Will LTE Security Separate the Coke from the 4G Can?

by Juniper Employee ‎09-12-2013 05:34 AM - edited ‎10-31-2013 05:22 AM

There are many things we take for granted these days; mobile networks for instance. It’s a long time since I’ve heard a discussion about the merits of one operator over another. Many people feel operators are vanilla and the real flavour is in the content they experience. But LTE will change that in a surprising way. Operators’ attitudes to LTE Security differ in an alarming way and will influence many people’s buying decisions. Read on to discover what a new paper from Heavy Reading reveals about these attitudes and the approaches adopted by many operators.


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.        


Maybe it’s the old romantic in me but with this year’s Mobile World Congress in a new location, starting on a new date and with spring closer than the turn of the year, it feels like a time to refresh, to rejuvenate, to re-think, to look forwards with confidence.


In many ways, that commentary and thinking is a great metaphor for the march towards LTE.
