Is 5G Ready For The Social Internet Of Things World?

[Full Text]



Terry Schorn





A game changer in mobile communication is presently happening today concerning affordable gigabit cellular connectivity. Gigabit connection speeds for cellular users has been a natural progression from previous technological advances in this area. We have gone through a logical progression of 2G, 3G, 4G, and now the latest and fastest option 5G. This faster 5G option will open up many new, game-changing opportunities for the commercial and residential Internet of Things (IoT) applications that rely on “always on” internet connections. Advancement in this technology brings new security concerns that “always on” internet connections present. This document will explore how 5G cellular connections have evolved with a security focus in mind. Security concerns, both present and future, are presented to the reader for consideration. Key security concerns include transition to 5G, changes in Trust Models, IoT strategies, consumer acceptance, and 5G availability. Please continue to read further for more information on how 5G will impact your future IoT strategy and how to leverage IoT applications securely and economically.
