Beecham Research Results: Shift in Motivation for M2M Adoption

Nov 08, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- Beecham Research, an industry analyst firm covering the Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications/Internet-of-Things (IoT) marketplace, released key findings from its latest research, commissioned by Oracle, investigating solution requirements across the M2M value chain worldwide over the next few years and titled "Designing an M2M Platform for the Connected World." According to a release, the research found that M2M data from remotely located assets and devices in the field is increasingly being used more broadly for strategic purposes and value creation throughout the enterprise. It has also become a means for creating new market opportunities while providing a competitive advantage for enterprise users in their own key markets. The research is based on a qualitative survey involving in-depth interviews with M2M solution providers in North America, Europe and Asia Pacific regions, each providing their views on M2M solution requirements and trends across their customer base and live projects. This research was then backed by previously conducted quantitative surveys involving broader samples of M2M adopters. In addition to revealing a significant shift in M2M market drivers, the report identifies security and IT integration as the top two priorities for implementation of new M2M applications.

"Cheaper, more powerful devices and low cost mobile network connectivity are driving an explosion in the number of connected devices and data generated by them," said Chris Baker, senior vice president ISV, OEM and Java Sales, Oracle Alliances & Channels. "This research shows a shift in focus towards extracting value from that data and capitalizing on new business models which are enabled by the pervasion of connected devices. Beecham's insightful analysis clearly identifies key areas where Oracle's end-to-end M2M platform offers significant advantages for M2M solutions moving forward." "This research has identified two clear underlying trends in the rapidly developing M2M market. On the one hand, increasing integration of M2M data with IT systems and more strategic use of M2M data throughout the enterprise. On the other, the emergence of mass data requirements involving cross-sector service opportunities for largely consumer-related markets," said Robin Duke-Woolley, founder and CEO of Beecham Research. "From this we envisage not only significant new M2M platform opportunities, but also the emergence of new business models that will help to create new markets - an area of particular focus for Beecham Research. The M2M/IoT market is just changing into a higher gear." Beecham Research is a technology market research, analysis and consulting firm based in Cambridge UK and Boston US.

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.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER

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.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

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.
