Q3: Besides adding speed, what direct impact will 5G connectivity have on networks in the future??
A3: It will give customers more connectivity options and future networks will have to seamlessly accommodate different modes of connectivity so that the user doesn't know which network they are on.
@larry_lunetta To what extent will there be security concerns?
A3: beside speed, it's ultra-low latency, better coverage and determinism
A3: but it's more about what use cases this will bring about like : Smart Cities with M2M connectivity for autonomous vehicles, crowd mgmt ; industrial IoT for RPA using 5G in manufacturing, warehouse, distribution centers etc
A3: and also wireless backhaul and wireless / cellular WAN for primary and backup connectivity
The industry is starting to tackle "cross network" security concerns with standards such as Passpoint. Identity-based access control is the key to a strong network foundation for Zero Trust and SASE.
A3: those use cases such as video surveillance, IoT, wi-fi hotspots, etc. all require location flexibility that gbps 5G and Wi-Fi 6E bring as an advantage over fiber.
