Grandstream and Friendly Technologies Announce Successful TR-069 IOT Collaboration

Brookline, MA, December 19, 2012 --(PR.com)-- Service providers can now provision and manage Grandstream’s VoIP phones using Friendly Technologies’ TR-069 device and customer experience management solutions.

Grandstream Networks, a leading manufacturer of IP video and voice telephony solutions, today announced that its Linux-based IP phones successfully completed TR-069 interoperability testing (IOT) with Friendly Technologies’ TR-069 device management solutions. Deployed together, the two product lines provide an answer to broadband service providers, who seek to reduce the time-to-market for launching next-generation services.

Friendly’s solution provides complete and unified service life cycle management for Grandstream IP phones, including Zero Touch provisioning, quick fix and troubleshooting for support centers, and VoIP performance monitoring – all from a centralized web-based console.

Grandstream’s Linux-based IP phones include the GXP11xx, 14xx, and 21xx Series as well as the GXV3175 and GXV3140 IP Multimedia Phones. Grandstream’s IP Phones provide affordability, best-in-class HD audio, a comprehensive set of advanced call features, multi-language support, security protection, simplified management and automated provisioning with TR-069 or HTTPS, advanced XML customization and more. The GXP-series includes over a dozen models to choose from ranging from single line to executive 6-line HD phones with integrated PoE, while the GXV-series IP Multimedia Phones feature HD video, an integrated web browser, and popular applications including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, RSS News Feed, Internet Radio, etc.

Friendly Technologies has completed IOT tests with over 100 device manufacturers. Friendly’s unique Smart Layer technology facilitates the introduction and management of new types of TR-069 devices quickly and automatically, eliminating the need to build customized scripts for each device type.

“We are delighted to complete interoperability certification with Friendly Technologies,” said David Li, CEO of Grandstream. “We believe that reducing Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) is key, and it’s an area where Grandstream has always seen success. Through our new partnership with Friendly’s, we will offer service providers even lower deployment costs.”

In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
"My role is working with customers, helping them go through this digital transformation. I spend a lot of time talking to banks, big industries, manufacturers working through how they are integrating and transforming their IT platforms and moving them forward," explained William Morrish, General Manager Product Sales at Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 18th Cloud Expo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, wh...

In his general session at @ThingsExpo, Roger Woods, Director, Mobile Product & Strategy – Adobe Marketing Cloud, covered key IoT and mobile trends that are forcing mobile transformation, key components of a solid mobile strategy and explored how brands are effectively driving mobile change throughout the enterprise.
In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...
What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...
Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...

What does it look like when you have access to cloud infrastructure and platform under the same roof? Let’s talk about the different layers of Technology as a Service: who cares, what runs where, and how does it all fit together. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Phil Jackson, Lead Technology Evangelist at SoftLayer, an IBM company, spoke about the picture being painted by IBM Cloud and how the tools being crafted can help fill the gaps in your IT infrastructure.
Digital innovation is the next big wave of business transformation based on digital technologies of which IoT and Big Data are key components, For example: Business boundary innovation is a challenge to excavate third-party business value using IoT and BigData, like Nest Business structure innovation may propose re-building business structure from scratch, as Uber does in the taxicab industry The social model innovation is also a big challenge to the new social architecture with the design fr...
Data is an unusual currency; it is not restricted by the same transactional limitations as money or people. In fact, the more that you leverage your data across multiple business use cases, the more valuable it becomes to the organization. And the same can be said about the organization’s analytics. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Bill Schmarzo, CTO for the Big Data Practice at EMC, will introduce a methodology for capturing, enriching and sharing data (and analytics) across the organizati...
