LTE networks vulnerable to inexpensive jamming technique
A laptop, an inexpensive transmitter, and a little technical knowledge is all that’s necessary to take down the high-speed wireless data networks that are being embraced as the future of wireless communications, researchers warn.
As wireless consumers are increasingly doing more with their smartphones, demand for faster, persistent connections is also growing. Boasting speeds four times as fast as current 3G networks, long-term evolution (LTE) is being deployed across the country by every wireless carrier in the United States. Verizon, which was the first national carrier to launch LTE,…
