With the exponential growth of the Internet of things (IoT), the world is becoming increasingly interconnected, with the prospect that most devices from domestic electronics to self-driving cars will be wirelessly connected to the network in the near future. Although massive device connectivity is great for the technological progress towards more intelligent and automated devices, it raises a number of questions and concerns towards the security aspect of the RF links, as devices become more susceptible to signal interception, eavesdropping, spoofing, unauthorized commanding and other security threats. This problem ranges from the user equipment (UE), base stations in small cells and the large core radio access network (RAN) itself.

5G technologies are being rapidly deployed to deliver increased peak data speeds, ultra-low latency, enhanced reliability, enormous network capacity and increased availability. However, this requires a substantial expansion/upgrade to existing network infrastructure. For example, 5G networks must be densified to get the signal closer to users, which means more cell sites in more locations.
