On telecom services

Communication specialists around the world are facing the same problem: shifting from circuit switching to packet switching. Network paradigm shift means the transition from Signal System Seven (SS7) signaling to Internet Protocol (IP). SS7 is a set of protocol standards that controls signaling for the public switched telephone network, allowing mobile carriers around the world to pass information across their networks. The transition to IP assumes that the IP protocol will be the only means of communication between the transport layer and applications. Telecom services evaluation due to the transition from Time-division multiplexing network to IP are considered.

BLE guard

It is a side effect from our experiments with Bluetooth Low Energy tags. See our program BLE guard for Android. You can download it here: http://servletsuite.com/BLECop.apk

The idea of the app is in the continuous scanning (determining of accessibility) for tags and issuing alerts when some changes in the environment are detected. For example, a tag is gone. Or a new tag appears. During the first scan cycle, the app remembers the 'visible’ tags. If during the next consecutive scan any tag is missed, then the application activates the sound alarm and vibration. The typical use cases are:

  • You place the tag in your suitcase. If suitcase is “leaving” you – the phone will notify
  • Your tag is a bracelet (the collar of the animal). If the bearer of the bracelet moves away from the phone – the phone will notify
And so on.

Also, you can specify the phone number that will receive SMS notification with tag’s loss information. This can be used, for example, for such models: the phone is in the car and the scanner will remember the tags around on the parking slot. If your car gets taken away (evacuated), the phone sends an SMS to a specified number.

By default phone number is blank and application uses only beep and vibration.

On Mobile Cloud for Smart City Applications

Manfred Sneps-Sneppe, Dmitry Namiot "On Mobile Cloud for Smart City Applications"

This paper is devoted to mobile cloud services in Smart City projects. As per mobile cloud computing paradigm, the data processing and storage are moved from the mobile device to a cloud. In the same time, Smart City services typically contain a set of applications with data sharing options. Most of the services in Smart Cities are actually mashups combined data from several sources. This means that access to all available data is vital to the services. And the mobile cloud is vital because the mobile terminals are one of the main sources for data gathering. In our work, we discuss criteria for selecting mobile cloud services.
