RSA Conference held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco

RSA 2013 Highlights – Is Big Data The Key To Security?

As I review the week long RSA 2013 conference results, a couple of things stand out for me. First, it was another ‘record attendance’ number with over 24,000 attendees and the event featured over 360 companies from the cyber security industry. Given the growing sophistication of highly visible attacks not only on business and government websites, but now on media such as Twitter and on mobile devices, is it any wonder that the emphasis on security continues to grow?

MWC 2013 Days 2 and 3 – 50 Billion Connections Including Your Coffee Maker

After the flurry of mobile device announcements on Day 1 of this year’s Mobile World Congress, Days 2 and 3 provided time to see what else is going on. Various presentations and exhibits at this year’s show are continuing an increasing interest in Machine-to-Machine (M2M) applications that started last year. Automotive industry exhibits and conference sessions are drawing big crowds, as are other telematics and M2M applications featured in various sessions and in MWC and GSMA-sponsored pavilions.

MWC 2013 Day 1 – As Expected, Mobile Devices Rule the Opening Day

Everyone’s first challenge at this year’s Mobile World Congress is to learn their way around the huge new digs at Fira Gran Via. As many of you remember, it wasn’t long ago (2006) that MWC moved from Cannes to Barcelona and took up residence in the 115,000 m2 (plus 50,000 m2 outdoor space) Fira de Barcelona (Montjuic). The Gran Via has 240,00 m2 spread over 8 pavilions and everyone has to learn where the Conference Village, App Planet and other MWC staples were located. The obvious benefit Read more [...]

RSA 2013 – Security in Knowledge

Every year, there are two aspects of the RSA Conference that capture my attention. First are the new types of threats that are brought out and discussed.  These new threats tend to be taken from the headlines of last year’s top security stories. Mobile security, advanced persistent threat and DDoS attacks on banks are highlighted topics for the upcoming conference – all familiar stories from last year.  Keynote speakers will also be addressing topics such as how Big Data Redefines Security Read more [...]

The New Mobile Horizon – Mobile World Congress 2013

Every year at this time the build-up to the largest mobile technology show, Mobile World Congress (MWC), begins in earnest. Vendors start their product introduction cycles and journalists start publishing stories about what you can expect at MWC. As you might expect, much of the early publicity is about the new smartphones, tablets and other mobile technology the will be introduced.  A good example highlighting the expected announcements from Microsoft, Nokia, Samsung and HTC can be found at CNET’s Read more [...]
4G World

4G Is A Big Topic and Next Week’s 4G World Is A Big Show!

Technically, 4G refers to an ITU-R requirements specification called IMT-Advanced (International Mobile Telecommunications Advanced). The document specifies the peak speed requirements for high mobility communications (such as from cars and trains) at 100Mbits/s and 1Gbits/s for low mobility communications. However, throughout the telecommunications industry, 4G simply represents the 4th generation of mobile phone and mobile communications technology – i.e. the stuff that came after 3G!  Basically, Read more [...]

The curtain has come down on the biggest show in enterprise networking (Interop 2012) and over 13,000 IT professionals seem to have survived 4 days in Las Vegas.
