E.ON steps up to big data metering with Ericsson

(ENP Newswire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) ENP Newswire - 18 April 2013 Release date- 17042013 - E.ON Elnat Sverige AB (E.ON), part of one of the largest private energy companies in the world, has chosen Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) to provide a hosted solution including consulting and systems integration services, harnessing big data and smart grid solutions for its customers.

Ericsson's solution will gather data from energy meters and provide collected data to E.ON's internal IT environment. Data will be exported daily rather than monthly, increasing data delivery by 3000%. Ericsson will also provide E.ON with related field services. The agreement stretches over the next five years, and includes more than 600,000 metering points in northern Stockholm, Malmo, Orebro, as well as Norrkoping and Skane.

The Ericsson Smart Metering solution, provided as a service, helps providers like E.ON become more efficient. The solution combines managed services, consulting and systems integration services and includes meter reading and control, meter management, meter monitoring, Service Layer Agreement (SLA) management, work force management, asset management, business process management, as well as field services and an operations center.

The solution is an important step towards real-time big data measurements, supplying E.ON's customers with accurate and up to date information on energy consumption. The evolution of smart grids is a priority in a number of countries, including EU and the US, and will eventually create a smart energy network that manages a huge amount of data in 24-hour intervals.

This will open new opportunities for efficient grid and consumption management as well as a seamless integration of locally produced renewable energy into the infrastructure.

Currently regulations within the European Union require utilities, or Distribution System Operators, to deploy smart metering in order to ensure the first steps towards Smart Grids and more efficient energy usage.

Per-Olof Lindholm, Management Director at E.ON Elnat Sverige, said: 'In the long term, we believe empowered consumers will be more efficient in their energy usage and this will result in a more sustainable society.' Robert Puskaric, Ericsson's President of Region Northern Europe and Central Asia, which encompasses Scandinavia, said: 'As the Networked Society is coming to life, and we are on our way to 50 billion connected devices, we believe that a large part of machine-to-machine communication will come from Smart Grids and Smart Metering. With our global scale and expertise, operational excellence and commitment to standards, we can help E.ON and its customers realize great benefits.' Ericsson is currently supplying clients in Estonia and Italy with solutions and services for smart grids, supplying valuable experience from managed services to field support. In the Nordic region, Sweden has spearheaded the development of smart metering and grids.

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.

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.
