"Challenges in mobile communication regarding current and future mobile services, applications, and devices"

Hans Einsiedler, Telekom Innovation Laboratories

Abstract

Most of the broadband access at home, at work, and on the move will be mobile and wireless. IPTV-sets and some other fixed networked equipment will be still connected through wired lines. However, most of the end-devices will be connected at least by the last hop through wireless or mobile access networks. Typical examples for these end-systems are smart phones, communication watches, sensors, augmented reality glasses, wearable, etc. The air interface is a spare resource. New system concepts, mechanisms, and protocols have to be implemented to optimise the wireless and mobile access. Offloading, service execution points close to the end-systems, movement prediction of end-systems, optimised operating systems in end-systems (e.g. smart phones), optimised application and service developments, context awareness, etc. are system concepts which will increase the network efficiency and offer optimised network access for excellent user experiences. In parallel, these concepts have to give an answer and have to support the trend to move most of the applications and services into the cloud. Like in real-time communication, the access of a huge number of cloud applications and services from mobile and wireless devices has high demands on the underlying network. This leads to a rethinking and redesign of current network paradigms.

"Challenges and Opportunities of Mobile Device Security"

Morris Chang, Iowa State University

Abstract

The trend of focusing more on mobile device security is driven by the increasing popularity of using such devices to access the Internet. With more offices implementing Bring Your Own Device policies, new information security concerns are being introduced. This talk addresses security issues of user authentication and malware detection on mobile devices. It reviews the state-of-the-art approaches and discusses the challenges and opportunities in the research.
