re: Reef Point Lands $21M, Gets Woody sorry, had to get that out of the way.

re: Reef Point Lands $21M, Gets Woody Thank you.
We aim high.

re: Reef Point Lands $21M, Gets Woody What product does Lucent have that is comparible to the reefpoint product? I looked at their product list, but I can't seem to locate anything comparible.

You are being a little bit niave about the VCs, maybe a company could do that back in the late 90's.

re: Reef Point Lands $21M, Gets Woody Alcatel is no longer interested in the OEM deal with Reefpoint since becoming Lucatel. Lucent has a competing product. One should however praise the Reefpoint management for hiding this otherwise obvious fact from the VCs.

re: Reef Point Lands $21M, Gets Woody Ultimately the PDG (or convergence gateway) will enforce both security (and other bearer functions such as QoS, admission control, etc) and mobility/handover in an FMC application. The PDF function (or Resource Manager in LU terms) will set the policies for the PDG to enforce. I think Lucent's description (if you included mobility) is a good one, although I'm not aware of their PDG products.

re: Reef Point Lands $21M, Gets Woody Many of the major mobile infrastructure providers have a product gap in this Gǣconvergence gatewayGǥ (PDG or PDIF) segment G depending on how you define what this equipment should and shouldnGt do.

Are they GǣjustGǥ tunnel terminating gateways? What security services should they offer? How should they enforce policies, QOS? How should they be involved in mobility management?

Re: Lucent, are you referring to this: http://www.lucent.com/press/06... ?
GǣThe Lucent Resource Manager will work in combination with a distributed bearer gateway function that Lucent intends to offer as well. The two products will work in tandem to support the dynamic allocation of bandwidth, with the resource manager making the policy decisions (or laws) and the bearer gateway function, much like a traffic cop, implements and enforces those decisions by inspecting, monitoring and treating network traffic based on the policy.

re: Reef Point Lands $21M, Gets Woody One of the clearest trends in the space (as was so well highlighted by the recent LR report "Mobile Network Security: The Threat of Convergence & IMS" is the integration of security and mobility in the same convergence gateway. Legacy security gateways and SBCs trying to compete with purpose-built convergence gaetways with integrated security and mobility will have a hard time. It is a great headline though, I have to admit.

re: Reef Point Lands $21M, Gets Woody How did you ever think of that one !

re: Reef Point Lands $21M, Gets Woody What exactly is the mobililty function that is integrated in UMA gateways and SEGs? And since when does IPSec termination comprise total security?
fmc_man 12/5/2012 | 3:51:25 AM
re: Reef Point Lands $21M, Gets Woody The mobility function integrated into the SGW/PDG is handover btw various wireless networks (VCC and beyond). IPSec termination is the 3GPP standard for UMA. I don't know anyone that's calling it "total security".
