GuardSTACK’s Richie Obermayer: 5G Networks Could Accelerate Government Digital Transformation Efforts

Richie Obermayer, vice president of technical sales at GuardSTACK Technologies, said government agencies looking to accelerate digital transformation efforts should consider adopting 5G technology.

In an article published on Carahsoft.com, Obermayer wrote that 5G networks provide lower latency and faster speeds and facilitate the deployment of internet of things-based sensors used for gathering and analyzing large data volumes in real time.

“5G networks also provide secure and resilient communication channels for defense and intelligence agencies and enable remote operation of unmanned systems, such as drones and robots, for surveillance, reconnaissance and other missions,” Obermayer noted.

“In addition, 5G technology can improve access to health care services by facilitating telemedicine, remote patient monitoring and the transmission of large medical datasets,” he added.

Obermayer stated that 5G networks could provide agencies the infrastructure needed to back artificial intelligence, virtual reality, augmented reality and other emerging technologies as well as improved encryption algorithms and other enhanced security features to safeguard sensitive data.

In this article, the GuardSTACK executive talked about Blackned’s TacticalCORE and how the platform enables authentication in contested environments by offering a multidomain security layer.

“TacticalCORE provides a seamless integration capability to create one common information and communication space among multiple backhaul and fronthaul radio technologies,” he added.

Obermayer also cited how 5G networks could support emergency communications during wildfires and other natural disasters.
