How will 5G transform transport?

Article | February 26, 2020

If 2019 was the year that 5G’s impact on transportation spluttered into life, then 2020 will see it move through the gears and start to transform the way we travel.While the arrival of the much-vaunted, fully autonomous vehicle is still some way away, most of the world’s major car brands are set to release new 5G-enabled models which link into the internet of things (IoT) and offer drivers and their passengers a wealth of new opportunities. According to analysts Gartner, the share of cars actively connected to a 5G service will grow from a current base of 15 per cent to 74 per cent by 2023 and 94 per cent five years later.

How 4G and 5G networks are vulnerable to Denial-of-Service attacks

Article | February 26, 2020

Mobile operators are racing to upgrade their networks with 5G connectivity while at the same time expanding 4G LTE coverage throughout the world. Though the latest generations of cellular technology offer faster performance and other benefits over their predecessors, they're vulnerable to some of the same security flaws. A report released Thursday by Positive Technologies explains how and why existing 4G and new 5G networks can be hurt by Denial-of-Service (DOS) attacks in particular. For its report "Security Assessment of Diameter Networks 2020," Positive Technologies simulated external attacks against 28 telecom operators in Europe, Asia, Africa, and South America during 2018 and 2019. Specifically, the company looked at 4G and 5G networks using Diameter signaling protocol, a method for coordinating data among different Internet Protocol (IP) network elements.

A strong US 5G sector promises good jobs and better security

Article | February 26, 2020

On Dec. 12, 1901, Italian inventor Guglielmo Marconi demonstrated the very first transatlantic radio-wave transmission and ushered in a new age of wireless communications. More than a century later, wireless technology still is one of our primary sources of communication. But as our radio-wave highways become increasingly congested, each new generation of wireless technology is forced to ascend into higher and higher frequencies. The fifth generation of wireless technology, known as “5G,” will expand into spectrum bands Marconi could never have foreseen. Because it will allow data to be transmitted more quickly and efficiently than ever before, 5G technology has the potential to improve everything from search and rescue missions and medical care to transportation, real-time language translation and precision farming. It could allow firefighters to use thermal imaging to see through smoke and locate victims more easily. It could help specialists perform remote robotic surgery on patients who are far away.

How to accelerate network rollout without compromising 5G customer experience

Article | February 26, 2020

In today’s digitized world, consumers expect nothing less than the best from service providers. They are eager to adopt new technology but are unforgiving when it comes to poor customer experience. Consumers today don’t hesitate to use social media to voice their concerns, and once their complaints are in the public domain they can influence the perception of others easily. To keep their customers happy it’s important for service providers to keep their finger on the pulse when it comes to customer experience while accelerating their 5G rollout. Unfortunately, 5G comes with a new level of network complexity – and I predict it’s going to be more difficult than ever to understand the true experience. Is there a way to solve this conundrum from day one?
