Over the past two decades, industrial sectors and everyday users have reaped the benefits of advancements in telecom technologies. At present, the catalyst and basis for future changes is 5G. A sign of this continuing development and influence for some industries is their investment in non-public networks (NPN), also commonly referred to as campus networks.
The 4G/5G campus network helps fulfill the growing requirement among industries for higher availability, lower latency, better privacy, and network isolation. However, it can also open security gaps, wherein IT experts and operational technology (OT) personnel might find themselves lacking the knowledge to address telecom-related threats in an expanded attack surface.
