5G wireless networks are likely going to become more widely deployed this year as the nation’s wireless carriers start ramping up their coverage. The federal government’s use of 5G will also likely remain experimental in nature as the technology matures and more devices become available. Nonetheless, 5G networks that government agencies can use are no longer theoretical. The Defense Department plans to conduct 5G tests at four military bases sometime in the first quarter of 2020, with the first experiment expected to take place at Hill Air Force Base in Utah involving spectrum sharing.

QUANTUM CRYPTOGRAPHY: HOW QUANTUM COMPUTING WILL HELP SECURE 5G NETWORKS?

Article | February 25, 2020

Quantum Computing is the use of quantum-mechanical phenomena such as superposition and entanglement to perform computation. Quantum computers perform calculations based on the probability of an object’s state before it is measured – instead of just 1s or 0s – which means they have the potential to process more data compared to classical computers. A quantum computer works with particles that can be in superposition. Observing the market trends we can say that quantum computing will change our computer architecture, IT architecture, and even corporate structure.

Building Deterministic, Service-Based and Endogenous Security Networks in Data-Centric Way

Article | February 25, 2020

With continuous development and wide application of new-generation information technologies, digitalization, networkization, and intelligentization have become important directions of economic and social transformation and upgrade. The development and application of Artificial Intelligence (AI), blockchain, cloud computing, and the Internet of Things (IoT) all depend on data. Thus, data has become a production factor and the basis of digital economy. Data in the digital era can be compared to petroleum in the industrial era. However, data is intangible and infinite, and there’s a HUGE amount of data being generated every minute. How to make good use of data to create value has become the key to success in the era of digital economy.

5G’s promise: A new heartbeat for healthcare

Article | February 25, 2020

Picture this: An ambulance rushes a seriously injured patient to the hospital. In the back, the paramedic makes a video call with doctors while sending them real-time vital signs and images of the injury. It doesn’t look good. The paramedic pulls out what looks like an oversized ski glove connected to wires and grabs an ultrasound wand that a sonographer in an office somewhere virtually steers over the patient’s injury. The sonographer then reviews the images for signs of trouble.
