The Mobile Data: Billing, Pricing and Security Hammer-Head Program:
As telcos continue the transition to new, more complex, data network architectures, the financial stakes keep getting higher. This is especially true as data services account for a more significant part of the telco’s revenue. Without the latest industry standard revenue assurance controls, telcos expose themselves to huge vulnerabilities in terms of revenue loss, fraud and theft of service.

The Mobile Data: Billing, Pricing and Security Hammer-Head Program teaches telecoms professionals the methods and approaches utilized by successful teams to protect constantly evolving data environments. It helps professionals in the Mobile Data environment understand each component of the revenue stream and methods to protect against the major risks in this domain.

It is geared to help professionals involved in the deployment of:

  • 3G/4G Technologies
  • GPRS, UMTS and WCDMA network architectures
  • HSPA, HSDPA, HSUPA, LTE and EDGE radio side infrastructure
