5G Network & Service Strategies: Lawful Interception Priorities

5G Network & Service Strategies: Lawful Interception Priorities

Event date: Thursday 6 May 2021

Event time: 3pm BST / 10am EST

The deployment of the 5G core (5GC) network will not only have major impacts on service delivery, it will also transform how compliance functions such as Lawful Interception (LI) are supported. In order to understand the LI impacts, in early 2021, Heavy Reading launched an LI focussed survey of communication service providers (CSPs).
In this webinar, Heavy Reading and survey sponsor BAE Systems will present key data points from this research which provides valuable insight into the strategies CSPs are adopting to ensure LI coverage and performance are not compromised as they deploy cloud-based 5G core networks.

Key points to be covered include:

  • Preferred approach for purchasing a 5G-compliant Lawful Interception solution
  • Timeline for 5G LI implementation and support
  • 5G LI reference architecture preferences
  • 5G related Lawful Disclosure / Data Retention requirements

Research Director – Cloud and Security at Heavy Reading

Jim leads Heavy Reading's research on the service assurance and security impact of the virtualized cloud on the control plane and application layers, both in the fixed and mobile core and at the enterprise edge. Jim focuses on the security impacts that cloud-based technologies such as 5G introduce from a cyber-threat detection perspective, as well as billing and service assurance transformation implications. Jim joined Heavy Reading from Nortel Networks, where he tracked the VoIP and application server market landscape and was a key contributor to the development of Wireless Intelligent Network (WIN) standards. Additional technical experience was gained with Bell Canada, where he performed IN and SS7 network planning, numbering administration, technical model forecast creation and definition of regulatory-based interconnection models. Jim is based in Ottawa, Canada.
