Wave of New Mobile Devices Complicates the Delivery of Optimal Mobile Experience - Keynote to the Rescue!

BARCELONA, Spain --(Business Wire)--

Keynote® (NASDAQ: KEYN), the global leader in Internet and mobile cloud testing and monitoring, today announced device support for iOS 6, Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) and Windows 8 devices with its DeviceAnywhere platform. The newest additions to the Keynote device portfolio extend the company's position as the market leader in devices supported for real mobile device testing. DeviceAnywhere (News - Alert) support now includes the newest popular devices including the iPhone 5, Nokia Lumia 920 and the Droid RAZR M.

Delivering a consistent high-quality mobile experience continues to be a major challenge for companies interested in reaching a diverse universe of mobile users. Keeping up with the continually evolving device ecosystem presents some of the biggest challenges facing QA teams. While the number of operating systems and OEM device manufacturers are shrinking, device fragmentation continues to be a big issue. Testers new to mobile quickly realize that one Android device may behave quite differently than the next. Meanwhile, Apple has introduced new form factors for their iOS devices with the introduction of iPhone 5 and iPad mini. As new Windows 8 and BlackBerry (News - Alert) OS devices also hit the market, device fragmentation adds an additional layer of complexity to mobile development. By adding the most up-to-date mobile devices to the DeviceAnywhere library, Keynote helps testers keep up with the changing mobile landscape, while maintaining the flexibility needed to address future changes.

"As an increasing number of new mobile device types and form factors arise, Keynote is delivering the most up-to-date mobile testing solutions in the market," said Vik Chaudhary, vice president of product management and corporate development at Keynote. "The ability to test across the latest device models and form factors with real devices gives users the most accurate way to test their mobile websites and mobile apps without the overhead of purchasing and maintaining a portfolio of mobile devices. With the addition of these new devices across the DeviceAnywhere platform, users are able to leverage the power of real, remote, manual and automated device testing from the cloud."

All existing Keynote DeviceAnywhere customers will have access to the newly supported devices from all products including: DeviceAnywhere Test Center Developer®, DeviceAnywhere TCE Interactive®, DeviceAnywhere TCE Automation® and DeviceAnywhere TCE Monitoring®.

Keynote also recently introduced DeviceAnywhere Fre, the first completely free tool for remote, real device interactive testing; giving users a real-time view of their mobile websites on select smartphones via a streamlined Web interface. When a user's needs surpasses basic spot-checking, Keynote's Test Center Developer and Test Center Enterprise provide a seamless upgrade path to fully test mobile websites and applications.

Keynote will be demonstrating the power of real device testing first-hand at Mobile World Congress, from February 25th - 28th in Hall 6, Stand 6C71.

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.
