Ericsson unveils new web development platform
Jan 11, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
Ericsson, a provider of communications infrastructure, services and multimedia solutions, has unveiled a new web development platform that will allow any connected device to be turned into an always-open communications device.
The new platform is an IMS-based 'Web Real Time Communications' (WebRTC) platform which enables web applications that will expand the ecosystem for enterprise and consumers, the company said.
By enabling any device to be reached by an existing mobile number, developers are empowered to re-invent existing communication services, create completely new communication paradigms and allow customers to receive increased value from their mobile service, the company added.
Geoff Hollingworth, head of Business Innovation, Ericsson North America, said: "Developers will take the concept of the existing phone call, see it as a digital stream and innovate accordingly. Recording, transcribing, contextualizing, translating, on any connected device, using people's existing phone number - all are just the beginnings of possibility."
