Connode AB and Itron to Provide Smart Metering Communications to Vattenfall Heat Sweden Operations [Manufacturing Close - Up]

(Manufacturing Close - Up Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Connode AB announced that it has reached an agreement to deliver Connode wireless mesh communication solution as a core component in Swedish utility Vattenfall Heat Sweden Operations' deployment of remote heat meters in the Uppsala region in Sweden .

According to a release, Vattenfall Heat Sweden Operations is a subsidiary of Vattenfall, a utility company in Northern Europe. Some 8000 heat meters using Connode M-Bus enabled Wireless communication terminals will be deployed under this agreement. Itron smart head- end system software, already in production for the commercial and industrial meters, will be used to obtain billing information.

"This is a first significant step in our collaboration with Itron as well as a first deployment of an M-Bus enabled Connode 3 system. Multi-utility meter deployments, using M-Bus (i.e. electricity in combination with gas, water and heating) is a key requirement in many markets, so we see this as an important enhancement of our product portfolio, which will deliver outstanding operational performance to our customers," says Bjorn Lindblom, CEO at Connode.

The smart metering market in Europe is projected to grow 18 percent annually the coming 5-10 years. New functionality for smart metering is becoming more complex and the importance of reliable and cost efficient communication solutions will increase significantly. Wireless mesh communications technology is one of the prime alternatives due to its ability to meet current and future requirements on lifecycle cost and performance.

Connode AB is a supplier in Europe of wireless communication products for Smart Metering, acting as an OEM and technology supplier to system vendors active on the expanding Smart Grid market.

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.
