The Danger and Opportunity in 5G Connectivity and IoT
Posted in: Mobile & Wireless at 24/10/2018 21:35
The advent of 5G presents an opportunity for us to think the exploding number of IoT devices and how we securely connect to the digital world.
There is a lot of buzz building over fifth-generation mobile networks (5G) and how they will revolutionize the fast-growing numbers of internet-connected devices — but what about security?
What makes 5G so closely tied to billions of Internet of Things (IoT) devices is its speed (5G is expected to be 10 times faster than 4G LTE), low latency, and the fact that it is expected to use Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) technology to connect large numbers of far-flung, low-power IoT devices for industrial applications.
