Just as Manufacturers Usage Description (MUD) defines security and access control for “things,” Human Usage Description (HUD) does the same for humans by associating a user and all of their devices in a database. With such a database, a 5G provider has insights into user behavior on the network in context with the user device. This allows for more accurate Quality of Experience (QoE) and network slicing at the user device level, common licensing and security across multiple devices, next generation media consumption, and revenue generation through targeted advertising.
