Techniques are described for using the concept of 802.11r Fast Base Station Subsystem (BSS) Transition in the security context generated between User Equipment (UE) and a 5G Radio Access Network (RAN) (UE – Next-Generation NodeB (gNB) security context) to provide “Fast Transition” into the wireless network. This eliminates the need for a separate handshaking mechanism, allowing security negotiation and requests for wireless resources to occur in parallel, thereby enabling faster, secure communication through the wireless link.
