Europe UNDER ATTACK in simulated cyber security test

"The exercise is designed so that it avoids affect real networks, systems or services."

Or: We are going to the shooting range to try our guns, but won't use powder to avoid any danger. Surely the could have come with some more realistic scenarios than "simulated DDoS".

Re: so quantum computers dont need memory ?

Quite on the contrary, they will need lots of memory IN THE FUTURE, but since that is always "mañana", you can keep all memory as something TO BE PURCHASED... (sorry, bad pun).

Re: Crystal ball time

I am not convinced we'll be seeing the back of Tetra, Tetrapol and the likes for a long time.

Yes, they are expensive. Yes, they are old kit which struggle to cope with anything other than voice and SMS. BUT, as someone mentioned already, it's their "private" network, which should work regardless of regular UMTS-GSM congestion or jamming.

I know current (HSDPA, UMTS and the like) radio standards allow for number/terminal priorisation, but if something like the Nodnol bombings ever happened again, the security services are not utterly happy of having to share the band.

Hence, for the 3gCops, expect to see them with two terminals or with some, even more expensive, dual Tetra-LTE (or whatever) terminals.

Add FTTH (Fibre to the home) to this and ....

voilá, home broadband consumers will start subsidising the cost of the mobile network, pretty much in the same way we are already doing with our handsets.
