Summary : What does it mean to implement security in a mobile carrier's network? Can't you just implement some firewalls here and IPS there and call it a day?
This presentation will discuss the unique challenges that mobile carriers face in implementing security and where obvious solutions like firewalling, filtration, and intrusion prevention fail to scale in not so obvious ways. Audience members will learn the functions of a mobile network and will leave with insight into the security challenges that operators face in delivering a mobile network as well as onboarding new platforms for that network.
