Securing the 5G edge
Security at the edge presents a unique set of security challenges that differ from those faced by traditional data centers. Today new concerns emerge from the combination of distributed architectures and a disaggregated network, creating new challenges for service providers.
Is the sun finally starting to shine on 5G?
'It's been a profitable business,' said Elisa's Kimmo Pentikäinen of the operator's 5G launch. In its most recent financial report, the operator reported a gain of $3.50 per month per customer from 5G.
5G in manufacturing: Welcome to Industry 4.0
5G has huge potential to completely transform manufacturing. But there's a lot of complexity in this, too, and manufacturing companies need to make sure they have the right tools, infrastructure and drive to make 5G a success.
5G to usher in enterprise AR boom
As industries ranging from manufacturing to defense installations leverage the flexibility, reliability and adaptability of 5G technology, organizations that have embraced advanced AR applications will experience immediate benefits.
Operator personal cloud: Engage subscribers with a content hub
As 5G becomes the norm rather than the exception, the pressure will increase on operators to find new ways for subscribers to benefit from the technology. Personal cloud very well could be the first scale value-added service for operators who also are seeking revenue-generating use cases to recoup 5G investments.
5G Standalone: What's So Exciting About It?
5G Standalone makes a break from 5G non-standalone by integrating the evolved packet core or the signaling brain of the 5G network, which controls the network's devices. It prepares the groundwork for new services unique to this generation of networks, such as network slicing to customize enterprise services across multiple networks.
The network and security must converge for 5G-enabled edges
5G networks require networking, security and compute to work as an integrated solution with tight tolerances – not disaggregated technology stacks and teams. Without built-to-purpose technology, traditional security methods will likely create latency and bottlenecks that undermine the value of these new 5G networks.
Demonstrating the improved security of 5G networks
The NIST project is working on real-world tests with a group of equipment and software vendors, mobile operators and security service providers. It plans to literally demonstrate and document the strong security that can be achieved on 5G networks.
Drone tech and AI can take 5G deployment to the next level in 2021
Drone data capture capabilities can keep workers safer and reduce costs, which is why drone use is widespread in the telecom sector. But to maximize 5G deployment in 2021, it's time for companies in the telecom industry to give their teams an intuitive collaboration platform and AI tools to automate routine tasks and deliver actionable analytics.
Overcoming the edge security reality of real 5G
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.
5G revenue opportunities for telcos and enterprises
5G is highly capable of creating newer growth opportunities for all businesses across industries. This is also true for telecom service providers that have been facing immense competition from the increasing popularity of OTT platforms and services over the last five years.
Rethinking the telco of the future
The emergence of network embedded services, network slicing capabilities and the ability to spin up individual sub-networks with their own Quality of Service (QoS) and tailored service experiences will see 5G become a key strategic business enabler.
5G digital transformation: Capturing and analyzing data in a continuous flow
As 5G digital transformations continue to upend traditional business processes, enterprise organizations have the most to gain. The imperative for these organizations is now to identify ways to monetize the data they ingest in order to gain a competitive edge in today's fail-fast business economy. To do this, they must move data-driven intelligence closer to the edge of the network.
Survey shows player one is ready for 5G
Ribbon surveyed 5,000 dedicated gamers to see what they thought about the potential for 5G technology and gaming. The goal was to examine whether the technology potential was matched by market expectation or demand.
Who disaggregated my RAN?
While much of the network has already benefited from a wave of disaggregation and virtualization in support of 4G/LTE, the RAN remains the last piece of the network to be disaggregated. This blog post provides the background that has led to the industry's push for the adoption of an open, disaggregated RAN.
Five crucial elements of 5G security
CIOs, CISOs, architects and operators designing for 5G needs should consider five key elements: scalability, performance coupled with security, secure SD-WAN, segmentation and VNF/PNF.
Clearing the spectrum for 5G
Indeed, all stakeholders must continue to work together to create flexible models for spectrum management, including standards, incentives and enforcement mechanisms that promote efficient and effective spectrum use. In addition, they must include flexible-use spectrum allocations or licenses, while accounting for critical safety and security concerns.
5G fixed wireless access and ROI opportunities for telcos
5G World's Francesca Greane discusses the future of 5G with Huawei's Dr. Mohamed Madkour, in addition to the impact of the technology on vertical markets, and how technological developments such as mobile edge computing are going to change telco services.
The cloud-native telco takeover
5G and the cloud brings real structural change to the table and could deliver new revenues from a range of enterprise services that extend far beyond standard connectivity.
5G success requires security by design
With the introduction of 5G, the total amount of connections, users and the number of innovative applications will increase dramatically. More attention to the security of this growing landscape is thus required.
Demystifying private 5G
We are at an exciting time where the convergence of licensed and unlicensed access technologies will foster the evolution of private networks, public networks and Wi-Fi 6 networks. They will collaborate and compete to bring enormous benefits to the entire ecosystem.
5G's post-pandemic prognosis is hopeful
Many employees are now sequestered to their homes because of COVID-19, and the current 4G Wi-Fi network is experiencing a surge in demand. While the promise of 5G – lower latency and higher reliability and data rates – was just around the corner, wide-scale adoption has also been put on hold – at least for now.
The future of 5G: What consumers really expect
Although 5G will continue to roll out for several years to come, 2020 will be the year where it’s expected to prove its worth. With a solid foundation being built by significant providers and with more than 15 5G-equipped smartphones entering the market this year, 2020 could very well be the tipping point for adoption.
One giant leap for a common 5G core
Thanks to collaborative efforts by the Broadband Forum, 3GPP and CableLabs, operators are starting to evaluate new architectures that allow fixed and mobile broadband access to be supported by a common 5G core network.
The perfect pair: Edge computing + 5G
With the emerging 5G ecosystem, we are in the middle of a data revolution that has operators scrambling to overcome the challenges associated with having a centralized cloud computing environment. Edge computing promises to remedy these challenges.
