TMCNet:  Automotive Integrated Center Stacks

Automotive Integrated Center Stacks

(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Dublin - Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/fwjtr7/automotive) has announced the addition of the "Automotive Integrated Center Stacks" report to their offering.

Automotive OEMs have been responding to the social revolution of consumer mobile devices, acting to expand telematics and smartphone integration into their vehicles, however they are keeping an eye on the design goals for continuous surfaces and brand identity. Is there a way that a touch display module can convey craftsmanship Automotive requirements for electronic durability are steep. An iPhone will not operate at -40 C, but car electronics need to.

OEMs such as Ford and General Motors have been steadily consolidating their infotainment and HVAC functions into a single stylized switch panel that is dissociated from the electronic intelligence, while others such as Volkswagen, continue to prefer radio and HVAC brick modules that can be replicated throughout numerous vehicles. Mechanical content such as CD players are targeted for elimination from the car, while new interfaces such as haptic touch panels and dead-front displays are in development. It is a challenging time as no one truly knows what the consumer wants.

The supply base now encompasses traditional Tier Ones, molders, printers, haptic technology licensors, semiconductor companies and increasingly, software developers. There are currently a number of potential entrants to the automotive center stack market.

A key area of interest in this report is the role of the electronic architectures, where a different type of behind the scenes integration is taking place, with attempts to reduce ECUs where possible, and envelop more functions into more powerful processors, to reduce bus traffic, which continues to give a lease on life for CAN architectures. Timely and relevant examples from recent European, Japanese, and North American vehicle launches are examined, to convey an understanding of the type of E/E strategy and functional partitioning at work.

This report evaluates the above developments together with styling trends and the evolving philosophies for HMI. Forecasts for the value of the integrated center stack market in 2011 and 2016 are presented.

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.

Featured Whitepapers

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.
