Download the presentations for this conference.
Backaul of 3G and LTE macrocell traffic is one of the largest problems--and opportunities--in telecom. The world has gone mobile and is “going video”, and the future presents major obstacles. Demands of traffic growth, video applications, and mobility for workplace applications must be fit into limited, finite spectrum—the only viable solution is to multiply the use of that spectrum by introducing outdoor and in-building small cells, for 3G and LTE.
Some of the same elements that have given rise to the M2M industry boom have also enabled a variety of new security threats. In this webinar we will discuss the latest security solutions in M2M. Case studies and trends for the future in M2M Security will be presented as well.
