Subsentio Launches New LTE Option for Compliance With Electronic Surveillance Laws

Subsentio Launches New LTE Option for Compliance With Electronic Surveillance 
Laws 
Probe Approach Gives LTE Service Providers and Switch Manufacturers
Low Cost, Easy-to-Deploy Alternative to Current Surveillance Systems 
DENVER, CO -- (Marketwired) -- 05/14/13 --  Subsentio, the leading
provider of trusted third party solutions for lawful intercept, today
announced Safe Harbor Probe(TM) for LTE, providing mobile operators
and switch manufacturers with a new, cost-effective solution ensuring
compliance with electronic surveillance laws at a fraction of the
cost of investing in current interception gateways and mediation
systems.  
Subsentio has integrated and tested the Safe Harbor Probe(TM) with
Alcatel-Lucent and Ericsson based LTE core networks. A single Safe
Harbor Probe(TM) monitors the traffic on certain LTE interfaces and
does not require additional investment in electronic surveillance
hardware and software -- producing a significant savings. Mobile
operators offering LTE can use one Safe Harbor Probe(TM) to meet all
requirements for lawful intercept and benefit from a state-of-the-art
option that ensures rapid deployment, low cost, "five 9s"
reliability, and full indemnity against legal risks. 
"Subsentio's successful integration of the Safe Harbor Probe(TM) with
Alcatel-Lucent and Ericsson core networks represents an important
'first' in LTE -- a new era where mobile operators and switch
manufacturers can integrate existing equipment with the
market-leading lawful intercept device for far less than the cost of
using a network hardware solution," said Steve Bock, Subsentio
President. "Subsentio is moving aggressively to test the Safe Harbor
Probe(TM) with other network equipment manufacturers, and will
announce further LTE integrations later in 2013." 
"Until now, to ensure compliance with the Communications Assistance
for Law Enforcement Act (CALEA), LTE providers needed to purchase and
operate a relatively expensive interception gateway or mediation
system," said Dr. Glen Myers, Subsentio Chief Technology Officer.
"Now mobile operators have a better choice for LTE -- the Safe Harbor
Probe(TM), fully tested by the FBI CALEA Implementation Unit, and
readily available to integrate with network hardware." 
About the Safe Harbor Probe
 Rather than attempting to extract
intercept information from the various pieces of networking equipment
within the LTE core, the Safe Harbor Probe(TM) gets its information
by watching the network interfaces between the pieces of networking
equipment. The Probe can be provisioned to intercept based on
subscriber phone number, subscriber identity, user-equipment
identity, and IPv4 and IPv6 addresses. 
Features include optional buffering, a built-in virtual private
network endpoint, and the delivery of "pen register" intercepts in
addition to full content (e.g., Title III) intercepts. As LTE
networks add Voice over LTE (VoLTE), the Probe will be able to handle
that, as well. The Probe is backed by Subsentio's Safe Harbor
Certification program, which provides strict adherence to industry
standards, delivers expert installation, testing and maintenance, and
ensures secure transmission of court order-specified information
only, guaranteeing performance that fully indemnifies the carrier.
