Interesting links, week 2, 2024
Interesting telco/tech news for this week:
- osmo-epdg: an effort to build an ePDG to interop with Strongswan (with a EAP plugin, I assume). VoWifi is a super nice way to learn about Voice and IMS without having a proper RAN. Some custom sim card, and a DNS interception, and one can start toying with telco concepts on COTS phones.
- ONT y routers homologados para Movistar: [ES] In Spanish, a blog entry covering the evolution of the ONT (optical termination) in the Spanish incumbent.
- linkedin post on vmware: a summary of the business unit of VMWare post the broadcom acquisition.
- IQ download link on Twitter: A RF IQ record of a weird signal on the 1.9Ghz band from the cellular-enabled Starlink units. Probably not even cellular from the first comments.
- twitter post from news outlet: [FR] french scoop newspaper claiming a french tier one has invested in a eSIM startup.
- Digging into the Orange España Hack: an interesting analysis of the outage of AS12479 - especially the timeline where the attacker “tried” things for a bit.
Found a couple of nice links this week on the Internet:
