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."

Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...
Cognitive Computing is becoming the foundation for a new generation of solutions that have the potential to transform business.

I'm a lonely sensor. I spend all day telling the world how I'm feeling, but none of the other sensors seem to care. I want to be connected.

And when all my friends go outside without me, I may be left behind. Don't just log my data; use the relationship graph. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Boyd, Engi...

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...

WebRTC adoption has generated a wave of creative uses of communications and collaboration through websites, sales apps, customer care and business applications. As WebRTC has become more mainstream it has evolved to use cases beyond the original peer-to-peer case, which has led to a repeating requirement for interoperability with existing infrastructures. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Graham Holt, Executive Vice President of Daitan Group, will cover implementation examples that have enabled ea...
Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...
Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud?

How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
