Messaging-Boom über Weihnachten und Neujahr

READING, England, January 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --


Spitzenwerte beim Multimedia-Messaging über die Feiertage laut Acision

Laut Acision, dem weltweite Marktführer im Bereich Mobile Messaging, stieg der MMS-Traffic über die Feiertage um bis zu 424 Prozent an. Besonders am 24. und 25. Dezember (Weihnachten und 1. Weihnachtsfeiertag) sowie am 31. Dezember (Silvester) wurden Spitzenwerte erreicht. Wie Acision in einem weltweiten Ländervergleich herausfand, wurden vor allem Videoinhalte über MMS geteilt. Ungeachtet des verbreiteten Zugriffs auf mobile Breitbandverbindungen, soziale Netzwerke oder Content Sharing-Anwendungen, ist somit Rich Mobile Messaging auch weiterhin gefragt.

Heutzutage möchten immer mehr Mobilkunden ihre aktuellen Erlebnisse mittels visuellen Inhalten und Bildern mit anderen teilen - sei es über Bild- und Videoanwendungen wie Instagram,  YouTube oder soziale Netzwerke, Communitys oder andere Nachrichtendienste. Diese Tendenz hat sich Ende des letzten Jahres noch einmal manifestiert, so dass Acision über die eigentlichen Feiertage Höchstwerte im MMS-Traffic feststellen konnte.

In Spanien steigerte sich beispielsweise die MMS-Nutzung an Heiligabend um 384 Prozent verglichen mit demselben Wochentag der Vorwoche. An Silvester wurde dieser Wert dann mit einer Steigerung von 424 Prozent noch einmal übertroffen. Eine ähnliche Entwicklung ließ sich in Argentinien beobachten, wo an Heiligabend ein Anstieg um 146 Prozent, an Silvester um 133 Prozent, sowie in der Silvesternacht ab Mitternacht um 377 Prozent gemessen wurde. In den USA nahm der MMS-Traffic am 1. Weihnachtsfeiertag im Vergleich zum gleichen Tag der Vorwoche um 78 Prozent und am Neujahrstag um 57 Prozent zu.

Als beliebteste Form von geteilten Multimediainhalten erwiesen sich dabei Videoclips. So nahm in Spanien der Video-Traffic am 24. Dezember 2012 um 972 Prozent zu. Dies zeigt, wie beliebt diese Form der Kommunikation bei Mobilfunkkunden ist, die besonders über die Feiertage MMS nutzen, um Grüße an Familie und Freunde zu senden. Beliebt war das Teilen von Videoinhalten auch in Argentinien (Steigerung um  475 Prozent) und in den USA (Steigerung um 289 Prozent) jeweils am 1. Weihnachtsfeiertag.

In Indien ermöglichte Acision die Zustellung von einer Million MMS-Nachrichten innerhalb von 24 Stunden für einen Netzbetreiber - ein Anstieg von 400 Prozent gegenüber dem Traffic eines Durchschnittstages. Beinahe identische MMS-Zahlen ließen sich in Indien während des Diwali-Fests verzeichnen. Dies ist ein typisches Beispiel für ein neues Kundenverhalten in aufstrebenden Regionen, wo Mobilnutzer Erlebnisse teilen möchten, aber nicht unbedingt über eine Breitbandverbindung verfügen, um dies über andere Netzwerkanwendungen abzuwickeln. Malaysia, ein überwiegend islamisches Land, verzeichnete ebenfalls einen Anstieg im MMS-Traffic um 31 Prozent bzw. 47 Prozent an Silvester und Neujahr, aber nur einen geringen Anstieg von 11 Prozent am 25. Dezember.

"Der Anstieg im Einsatz von Mobile Messaging während der Feiertage kommt nicht unbedingt überraschend. Er zeigt jedoch, dass sich MMS als zuverlässige Methode etabliert haben, Familie und Freunde während dieser Zeit mit Multimedianachrichten zu erreichen", erklärt Jorgen Nilsson, Chief Executive bei Acision. "Wir erklären uns Steigerung mit dem zunehmenden Wunsch der Kunden, Inhalte und besondere Momente zu teilen. Soziale Netzwerke sowie die wachsende Beliebtheit von intelligenten Endgeräten und der Zugriff auf Netzwerk-Anwendungen unterstützen diesen Trend."

"MMS bieten hier einen individuellen aber unaufdringlichen Weg, um Menschen  wissen zu lassen, dass man an sie denkt - vor allem für all diejenigen, die Freunde und Verwandte auf der ganzen Welt haben und die Festtage oder das Einläuten des neuen Jahres in unterschiedlichen Zeitzonen erleben. Sowohl in entwickelten wie in aufstrebenden Ländern vertrauen die Menschen auf MMS, um visuelle und Audio-Inhalte zu übermitteln, mit der Gewissheit, dass diese auch zuverlässig beim Empfänger ankommt. Richtig eingebunden bieten MMS Netzwerkbetreibern eine fantastische Gelegenheit, sich diesen Trend zunutze zu machen, da dieser Service auch ohne Breitbandverbindung funktioniert, so dass Kunden jederzeit versenden können", so Nilsson weiter.

Auch SMS wurden während der Feiertage intensiv genutzt. Spanien verzeichnete eine Steigerung um 40 Prozent an Weihnachten und Silvester; die USA um 27 Prozent am 1. Weihnachtstag. In Argentinien wurden an Neujahr 11 Prozent mehr SMS verschickt; in den USA 19 Prozent. Interessanterweise war in Argentinien die Steigerung des MMS-Traffics deutlich höher als in allen anderen untersuchten Ländern, aber bei SMS lag der Zuwachs zu Weihnachten bei lediglich 15 Prozent. Dies deutet darauf hin, dass mehr Nutzer umfassendere Multimedia-Angebote und deshalb MMS nutzen.

Eine Informa-Studie vom Mai letzten Jahres kam zu dem Ergebnis, dass bis 2016 über 387 Milliarden MMS verschickt werden, was 1,7 Prozent des weltweiten Messaging-Traffics entspricht. Damit lägen MMS auf dem zweiten Platz der erfolgreichsten Non-Voice Mobile Services weltweit nach SMS. Die Spitzenwerte zu Weihnachten und Neujahr beweisen die Beliebtheit von MMS zum Teilen von Inhalten, insbesondere bei Festtagen, Feierlichkeiten und Veranstaltungen.

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
Cultural, regulatory, environmental, political and economic (CREPE) conditions over the past decade are creating cross-industry solution spaces that require processes and technologies from both the Internet of Things (IoT), and Data Management and Analytics (DMA). These solution spaces are evolving into Sensor Analytics Ecosystems (SAE) that represent significant new opportunities for organizations of all types. Public Utilities throughout the world, providing electricity, natural gas and water, are pursuing SmartGrid initiatives that represent one of the more mature examples of SAE. We have s...
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
The 3rd International Internet of @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that its Call for Papers is now open. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the biggest idea since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
An entirely new security model is needed for the Internet of Things, or is it? Can we save some old and tested controls for this new and different environment? In his session at @ThingsExpo, New York's at the Javits Center, Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, reviewed hands-on lessons with IoT devices and reveal a new risk balance you might not expect. Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, has more than nineteen years' experience managing global security operations and assessments, including a decade of leading incident response and digital forensics. He is co-author of t...
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jeff Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrategies, will examine why IT must finally fulfill its role in support of its SBUs or face a new round of...
One of the biggest challenges when developing connected devices is identifying user value and delivering it through successful user experiences. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mike Kuniavsky, Principal Scientist, Innovation Services at PARC, described an IoT-specific approach to user experience design that combines approaches from interaction design, industrial design and service design to create experiences that go beyond simple connected gadgets to create lasting, multi-device experiences grounded in people's real needs and desires.
Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
"Matrix is an ambitious open standard and implementation that's set up to break down the fragmentation problems that exist in IP messaging and VoIP communication," explained John Woolf, Technical Evangelist at Matrix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robin Raymond, Chief Architect at Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services ...
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...
Bit6 today issued a challenge to the technology community implementing Web Real Time Communication (WebRTC). To leap beyond WebRTC’s significant limitations and fully leverage its underlying value to accelerate innovation, application developers need to consider the entire communications ecosystem.
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...
