People Monitoring and Safety Solutions - Family Locator Services to Reach 70 Million Active Users in Europe and North America By 2016

DUBLIN, April 18, 2013 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/tmtjqp/people_monitoring) has announced the addition of Berg Insight AB's new report "People Monitoring and Safety Solutions" to their offering.

(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20130307/600769 ) According to a new research report from the analyst firm Berg Insight, the number of active users of family locator services in Europe and North America is forecasted to grow from 16 million in 2011 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 34 percent to reach 70 million in 2016. In terms of number of users, family locator services is the largest segment for people monitoring and safety solutions based on either GPS-enabled smartphones or dedicated cellular/GPS location devices. Many parents are now discovering free and low cost apps that can turn a smartphone into a location device that enable monitoring of family members such as children or elderly. Growing adoption of smartphones has also enabled rapid uptake of business-oriented location apps, such as workforce management services that can improve operational efficiency in organisations with mobile employees. Industry sectors leading the adoption of workforce management include construction, distribution, healthcare and companies with extensive field services operations. Dedicated location devices can be better suited than smartphones for some people location services. Numerous device vendors address the needs of people caring for persons suffering from various medical conditions, such as autism and other cognitive limitations, epilepsy, cardiac problems and diabetes. Another market for dedicated people tracking devices include systems that assist seniors living at home or in care homes. These systems are usually called telecare systems or social alarms in Europe and Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS) in the US. Berg Insight estimates that there are already 5 million users of the first generation social alarms connected to wireline networks in Europe and North America.

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.

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

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

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

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.

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.
