OMA Announces Line Up of Demonstrations at Mobile World Congress 2013

Industry Leading Vendors and Operators Come Together to Demonstrate Next Generation Mobile Technologies

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/13/13 -- The Open Mobile Alliance (OMA) will showcase unique demonstrations from Huawei and Telecom Italia, amongst others, in a four-hour session at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Recently announced, the event will take place on 27 February in the Theater District, Hall 8.0, Theater C of the Fira Gran Via.

With presentations and demonstrations from some of the industry's leading vendors and operators, attendees are sure to gain an exclusive preview into up and coming technologies, across the entire wireless value chain, some of which are not yet commercially available.

Augmented reality will be addressed by Huawei and Telecom Italia, both showcasing the OMA MobAR (Mobile Augmented Reality) Enabler. Huawei will be showing its Smart Life software, which provides users with information in a 3D mode, using cameras rather than keywords to search and find what they need. Telecom Italia will demonstrate its Augmented Reality app receiving information and content based on geo-location information and user preferences from a server in the network, which can be displayed in real-time camera-view on the device.

Telecom Italia will also be addressing social media and will show how users belonging to different social media networks can interact, exchange activities and see reactions using federated mobile social networks, while keeping control over where their social data is used. Some extra features will also be presented, showing how proximity technologies such as mobile smart-codes or NFC can be used to trigger interaction between users. This demo will be based on the OMA SNeW (Social Network Web) Enabler.

Huawei will exhibit the OMA UVE (Unified Virtual Experience) Enabler for multi-screen sharing, through LiveShare. Currently not commercially available, this solution enables users to share content and screen views across devices including smartphones, tablets and smart TVs, as well communicating simultaneously with others.

In support of the OMA draft standard VirMO (Virtualization Management Object), Red Bend Software will show how different entities can manage each virtualized OS on a dual-persona smartphone used for BYOD (Bring Your Own Device). Using OMA DM-based management infrastructure, mobile operators can manage the consumer's personal phone, while enterprise IT administrators can manage the consumer's work phone.

Gemalto will be demonstrating its Device Management Expert, enabling telecom operators to reduce costs and stimulate data usage, by being able to standardize configuration and manage settings and application downloads on Android smartphones.

M2M will be a hot topic as the mobile industry looks at the growth of M2M device connections. This will be reflected in a session by Telecom Italia and Telecomunicazioni & Informatica, which will show a solution for Home Automation focused on integrating M2M Devices into Mobile Operators' Networks, even if those Devices aren't natively able to do so. This demo uses an OMA-DM M2M Gateway, bringing to life an OMA driven value chain.

Smart Home applications over next generation M2M will be presented by the Fraunhofer Institute for Open Communication Systems (FOKUS), showing the migration path for operators from a human communication paradigm towards Machine Type Communication (MTC). The demonstration will feature remote automation through mobile connectivity, near field communication, location and presence information, and user-defined policies to automate light and air conditioning.

Sensinode will show a complete device to cloud lightweight M2M asset management solution for outdoor lighting control. The system demonstrates the new OMA draft Lightweight M2M (LWM2M) Enabler, giving the global marketplace an open standard approach.

Location-based Services (LBS) will be demonstrated by some ground breaking technology from Invisitrack Inc that will evolve location awareness for enterprise, consumer and public safety that uses commonly available LTE signals for positioning.

CSR will be showcasing SiRFusion location technology, offering accurate indoor and outdoor navigation capability. The demonstration will feature services such as location based security and proximity awareness in addition to indoor navigation.

Comverse, Inc. and Interop Technologies will offer an overview of two different Rich Communication Services (RCS) and messaging solutions. The Comverse RCS/joyn and Next-Generation MultiVAS demonstrations will show how CSPs can make a smooth transition to the digital era. This leverages the evolution to all-IP/4G to increase revenues by harnessing data growth, enriching services with omni-device capabilities, integration with Internet services and more -- while reducing costs. Interop Technologies will demonstrate its RCS solution that incorporates the required IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) functions into the RCS server itself. This allows operators to launch RCS with or without an IMS core saving costs and complexity when deploying RCS in the network.

The demonstrations, all enabled by specifications developed by OMA member companies, will give attendees the opportunity to see how OMA Enablers can help deploy products and services with the broadest reach and are interoperable across networks, devices and geographic boundaries.

This unique session can be seen on Wednesday February 27, 2013 in the Theater District, Hall 8.0, Theater C, from 15.00 - 19.00. To register to attend this event, please contact Elizabeth Rose [email protected].

This event will also be open to a limited number of journalists to obtain previews of the demonstrations and the chance to speak to the companies attending. To register for a press pass to this event please contact Emma Johnson [email protected].

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.
The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.
We're entering the post-smartphone era, where wearable gadgets from watches and fitness bands to glasses and health aids will power the next technological revolution. With mass adoption of wearable devices comes a new data ecosystem that must be protected. Wearables open new pathways that facilitate the tracking, sharing and storing of consumers’ personal health, location and daily activity data. Consumers have some idea of the data these devices capture, but most don’t realize how revealing and...
A completely new computing platform is on the horizon. They’re called Microservers by some, ARM Servers by others, and sometimes even ARM-based Servers. No matter what you call them, Microservers will have a huge impact on the data center and on server computing in general. Although few people are familiar with Microservers today, their impact will be felt very soon. This is a new category of computing platform that is available today and is predicted to have triple-digit growth rates for some ...
