NOT SO FAST: HOW CORONAVIRUS IS DELAYING THE 5G ROLLOUT

Article | April 20, 2020

Coronavirus (COVID-19) has been relentlessly spreading across the world. Countless events, both international and domestic, big and small, have been either postponed or canceled due to the ongoing pandemic. This was supposed to be the year the 5G network rollout would make the technology mainstream and widely available. But the much-anticipated rollout of the lightning-quick 5G network may now be in the slow lane. Because of the increasing spread of the disease in many European countries, various 5G network spectrum regulators have postponed the long-awaited auction of the 5G spectrum. These auctions were crucial for network providers to launch or expand the already existing 5G network systems.

5G judged safe by scientists but faces tougher radiation rules

Article | April 20, 2020

But the standards body behind the new rules says there is no evidence that mobile networks cause cancer or other illnesses. It has spent several years reviewing scientific literature on the effects of exposure to electromagnetic fields. It says the new guidelines will provide improved protection for forthcoming 5G technologies that use high frequencies. It is the first time since 1998 that the guidelines on protecting humans from radiation from phone networks, wi-fi and Bluetooth have been updated.

As 5G growth accelerates, CSPs have new opportunities for network differentiation and service growth

Article | April 20, 2020

Despite the COVID-induced interruptions in the first half of 2020, 5G preparations and deployment continued in earnest in the second half of 2020 and now the market – vendors, CSPS, OEMs – are ready to bring 5G to the masses of users. The arrival of Apple’s first 5G devices in 4Q20 marked the tipping point of global consumer readiness, now extending from early-adopters. After the initial phase of network launches that saw coverage built-out in major urban centres, 5G service providers should now focus on expanding coverage to as many areas of high-data demand as possible. At the same time, as CSPs gauge their 5G roll-out strategies, they shouldn’t ignore rural areas with limited-to-no high-speed broadband coverage. In many markets, particularly developing ones, CSPs should carefully assess network-sharing as a way to cost-effectively tap pent-up demand, especially given the accelerating remote working trend.

The network and security must converge for 5G-enabled edges

Article | April 20, 2020

In tandem with the deployment of 5G networks is the emergence of edge computing and edge clouds – placing data processing and storage in close proximity to where it’s needed on the enterprise edge. Moving computing closer to the enterprise edge improves network performance and reduces cost as traffic no longer needs to be routed to central clouds. 5G networks and edge computing are creating new business opportunities and richer consumer experiences. Many mobile service providers are planning to shift their network delivery from a few mega-capacity central clouds to thousands of edge clouds that support more agile, customizable services. Without integration, the new 5G network edges are where the new security challenges will likely occur. The performance of 5G networks has to be matched by the associated security and computing components. Without strategic security planning, the necessary security solutions could inadvertently create bottlenecks that negate the value of edge computing. Enabling applications to perform at 5G speeds to ensure expected user experience is one thing, but ensuring that this happens securely, across more network access points than ever before, presents an entirely new set of very serious challenges. Organizations need to be prepared today with stronger, broader, integrated and automated security foundations.
