Ericsson Opens Communication - New Research Indicates Portal to Device Freedom

NEW YORK, January 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

What can the market expect from the mobile tech sector aside from more patent issues and litigation news? Take a look at what's keeping Ericsson busy these days, as they lead the show to the world's first IMS-based WebRTC platform.

While mobile tech giants keep their executives busy with their respective wars, more and more consumers use various social networks to air their dissatisfaction towards the most saleable gadgets on the market today. Consumers and investors have been greatly anticipating good news from the sector, and Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) [Full Research Report][1] is right on time to make waves this year.

In a global consumer report by Ericsson ConsumerLab, the company identified highly valuable consumer trends, behavioral changes and internet usage for 2013 and beyond. As discussed by Ericsson President and CEO Hans Vestberg, mobility, broadband and cloud are the key elements that will drive the company to its modern-day success story.

Ericsson recently uncovered its new communication technology, the IMS Innovation Platform, a "Web Real Time Communications" or WebRTC interface that is designed to reshape the consumer-enterprise habitat. This new platform is expected to make a high impact on communication services where new communication paradigms can be derived and better mobile service can be expected. WebRTC will enable developers to produce exceptionally creative applications that are not limited by their respective technology platforms.

"Developers will take the concept of the existing phone call, see it as a digital stream and innovate accordingly. Reading, transcribing, contextualizing, translating, on any connected device, using people's existing phone number - all are just the beginnings of possibility," said Geoff Hollingworth, head of Business Innovation, Ericsson North America.

The company seems to be on the right track, in terms of growth and sustainability, as they partner with big names including Volvo, AT&T, Unwired Planet and world-renowned DJ and Producer Avicii. In an industry that is expected to reach $203.8 billion or a growth of 35.5% by 2016, there is some light for Ericsson to be the game-changer without directly competing with mobile tech giants, Apple and Samsung.

At the 2013 International CES in Las Vegas, Ericsson President and CEO Hans Vestberg said that they are currently working with Volvo to produce a "Connected Vehicle Cloud" with a dashboard that is completely changed to display cloud information.

"Ericsson is a perfect partner for Volvo Car Group, bringing extensive experience and global business acumen to the table. On top of this, both companies share the same ambition to develop industry leading solutions in line with our shared vision of the future based on a networked society," said Lex Kerssemakers, Senior Vice President Product Strategy and Vehicle Line Management at Volvo Cars.

Meanwhile, Ericsson has been selected by AT&T to provide verification services for its Global SIM Program before it is launched globally. "Ericsson's global market leadership makes it a true one-stop-shop for device and application verification," said Glenn Lurie, President of Emerging Devices, Resale and Partnership of AT&T.

Despite the global headwinds that continue to shake the global market, Ericsson's slowdown in the Q4 of 2012 is reported to be more than expected. The company is expected to receive 70% of Unwired Planet's revenues after closing a 2,185 patent deal. Ericsson is also currently collaborating with Avicii to produce the world's first "crowd-sourced" hit song.

With this much activity going on in the company, Ericsson is on the right path to attracting investments and to redefining mobile technology.

WebRTC sits at the intersection between VoIP and the Web. As such, it poses some interesting challenges for those developing services on top of it, but also for those who need to test and monitor these services. In his session at WebRTC Summit, Tsahi Levent-Levi, co-founder of testRTC, reviewed the various challenges posed by WebRTC when it comes to testing and monitoring and on ways to overcome them.

WebRTC services have already permeated corporate communications in the form of videoconferencing solutions. However, WebRTC has the potential of going beyond and catalyzing a new class of services providing more than calls with capabilities such as mass-scale real-time media broadcasting, enriched and augmented video, person-to-machine and machine-to-machine communications. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Luis Lopez, CEO of Kurento, introduced the technologies required for implementing these idea...
Enterprise networks are complex. Moreover, they were designed and deployed to meet a specific set of business requirements at a specific point in time. But, the adoption of cloud services, new business applications and intensifying security policies, among other factors, require IT organizations to continuously deploy configuration changes. Therefore, enterprises are looking for better ways to automate the management of their networks while still leveraging existing capabilities, optimizing perf...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
