By 2024, we’re going to have more than 22 billion connected devices in the world, according to Ericsson projections. And that’s not even including smartphones. We’re talking connected cars, robots, shipping containers, agricultural fields, traffic systems and things we can’t even imagine yet. It’s a vast opportunity but it also brings vast risk. How do you keep billions of devices secure? How about the networks they run on? How do you make sure the data you get from all those devices isn’t compromised?There is no one-size-fits-all solution, but let’s look at three pillars of the new and comprehensive security approach necessary to make the IoT safe for business. Your smartphone is a trusted connected device. For example, it is generally the only device allowed easily on corporate networks, and 90 percent of Swedes between the age of 20-40 use a mobile-phone-based digital national identity system launched just seven years ago.

Article | April 1, 2020

The pace of 5G rollouts in 2019 surpassed expectations, and in 2020 the momentum is only increasing. So far, 5G usage has been predominantly 4G-style mobile broadband (MBB) services driving smartphone traffic growth. By the end of 2019, global mobile data traffic was around 40 exabytes (EB) per month and by 2025 we expect 160 EB, with video-related streaming accounting for about three-quarters of the total. Beyond MBB, 5G will allow service providers to address more of the IT value chain as they accommodate and enable an emerging range of enterprise applications and services. What will it take to spur this next wave of 5G across a broad spectrum of use-cases? RAN virtualization is a key element to the story of 5G reaching beyond MBB.
