The impact of the new requirements from LTE-A (and beyond) on the backhaul network are discussed by Patrick Donegan, from Heavy Reading, in this recently released white paper, and accompanying webinar.


The white paper discusses that to successfully support new features from LTE-A and VoLTE it is essential that the backhaul networks add new features which have not often been a requirement to date. Specifically, these include


  • Frequency synchronisation
  • Phase synchronisation
  • Very low latency access to the Security Gateway from the eNodeB for the handover interface

I contend that MSPs, consumers and third party services providers such as banks take mobile network security for granted. I really don’t think any segment has fully thought through the implications for them, their brand, their ability to win new business, or the safety of personal information and all that implies. A new white paper by the Juniper team takes a look at some of the underlying causes and effect. My blog calls out some of the highlights and also gives you a link to download the white paper.   


LTE Security as Mobile Operators Transition to All-IP Networks

by Juniper Employee ‎11-07-2013 12:45 AM - edited ‎11-07-2013 01:49 AM

There really is more to life than SDN and NFV. Although you’d be hard pushed to discover what it might be if you go by the headlines in journals and key speakerships at conferences. If you live in the world of a mobile operator you might contend that LTE Networks are the next big thing. But LTE is not without its challenges and in this blog I review an eighteen minute presentation by Paul Gainham, Senior Director Service Provider Marketing EMEA. You can also follow a link to view a recording of his presentation.


The Security Vulnerabilities of LTE: Opportunity and Risks for Operators

By 2016 over half the forecast 2,500,000 LTE cell sites will be without IPSecurity says a new white paper by Heavy Reading.

Five reasons why EU should regulate mobile security

by Juniper Employee ‎09-23-2013 06:29 AM - edited ‎10-25-2013 12:21 AM

In an attempt to protect the users against dominant positions, EU has shocked the telecommunication market with some new initiatives. During the last months we've seen the European Union making steps towards the end of mobile roaming fees within the EU territory. We've seen as well EU, making steps towards defining a Net Neutrality model to avoid operators being able to block OTT traffic. Should EU now be looking at Mobile Security?


LTE Security, Brand and the Future of Mobile Network Operator's

by Juniper Employee ‎09-05-2013 07:12 AM - edited ‎10-31-2013 05:36 AM

Mobile network operators have two weapons at their disposal as they defend themselves against becoming commoditised utility providers. The first is the advent of LTE and LTE-A, the second is their brand reputation. Both can be leveraged to deliver new services to consumers and to enter new markets such as mobile health. But LTE introduces new security vulnerabilities that could compromise sensitive information and threaten an operator’s brand value. This blog draws on a new Heavy Reading paper to look at the potential risk to MNO’s and their customers.
