Smart 5G networks:enabled by networkslicing and tailoredto customers’ needs

January 5, 2020

5G mobile networks will provide even more speed and higher quality than its predecessors. Importantly too, they will also introduce a novel architecture solution that allows the creation of a set of logically independent networks that run on a common physical infrastructure. Each of these logically independent networks (network slices) can be designed to fulfill specific business needs, making 5G a truly smart network. It is anticipated that in the initial phases of 5G, there may be a limited number of standardised slices, however mobile operators will be able to create bespoke slice types where business requirements of customers cannot be met by any of the standardised slices.

5G Security and Privacy for Smart Cities

whitePaper | November 10, 2019

Wireless telecommunications technology has undergone a tremendous evolution in the last few decades, from making simple phone calls (1G) and sending text messages (2G), to connecting to highspeed internet (3G) and providing multimedia and entertainment services (4G). Futuristic technologies such as remote robotics and virtual reality are emerging quickly and are likely to see mass adoption, while 4G cellular networks have reached capacity limits and are incapable of supporting the uninterrupted operations of these services. It is estimated that data will reach 175 zettabytes worldwide by 2025, up from 1.2 zettabytes in 2010, when 4G was first being deployed globally. 5G therefore provides a much-needed mobile bandwidth infrastructure for a world of connected objects and smarter cities.
