Libelium Internet of Things Platform Certified as ThingWorx-Ready

EXTON, Pa. --(Business Wire)--

ThingWorx™ today announced that Libelium, a leader in the design and manufacturing of wireless sensor network hardware, has completed certification of their Meshlium Sensor Networking Gateway (News - Alert) device as ThingWorx-Ready™. This certification makes the Libelium Waspmote Plug & Sense!™ sensor platform compatible with the ThingWorx platform - the industry's first application development platform designed to reduce the effort required to build Machine-to-Machine (M2M) solutions and sensor applications for the emerging connected world.

The ThingWorx-Ready Program, recently launched by ThingWorx, allows hardware and software companies to pre-integrate their product with the ThingWorx rapid application development platform, greatly simplifying the creation and deployment of M2M solutions. These companies provide a wide variety of products throughout the entire connected world value chain - from software systems and cloud platforms to smart sensors, devices, gateways and machines. Being "plug-and-play" reduces the cost and risk of wireless sensor and Internet of Things deployments for end customers, helping accelerate the growth of the overall space.

"Our aim is to reduce our customers' time-to-market while remaining as a horizontal hardware provider for the Internet of Things. We achieve both of these advanages with the integration into the ThingWorx platform," stated Alicia Asín Pérez, CEO of Libelium.

Libelium's certification as ThingWorx-Ready creates a pre-integrated solution that will improve time to market and reduce overall solution costs for its customers. The ThingWorx-Ready certification exposes Libelium's hardware technology to the ThingWorx ecosystem of OEMs, "Smart" application providers, system integrators, and resellers, making its product a preferred choice for customer applications.

"With the number of connected devices projected to grow from one billion to 50 billion over the next 10 years the number of connected solutions must expand at a similarly rapid rate. This represents a tremendous opportunity for companies that can quickly develop end-to-end solutions," said Russ Fadel, CEO and Co-Founder of ThingWorx. "Making our partners' products 'ThingWorx-Ready' exposes them to the entire ThingWorx ecosystem and further extends the 5X to 10X development efficiency advantage that a ThingWorx based solution offers."

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.
