NSN to launch security unit in Berlin

13 March 2014 |


Nokia Solutions and Networks (NSN) has today revealed that it will establish a mobile broadband security centre in Berlin, Germany.

The facility will be used as a platform to exchange knowledge on mobile broadband-related issues, and is due to be fully operational in the second half of this year.

“Europe and specifically Germany are leading drivers for the highest standards of telco security and privacy protection,” said Hermann Rodler, MD of NSN in Germany. “This, in conjunction with our security expertise and significant R&D footprint in Germany, makes Berlin a natural choice for us.”

The centre will be located at NSN’s Berlin site, and as well as acting as a discussion platform, will also allow end-to-end security testing for multi-vendor mobile broadband environments.

NSN and its partners will be able to replicate threat scenarios to assess the best solutions and methods for addressing network security.

“We want to engage in dialogue with the telco security community and contribute our broad experience in protecting mobile broadband networks,” Rodler said. “We will leverage our existing expertise and our partner ecosystem in order to increase end-to-end security in mobile broadband today and drive forward 5G security concepts and standardisation.”

In November last year, Germany’s E-Plus selected NSN to implement its network security solutions.
