In our last post, we discussed how recent advances in AI and ML can be used for good and bad. In this installment, I’ll explain why it’s so easy for security vulnerabilities to make their […]
In the third of a five-part blog series helping network service providers to avoid costly procurement mistakes, we consider the relative benefits of software and hardware-based solutions for smart home management. Can you keep costs down without creating integration nightmares or vendor lock-in?
If early January is any guide, 2020 should be the year when network service providers finally get serious about router security. The year had barely begun when researchers revealed a new critical vulnerability they dubbed “Cable Haunt” that affects hundreds of millions of cable modems.
A lot has changed since I first started applying machine learning (ML) in the 1990s. Back then, using something like a neural network meant implementing everything, including the learning algorithm, from scratch. Assuming your code […]
Selecting a smart home management system is a high-stakes process for ISPs, so it is important to ask the right procurement questions. IoT Fingerprinting should be at the heart of any management system, but the quality of technology has serious implications for security, user experience, and operational costs.
In my previous post, we covered why protecting the privacy (and confidentiality) of data is so paramount and how ML-based systems amplify privacy concerns due to the sheer amount of data and the processing power […]
Disney+ and Netflix have both been criticized for failing to support some Smart TVs. If these big budget players can’t achieve full device reach, what hope is there for smaller operators? How can OTT operators get device strategy right?
With an increasingly crowded field of vendors for smart home management systems, how can ISPs be sure they choose wisely? In my list of key areas to investigate during procurement, security is naturally at the top. Just how smart is the smart home protection offered?
