DSP, the world's #1 voice and video over IP engines provider serving
more than 1 billion users in 100+ countries, announced today five years
of non-stop partnership with Huawei, the world's largest
telecommunications equipment provider. Huawei's products and services
are deployed in over 100 countries and serve 45 of the world's top 50
telecom operators, as well as one third of the world's population.
Since November 2007, several contracts were signed between the two
companies, including SPIRIT’s voice engine and video engine licensed by
Huawei for PCs and mobile platforms, including Windows, MacOS, iOS and
Android. As a result, today SPIRIT’s voice and video engines are part of
Huawei’s software and hardware products, which are used worldwide by
dozens of national telcos, serving totally more than 100 million users.
In 2007, Huawei licensed SPIRIT's TeamSpirit® Voice Engine PC
to offer the highest quality PC VoIP solution to its operator and
service provider customers. At the Huawei IMS Summit, which took place
in Beijing during the PT/EXPO 2007, Huawei listed SPIRIT among its key
partners, along with IBM, HP, Broadsoft and about 10 other major players
of the global telecom industry.
Later Huawei has extended its license with SPIRIT for HD voice and video
multiple times. Huawei uses SPIRIT's TeamSpirit Voice&Video Engine PC in
Huawei's IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem), Unified Communications (UC) and
Fixed Mobile Convergence (FMC) solutions to carriers. Huawei also
extended its license with SPIRIT for wideband Mobile VoIP (voice over
IP) and video calling.
Today, both SPIRIT and Huawei continue to cooperate tightly on a
day-to-day basis in voice and video over IP-based networks. Huawei
continues to expand its customer base, including products designed for
telcos' using TeamSpirit engines for mobile and PC. "LTE-networks bring
communications to new level, and require software that can cope with new
challenges and complexity of offering cross-platform IP communications,"
said SPIRIT's Chairman Andrew Sviridenko. "We continue to develop
innovative software products for voice and video over IP-networks
expected by our valued telco customers, and this ongoing relationship
with Huawei underscores the importance that telcos around the world are
placing on delivering HD voice and video in their VVoIP services."

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.

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives.
Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, wh...

Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist. However, there are many IoT use cases where the cloud is not feasible or desirable.
In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, will discuss the strategies that exist to extend intelligence directly to IoT devices and sensors, freeing them from the constraints of ...

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.

Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments. However, the rate of the change, and the potential outcomes from today's digital transformation has the distinct potential to separate the industry into two camps: Organizations that see the change coming, embrace it, and successful leverage it; and...

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to be chaos.
In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate a...

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. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not.

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal.
In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...

In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.

Digital transformation is too big and important for our future success to not understand the rules that apply to it. The first three rules for winning in this age of hyper-digital transformation are:
Advantages in speed, analytics and operational tempos must be captured by implementing an optimized information logistics system (OILS)
Real-time operational tempos (IT, people and business processes) must be achieved
Businesses that can "analyze data and act and with speed" will dominate those t...
