Research and Markets Adds Report: Global Meter Data Management Market 2012-2016 [Professional Services Close - Up]

(Professional Services Close - Up Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Meter Data Management Market 2012-2016" report to its offerings.

In a release, Research and Markets noted that report highlights include: The analysts forecast the Global Meter Data Management market to grow at a CAGR of 16.55 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the need to reduce the incidences of electricity theft. The Global Meter Data Management market has also been witnessing an increasing support from regulatory authorities. However, data management issues could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

The key vendors dominating this space include Elster Group SE, Itron Inc., Landis+Gyr AG, Oracle Corp., and Siemens AG.

The other vendors mentioned in this report are Aclara Software Inc., Cuculus GmbH, ElectSolve Technology Solutions & Services Inc., Enoro AS, Enoro AS, Ferranti Computer Systems N.V., Gruppo Engineering, Harris Utilities, North Star Utilities Solutions, OSIsoft Inc., Powel AS, and Robotron Datenbank-Software GmbH.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: The interest shown by regulatory authorities in installing smart energy meters is the most important trend in the Global Meter Data Management market. Across the globe, there has been an installation drive from the respective governments. The regulators develop the framework and policies to adopt smart energy meters. These are in turn implemented by utilities and thus smart energy meter installations have been growing around the world, which is in turn increasing usage of meter data management software. Countries such as the US and Canada have largely deployed smart energy meters due to the support of and regulations introduced by their governments. The US has allocated $3.4 billion in smart grid grants that would be utilized in installing smart energy meters and building a smart grid network within the country between 2010 and 2014. The Eastern European countries were early adopters of smart energy meters under the guidance of their respective governments. Furthermore, governments in some Asian and Western European countries have initiated pilot test programs to install smart energy meters.

According to the report, one of the major drivers is the reduction in electricity theft, facilitated by the installation of smart meters and usage of meter data management software. As meter data management facilitates better control and close monitoring of electricity used by its end-users, meter tampering can be avoided, which will in turn reduce the theft of electricity.

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.
