5G, the next generation of telecommunications technology, has security engineered into its very foundation. That includes the radio access network, or RAN, which lets users onto the network. It also includes network core, responsible for authentication, encryption, and digital traffic management.
The prior generation of mobile, 4G, has operated for almost 10 years without any major security issues. 5G makes use of 4G’s best defensive technology, while adding new innovations that make it even more secure.
Glenn Schloss of Huawei looks at the features of 5G that will improve on the previous generation of wireless technology, and explains why 5G will deliver a more secure communications environment.
