stories to life. They will then compete for $100,000 of cash prizes in our 7th edition AT&T Film Awards.

AT&T is proud to support these great minds as they foster what is to come. Their innovation is an important element to our future and yours through the power of 5G.

INTERPOL WORLD 2019 – Exclusive Interview with the organizer, Anita Hazenberg – Director of Innovation Centre Directorate at Interpol Global

Zoltán Tűndik

Reading Time: 5 minutes

We had to pleasure to catch up with Anita HAZENBERG, the Director of the Innovation Centre Directorate at INTERPOL Global Complex for Innovation, organizer of INTERPOL WORLD 2019.

PICANTE: What determined you to organize Interpol World?

A.H.: Coinciding with the opening of the INTERPOL Global Complex for Innovation in Singapore, the first edition of INTERPOL World took place in 2015. Two years later, the second edition was held in 2017 just right after I arrived from the Netherlands Police to become the new director of INTERPOL’s Innovation Centre. I was asked to organize the next edition of INTERPOL World for 2019 and I have a strong desire for it to be a forum where we can together develop INTERPOL’s global innovation agenda through the activities we organize. The focus of the Innovation Centre is very much on providing innovation capabilities for INTERPOL’s 194 member countries, and we find it very important that all together, with all participants, we set that agenda, and that we have a clear understanding of what is needed. Many people think innovation is only about new emerging technologies. However, it also means being able to react here and now. If something happens, you can trust and rely on law enforcement that they are there to solve the problems. It’s about changing culture and procedures, it demands a total change of mindset.

 

PICANTE: Why Singapore?

A.H.: Apart from the support and foresight of the Singapore Government which offered us a fantastic location to build our INTERPOL Global Complex for Innovation here in the Lion City back when the INTERPOL President hailed from this great city, Singapore is a country with a strong focus on innovation and law enforcement. It’s only apt to also have the new Innovation Centre and INTERPOL World 2019 in Singapore.

 

PICANTE: What should the attendees expect from the Interpol World conference?

A.H.: Inspiration and awareness are vital components of INTERPOL World 2019. In the previous editions, exhibitions were a bubble that mirrored the developments in the business world. This year, we want to add another bubble into the constellation, and that is the bubble of working together and finding solutions to contemporary problems. This is why we have different sets of activities including motivational keynotes, plenary sessions, 32 co-creation labs, and working groups. In the co-creation labs, a law enforcement representative presents a contemporary problem and experts from the business and academic worlds respond. At the same time, we have also organized meetings of four INTERPOL law enforcement working groups to continue their discussions and collaboration: the Chief Innovation Officers Expert Group, Darknet and Cryptocurrencies Working Group, Drone Expert Group, and INTERPOL-UNICRI Working Group on Artificial Intelligence for Law Enforcement. In addition, the Chief Information Officers of INTERPOL will gather together during the event. Imagine, these five groups already constitute about 250 law enforcement senior officials and experts, add to these the participants and visitors for the exhibitions and co-creation labs, and you have an event of magnitude.

 

PICANTE: Who are the “top-selection” speakers of the conference? What’s their add-value to the tech world?

A.H.: All of our speakers for INTERPOL World 2019 are top-notch. However, I want to highlight a topic that should play a significant role in all discussions during INTERPOL World, that of ethics, privacy and human rights. The motivational speaker for the second day of the programme, Dr. Ayesha Khanna, will discuss ethics and privacy issues, as their relationship with law enforcement still faces questions and gaps that need to be answered. For example, do police still have the trust of our population and communities? As machines and algorithms get more and more sophisticated in their abilities to interpret and process information, people raise more questions on how police deal with their data. Thus, there is a challenge for law enforcement to be transparent. This is an overarching theme that will be emphasized during INTERPOL World.

 

PICANTE: What changes do you see as being short-term possible to implement in the cyber-security world after the conference?

A.H.: First of all, I hope it’s not only the cybersecurity world because I think innovation is much broader. Apart from cybersecurity, we will also talk about disruptors; ethics, privacy and trust within our communities; drones; identification technologies; smart systems; what would 5G mean to law enforcement; augmented reality; and a myriad of other topics pertinent to policing and law enforcement. The coexistence of the motivational keynotes, co-creation labs and working groups at INTERPOL World makes it a comprehensive conference for collaborating on solutions that hopefully could be effectively implemented in the near future.

About Anita Hazenberg

Ms Anita Hazenberg assumed her current duties as the first Director of the Innovation Centre Directorate, INTERPOL Global Complex for Innovation in Singapore on 1 July 2017. In the increasingly complex policing operating environment characterized by rapid technological breakthroughs, the Innovation Centre was set up to engage global law enforcement in strategic futures planning and to co-create solutions to emerging law enforcement challenges.

In the past 36 years of her career in the Netherlands Police, Ms Hazenberg was involved in various operational duties across the Netherlands specializing in ‘Violence against Women and Children’ and ‘International Police Cooperation’. She progressed into the international foray to take up several trailblazing roles, including as the Director of the European Network of Policewomen (ENP); the first Programme Director ‘Police and Human Rights’ for the Council of Europe (France); the founder and first Director of the School for Police Leadership; the first Coordinator for International Strategic Alliances and Deployment of the Staff of the Dutch National Police Commissioner; and as the initiator and Conference Director of the global annual law enforcement think-tank consisting of top-level executives – ‘Pearls in Policing.’ Ms Hazenberg holds two Masters, one in Public Administration and one in Change Management.

In the current digital age where technology has led to the fast convergence of the physical, digital and biological worlds, Ms Hazenberg believes that global law enforcement must better anticipate future challenges, and formulate innovative, efficient and resource-efficient solutions in response to criminals constantly looking to exploit vulnerabilities. The writings are already on the wall, and the global policing community must be ready to tackle the inevitable challenges that lay in the horizon.
