Here's why 5G and coronavirus are not connected

Article | March 21, 2020

The coronavirus pandemic and its ongoing consequences have given us all plenty to think about and worry about. But there’s one thing you can permanently take off your concern list: 5G has no causal connection to COVID-19, contrary to several recent misguided online rumors. In fact, according to a seven-year-long scientific study published just this month, 5G has no detrimental health effects in general. But it’s worth examining why 5G can’t possibly be related to the coronavirus from a scientific and factual perspective and why it isn’t a health concern in general. Plus, along the way, you might learn a little bit more about how 5G and cellphones work

AT&T expands its 5G network to 22 new cities and introduces mmWave 5G+ in some markets

Article | March 5, 2020

5G on mmWave frequencies is the fastest offering, but it has pretty severe range limitations. This is the same 5G technology that Verizon is using, and it requires customers to be in very specific locations to connect to it. But when you can get it, AT&T promises speeds up to 2Gbps. Only the Galaxy S20+ and Galaxy S20 Ultra support mmWave on AT&T and not the carrier’s variant of the Galaxy Note 10+ 5G. The company’s mmWave network, which they are calling “5G+,” is available in 35 cities. Last month, AT&T expanded its coverage of sub-6GHz 5G to more cities. This week, they are adding 22 more markets to the list, bringing the total number up to 80. Those markets include:

Why we need a new approach to network energy efficiency

Article | March 11, 2020

Our recent report about breaking the energy curve offers a blueprint for service providers to evolve their networks towards nationwide 5G while lowering energy consumption. In doing so, service providers can achieve something which historically has never happened before. They can finally break the network energy curve. Today’s mobile networks already consume a considerable amount of energy at a global energy cost of USD 25 billion. As we move ahead into 5G, the energy stakes look set to get even higher.

How to keep 5G data secure with software probes

Article | March 17, 2020

Enhanced security and privacy are cornerstones of 5G Core, but service providers still need to be able to capture quality, actionable data to secure the end-customer experience. Specifically, I’m referring to the data needed to perform troubleshooting, monitoring, customer care and analytics for marketing campaigns. But can this be done in 5G Core using traditional probing methods, without breaching security? The 3GPP standardization for 5G considers enhanced security to be an essential network component. Imagine, for a moment, that we live in a world where it’s common for open heart surgery to be conducted remotely, and I’m sure you’ll agree. The need for a secure, reliable network has resulted in the introduction of a new Service Based Architecture (SBA) that utilizes encrypted interfaces between network functions (NFs). Traffic between network functions is deployed in a cloud native 5G Core Kubernetes node and will not be visible outside the cluster, meaning traditional probing solutions are unsustainable.
