Calvin Gray with T-Mobile Talks Future of 5G on the Georgia Podcast
Atlanta is known as the cradle for wireless communication.  In our studio is ‘the man behind the mobile network’.  Calvin Gray was the first of four engineering employees for T-Mobile.  He will tell us about T-Mobile’s advanced technology, 5G and the future of wireless communications.
Calvin Gray is the Senior Director of Engineering and Operations at T-Mobile and is often known as the “man behind the mobile network.” He fell into the wireless industry by luck in 1984 and moved to Atlanta in the ‘90s, where he became one of the first four engineering employees for T-Mobile. His ingenuity helped to build the very first network site in 1996-97 – long before it was mainstream – and he has since helped the company build 2,300 cell towers and make significant enhancements to local networks ahead of the Super Bowl. To ensure the strength of the network, they enhanced it in a way so that it would cover way more people than T-Mobile currently serves and made it a point to leave the infrastructure in place to continue to serve Atlanta – a game-changer for residents as they prepare for the launch of 5G.

You’ve been called the “man behind the mobile network” here in Atlanta. Tell us a bit about your long tenure with T-Mobile. How did you get started? What do you love about working with the company?
You are also an Atlanta resident. How has your work in Atlanta made a difference to your own community?
Tell us a bit about the work your team did to prepare Atlanta for the SuperBowl – and how you ensured the results of that work would remain for residents and visitors?
Why is Atlanta such an important market for T-Mobile?
What is the craziest memory or story you have of working in the field?
The launch of 5G is just around the corner. Can you tell us a bit about what 5G will look like for businesses here in Atlanta? How will it make things easier for consumers?
