Our world is becoming more connected, and 5G is a technology that has the propensity to give our warfighter a competitive advantage against our adversaries. 5G is a complicated capability that can transfer large quantities of data, but with this innovation, there are many considerations in the realm of cyber security. Mobile 5G can give our troops communications and connections in the most remote warzones, but there are several obstacles to overcome to get the technology to the edge. The rapid innovation of network connectivity is critical to keep up with US near-peer competitors. DoD experts discuss 5G implementations in national security and explore what is next for 5G.
