Bristol University pledge a breakthrough in ensuring 5G networks security

New research carried out by the High-Performance Networks Research Group at the University of Bristol’s Smart Internet Lab, has validated a groundbreaking solution for the concerns on security susceptibility of 5G networks which are anticipated to transform the telecommunication industry. The findings were presented on 7 March at a highly prestigious post-deadline paper in the Optical Fibre Communication Conference, San Diego, USA. The proposed solution will enable 5G network operators to offer ultimately secure 5G services while assuring ultra-low-latency and high-bandwidth communications. This is due to the unique blend of quantum and infrastructure virtualization technologies.
