5G Enabled Secure Wireless Networks: a new book of Professor Nalin Jayakody in Springer

Springer Publishing Company, one of the world’s largest scientific publishing houses, has published a book authored by the professor of the Research Center for Automation and Information Technologies of Tomsk Polytechnic University. At TPU, he created an international group of specialists involved in conducting research in 5G mobile communications. The new book written in English covers the issues of 5G network security.

The technology of 5G mobile communications differs from the previous solutions in that it enables an enormous data transfer rate. It is several dozen times higher than those enabled by existing wireless networks. What is more, 5G reduces a signal delay. This is of special importance, amongst others, for unmanned vehicle technologies where signal delay is deemed critical. Now scientific groups and large companies are working on 5G technology to increase the rate and quality of data transfer.

Dr. Jayakody’s research group address these issues at Tomsk Polytechnic University. The researchers have already developed an algorithm that enables, together with the transfer of radio signal, a device-to-device transfer of energy bypassing an intermediary – a base station. In other words, during a conversation, electromagnetic waves transmit energy from one device to another, and this energy can be enough to charge a mobile phone.

Professor Jayakody says:

‘The recent book covers various issues of 5G networks security. 

We collected the knowledge of researchers and developers to present the latest achievements in this field. Chapters in the book are concerned with data protection, security at the physical level, and various factors affecting the performance of 5G networks. We also present some solutions that can help researchers and startups developing 5G.

This book may be of particular interest for those who conduct research on 5G as well as young scientists starting their journey in science.’
