Trust for the Smart Grid: Dr. Neuhaus Telekommunikation Secures Communication Gateways With NXP's A-Series Device ID Solution

(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) EINDHOVEN, THE NETHERLANDS and HAMBURG, GERMANY -- (Marketwire) -- 10/10/12 -- NXP Semiconductors N.V. (NASDAQ: NXPI) has been selected by Dr. Neuhaus Telekommunikation GmbH, a leading supplier in industrial and M2M communication systems, to provide high-security chips for smart grid communication gateways. Joining forces with NXP, Dr. Neuhaus is able to meet the most advanced smart grid security requirements in the industry.

NXP's A-series is specifically designed to deliver the security, performance and long operational life required in the smart grid. It enables strong authentication to the cloud and secure remote management of smart metering systems, while assuring the integrity and confidentiality of data exchanged between head-end systems and metering equipments. The security modules integrate hardware cryptographic accelerators and support a broad range of symmetric as well as asymmetric (public key) cryptographic cipher suites and protocols, enabling compliance to widely used standards such as TLS and DLMS-COSEM in a turnkey solution.

The A-series builds upon NXP's long-time expertise in security technology, as well as its leading positions in the overall identification market and key market segments including eGovernment, banking, public transport and mobile transactions. It leverages the advanced IntegralSecurity™ architecture of NXP's SmartMX™ high-security microcontrollers with more than 100 security features to protect the cryptographic keys and computations, as one of the elements of end-to-end system security. NXP has shipped more than one billion SmartMX chips to its customers including 86 out of 102 countries with ePassport projects and leading financial institutions worldwide.

''NXP's security modules has been very easily and successfully integrated into our product. We chose NXP as our security partner because of its leadership in security and device authentication and we are now very excited to provide a robust, secure and innovative communication platform for the next Smart Grid projects," said Ludger Böggering, director of product marketing at Dr. Neuhaus Telekommunikation.

"NXP is the security partner of choice for governments, organizations and companies worldwide, bringing security to all aspects of the smart life," said Sami Nassar, general manager, Authentication product line, NXP Semiconductors. "As millions of devices get connected to the cloud, cyber security has become a growing concern for many utilities, infrastructure manufacturers and automation technology suppliers. NXP has the right solutions at hand, providing advanced turnkey security solutions for embedded applications." The communication gateway secured by NXP enables flexible wide-area communication via a range of communication technologies, using power line (PLC), DSL/LAN, WLAN networks or mobile networks (GPRS). Dr. Neuhaus will first deploy its gateway solution for a smart metering project in Belgium. The technology will be showcased in the NXP booth (Hall 1, F30) as well as the Dr. Neuhaus booth (Hall 1, C08a) at the 14th annual Metering, Billing/CRM Europe event in Amsterdam, to demonstrate how authentication technology will be used to secure critical components of smart grid infrastructure.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
