As communications service providers (CSPs) begin deploying 5G, they will leverage Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) where software is disaggregated from hardware. However, NFV implies a shift in end-to-end validation responsibility from equipment vendors to system integrators or CSPs themselves. CSPs will therefore incur new risks for the end-to-end solution as elements are acquired and integrated independently. The extensive use of IT infrastructure and the 5G network architecture also makes the networks more vulnerable from a security standpoint.
