Bosco Novak, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity GmbH, explained at the 6th Potsdam Conference for National CyberSecurity of the Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI) the application areas for which the recently adopted 5G standard will be particularly interesting. Users who rely on "enhanced broadband" due to high communication volumes will benefit in particular, for example for virtual reality applications and networking development teams. In addition, the new "mobile communications in the microwave range" will enable the "Massive Internet of Things," which means it will soon be possible to connect one million devices per square kilometer. Finally, applications that rely on short response times of one to two milliseconds in particular benefit from low latency.
In the second part of his keynote, Novak addressed the intensive digitization process within Rohde & Schwarz. As a "classic German medium-sized company," considerable investments are required both financially and in terms of personnel to be able to shape the value chain accordingly, says Novak.
