The past few years we have published a Global Internet Phenomena Spotlight on Encryption. This data has helped to inform our customers about how a significant number of major Internet services and applications have begun to encrypt their traffic to ensure their users’ content remains private.
About a month ago, we released a Global Internet Phenomena Spotlight looking at the topic of OTT Voice Bypass Fraud, and today I am back with another fraud focused report, which this time is examining zero-rating fraud.
As the use of Voice over IP (VoIP) grows due to its wide adoption as part of Over-the-Top (OTT) applications, its integration with the many decades old SS7 interconnect agreements are a growing cause of concern for end subscribers, regulators and obviously communication service providers.
IoT was not new news at Mobile World Congress 2017. But the problems that it presents for telecoms was THE news at this year’s MWC. The challenge is that high performing and safe IoT needs a response from telecoms, but there is no clear, single business consensus for why operators should build infrastructure to support IoT—and, until that consensus...
I mentioned IoT in my MWC 2017 blog, and I wanted to follow that up with a quick peek at some analytics on some of the higher profile consumer IoT devices - both of which have multiple instances on my home network ;-).
I mentioned in my Blog last week that Zero Rating would be a hot topic for operators, especially mobile operators. I thought it would be useful to take a look at what has happened in the past few weeks on this topic.
Last week a couple of Sandvine Engineers attended the very first ETSI NFV Plugtests event in Madrid, Spain. ETSI sponsored the event, and its goal was to bring different vendors together that each implements a portion of the ETSI NFV architecture, with Sandvine being the only standalone network policy control vendor to participate.
Just a few thoughts on some of the trends that you are likely to see discussed and highlighted at Mobile World Congress a few weeks from now.
We’ve talked a lot on this blog about Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), which is a carrier-led effort to move away from proprietary hardware, motivated by the desire to dramatically increase agility, enable faster service launches, and reduce the cost of deployment.
