5G Wireless Security

The last decade of the social-mobile Internet is giving way to the next decade of the Internet of Things (IoT) and the core technologies that will enable it such as 5G wireless. We seek to ensure that as these new technologies are developed, standardized, and deployed that they have the needed security features to ensure that the next generation of the Internet and the ecosystems built on top of it are underpinned with systematic security and privacy safeguards.

CCI is building the country’s only 5G wireless testbed focused on security. With a core network designed and operated by expert technicians, distributed base stations leveraging unique testing environments across the Commonwealth, and access to the best researchers and students in Virginia, the testbed will be a one-of-a-kind asset for innovation, testing, and training.
