Mobile networks call for 5G security inspector

 

The mobile network industry has called for a new European security testing scheme to check the safety of 5G equipment before it is deployed.

Several countries have stopped individual companies supplying equipment for their next-generation networks, citing security concerns.

Chinese giants Huawei and ZTE have both faced intense scrutiny.

The GSMA, which represents 800 network operators, said a testing scheme would reduce the need to ban suppliers.

Australia, New Zealand, and the United States have already barred Huawei from supplying equipment for their future 5G networks.

Qualcomm launches its next-gen 5G modem and mmWave antenna
 
Frederic Lardinois@fredericl / 1 hour ago
 
There can be little doubt that 5G is going to take center stage at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. After years of hype without any real products, this is finally going to be the year that 5G — and especially 5G phones — will become available. 5G phones obviously need 5G modems, so maybe it’s no surprise that Qualcomm decided to get ahead of the MWC news cycle by launching its next-gen 5G modem and new mmWave antenna today.

Verizon will launch 5G in 30 cities this year
 
Feb 21, 2019
 
Verizon finally offered some details about its 5G launch this morning: it plans to deploy the next-gen wireless technology in 30 cities by the end of 2019. The carrier didn’t say which cities those would be, how thoroughly 5G would be deployed throughout those cities, or when exactly the launch would begin, but Verizon did say that each launch would include some deployment of super fast millimeter wave radios.
 
“It’s just gonna be a total different experience in speed and throughput than you have ever seen before,” Hans Vestberg, Verizon’s CEO, said during a meeting with investors this morning. Spokespeople for Verizon confirmed that the company is not yet identifying which cities the service will launch in.

Xiaomi announces its first 5G phone, the Mi Mix 3 5G

Xiaomi doesn’t want to miss the 5G bandwagon — the company just unveiled its first smartphone that comes with a 5G modem at a press conference in Barcelona. The Mi Mix 3 5G is a new variant of the Mi Mix 3, a phone that Xiaomi originally released in October 2018.

The company is trying to create a bezel-less phone with the Mi Mix line. Instead of a notch or a punch-hole display, Xiaomi has opted for a sliding front-facing camera. The result is a 93.4 percent screen-to-body ratio. You can find two cameras on the back of the device, which give you the ability to shoot slow-motion videos at 960 frames per second. The handset body is made of ceramic.

There are a few changes in the new device. First, Xiaomi has swapped the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 system-on-a-chip with a Snapdragon 855 system-on-a-chip — the same chipset you can find on the Samsung Galaxy S10. When it comes to the modem, the company is using Qualcomm’s X50 5G modem.

5G - The Future Is About To Arrive

Let me be explicitly clear. The new 5G network that is most assuredly beaming itself our way makes "the existing communication model obsolete." This is critically important to understand for investors. The 5th generation of cellular connectivity promises blazing speeds, massive throughput capability, and ultra-low latencies. While I have written about subject before, I still do not believe that many people and institutions know just how important this new technology is going to be in a wide variety of sectors.
 
5G is going to have a huge positive impact on most major phone carriers, as the major carriers all plan to launch 5G this year. As they will become the provider of streaming services for everything from data, to TV content, to games, it is my opinion that they will eventually replace the cable and internet connections as there will be no need, any longer, to use those services. There will be a router in your house, or office, that will supply "everything." Also, virtually every phone will have to be replaced by the new 5G phones which will be a giant boon for the mobile telephone makers and their suppliers, in my opinion.

You might think that the new 5G technologies are far off so that nothing needs to be done now. I beg to differ. Keysight commissioned Dimensional Research to conduct the survey on which its state of 5G report is based, which included responses from more than 350 senior technology leaders and strategists from service providers and technology companies. Fifty-four percent of respondents said that they had already begun their 5G development, and 16% said they already had 5G partially deployed. Thirty-one percent of respondents said that they planned to deploy 5G within the next 12 months, with an additional 13% saying that deployment would come within the next 12-24 months.

Huawei tech would risk UK-US intelligence ties, official says
 
Mon 29 Apr 2019 14.26 BST
 
A US official has warned that the UK and any other western countries that adopt Huawei technology for 5G mobile phone networks risk affecting intelligence cooperation with the United States.
 
The escalation of the rhetoric comes days after a leak indicated the UK was prepared to give Huawei the go-ahead to supply “non-core” infrastructure – a security measure that the US said on Monday would not work in practice.
 
Robert Strayer, a deputy assistant secretary at the US Department of State, said on Monday that Huawei “was not a trusted vendor” and any use of its technology in 5G networks was a risk.
 
He said if an “untrusted vendor” like Huawei was used by another country, the US would “have to reassess the ability for us to share information and be interconnected,” implying intelligence sharing could be at risk.
 
Last week a tense UK national security council meeting narrowly aprroved in principle to Huawei being allowed to supply “non-core” 5G technology, despite objections from five of the cabinet ministers present and months of US lobbying.

EE to launch UK's first 5G service in May
 
EE will switch on its 5G service in six UK cities on 30 May, the first mobile network in the UK to do so.
 
People in London, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Belfast, Birmingham and Manchester will be first to get faster services with plans for 10 more cities to be added this year.
 
Prices for 5G - which will require new handsets - will start at £54 per month for 10 gigabytes of data.
 
Rival Vodafone plans to launch its 5G service in July.
 
"This is the start of the UK's 5G journey and great news for our customers that want and need the best connections," said Marc Allera, chief executive of BT's consumer division, which owns EE.
 
It admits that this is just phase one of its roll-out, with "full next-generation 5G" not available until 2022.
 
Several other countries have announced 5G services, including South Korea and the US.

5G: EE launches UK's next-generation mobile network
 
EE has launched the UK's first next-generation 5G mobile network, with a concert by rapper Stormzy live-streamed from a boat on the River Thames.
 
5G mobile networks offer faster downloads, but customers will need a new handset to take advantage.
 
At first, the service will only be available in limited areas of Belfast, Birmingham, Cardiff, Edinburgh, London and Manchester.
 
Rival Vodafone plans to switch on its 5G service in the coming weeks.
 
EE's lowest-priced deal is £54 a month plus a one-off £170 fee for a compatible handset. But this only includes 10GB of data a month, which can be used up quickly if you download lots of movies or games.

Japan to set 5G network relay devices on traffic signals

 

June 15, 2019 (Mainichi Japan)

 

TOKYO (Kyodo) -- The Cabinet on Friday approved a project to install wireless relay devices for 5G network services on traffic signals across the country.

Fifth-generation network technology requires more relay spots than the current 4G services as it uses short-length radio waves that cannot pass through buildings. However, there is a lack of suitable locations for new base stations as suitable locations already house equipment for existing services.

The Japanese government will, therefore, allow 208,000 traffic signals to be used as spots to set up the new 5G equipment, expecting to complete the network installation by the end of March 2026.

The new wireless service can send and receive data some 100 times faster than the current 4G network. Smartphone users, for example, will be able to download a two-hour film in just three seconds.

5G Modems and Phones Literally Can’t Handle the Heat of Summer Weather

5G signals that rely on so-called ‘millimeter wave’ technology don’t propagate well through walls, windows, people, or water, including water vapor in the atmosphere. This has been known since before 5G launched. It’s a limiting factor for where the technology can be deployed. But now, new reports show that 5G has an even more implacable foe: summer.

According to reports from both The Wall Street Journal and PCMag, the current bare handful of 5G devices available to consumers literally wilt and die if you attempt to use them in hot weather. PCMag’s Sascha Segan writes:

China just launched the world's largest 5G network

Updated 1351 GMT (2151 HKT) November 1, 2019

Hong Kong (CNN Business)China just switched on the world's largest 5G network.

The country's three state-run telecom operators launched services for the next generation wireless technology on Friday.

China Mobile (CHL), China Telecom (CHA) and China Unicom (CHU) are all offering 5G plans that start at 128 yuan ($18) for 30 GB of data per month, giving Chinese internet users access to the ultra fast service.

5G commercial services are now available in 50 cities, including Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen, according to Chinese state news agency Xinhua. In Shanghai, nearly 12,000 5G base stations have been activated to support 5G coverage across the city's key outdoor areas.

Other countries including the United States and South Korea launched 5G services in select areas earlier this year. But China's commercial network is the biggest, according to Bernstein Research, giving the county more influence over the technology's global evolution.

T-Mobile’s nationwide 600 MHz 5G network will launch on December 6th
 
Nov 7, 2019
 
T-Mobile’s nationwide 5G network — built on the company’s 600 MHz band of spectrum — will launch on December 6th, company CEO John Legere announced today. This marks the largest rollout for the carrier’s 5G plans yet.
 
T-Mobile has also started rolling out its 5G network on a smaller scale with faster (but short-range) mmWave technology in a few cities, similar to Verizon. The 600 MHz half of the network looks to help make up for the shortcomings of mmWave networks, like the short range and difficulties of getting signals into buildings.
 
According to Legere, the network will eventually cover 200 million customers and hit speeds of up to 450 Mbps by 2024, which is 10 times faster than its current LTE speeds. We’ll have to wait and see for ourselves how well those claims hold up in the real world, though, along with how the slower 600 MHz flavor of 5G compares to the higher-spectrum mmWave version.

You poor, innocent 40-year-old man.

Whatever you do, DON'T look up "5G tech" on YouTube or read the comment sections under the videos of any 5G video.

As 5G Rolls Out, Troubling New Security Flaws Emerge
 
11.12.2019 11:30 AM
 
It's not yet prime time for 5G networks, which still face logistical and technical hurdles, but they're increasingly coming online in major cities worldwide. Which is why it's especially worrying that new 5G vulnerabilities are being discovered almost by the dozen.
 
At the Association for Computing Machinery's Conference on Computer and Communications Security today researchers are presenting new findings that the 5G specification still has vulnerabilities. And with 5G increasingly becoming a reality, time is running out to catch these flaws.
 
The researchers from Purdue University and the University of Iowa are detailing 11 new design issues in 5G protocols that could expose your location, downgrade your service to old mobile data networks, run up your wireless bills, or even track when you make calls, text, or browse the web. They also found five additional 5G vulnerabilities that carried over from 3G and 4G. They identified all of those flaws with a new custom tool called 5GReasoner.
 
"We had a hunch when we started this work that there were more vulnerabilities to find," says Syed Rafiul Hussain, a mobile security researcher from Purdue who led the study. "Since many security features from 4G and 3G have been adopted to 5G, there is a high chance that vulnerabilities in previous generations are likely inherited to 5G, too. Additionally, new features in 5G may not have been undergone rigorous security evaluation yet. So we were both surprised and not so surprised by our findings."
