Intel continues move into smartphones with 3G system-on-a-chip

(Flare (Pakistan) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Intel announced that it is planning to make a new systemon-a-chip with integrated 3G radio support available to select customers in the fourth quarter. The SMARTi UE2p integrates power amplifiers and management tools for a 3G HSPA transceiver on a single 65nm die, which Intel says will lower total cost of ownership and make it easier to design machine-to-machine communication systems and entry-level smartphones using its technology.

"This will allow our customers to introduce lower-cost 3G handsets and support the transition of the machine-tomachine market segment toward 3G-based connected devices to help enable the 'Internet of things,'" Intel Architecture Group Vice President Stefan Wolff said in a statement. Wolff also noted that the new SoC will simplify supply chains by reducing the number of parts needed to manufacture a given product.

Intel also says that it would continue to work with power amplification manufacturers in the mobile space and that the first samples of the SMARTi UE2p will be provided to some of those partners in late 2012.

The mobile segment has been one of the few parts of the processor market where Intel has lagged behind the competition. Despite the company's dominance in many other sectors, the vast majority of today's smartphones are designed around ARM SoCs, which are highly energy-efficient.

Intel has slowly begun to make headway in mobile of late, however, thanks to its introduction of the Medfield chipset and ongoing adaptation of its Atom low-power processor line for use in the fast-growing tablet 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.
