NTT DATA and TSSG launch collaborative research project on data analysis

Nov 09, 2012 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) -- NTT DATA Corporation and Telecommunications Software & Systems Group, or TSSG, have launched a collaborative research project on data analysis utilizing Big Data and Business Analytics in the smart grids field, starting in November 2012.

NTT DATA and TSSG will jointly focus on conducting socially motivated research, initially in the smart grids domain, which will have an impact for system stabilization, operational management optimization, and service improvement. The team will announce results of this collaborative research in April 2013.

NTT DATA and TSSG are embarking on a collaborative research project specifically to investigate system optimization and service improvement based on analysis of the multi-dimensional data generated throughout the energy supply system. In this collaborative effort, NTT DATA will lead the research in building reactive algorithms that autonomously adjust based on variable conditions, while TSSG will apply its domain knowledge in smart grid research and lead the M2M research component. Through this research, they expect to push the state of the art in the areas of algorithmic development using Big Data technologies and M2M communications in the smart grids domain.

The main objective of this research is to develop the data analysis technology which detects changes in status, and dynamically adjusts the corresponding data analysis model. In smart grids, it is necessary to react to fluctuating variables and accurately control the balance between energy supply and demand. These data analysis models can then be used for short to medium term energy prediction to enable all elements of the energy chain forecast supply and demand with confidence.

Dr Kitani, vice president, head of R&D headquarters of NTT DATA, said, "NTT DATA has been expanding partnerships with research institutes worldwide to explore advanced technologies and create new services. This collaboration in the area of Big Data and Business Analytics with TSSG will have numerous achievements from many industry led research projects providing solutions to real-world issues. In particular this partnership will be the first step for NTT DATA to extend our R&D capabilities into Ireland, one of the best countries to develop innovative solution." http://www.datamonitor.com Republication or redistribution, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited without prior written consent.

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.

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.
