Marketing and standardisation meetings

Posted on by Site Admin

NEMESYS partners had a meeting with representatives from Telecom Italia’s security, marketing, and standardisation departments (i.e. Turin, 4 June 2014) and with COSMOTE’s security and marketing teams (i.e. Athens, 24 June 2014), for discussions regarding the commercialisation and exploitation of the NEMESYS technical output.

The technologies being developed by NEMESYS were presented during the meetings by the corresponding partners, and demos were given for the virtualised mobile honeypot, high-interaction honeyclient, mobile network simulator, and network-based anomaly detection & visual analytics modules.

Feedback from the operators’ security teams highlighted the main innovations that NEMESYS introduces with respect to existing solutions, the additional developments that are needed to turn these research prototypes into hardened industry products, and the legal and privacy issues that should be addressed within the legal context in Italy and Greece.

The discussions with the marketing teams focused on the potential economic value of these innovations for operators as a means to save money for existing services, make existing services more attractive, and create new services and products that operators can offer to their customers.

Finally, the standardisation team of TI expressed interest in collaborating with NEMESYS to identify gaps in, and contribute to, standards and best practices particularly with respect to signalling storm mitigation practices, and direct communication for security and emergency services.
