If the US 5G rollout is to reach its full potential, network security must be a priority. But what are the security risks of 5G, and how can the US win the global 5G race? On the latest episode of “Explain to Shane,” I sat down with Tommy Ross, Senior Policy Director at BSA | The Software Alliance and author of BSA’s position paper titled “Securing 5G: A Call to Harness Software Innovation,” which discusses the transition from hardware-dominated networking to a software-centric model for 5G. Together, we addressed the availability and importance of 5G network security tools.
