Unlocking the potential of 5G

After many years of conceptualisation, Mobile Network Operator (MNO) migration to 5G is gathering pace.

By 2025, 5G technology will have reached up to 65% of the world population and generate 45% of the world’s total mobile traffic.[1] 

5G will play a fundamental role in enabling new solutions across various use-cases, including connected car, enhanced mobile broadband, massive IoT applications, and critical communication infrastructures.

MNOs, and other mobile industry stakeholders including device manufacturers, chipset makers and service providers, are working to offer customers the best possible experience, services, security and privacy, while optimising their investments.

Recommended 5G SIM

The Trusted Connectivity Alliance has worked collaboratively to develop guidelines that promote the highest levels of security, privacy and functionality in 5G networks, and help stakeholders across the mobile industry unlock the full potential of 5G as future use-cases and possibilities unfold.

The Recommended 5G SIM defines technical features which address the many challenges, beyond network access, faced today by MNOs as they migrate to 5G networks.

This enables MNOs to provide customers with a better quality of experience and higher security, while optimising network and device resources. The Recommended 5G SIM also addresses subscriber privacy issues, offers reduced power consumption for extended battery life and supports delivery of Internet Protocol (IP) services.
