Assuring the Promise of a Secure 5G Future

November 1, 2019

The benefits 5G will bring to consumers, network equipment manufacturers (NEMs), and service providers (SPs) are both numerous and game-changing. 5G will radically improve the mobile broadband services that consumers enjoy and enable connectivity to billions of global devices to create a boom in the Internet of Things (IoT). 5G will provide robust support for new use cases we may scarcely imagine today. But there’s another critical challenge that deserves attention: Security—particularly the need for validation and testing. On a basic level, the adoption of 5G will depend on whether or not 5G services are demonstrably safe.

whitePaper | December 25, 2019

The public cloud, often referred to as the cloud, is a popular model of cloud computing. Cloud service providers leverage the internet and make resources such as infrastructure, storage, and servers available for businesses. Third-party providers own and operate the shared physical hardware and offer it to companies based on their needs. This multi-tenant environment makes it easier to spread the infrastructure costs across a number of users. Companies around the globe are adopting the cloud to take advantage of core characteristics: Cost effectiveness. By using cloud infrastructure, customers do not need to spend large amounts of money on purchasing and maintaining equipment. This drastically reduces capital expenditure (CapEx) costs, saving companies the resources and time to invest in hardware, facilities, and utilities, or to build out a large data center to grow their business.
