5G Cybersecurity Is A Growing Need And Encryption A Must For Every User

The evolution of communication technologies has for the past 2 decades upgraded from 1G which enabled users to make Voice calls, 2G that introduced Short Messages (SMS) and Multi Media Messages (MMS) in the 90s, to 3G as an Internet connection enabler paving way for 4G as the current fast connection technology making Video sharing and streaming possible. 

Now, 5G is the latest communications technology that is currently in its late design and deployment stages. With 5G, low latency is expected to be a main factor with applications running in Virtual Reality (AR), Augmented Reality (AR), and the Internet of Things (IoT) as much anticipated use cases. 

However, with the emergence of 5G comes a rising need to secure user traffic and reduce on the rate of cyber attacks across the world. In the recent years, cyber attacks have been launched using organization backdoors, low software applications security, and user negligence on following set IT security standards. 

5G Cybersecurity as a key need for every organization can rely on stable models the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) architecture where fault isolation is possible and Information security is divided into 5 domains to protect user data and equipment. 

  • Network access security: ensures that mobile users have secure access to network services and mobile network is secured against attacks via the (radio) access link. 
  • Network domain security: ensures that mobile backhaul nodes to securely exchange signaling data and user data at the mobile backhaul networks and protects against attacks on wireline link. 
  • User domain security: secures access to mobile stations. 

4) Application domain security: allows applications on user and network side to securely exchange data. 

 5) Visibility and configurability of security: allows user to get information about enabled security features and provision of services. 

Furthermore, reliance on the 3GPP Architecture not only protects users and software applications from cyber-attacks, but also improves the legacy security model deployed on 3G and 4G communication networks. 

Currently, Huawei is ranked as the best 5G enabler and the company has registered more than 5G commercial contracts to deploy the new generation network communication technology. As such, 5G cybersecurity is a top priority for the company having passed the European Union Agency for Cybersecurity (ENISA) certification in Europe. 

The ENISA Certification is a framework under the Regulation (EU) 2019/881 to establish and maintain the trust and security on cybersecurity products, services and processes. With the Certification, the United Kingdom security chief believes that the Huawei risk can be managed since the company has more than 30 years of experience and has huge efforts in the development of 5G cybersecurity.

Huawei To Invest $150 Million In Digital Talent Development

Huawei plans to invest US$150 million in digital talent development over the next five years. This program is expected to benefit another 3 million youth.

"Today we are announcing Huawei's Seeds for the Future Program 2.0. As part of our commitment to continuously developing talent, we will invest US$150 million in this program over the next five years and help college students and young people improve their digital skills. This program is expected to benefit another 3 million people," said Huawei's Chairman Liang Hua.

In 2008, Huawei began to expand its talent development programs, through scholarships, technology competitions, and digital skills training, and has invested more than US$150 million in these programs. Huawei has since benefited more than 1.54 million people from over 150 countries.

Seeds for the Future is a program that aims to help cultivate young talent around the world, providing them with training from global ICT experts on the latest technology to help them develop the skills and mindsets needed to be competitive in the workplaces of the future.

Huawei introduced this program to Africa in 2014. Over the past years, the program has benefited nearly 2,000 students in more than 25 African countries. The program and Huawei’s efforts in ICT talent development has been recognized by many African governments.

Minister of Communications and Digital Technologies of South Africa Stella Ndabeni-Abrahams has commended the partnership between her Ministry and Huawei for supporting South Africa’s National Digital and Future Skills Strategy.

“Through the Seeds for the Future Program, students will get access to Huawei’s latest technology and that will give them a valuable insight into how ICT works to change our lives. This is the 5G, cloud and AI era, and we want our students to get the best skills so they can innovate and create local solutions that will serve our local needs,” Stella said.

Yang Chen, Vice President of Huawei Southern Africa Region, said Huawei is committed to Africa’s human resource development.

“Africa has the youngest population in the world. These youth are the continent’s greatest resource which will power the economy in the future. Huawei partners with African governments, education institutes and industry to equip the future leaders with the latest knowledge at the very highest global levels and provide them opportunities to apply it to achieve a better future for the continent.”

From Bits To Watts: Huawei Underlines African Power Credentials

There is no doubt that Africa faces a massive energy challenge. At the same time, the continent is richly endowed with renewable energy sources. According to international energy agency, around 580 million people in sub-Saharan Africa lacked access to electricity in 2019, three-quarters of the global total, while renewable energy is expected to contribute 22% of Africa’s total energy consumption by 2030. 

There is a strong and urgent need to accelerate the growth of renewable energy across the region to ensure sufficient, affordable, reliable energy supply for individuals, businesses, and communities. Huawei is at the forefront of addressing those issues, as it demonstrated at a virtual digital power event today. 

“There is still a massive gap to be bridged. However, the traditional energy infrastructure operation mode cannot meet the new challenges brought by the latest development in the digital world. Digital and intelligent technologies can be of great help to ensure we provide sufficient electricity to every African household and business,” said Huang Su, Director of Huawei Southern Africa Digital Power Business. 

The cost of PV power generation has fallen sharply over the past decade. In most countries, traditional energy grids costs a lot more than PV electricity.  This offers Africa an opportunity to harness its abundant potential of increasingly cost-competitive renewable energy to meet the growing demand for electricity and pursue a climate-friendly, needs-oriented power strategy.

As Huang points out, renewable energy is much cheaper than fossil-fuel-based options, with a kilowatt-hour of solar power costing less than a Rand in South Africa. It’s clear then, that solar power should -- and likely will -- play a large role in the world’s future power mix. 

In order to achieve this, Huawei is committed to introducing digital power solutions driven by digital technologies.

"The essence of digital power is integrating cloud, AI, and other digital technologies with power generation, storage and consumption. We are ready and willing to provide our full support for building a green Africa and bridging the energy gap,” Huang says. 

Huawei’s smart PV solution has been deployed in more than 60 countries and regions and has generated more than 300 billion kWH of green electricity, powering millions of residents and hundreds of industries globally. Huang said, Huawei will continue to innovate and enable renewable energy to empower each individual, home, and organisation. 

“Huawei is already a household name in the ICT world,” Huang says. “All ICT requires power supply and Huawei has always provided that to one degree or another. Our efforts in the solar PV space are simply an extension of that. As we are good at Bits, so we basically try to add Bit streams on the top of Watt streams, and use bits to manage the Watt,” Huang says. 

“Over time, Huawei will deploy more and more scalable power stations. These power stations can be managed and maintained online, further reducing their carbon footprint,” he adds. “We are uniquely positioned to bring electricity, power supply, and data management together. The journey from bits to watts is accelerating and we plan on leading it.”

Huawei Demonstrates Innovative Capabilities At MWC And Launched A Suite Of 5G Solutions

Huawei underlined its innovative capabilities, walking away with several awards at this year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC), which took place in Barcelona and online from 28 June to 01 July.                                                                                   

As the world’s largest exhibition for the mobile industry, Mobile World Congress plays a pivotal role in setting the tone for space over the course of the coming year. Huawei has played a central role at MWC for some time now and the 2021 edition was no exception. 

Speaking at the event, Ryan Ding, President of Carrier Business Group, Huawei pointed out that 5G -- an area where Huawei is a leading player -- is already demonstrating its potential in several markets, but added there was still room for more innovation. 

Ding pointed to the progress of 5G technology in China and South Korea, where Huawei research showed rollout is already 20-times faster than 4G, with subscribers hitting 390 million in its home market. 

Between 2021 and 2025, Ding added the combination of ICT and 5G digital infrastructure will drive economic growth of €1.9 trillion in China and €130 billion in South Korea, numbers proving operators were becoming drivers for national economies. 

“We still need continued 5G innovation, we still need to grow our system, we need to coordinate telecoms standards and integrate 5G into our core production process,” he says. “5G innovation is an ongoing process and this is just the beginning.” 

The event also saw Huawei launch a series of 5G products and solutions to promote multi-antenna technology to all bands and all scenarios to build leading 5G networks. 

Supercharged by industry leading innovation, these newly released products and solutions are all the only one of its kind. They include Industry's Lightest 64T64R Massive MIMO, BladeAAU Pro, Industry's only 64T A+P Solution, BladeRRU Pro, Industry's Only RF Unit that supports three low and three medium bands, and Industry's Only Commercial FDD Massive MIMO. 

Yang Chaobin, President of Huawei Wireless Product Line, said: "We aim to support operators to efficiently deploy 5G networks and provide first-rate experience. Huawei will work with global partners to innovate and share 5G benefits with all." 

Huawei’s 5G prowess saw it win several awards, including the 'Best Mobile Network Infrastructure' award at the Global Mobile (GLOMO) Awards for its BladeAAU product. Huawei launched the industry's first BladeAAU product in 2019 to help operators overcome deployment challenges relating to the insufficient antenna space. 

The Judges had this to say about the Huawei for BladeAAU series: “This stands out as a vital enabler for operators deploying 5G, ensuring support for commercially important spectrum in the years to come.”
