Even before its arrival in the market, 5G has been a subject of hot debates for security and environmental effects. The scientists and the companies related to the development of 5G have done various interviews and have given out many statements that ensure people that once it is available in the market it won’t have any threats from webhacker. A lot of efforts have been done to make 5G more secure than its predecessors.
Who Is A Webhacker?
People who deliberately cause problems to people’s privacy and try to steal their information are generally called webhacker. These people are experts in computers and can easily break into any PC while sitting in any part of the world if the security isn’t right. These notorious cybercriminals have caused millions of dollars worth of losses and have also caused public distress. A webhacker can easily crash the network servers which can cause troubles for users as well as the companies.
How 5G Plans To Tackle Webhacker?
Companies behind 5G have taken a lot of innovative steps to make sure that webhacker can be eliminated for better security. The following are some of the most innovative steps that are aimed towards making 5G secure.
End To End Encryption
5G is supposed to have an end to end encryption for a more secure experience of the users. End to end encryptions has been very useful in avoiding data leaks as it is already being used by some of the best messaging apps. Under this technology, the data will be encrypted from both ends i.e. when you call someone over the 5g network, the exchange of data between you and the person you have called will be having active encryption which will not allow anyone to get access to your details.
Firewalls For Webhacker
These are one of the most popular and commonly used security features in the computer world. These can be determined as a virtual wall, that halts malicious activities and break-in attempts so that no one can access your servers or your device without authorizations. Advanced firewalls that are ready to tackle any 21st-century threats are supposed to be installed on 5G servers which boosts its security significantly.
How Will 5G Fair Against 4G?
Well, to begin with, 5G destroys 4G in every aspect except for range. Have a look at the following points to get a better understanding of the betterments that 5G will bring to you-
4G boasted of great speeds that can go up to 300 Mbps to 1 Gbps with an average speed that the user gets being 15-50 Mbps. 5G beats it with a promise of speeds more than 1Gbps with an average download speed of more than 50 Mbps constantly.
Latency is the time taken by the network to upload the information or the feedback given by you to the servers to initiate a set of activities. 4G was quite good at it as it provided an average latency of 40ms. 5G triumphs again in this segment as it is expected to give latency of 1ms or even lower.
While 4g offered large coverage areas due to lower bandwidth, 5G requires a lot of signal devices in short ranges due to higher bandwidth.5g has a higher bandwidth for better performance but that hampers its range.
