When your security solution needs deep packet inspection (DPI) as a key enabling feature, highly reliable and accurate real-time identification of network traffic and applications is an important requirement. Whether it is for application control, malware filtering or advanced threat protection, DPI is a crucial technology to implement security solutions.
The Internet of Things (IoT) will provide a wealth of information that will enable us to collect, understand and process data in real-time. This new form of M2M interaction will be partially enabled through SDN/NFV. Networks in Telecoms and other enterprises will now become connected to legacy hardware through IoT ready Telematics platforms. Securing this new technology is imperative in maintaining and protecting the network. In this webinar we will discuss how to make the network ready for IoT and explore the relation between IoT and SDN/NFV:
• Introduction to IoT
The Internet of Things (IoT) is well on the way and carriers can see a major revenue opportunity. Indeed, IoT is the main driver behind many of the requirements for upcoming 5G specifications. But, IoT is not just another service offering; it is a paradigm shift requiring a much more open carrier network than ever before. This raises network performance management and security concerns.
Infrastructure vendors developing 5G network elements are making use of software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) benefits such as operational efficiencies and service agility for operators.
2015 was an unprecedented year as far as data breaches and cyberattacks are concerned and 2016 is shaping up to be far scarier. Funds have been stolen, company and customer data has been swiped and lives have been ruined.
