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.

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 @...
Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...

We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It does...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...
Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, will share examples from a wide range of industries – includin...
