InnoPath Delivers Mobile Device Management for the Android OS (MDM addresses the multi-billion dollar smartphone support problem and creates a more positive customer experience)

This morning InnoPath issued a PR (also below) announcing client support for the T-Mobile G1. It was timed to coincide with the unveiling of the actual device. InnoPath’s ability to port its client to the Android OS is an example of its adaptability and modularity. The client has been adopted by major handset vendors including Samsung, LG and Nokia, and is also available for Windows Mobile and Symbian.


Here’s the release: InnoPath Software, the leader in Mobile Device Management (MDM), today announced support for the new mobile platform based on Google’s Android operating system (OS). With T-Mobile’s announcement today of the G1, wireless operators will look for ways to provide the most effective customer support for this new OS. InnoPath’s industry leading MDM client technology is based on experience gained from hundreds of millions of shipments to device manufacturers worldwide and years of operational experience in Tier-1 operator networks. This technology is now available on this groundbreaking mobile phone platform.


“InnoPath has a keen understanding of the impact of smartphones on operators’ frontline care organizations, as requirements begin to resemble laptop support more than traditional mobile phone support,” said Eric King, VP of Business Development for InnoPath. “Our early availability of a client for the Android operating system will positively impact the usability and supportability of this new platform as it begins to grow market share.”


Already supporting Windows Mobile and Symbian operating systems, the InnoPath OMA-DM device management client is unique in equipping mobile operators with standards-based, over-the-air support for their frontline care organizations, even for phones already in the field.

XCONNECT AND ACME PACKET DELIVER NEW

London, UK and Burlington, MA, September 23, 2008 —XConnect, the leader in VoIP Peering, and Acme Packet, Inc. (NASDAQ: APKT), the leader in session border control solutions, today announced successful testing of new methods that assist in the prevention of Spam over Internet Telephony (SPIT), also known as voice spam.


 


Unlike email spam, SPIT is still relatively uncommon and was somewhat obscure prior to the recent significant worldwide growth of VoIP communications. Now that VoIP has become more ubiquitous, the disruptive and intrusive nature of unwanted calls, coupled with the difficulty in detecting SPIT, has made this up-and-coming threat hard to ignore. Consequently, industry bodies such as the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) have recently begun placing increased focus on developing approaches to dealing with SPIT.


 


In one of the proposed approaches, peering federations use upstream SIP elements to tag or mark call attempts with a spam score indicating the likelihood of SPIT. Session border controllers (SBCs) are then configured at the borders between originating and terminating networks to interpret these scores and act accordingly. For example, a low or zero-value score will result in the SBC forwarding the call to the intended destination, while a higher score may result in the call being rerouted to a secure destination or rejected altogether by the SBC. Managed federations are good candidates for this approach and many of XConnect’s customers, across federations, have demanded significant SPIT detection and protection measures as prerequisites to enabling secure multi-lateral interconnections.   XConnect and Acme Packet are working together to implement this new methodology for the first time. 


 


“Until now, the few industry attempts to implement SPIT prevention have been ineffective, because approaches that mimic email spam solutions do not account for the realities and architectures of voice,” said Eli Katz, CEO of XConnect. “XConnect’s approach is the first to create an industry-standards-based infrastructure to allow calls and multimedia IP sessions to be identified and tagged with advanced SPIT threat information. This enables communication service providers to deal with this potential threat in an intelligent manner, on a call-by-call basis.”


 


“As more and more VoIP networks become interconnected, SPIT has the potential to create a plague that’s even worse than email spam,” stated Seamus Hourihan, vice president of marketing and product management at Acme Packet. “Acme Packet, leveraging its Net-SAFE™ (Session-Aware Filtering and Enforcement) security framework, is committed to working in tandem with VoIP peering federation providers, such as XConnect, who are actively engaged in preventing SPIT as well as other undesirable network activity.”


 


“SPIT may not be a household word yet, but service providers understand the potential for detracting from the VoIP experience,” said Jon Arnold of J. Arnold & Associates. “This spam score will provide another valuable metric to determine the quality of VoIP traffic that is being peered between service providers.”


 


Links to the IETF drafts describing the SPIT prevention approach mentioned above, as well as other relevant material, can be accessed via XConnect’s online media center (http://www.xconnect.net/voip_download.htm).


About XConnect Global NetworksLondon based XConnect is the leading provider of secure, ENUM based Peering Federations.  XConnect’s services enable telecom companies to offer rich multimedia IP communications on a cross-network basis and reduce interconnection costs.  Backed by Tier1 Venture Capital firms including Accel Partners and Venrock Associates, XConnect was selected by the cable industry in the Netherlands to operate the first national VoIP peering solution, and has lead industry consolidation via the acquisition of the European carrier ENUM exchange, e164.info and US-based peering service IPeerX Inc.

AiDi introduces Fiber Optic Ribbon Hermetic Feedthrough

Fiber Optic Ribbon Hermetic Feedthrough


Emeryville, CA, September 19, 2008 – AiDi Corporation has advanced current wavelength-switched optical metro and access network technology with its fiber optic ribbon hermetic feedthrough. The innovation is in AiDi’s ability to use ribbons with large fiber count, and manufacture in mass quantities while retaining consistent resilience to the environmental stress conditions defined by Telcordia.


Many advanced optical switch and VOA (Variable Optical Attenuator) technology platforms (MEMS, Liquid Crystal, Polymer, etc.) for wavelength channel switching require encapsulated environments. Therefore, the fiber ribbon pigtails must maintain a hermetic seal. For large channel count ribbons, traditional feedthrough assemblies are not robust enough to survive Telcordia environmental qualification. AiDi pioneers the technology for mass production of ribbon feedthroughs with high channel count of 12 or more.


“As the markets for WSS (Wavelength Selective Switch) modules, VOA arrays, advanced multiplexers and demultiplexers, and other modules mature, the demand will grow and deployment will be limited by the ability of manufacturers to produce in adequate volume. This innovation eliminates a potential bottleneck in the overall supply chain and helps enable current and future wavelength-switched optical networks,” says Kenzo Ishida, President and CEO of AiDi Corporation.


In addition, unlike other suppliers, AiDi takes complete control of the supply chain from selection of raw materials through to delivery of the final product. The result of this model for customers is more confidence in the product integrity along with very rapid product development cycles.


About AiDi Corporation


AiDi Corporation is a global company that offers innovative, high-value, Passive Optical Network (PON) products and service. AiDi leads the way to expanding optical network markets and deployments through improved network efficiency and economics. AiDi has exceptional technical leadership in the industry, providing customers with advanced networking options at a lower total cost of ownership.

InnoPath Delivers Mobile Device Management Client on Casio G’zOne

Leading MDM Innovator Expands Standards-based FOTA with Addition of New Handset


image001.jpgInnoPath Software, the leader in Mobile Device Management (MDM), has extended its reach with OMA-DM client support on the Casio G’zOne Boulder. The G’zOne, recently launched into the North American market, is a ruggedized, field-force optimized phone with CDMA/EVDO, video, GPS, and push-to-talk capabilities. The InnoPath client, coupled with the company’s server at the wireless operator, helps avoid device recalls and provides a better end-user experience with Firmware updates Over The Air (FOTA).


FOTA, a relatively new technology for North American operators, allows the update of firmware on devices such as mobile phones deployed in the field. In the past, firmware updates needed to be done by re-flashing the device at a retail store or service center. Because FOTA allows operators to upgrade features or patch firmware without needing to physically touch or recall the device, this technology is increasingly popular with operators trying to deliver the best possible subscriber experience. Indeed, some operators have mandated that all new phones ship with FOTA capability.


Casio’s selection of the InnoPath iMDM Client for the G’zOne is evidence of the company’s continued technical leadership and operational expertise, including its unique Port-to-Production program. Over the last four quarters, the InnoPath client has been ported to over fifty handset models by almost every major OEM.


“As mobile devices continue to increase in complexity, the cost of customer care’s impact on operators’ bottom line will grow just as quickly. This means that now is the time for them to implement MDM and re-invent their frontline customer care,” stated David Ginsburg, vice president of Marketing for InnoPath. “The ROI for MDM in support of customer care has been validated by analyst firms like Stratecast and represents immediate cost savings in the billions by 2009. InnoPath’s end-to-end MDM solution is key to this evolution of wireless operators’ customer care organizations.”
