Fifth-generation wireless networking, or 5G, is the latest advance in a series of mobile standards that propelled early generations of cellular calls, text messaging, and touch-screen smartphones. The network standard's speed and flexibility is poised to unlock new scenarios for the long-promised industrial internet, enabling massive machine-to-machine communication and fast data analysis from sensor networks, vehicles, robots, and medical equipment. In automated factories, machines that report their states would be able to schedule maintenance before a breakdown, and engineers could control production elements using computer models and augmented reality.

5G Needs Edge Computing to Deliver on Its Promises

Article | February 11, 2020

Edge computing will be a key enabler for 5G to deliver on its bandwidth and latency requirements. In the short term, it can enable developers to provide a “5G experience” at scale. In the long term, it will be necessary to optimise customer experience for real-time, data hungry applications. Telecoms operators have reported that 5G in the lab can deliver network speeds that are more than twenty times faster than LTE1. But, this does not reflect the experience of the average user. And 5G roll out in many countries will be limited in terms of coverage and capabilities for several more years, given that the ultra-low latency standards will only be revealed in 3GPP’s Release 16 later this year. This is why it is likely that, for 5G to deliver on its promises, it must be coupled with edge computing.

How Is SD-WAN The Fastest Moving Technology?

Article | February 11, 2020

A Software-defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) is an evolution of traditional WAN that allows businesses to leverage different networking options and transport services to connect users to applications. This includes the MPLS, LTE and broadband internet services. The SD-WAN is a better, more efficient means of supporting latency-sensitive applications. Enterprise customers can make use of this new network to increase network and application performance and/or lower costs, all of which contribute to improved user experience.

FCC Votes to Auction Mid-Band Spectrum for 5G

Article | February 11, 2020

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted on a final order Feb. 28 to auction mid-band spectrum for use by providers of 5G wireless services, but the vote spurred some criticism from members of both parties in Congress. The auction is scheduled for December 2020. The FCC, in a 3 to 2 vote, ordered that 280 megahertz of spectrum in the C-band be cleared no later than December 2025 so it can be repurposed for 5G providers. The spectrum is now used by satellite service providers, who are in line to receive $9.7 billion if they clear the spectrum early.

How 5G Mobile Networks Will Change IoT Security

Article | February 11, 2020

This technology claims to provide more efficient interconnectivity, and faster data transfers between people, objects and devices. All good things, right? But what security risks does 5G represent for the modern age? Some cybersecurity experts suggest that new vulnerabilities are versions of problems not entirely flushed out from 4G and even 3G networks. This article will attempt to explore some problems and opportunities that IoT security experts need to be aware of, and how savvy enterprises can be proactive about security in the age of 5G.
