Over the past year, many people have considered starting a new life away from the city, looking for a better lifestyle with more spacious homes, less noise, fresh air and surrounded by nature. The pandemic has shown that telecommuting is possible and that this new model can bring multiple benefits to both businesses and employees.

The bad news is that currently a significant part of rural Spain does not even have access to a 4G network.

New European Regulations on 5G Network Security

Possible Strategies and Measures

On the 20th of January 2021, Blue Telecom Consulting (in the following referred to as BlueTC) returned with its live webinar series for mobile operators, telecommunications networks equipment providers, industry analysts and regulators.

This time, our focus was on the new EU 5G Security Toolbox [i], which highlights the need and importance of network security and includes the guidelines which strengthen the role of the national authorities in ensuring operators take security more seriously and implement the toolbox.

The crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic is resulting in a greater perception of the value of telecommunications, both by organisations and consumers. This is due to two fundamental reasons. On the one hand, users are discovering new technologies that they until very recently did not pay much attention to, even though operators have been investing in them for over a decade. On the other hand, they realise the resilience that telecommunication networks are showing in a situation of intensive demand, thanks to which they can continue to maintain their economic or professional activity.

Launching Voice over LTE (VoLTE) and Voice over WiFi (VoWiFi) has for some time been seems to be yet “another” large project operators are undertaking with more or less success and driven both by the need for operational efficiencies and customer demands.

The question is whether the colossal time and efforts that are being spent by operators to make the efficient IP-only LTE (or 4G) networks backward compatible will ever payoff? The main drivers seem to be efficiencies in spectrum and the promise of being able to provide convergent services based on IP. Moving voice calls to data networks at least in theory means a simpler network to manage and thus lower operational costs. Other industries such as digital and media have been successfully delivering these types of services for years, eating into the two cash-cows on which telecoms has been built, namely voice and messaging, only at a fraction of the investment.

BlueTC has just passed its first 10-year mark in business. It has been an intense decade in which the telecommunications sector has evolved in a vertiginous way and during which our company has remained faithful to its mission: Generate value for its customers within new technology areas and via the development of a specialised offering. In parallel, we have created an operational structure that enables us to deliver services globally.

Why Test Automation is a Strategic Enabler for 4G Services
