SS8 Networks Highlights Importance of Lawful Intercept Technologies at e-Crime Congress 2008

SS8 Networks provides a unique insight into advanced Lawful Intercept technologies, and the challenges Lawful Intercept currently faces in the European information market

London, UK, 5th March 2008 - SS8 Networks, the global leader in Lawful Intercept (LI) will be emphasising the capabilities of today’s advanced LI solutions during this week’s e-Crime Congress in London. Despite current heightened public interest surrounding LI technologies, particularly in the UK, with British Prime Minister Gordon Brown advocating the possible use of intercept in sensitive cases within the British legal system, many Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs) and other stakeholders in the fight against e-Crime need to become fully versed in the issues and processes surrounding LI best practices.

“With our multiple offices in EMEA and our unparalleled experience in providing standards based LI solutions, we are continually educating stakeholders and furthering their knowledge about the relevance of intercept within today’s sensitive information climate,” said Colin Verrall, Vice President EMEA, SS8 Networks. “The main considerations of any LI solution are the interfaces between the network equipment and the LI technology at the service provider end and the connections to LEAs at the other end. In Europe, with our technology being standards-based, we comply with all the appropriate ETSI interfaces.”

SS8 Networks LI solutions encompass the award winning Xcipio™ platform providing the three necessary elements required for utilising intercept information rapidly, effectively and appropriately; access, mediation and collection. The capability of SS8’s end-to-end solution is a mainstay in the international LI market place and is currently deployed by over 250 service providers, and is capable of intercepting traffic from over 500 million subscribers worldwide.
