Research output: Book/ReportAnthologyResearchpeer-review


5G, the emerging technology in mobile communication, is expected to deliver an important and decisive impact on several of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals where universal accessibility to ICTs remains a serious concern. However, cyber security has emerged as a serious challenge, not least because of the increased accessibility and broader usage with associated vulnerability. Developing countries have additional challenges associated with both the expected faster build-up of accessibility and the lack of qualified competencies within cyber security. Discussion of these challenges is the overall theme and motivation for this book.

Technical topics discussed in the book include:

5G in rural networks
Critical infrastructures
Open RAN
Protection of privacy
Cybersecurity and machine learning
Cybersecurity and disaster monitoring
