Why 5G Networks and Services demand Security-by-Design

Although 5G can be seen as simply the next generation in the 3GPP cellular progression, it is unlike previous generations because it has been designed as a native, cloud-based network infrastructure to support the challenging demands of low latency, high device density and enhanced mobile broadband. These capabilities present attractive new opportunities for cellular operators and for the world in general but the more 5G enables, the greater the risks.

With 5G capabilities being relied upon for sensitive services such as healthcare, logistics and automated driving, it’s clear that security breaches cannot be accepted and the ability to monetise effectively depends on users – corporations or individuals – being confident that communication and data are secure.

This whitepaper looks at the requirements and demands of the increasingly network-reliant marketplace where security is even more of a priority in the 5G era than in previous cellular generations.
