5G touches almost every aspect of the way we live our lives. It’s not just about faster, bigger or better, it’s about utilizing 5G as an enabler to a series of services that we all will consume in every aspect of our lives. The time is NOW to consider the security implications and cyber risk profile that come with 5G. The business operational risk, legal risk and reputational risk of not only the companies who provide 5G transport, but all companies, nation states and individuals who provide the services that will utilize 5G. The time is now to evaluate the cyber risk posture and apply innovative thoughts to how we can approach these challenges today and build for what’s to come tomorrow. Many IoT (Internet of Things) services will utilize 5G services. The intersection of 5G and IoT brings an extension of the existing threat surface that requires careful consideration from a cyber risk perspective.

Nokia expands WING with 5G IoT capabilities

Article | March 18, 2020

In a recent release, Nokia announced that it is evolving its Worldwide IoT Network Grid (WING) managed service to add 5G and edge capabilities. This upgrade reportedly facilitates operators in offering 5G IoT services without having to invest in global infrastructure. WING is designed to help operators capture early IoT market share without having to make investments in infrastructure because of a pay-as-you-go business model designed to allow the scaling of 5G IoT services faster and more cost-effectively. With Nokia WING, operators will be able to leverage new business models and tap into industries such as connected cars, critical public services, and real-time industrial monitoring and control, as well as remote healthcare, the company said. Nokia has invested in a 5G WING lab in Dallas, Texas, to which operators around the globe can connect and begin testing 5G IoT use cases.

How service providers can unlock the coveted SME market

Article | June 7, 2021

For communications service providers, questions still loom over how 5G will be monetized. Many have voiced the view that the enterprise segment is where 5G will make its money, with potential use cases across a breadth of verticals including the automotive, manufacturing and utilities industries to name a few. However, if service providers focus more on delivering 5G business use cases to small and midsized enterprises (SMEs), this market segment could prove to be a fruitful source of revenue. As 5G deployments continue to roll-out globally, CSPs are focused on deriving value from projects and partnerships with large multinational enterprises. And they are eager to do so quickly to assure payback from their $1trillion investments in the next generation network. However, are CSPs blinkered in their approach to generating ROI from 5G? Are they limiting themselves by focusing too much on a small segment of the enterprise market, that to date has limited CSPs' involvement in early 5G projects, reducing them to mere providers of connectivity?

How 5G will change the face of the automotive and industrial segments

Article | April 1, 2020

5G is already being rolled out and is only going to increase in the next couple of years. The global 5G rollout map now covers over 30 countries and 115 operators. The number of 5G devices supporting gigabit speeds in the market has also doubled, with both operators and ODMs committing to 5G connectivity offerings. Market research suggests that 5G will account for 1.2 billion connections by 2025, covering about one-third of the world’s population and about 30 million 5G capable connected cars.

A SMART FUTURE: HOW 5G AND SMART DEVICES WILL CHANGE THE WORLD

Article | March 2, 2020

When one thinks of 5G, they think of cellphones and how communication will improve with faster internet. It will do so for sure, but that’s a very limited way of thinking about this great technological feat. What 5G will inexplicably revolutionize is the way we interact with machines and how integrated they become with our lives. Combined with AI, and smart devices we’re looking at a whole new way of life. So, let us look at what it all means for the future. Before we move further, we must look at what 5G is and how it is different from 4G. First off, this new technology comes with OFDM encoding which is part of an air interface design especially modeled to be flexible such that it meets the needs of other tech pieces with different bandwidths as well as scale for future applications. Compared to 4G, it will be able to operate on larger channels and that too, with lower latency. This means more people can work online at the same time easily with low lag times.
