Architecting Mobile Backhaul for the Next Generation Internet

Robert Synnestvedt, Mobility Marketing Manager, Cisco
Learn about techniques that are proving to improve profitability of Mobile Backhaul networks by:

+ Reducing OPEX by as much as 70% via backhaul network efficiency gains
+ Scaling networks on-demand to meet 100 times the traffic
+ Simplifying network operations by unifying the network to backhaul any multi-vendor radio over any media
+ Reducing the complexity and cost of operating, deploying, and scaling backhaul of multivendor, multigenerational Radio Access Networks (RANs)
+ Optimizing architecture with specific network designs to meet unique customer needs in this session

Mobile Backhaul networks continue to strain under the load of exponential Mobile Internet traffic growth. To alleviate the resulting financial pressure of accompanying increases in operating expenses, as well as to scale the networks to meet the ever increasing mobile broadband demand, operators must optimize and cost effectively overhaul these networks. Upgrading the Radio Access Network (RAN) is arguably the most critical investment mobile operators are making in 2010-2012 as they migrate from 2G to 3G+ to improve OPEX, increase teledensity, and unlock additional "Mobile Internet" revenue opportunities.

  • Join us for this live webinar where we will walk through a real-world example in which FireEye Managed Defense analysts utilized the FireEye Platform’s MVX virtual machine technology and endpoint response capabilities to identify, alert, and remediate an active Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) attack.

    In this case study we will cover:

    • How the attacker executed a “smash-and-grab” attack aimed at stealing intellectual property.
    • How FireEye detected the attack as it was beginning and re-secured the network and prevented sensitive data from leaving the client’s networks.
    • Best practices for investigating and responding to similar attacks.
  • 85% of enterprises permit BYOD, but only 25-30% of them actually have policies and technology to manage these devices. What is your business doing to ensure that the content on that device stays secure, regardless of what device your employees are using? If you are considering moving to a BYOD strategy or are in the midst of doing so, join this webinar to learn how to develop and execute a BYOD plan in your company.

  • Everyday consumers assume that when making a purchase, online or in-store, their card data is handed off to a trusted source, with security in place to protect them. However protecting these transactions and the retail payment ecosystem has become increasingly complex, with recent data breaches of large retailers testament to the vulnerabilities.

    In addition, compliance with PCI DSS fails to address some of these vulnerabilities resulting in potential exploitation with disastrous consequences. To address these security gaps the scope of security needs extending from the merchant, acquirer, switch and bank or card issuers to include the manufacturers of payment terminals at the point of sale and developers of payment application software.

    Join your fellow professionals to understand how by using Point-to-Point Encryption, card data is encrypted from the earliest possible moment of its capture, and ensures that data remains in an encrypted state consistently until it arrives at the payment gateway.

    Then understand why many merchants are considering P2PE not only to secure vulnerabilities, but also because it can effectively remove some of the merchant’s own security infrastructures from the scope of compliance with regulations such as PCI DSS. Lastly understand why encryption is only as secure as the encryption keys as when cryptography is used to protect valued data, the risk is transferred from the data to the keys.
