5G promises to be a game changer. It is not just about faster, but also about enabling a diverse new set of services and vertical use cases, including the support of IoT. Security is fundamental to the successful delivery of 5G networks and services.
This heterogeneity of applications and scale of 5G communication will be challenging to balance the efficiency and accuracy of security management and policy control. In addition, the use of edge computing, virtualization, CUPS and network slicing creates new attack vectors that service providers need to consider.
Join this webinar to learn:
What’s new and different from 4G to 5G?
What are the security implications from evolving to 5G and IoT? What needs to change?
What service providers need to consider when planning for 5G security strategy
