This multi-part series explores a broad range of aspects regarding fifth generation (5G) wireless networks. In this final episode, 5G-oriented National Cyber Strategies are discussed and future 5G devices are examined.
Fifth Generation Cellular
The 5th generation (5G) of wireless technology will soon be available with the launching of 5G wireless networks along with compatible cellular technologies. 5G is built on the 802.11ac Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) wireless networking standard. Speeds are anywhere from 10x to 100x faster than 4G. CSIAC discusses this further along with the impacts of IoT and mobile devices that 5G will or may cause.
This four-part podcast series is a discussion between CSIAC Senior Science Advisor, Dr. Paul Losiewicz and Dr. Carl Kutsche of Idaho National Laboratory.
This episode will discuss new 5G capabilities and applications, this includes mission-critical services, massive Internet of Things (IoT), and enhanced mobile broadband. It also explores potential cybersecurity concerns involving 5G technology and methods to mitigate these issues.
This episode will discuss 5G infrastructure changes and examine the varying properties of different frequencies. Multiple private network architectures as well as INL secure wireless capabilities will be described.
This initial podcast episode will describe the basics of 5G, including the evolution of this wireless technology. It will touch on the potential applications it will enable and examine spectrum issues associated with 5G.
