Developments in wireless networks enable evolving applications for general and DHS mission focused technologies. DHS operators can reference 4G and 5G enabled use cases to understand capabilities that are currently or soon to be available and use projections of 6G use cases to plan for the coming decade.
A proactive focus on emerging opportunities and threats associated with 6G development and deployment can enable DHS to prepare the homeland security enterprise to safely transition to the next generation of connectivity.
The evolution of information and communications technology (ICT) will continue to enable increasing levels of interconnected and digitized operations within the homeland security enterprise.
Technical advancements that emerged in the transition from 4G to 5G include decreased latency, improved reliability, and expanded capacity, all of which will support new connected capabilities across the homeland security enterprise.
