Analysis: China's IC industry likely to recover in Q2

SHANGHAI, Mar 23, 2012 (Xinhua via COMTEX) -- With demand from the European market down and the global economic recovery weak, the growth rate of China's integrated circuit (IC) industry has obviously fallen since 2011. Nevertheless, a number of analysts speaking at the conference running aside the SEMICON China, SOLARCON China, and FPD China 2012 in Shanghai say the IC market in the country is expected to recover from the second quarter of 2012.

The market value of the global semiconductor industry witnessed year-on-year growth of 0.4 percent to 299.5 billion US dollars in 2011, of which China's IC industry accounted for 806.56 billion yuan, up 9.7 percent year on year, according to the latest data released by the China Semiconductor Industry Association.

China's IC design industry maintained rapid growth in 2011 with operating turnover of 47.37 billion yuan, registering a rise of 30.2 percent year on year. Yet at the same time, the growth rate of the IC manufacturing industry dropped quickly. Chip manufacturing industry generated revenues of 48.69 billion yuan, up 8.9 percent year on year, and the seal industry reaped operating turnover of 61.16 billion yuan, down 2.8 percent year on year.

Analysts predict that the global semiconductor market will still expect prosperous performance in 2012 even though the growth rate of the IC industry declined last year. The industry will become the most dynamic and promising market to push up the rapid development of IC industry in China, driven by a new generation information technology, energy-saving industrial practices, and the growth of domestic demand.

According to an expert from CCIDNET.com, China's IC industry will maintain 9 percent growth over the next few years mainly due to the output expansion of PCs, cell phones, LCD TVs and other electronics products. Meanwhile, development in the fields of the Internet of Things, cloud computing, the new-energy industry, LEDs, and the telehealth industry will spur China's IC market.

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
