AT&T Partners With Gallaudet University to Make Football More Inclusive

AT&T is a Fair360 Top 50 Hall of Fame company.


AT&T has partnered with Gallaudet University to create a 5G-connected football helmet, supporting deaf and hard-of-hearing athletes and coaches.

With the helmet, coaches can select a play from a tablet that will send the play to a lens inside the helmet.

“Together with Gallaudet, we are proving that connecting changes everything,” said Corey Anthony, Senior Vice President of Network Engineering and Operations at AT&T. “Our expertise in connectivity combined with Gallaudet’s legacy of breaking down barriers has created a helmet that not only transforms the way deaf and hard of hearing athletes engage in sports but opened up endless possibility for innovation.”

Gallaudet University is a leader in bilingual education for deaf and hard-of-hearing students.
