Today the signaling network is not isolated, and this allows an intruder to exploit its flaws and intercept calls and SMSs, bypass billing, steal money from mobile accounts, or affect mobile network operability. To demonstrate the extend of security problems in modern communication networks, this report shows not only the vulnerabilities that we revealed during SS7 networks security analysis, but also the exploitation of these vulnerabilities as would happen in real life.

Traditional methods of solution development are no longer suited to the high-speed telecoms world of SDN (software-defined networks), NFV (network function virtualization) and 5G.

Companies from various areas invest in IoT technology to become more competitive, attract new customers, improve business efficiency and lower operational costs. For CSPs, the main focus is on managing IoT devices and services in industry verticals, using graphical representations of data and processes to simplify understanding of the lifecycle, usage and management of a given service. However, data derived from connectivity, devices, applications and external systems need to be analyzed. This is where actionable analytics tools come into play helping organizations to unlock the value and as a result monetize IoT data.

Telecom networks must be always-on and guarantee always-on services, no matter what technology is used. The new generation service assurance solutions are necessary in order to overcome obstacles of virtualization layer and the dynamic environment.

Five areas you can optimise by moving BSS/OSS into the cloud

IT is moving into the cloud, and it’s a fact. All industries are facing the same IT transformation challenge that could be a real game changer. All players, regardless of their scale and organization maturity, could get access to the same secured solutions alongside standardized and robustly engineered processes. That on the other hand will result in offering modern solutions that are better aligned to market needs and deliver features to get a business operational at lower cost than traditional options.

Guided Customer Journeys for Personalized Telecom Services as a means of Maximizing Customer Engagement

Customer experience is at the heart of all business, and customers increasingly know exactly what they want and how much to pay for it. What’s relatively new in the telecom industry is that operators have grasped the importance of managing customer journeys to create great customer experience.

In 2015 alone, over 1.4 billion smartphones were sold worldwide. With the proliferation of smartphones all around the world, mobile bandwidth demands are increasing at an exponential rate. On top of the never ending demand for bandwidth, the fierce competition between mobile network operators (MNOs) is forcing them to constantly upgrade and improve their mobile networks.

Introducing Network-based Services - How NFV and SDN Technologies Contribute to the Faster Creation and Deployment of Services

Virtualization and NFV orchestration promise a  high level of automation and agility that will allow service providers  to shorten service provisioning cycles and experiment with new network  offers.
