Stockholm, Sweden, February 11, 2011 – Yanzi Networks AB, a Swedish high-tech start-up, will showcase its high performance M2M solution in the Ericsson booth in GSMA's Embedded Mobile House at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, February 14-17, 2011. The demonstration includes several real customer applications with streaming video and sensor data over the 3G/4G wireless Internet. The customer showcases include a grocery store and a cattle farm in Sweden. Temperature sensors, motion detectors, and video cameras are securely connected to the Yanzi cloud servers, and real-time data is displayed either in a smart phone or a PC/tablet/iPad at the show.
Yanzi will announce its second generation remote access server utilizing an Intel® Atom™ processor and an Ericsson wireless broadband module.
The evolution of Internet, moving to network connected devices without human intervention, is developing fast. In the next decade, the number of connected objects globally is expected to reach 20 to 50 billion, an order of magnitude larger than in today’s mobile networks. This represents a phenomenal business opportunity for carriers and service providers. To enable communication, ranging from simple best-effort data to real-time video streams over the Internet, Yanzi has developed a scalable server platform that interconnects and manages different devices in a fully automatic way. A smart and user-friendly interface, either via the web or a smart phone, enables an end user to maintain overview and control, regardless of location.
“Yanzi provides a leading edge solution with a focus to address this business opportunity for carriers. With the Intel® Atom™ processor, Yanzi has the foundation for secure, high performance, low power, cost efficient video processing required in next generation M2M applications. The combination of the Yanzi solution running on this processor and the high speed mobile broadband module from Ericsson creates a foundation for carriers to provide new service offerings.” says Lars Ramfelt, CEO and Founder of Yanzi networks AB.
“Using the capability and performance of Intel® Atom™ processors in combination with Ericsson’s F5521gw mobile broadband modules, Yanzi Networks’ remote control and monitoring solution provides the telecom industry with a platform that enables next generation smart services and numerous business opportunities beyond bandwidth. The solution is a great showcase for Intel's and Ericsson's new M2M Developer Kit” says Kevin D. Johnson, director of Connected Devices, Embedded and Communications Group, Intel Corporation.
Mats Norin, Head of Mobile Broadband Modules at Ericsson, says: “Ericsson's cooperation with Intel leads to benefits throughout the M2M value chain, contributing to our vision of 50 billion connected devices by 2020. An impressive example, of what these billions of connections can enable, is Yanzi Networks' remote control- and monitoring solution. That is why we are working with Yanzi to showcase the capabilities of Intel's and Ericsson's new M2M Developer Kit, in the GSMA Embedded Mobile House at Mobile World Congress.”.
