BroadSource EMU SaaS allows BroadWorks UC users to better manage the complexity of subscriber configuration information

LONDON, Mar-17-2017 — /EPR TELECOM NEWS/ — BroadSource Europe Ltd, a specialist global software development and telecommunications engineering company, today announced the launch of EMU SaaS (Software as a Service) platform for its existing and prospective European customers.

EMU, developed by BroadSource, allows global Service Providers, who utilise the BroadWorks™ UC platform, to better manage the day-to-day complexity of subscriber configuration information. EMU is already available in Asia as a SaaS and is now also available for European Service Providers via the EMU SaaS delivery model.

Fifteen years of telco engineering experience, coupled with today’s Cloud delivery technologies means that EMU can now solve Service Provider problems as a Cloud Service across Europe.

Haydn Faltyn, BroadSource co-founder and CEO noted, “We are so pleased to be launching EMU SaaS to our European customers. This technology is unique to the Cloud UC ecosystem. Our customers have been benefitting from EMU operating within their own environment or our Asian point of presence for a number of years now. This next milestone means that our European Service Providers customers can now also benefit from a subscription to EMU SaaS. The power of EMU is solving really practical, everyday problems for our customers and their Cloud UC environments based on BroadWorks™ technology. We are delighted with the feedback so far and excited to have EMU available in Europe

About EMU
EMU is an Extraction, Manipulation and Update (EMU) platform for Cloud UC developed by BroadSource and specialising in the BroadWorks™ platform. With just one click, Service Providers can:

  • EXTRACT every piece of information from their BroadWorks™ environment to audit, analyse or backup customer group configurations
  • MANIPULATE thousands of configuration attributes in seconds, preparing for migrations
  • UPDATE, en masse, configuration settings, saving hundreds of ‘clicks’ and many hours

Our European Customers
Using their own secure BroadWorks™ credentials, Service Providers and their partners can perform one or all of the services hosted within the BroadSource multi-tenanted, fully redundant EMU SaaS instance. EMU now performs many subscriber manipulation tasks that where once thought of as impossible. As Cloud UC subscriptions take over premise PBX numbers, EMU is perfectly positioned to allow the Service Provider to rapidly scale, contain operational costs and simplify the management of large volumes of subscriber configuration data. Service Providers in Europe now have an array of ‘every day use cases’ to better manage their BroadWorks ™ powered Cloud UC platform.

Mobile World Conference 2017: Soracom launches IoT connectivity services in Europe

BARCELONA, Mar-2-2017 — /EPR TELECOM NEWS/ — Soracom announced this week at Mobile World Conference its launch of IoT connectivity services in Europe and confirmed commitment to growing IoT by eliminating the barriers related to security, price, speed-to-value and scalability that currently limit IoT development.

The Internet of things offers endless possibilities. With IoT adoption growing quickly, developers are finding that security and scalability remain key challenges. For start-ups and developers, typical enterprise-grade solutions are out of reach, and more affordable solutions often lack crucial security features.

“We offer low start-up costs, no binding contracts and a flexible pay-as-you-go model for every use case, from garage-level prototyping to massive industrial deployments,” said Parag Mittal, Chief Commercial Officer of Soracom. “We need a sustainable Internet of Things. A smart meter that consumes lot of power for onboard encryption and data transmission to the cloud is not that smart. By reducing power and data consumption on the device side, and delivering a private network as a service for everyone, we ensure a secure, scalable, sustainable ecosystem for IoT.”

“Soracom aims to use its platform to contribute to the overall growth of the IoT industry,” said Ken Tamagawa, Chief Executive Officer of Sorcom. “Current IoT connectivity providers do not really offer secure and swift delivery of services that are affordable and available for everyone in a democratized way. Connecting devices to the internet or the cloud is the easy part. Securing devices and data is the most critical. If it’s on the public internet, it’s hackable. Our customers connect their devices directly to the cloud, using a private network provided by Soracom instead of public internet.”

Widely recognized as one of Japan’s leading IoT technology providers, Soracom uses a unique approach and architecture to provide secure data transfer at lower costs for its global customers and brings this technology to users across all industries. Canon, Konica MinoltaSafecast, Komatsu, Omniflow, and Enerbrain are just a few among the 5,000 clients Soracom connects today.

Soracom’s SIM cards are tailored for IoT devices and can be managed through APIs and a web console that allow convenient, real-time activation/deactivation of SIMs, traffic monitoring, network configuration and visualization, storage and management of data, and many more detailed operations.
