Analysis: texting profits at risk as users look elsewhere

Reuters

Text-messaging has long been a big-time profit generator for U.S. mobile operators, but they now risk losing these profits as consumers find cheaper ways to communicate.  SMS (short message service) is currently generating an estimated 12% of service revenue for U.S. operators, but now many consumers are turning to low-cost alternatives like iMessenger, BlackBerry Messenger and Facebook's mobile messaging service.

Ireland draws up smart grid, electric vehicle roadmap

The Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) recently unveiled three energy roadmaps to focus on the potential benefits of Ireland moving to a future energy system where electricity, managed via a smart grid, meets more of the country’s energy needs.  The roadmaps, which are developed to inform energy policy in Ireland, demonstrate the potential to positively exploit abundant, indigenous energy resources, create employment and reduce our CO2 emissions, says the SEAI.

Telecom operators need automation in wireless infrastructure

Wireless operators have grown networks to a point past the level of complexity that can be managed and optimized manually.  Today, wireless networks have up to 6-layers at the macro level with additional micro levels inserted in key areas where network capacity is an issue.  In order to manage the complexity of interoperability handoffs and signaling necessary to provide the highest call quality, operators need automation.

Interoperability Group formed for rollout of smart meters in UK

Last week, Trilliant (Redwood City, Calif., U.S.A.), a smart grid equipment provider, announced it has launched an Interoperability Group that unifies multiple home energy management devices within a single eco-system.  The formation of the group aims to help consumers cut their energy bills by up to 10% by installing smart meters

Verizon cloud-based identity-as-a-service gets level 3 ICAM certification

Telecom operator Verizon (New York) announced on Monday that its cloud-based managed identity-as-a-service offering has been approved for Level 3 Identity, Credential and Access Management (ICAM) certification.

Diameter routing in 3G, IMS and LTE networks: Tekelec one-on-one

Mobile data traffic is increasing at an enormous rate, which is driving many mobile operators to switch from a 3G network to all-internet protocol (IP) network, such as LTE, to manage the high volume of traffic.  The Diameter protocol, which is used on most IP networks, plays a central role in the management of 4G LTE and IMS networks and 3G charging and policy deployments.  TelecomEngine spoke with Jason Emery, Director of Product Management at Tekelec, to discuss how its Diameter Signaling Router (DSR) product supports multiple networks, including LTE, through the centralization

Improving Performance of 3G, IMS, and LTE Networks with the Diameter Agent

The Diameter protocol defines a new network node - the Diameter agent (DA) – which operators can leverage to create a Diameter signaling layer in IP networks. This paper looks at how to improve the performance of 3G, IMS and LTE networks with the Diameter Agent.

UPS Worldwide Fleet Ops offer glimpse of best practices, standards

In an exclusive interview with M2M Newsdesk, UPS’s Jim Medeiros, vice president of Shared Services, describes the company’s systems and the benefits realized with the broad deployment of telematics technology for fleet management. Real-time vehicular monitoring helped the shipping giant reduce the amount of fuel consumed per package in the United States by 3.3% and engine idling time by 15.4% in 2010. Data sensors track how vehicles perform mechanically, as well as a driver’s route and behavior behind the wheel.
