Netiquette IQ Post for 6/13/2015 - How the Internet of Things Can Create New Opportunities For Real Time Communications


================================================
How the Internet of Things can create new opportunities for Real Time Communications
The embedding of web-based Real-Time Communications into the Internet of Things will open up new opportunities for businesses and new roles for telcos

Short of time?

With the rise of WebRTC and the Internet of Things (IoT), the way the world communicates is changing dramatically. This ‘webification’ of communications gives rise to the question of what this means for the future of the traditional telco – is the demise of operators now inevitable or can they find an opportunity to claim their slice of what is set to be a very lucrative pie?
WebRTC and IoT today
Heralded by some operators as the most powerful communications tool to date, enthusiasm for WebRTC has grown quickly. Allowing real-time voice and video communications directly through a web browser and eliminating the need for software downloads or plug-ins, WebRTC is most commonly associated with web browsers, and OTT players have been quick to jump on the trend.
As a result, communications has transformed from a telecoms service into an application component within a service, opening up the possibility of embedding WebRTC into verticals such as gaming, eHealth, or even IoT, another trend which is taking the telecoms industry by storm.
IoT refers to all devices – from washing machines and fridges to cars and medical devices – that are connected to the Internet. Like WebRTC, IoT has already begun creating opportunities for developers to change the way people interact with each other and the technology they use, both in the home and business environments.
New assault or golden opportunity?
In terms of how these new technologies will impact on telcos, much debate still exists around the subject. Traditionally, WebRTC was seen by many as a new threat to revenue, just as they were getting over the assault inflicted by the rise of OTT services.
The initial caution from operators is understandable to a point. WebRTC was developed by people who are not a part of the telco environment so exploitation by the OTTs is inevitable.
Furthermore, WebRTC enables the decoupling of communications from operators due to a number of use cases where communications can take place over the top or within silos or closed environments.
This, however, does not necessarily mean that telcos are destined to be a redundant piece of the jigsaw. The reality of the situation is the exact opposite – if operators can act quickly and smartly, they are actually ideally positioned to take advantage of this opportunity thanks to their huge assets in terms of customer base and ability to enable interoperability between the legacy and OTT environment.
How can telcos lead the way?
The question, then, is how do telcos ensure they have a primary role to play in this new ‘webified’ world?
In order to fully answer this question, there are two strands which operators must consider. The first is what is the most valuable, and therefore most lucrative, service they can offer? While some might be tempted to launch their own WebRTC services, providing access to the network to enable the gateway between OTT applications and the legacy network would be a far more worthwhile service – and one that only operators can provide.
In the pure WebRTC environment, for example, if TripAdvisor were to launch an application which enabled visitors to communicate with restaurants or hotels, operators could provide the key to expanding this application so that when consumers make their enquiries through the web, it can be received by restaurants/hotels even when they are not online, for example via phone, thanks to the operator’s bridging of the networks.
Meanwhile, in the IoT or Machine-to-Machine (M2M) scenarios there are opportunities around data processing, assisting people that operate machines and even Smart Glasses where, for example, employees in a stock environment could use the glasses to interact with a guide, making operations more efficient and streamlined.
The second thing which operators need to embrace in order to succeed in this area is software. For the vision of IoT and an entirely connected world to be realised, legacy hardware must be done away with and replaced with software.
This will make networks more agile and enable services to be controlled and adapted without changing the physical layer. This software must be future-proof and lower the cost of future change, with the ability to adapt now being a crucial key performance indicator for telcos.
Providing the gateway between applications and legacy networks is a role that only telcos can fill, creating a clear map of the path they should take as the journey to a completely connected, interoperable world continues. The convergence of WebRTC and IoT certainly holds interesting opportunities for telcos – as long as they can act quick and think smart.
Moving from exploitation to exploration requires a dramatic cultural change, with the ability to develop communication ecosystems and the identification of the reusable assets constituting an appealing accelerator in the transformation towards the digitalised world.

Netiquette IQ Important News Update - D.C. Circuit Denies Stay, Open Internet Rules Become Effective June 12


================================================
Earlier this week, the netizens of the world won a big victory over the major Internet Service Providers. Details are below.
==========================================================

D.C. Circuit Denies Stay, Open Internet Rules Become Effective June 12
By Steve Augustino and Robyn Mohr on June 12, 2015 http://www.commlawmonitor.com/
On June 11, 2015, the D.C. Circuit rejected U.S. Telecom’s request for stay which would have put the Open Internet rules on hold until the court issued a decision on their legality.  However, the court agreed to expedite its proceedings, and is expected to issue a final decision in the case (no. 15-1063) by early next year.
As a result, the Open Internet Order’s (Order) three bright line rules and the new “general conduct” standard will become effective on June 12.  The reclassification of broadband Internet access service (BIAS) as a telecommunications service and the complementary action forbearing from the application and enforcement of sections of Title II of the Communications Act will also become effective on June 12.
Impact for BIAS Providers
The Commission’s three “bright-line rules” prohibiting certain network practices of BIAS providers take effect today. Those provisions are:
·         No blocking. Fixed and mobile BIAS providers may not block access to legal content, applications, services or non-harmful devices, subject to reasonable network management.
·         No throttling. Fixed and mobile BIAS providers may not impair or degrade lawful Internet traffic on the basis of content, applications, services, or non-harmful devices, subject to reasonable network management.
·         No paid prioritization. Fixed and mobile BIAS providers may not favor some lawful Internet traffic over other lawful traffic in exchange for consideration of any kind. The “no paid prioritization” rule bans what are commonly referred to as “Internet fast lanes,” and also prevents ISPs from giving preferential treatment to the content or services of their affiliates. This rule does not have an exception for reasonable network management.
In addition, other BIAS provider actions will be subject to a broad “general conduct” standard.  The Commission will investigate the practices of BIAS providers on a case-by-case basis using the “no unreasonable interference/disadvantage” conduct standard, subject to a multi-factor test.
Further Proceedings
Other aspects of the Order will take effect over a period of months.  First, a number of new requirements are subject to the approval of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB).  These are:
The “Enhanced” Transparency Rule
The Order reinforced the 2010 transparency rule, which was the only rule that the D.C. Circuit upheld in Verizon v. FCC.  While BIAS providers are subject to the 2010 transparency rule now, the enhanced elements will not take effect until approved by OMB.   The Enhanced Transparency will increase the level of disclosures for commercial terms, performance characteristics, and network practices.
The Order temporarily exempts fixed and mobile providers with 100,000 or fewer subscribers from the requirements of the Enhanced Transparency Rule.  The Commission’s Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau (CGB) will determine whether to retain this exemption and must make their decision by December 15, 2015.  If the Bureau fails to act by that date, the temporary exemption will expire.
