Libuda : Das eröffnet m.E. enorme Chancen
Pai said, ?There?s no American-based supplier of equipment. But people are innovating to virtualize the radio access network and other parts of the 5G network. I?ve met with Rakuten. I just met recently with Altiostar, a Boston-based company.?
He indicated that 5G with its multitude of small cells and edge compute locations ?increases the attack surface,? in terms of security. Pai is interested in companies such as Rakuten and Altiostar because they are working on next-generation wireless networks that replace proprietary hardware with software stacks that can run on generic hardware. He said these virtualized networks will help to bypass some security issues and also decrease the cost of building 5G networks.
?Software is something America has really led on,? said Pai. Although Rakuten is a Japanese company, it?s using vendors from all around the world, including Altiostar, which is a U.S.-based vendor.
