This white paper focuses on the major security of IoT devices and the requirements set forth are designed to improve security of IoT devices. Widespread adoption of these strategic principles and the associated suggested practices would dramatically improve the security of IoT devices.
The whitepaper gives a description on IoT use case analysis, core architectural requirement and EPC optimized architecture to support NB-IoT or enhanced MTC devices. This whitepaper also investigates how to leverage NFV and other emerging network technologies to realize optimization of cellular IoT core network architecture, deployment strategy and service capability exposure architecture.
The underlying mobile network is an existing large-scale platform for bearing the IoT services. Getting the underlying transport network capability to be exposed to the IoT applications in a simple way while offering additional and commonly needed functions and guaranteeing a robust protection of the network from inefficient usage will provide differentiated competition for mobile operators' IoT platforms versus other over-the-top offerings.
As a massive-antenna technology in the 4G era, Massive MIMO has been widely regarded as an ever energizing technology since 4G rollout. It takes the unrivaled advantages of LTE TDD spectrum to achieve revolutionary breakthroughs in network performance for operators. This revolutionary technology is a great prelude to the future-oriented network.
This white paper introduces the recent progress of global 5G spectrum and the suitability of the 5G frequency bands under consideration for sub-6 GHz spectrum range. In addition it highlights the development of legacy 2G/3G/4G sub-6GHz bands and the possible migration to 5G in order provide ambitious services and adequate coverage, especially assisting the GTI groups for their product design and initiatives identified. And special attention is given to trials and commercial roll-outs of 5G technology in several countries.
