5th Generation Networks and Security

This presentation examines the key issues in adapting current future 5G networks to military usage. 

The bandwidth requirements on the modern battlefield are exploding, and heading beyond traditional voice communications to encompass video, imagery and data.  One of the more attractive and promising means of resolving the tactical bandwidth requirements for current and future operations is the consideration of 4G LTE (Long Term Evolution) and 5G mobile networks.  

Traditional battlefield communications have been constrained to a twofold view of the world; a high speed tactical backbone suitable for intra-headquarters usage and a much lower capacity mobile tactical communications for the deployed land force. Future communications systems will inevitably require low latency and high bandwidth, such as is envisioned for 5G.  This will enable a re-think and adaptation of military communications networks towards one generic style node without today’s distinction between high speed backbone and low capacity tactical communications.
