Just as the transition from 3G, 4G and LTE to 5G will have enormous impact on future global communication networks, the same fundamental changes will affect the environment in which the Department of Defense (DoD) operates. In the world of the modern battlefield and the emergence of hypersonic weapons, “real-time” assumes a metric of ever-increasing importance — one in which the right answer delivered late is the wrong answer. In this article you will learn:

  1. The importance of 5G
  2. Challenges faced over available communication bands
  3. The importance of processing big data on-site, or at the tactical edge 
  4. The role of Fog and Edge Computing for 5G, autonomy and machine learning
  5. IoT device key management, privacy, data integrity, and other security concerns
