OMA Announces Various Demonstrations at Mobile World Congress 2013
With a surge in demand for affordable wireless connectivity, wireless technologies are growing in prominence.
Naturally, the market for wireless technology is growing at an unprecedented rate. New technologies are being introduced every day and many smart inventions are being unveiled almost as frequently.
The Open Mobile Alliance (OMA) will reportedly display some of the latest demonstrations from Huawei (News - Alert) and Telecom Italia at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The Mobile World Congress will allow attendees to have sneak peak at the latest technologies and gadgets in the wireless world, the alliance has stated.
Both Huawei and Telecom Italia (News - Alert) will be displaying OMA MobAR (Mobile Augmented Reality) Enabler at the Mobile World Congress. While Huawei’s Smart Life software allows users to get all the information they need in a 3D mode, the Augmented Reality app from Telecom Italia allows for the access of information based on geo-location data.
Telecom Italia believes the company’s product helps users in social media to interact with one another and share activities. It also allows them to watch reactions with the help of federated mobile social networks.
OMA UVE (Unified Virtual Experience) Enabler from Huawei makes use of LiveShare to provide features such as multi-screen sharing. Although the product is not commercially available, it is expected to make communication easier and allows users to share information across various platforms, the company has stated.
The Mobile World Congress focuses on all types of wireless technologies in the development stage, or being readied for introduction in the near future. These technologies include Rich Communications Services (RCS), Small Cell Networks, Enterprise Cloud Solutions, and many others.
Recently, the company announced it will be participating in a panel discussion on M2M and the Internet of Things at the 4G World conference in Chicago, IL.
