Carl Zeiss Gains Ground in Mainland China

SHANGHAI --(Business Wire)--

The Semiconductor Manufacturing International (News - Alert) Corporation (SMIC), headquartered in Shanghai, China, have purchased multiple systems for photomask verification, repair and metrology from Carl Zeiss Semiconductor Metrology Systems (SMS) Division (www.zeiss.com/sms), a leading supplier of both photomask metrology and manufacturing equipment. SMIC will apply the tools as economic solutions for their mask services.

"This step is strategically very important for Carl Zeiss SMS as the semiconductor market in China is still on an emerging path." states Dr. Oliver Kienzle, CEO of Carl Zeiss SMS GmbH.

SMIC purchased an AIMS™ system for qualifying their photomasks for the advanced node and beyond. To repair the detected defects SMIC will use the ZEISS MeRiT® MG system, which allows high end mask repair based on the state-of-the-art e-beam mask repair platform. New to the SMIC production line will be the metrology tool PROVE®, which will be applied for high performance image placement measurements.

SMIC is one of the leading semiconductor foundries worldwide, providing integrated circuit (IC) foundry and technology services at 0.35-micron to 40-nanometer.

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.

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.
