Movius CONNECT Receives Strong Score From Frost & Sullivan

ATLANTA - November 6, 2012 - Frost & Sullivan has given the brand new Movius CONNECT application a score of 161% indicating that it will likely rise significantly above the background noise in the connected home messaging market.

The score comes from one of Frost & Sullivan's annual consumer preference surveys. Using the findings, the analyst firm constructed a matrix for consumer value assessment to evaluate new products and services. A scorecard was then created that estimates the degree of resonance with the connected home market consumer.

Movius, a global leader in application enablement for service providers, has developed CONNECT to enable operators to engage in over the top (OTT) service delivery. Currently in trials, CONNECT will be globally available in early 2013 and will feature as part of the Movius Communication Applications Framework Engine (CAFÉ) platform. It allows for service providers to address both consumers and enterprise based customers.

"Movius CONNECT provides an important capability to network operators seeking to enter the OTT service provision space; one that enables OTT communication service delivery across any network or device. Movius CONNECT, if marketed appropriately, will find a significant number of interested consumers," said Mike Jude, Frost & Sullivan Program Manager for Connected Home.

As part of CONNECT's global launch, Movius Director of Marketing and Technology, Jose Romero, will be presenting at Rich Communication 2012 in Berlin, Germany on 6 - 7 November.

"While the RCS system is a great step forward, operators would be better served by offering an integrated open solution that allows customers to connect to any network, including RCS, via one portal. It is our vision that the operator acts as a central point connecting all social networks together and taking back the control - CONNECT achieves this," said Mr Romero.

The Frost & Sullivan ranking shows that CONNECT exceeds consumer expectations in four out of six of the variables. It meets expectations in one of the areas and it is not rated in another.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
