Spanische Mobilfunkanbieter starten landesweiten joyn-Dienst

- Kunden von Movistar, Orange und Vodafone haben ab sofort Zugang zu vollständig interoperablen und sicheren Rich Communications Services

MADRID, 28. November 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Die GSMA gab heute bekannt, dass die drei führenden Mobilfunkanbieter in Spanien, Movistar, Orange und Vodafone, unter der Marke joyn™, die sich an Endanwender richtet, gemeinsame Rich Communication Services (RCS) für ihre Kunden eingeführt haben. Damit ist Spanien das weltweit erste Land, in dem eine vollständig kompatible Rich Communications-Lösung auf dem Markt ist, die den Mobilfunkkunden von Movistar, Orange und Vodafone zugänglich ist.

Mithilfe der joyn-Dienste können die Kunden chatten und Textnachrichten oder Sprachanrufe mit Bildern oder Videos ergänzen, die gleichzeitig mit einem Gespräch auf sichere und private Weise mit allen Personen auf ihrer Kontaktliste, die joyn nutzen, ausgetauscht werden. Dabei spielt es keine Rolle, welchen Anbieter oder welches mobile Gerät die Nutzer verwenden. Weitere Dienstleistungen, z. B. Voice over IP (VoIP) oder IP-Videotelefonate, sollen demnächst hinzukommen. Die Dienste können sowohl über die Mobilfunknetze als auch über die Wi-Fi-Netzwerke dieser Anbieter genutzt werden.

„Die GSMA ist hocherfreut, dass die joyn-Dienste jetzt in ganz Spanien verfügbar sind und den Kunden eine größere Auswahl an Kommunikationsdienstleistungen bieten, ohne dass die Qualität und die Sicherheit, die sie von ihren Anbietern mittlerweile gewohnt sind, darunter leiden", meint Michael O'Hara, Marketingleiter bei der GSMA. „Diese erste Implementierung einer neuen Technologie erforderte große Anstrengungen und viel Führungsstärke bei der Abstimmung der Systeme der einzelnen Hersteller, Entwickler, Integratoren und Anbieter aufeinander. Überall auf der Welt werden die Verbraucher von den Bemühungen und der Vorreiterrolle der drei spanischen Mobilfunkanbieter profitieren."

Movistar, Orange und Vodafone bieten die joyn-Dienste zunächst über eine Anwendung für Android an, eine Version für das iPhone soll in Kürze folgen. Die spanischen Mobilfunknutzer können joyn nun über App Stores herunterladen. Demnächst sollen auch mehrere mit joyn ausgestattete Geräte erhältlich sein, deren Interoperabilität mit den drei Mobilfunkanbietern gründlich getestet wurde. Um die Marke „joyn" führen zu dürfen, müssen die Geräte umfangreiche Interoperabilitätstests bestehen und einen Zertifizierungsprozess durchlaufen, wodurch Qualität, Schutz der Privatsphäre, Sicherheit und Erreichbarkeit der Dienste sichergestellt werden sollen. Mit joyn ausgestattete Geräte werden voraussichtlich ab Anfang 2013 im Einzelhandel erhältlich sein.

„Bei der Entwicklung dieser interoperablen Lösung für ihre Kunden hatten die Anbieter im Zuge des RCS-Programms auch Gelegenheit, sich untereinander über ihre Erfahrungen und Erkenntnisse auszutauschen, wodurch sie die Markteinführungszeit dieses Dienstes verkürzen konnten", fährt O'Hara fort. „Die joyn-Dienste sind ab sofort bei einzelnen Anbietern in Deutschland und den USA erhältlich. Voraussichtlich werden in Deutschland noch in diesem Jahr und in einigen weiteren europäischen Ländern im Laufe des Jahres 2013 weitere anbieterübergreifende Implementierungen vorgenommen werden."

Personalization has long been the holy grail of marketing. Simply stated, communicate the most relevant offer to the right person and you will increase sales. To achieve this, you must understand the individual. Consequently, digital marketers developed many ways to gather and leverage customer information to deliver targeted experiences.

Every successful software product evolves from an idea to an enterprise system. Notably, the same way is passed by the product owner's company. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Oleg Lola, CEO of MobiDev, will provide a generalized overview of the evolution of a software product, the product owner, the needs that arise at various stages of this process, and the value brought by a software development partner to the product owner as a response to these needs.
For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.
Smart Cities are here to stay, but for their promise to be delivered, the data they produce must not be put in new siloes. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mathias Herberts, Co-founder and CTO of Cityzen Data, discussed the best practices that will ensure a successful smart city journey.
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
Data is an unusual currency; it is not restricted by the same transactional limitations as money or people. In fact, the more that you leverage your data across multiple business use cases, the more valuable it becomes to the organization. And the same can be said about the organization’s analytics.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
