SPEAR-PHISHING ATTACKS WHY THEY ARE SUCCESSFUL AND HOW TO STOP THEM

December 29, 2016

Spear phishing is on the rise because it works. Traditional security defenses simply do not detect and stop it. From a cyber criminal’s point of view, spear phishing is the perfect vehicle for a broad array of damaging exploits. For example, threat actors are increasingly targeting executives and other high-level employees, tricking them into activating malware that gives criminals access into their companies’ environments.

Assuring the Promise of a Secure 5G Future

whitePaper | November 1, 2019

The benefits 5G will bring to consumers, network equipment manufacturers (NEMs), and service providers (SPs) are both numerous and game-changing. 5G will radically improve the mobile broadband services that consumers enjoy and enable connectivity to billions of global devices to create a boom in the Internet of Things (IoT). 5G will provide robust support for new use cases we may scarcely imagine today. But there’s another critical challenge that deserves attention: Security—particularly the need for validation and testing. On a basic level, the adoption of 5G will depend on whether or not 5G services are demonstrably safe.

Service performance measurement methods over 5G experimental networks

whitePaper | May 1, 2021

This white paper (available in both short and long versions) analyses the 5G-PPP projects’ use cases of various verticals for their performance KPIs and their mapping to the 5G network KPIs. The scope is to identify (based on architectural elements analysis, information flow, etc.) the potential impact on the service performance and the perceived user quality. The considered use cases belong to the following domains: Smart Cities & Utilities, Transportation, Automotive, Media & Entertainment, Agriculture & Agri-food, Smart (Air)ports, Energy and E-health & Wellness. The goal was to understand the relationship between the 5G network performance indicators and the vertical services.

Access-to-Core Optical Transport Network Switching

whitePaper | June 21, 2021

Layer 1 transport services are a highly profitable offering that service providers can sell to enterprises. These services, which include ethernet, fiber channel, and legacy SDH/SONET, provide connection to data centers and other corporate locations. However, it has always been a challenge to provision these services fast enough, due to the rigid, low-cost nature of optical access networks. This paper highlights how an innovative and economical access-to-core Optical Transport Networking (OTN) switching solution can enable service providers to provision these lucrative services rapidly, speeding up time to revenues, maintaining customer satisfaction, while also guaranteeing service availability.

Impact of 5G on 4G Services for Operators and NEMs

whitePaper | March 1, 2020

5G is gathering momentum at a pace not experienced with legacy technologies such as 3G and 4G. In fact, a growing number of operators that have existing LTE networks have now launched 5G, according to the GSA. We’ve already seen a great deal of investment in 5G, and we’ll see a growing number of operators targeting the enterprise market to support applications in agriculture, manufacturing, automotive and healthcare. It is anticipated that an acceleration of 5G roll-out will take place throughout 2020, particularly with non-standalone (NSA) designed to work with existing 4G networks.
