Software innovator EnterpriseWeb earns 3rd prestigious TM Forum Award in 3 years at TMF Live 2016
GLENS FALLS, NY, May 17, 2016 – EnterpriseWeb® (www.enterpriseweb.com), a New York based technology company, which offers an intelligent operations platform that radically simplifies distributed computing, won an award last week at TM Forum’s flagship conference for a collaborative industry project demonstrating Robots-as-a-Service. The latest award extends the Company’s winning streak at TM Forum Live to three years in a row.
The TM Forum (TMF) is a non-profit global industry association focused on the technologies for enabling open digital ecosystems. The annual event, “TM Forum Live”, is one of the largest gatherings of Communication Service Providers (CSPs) and other industries seeking solutions to this latest wave of digital disruption including government, finance and manufacturing sectors. The conference features “Catalyst” projects that foster multi-vendor collaboration to drive innovation. Leading global companies such as Microsoft, IBM and Ericsson participate and each project is championed by one or more service providers.
In 2014, EnterpriseWeb was recognized as “Most Innovative Catalyst”, for its “CloudNFV” project, which demonstrated advanced support for Network Function Virtualization (NFV) and Software-defined Networking (SDN). Last year, EnterpriseWeb won “Most Significant Contribution to TMF’s Frameworx” for “Dynamic APIs”, which demonstrated a model-driven implementation of the industry association’s standards.
This year’s Catalyst project “Smart Industrial Manufacturing” demonstrated the general applicability of TM Forum standards to emerging domains, in this case the Internet-of-Things (IoT), specifically the “remote control” of Robot cells used in Industrial Manufacturing. The project, which won the award for “Best New Catalyst”, was a collaboration between The Welding Institute (TWI), a leading research and training organization specializing in advanced Industrial Manufacturing practices, Infosim, a leading manufacturer of automated Service Fulfillment and Service Assurance solutions and EnterpriseWeb, which provided the automation platform for connecting the partners and coordinating dynamic end-to-end processes.
The Catalyst featured Forum APIs for web-based product specification and ordering, as well as device activation and configuration, showing that their use could be generalized to support Robots-as-a-Service. EnterpriseWeb once again applied its Dynamic APIs approach for model-driven API interoperability and evolution.
While many Communication Service Providers have a history supporting Machine-to-Machine (M2M) interactions for their large Industrial Manufacturing clients, they have generally been static solutions for mass production that are expensive to deploy, maintain and modify. Smart Industrial Manufacturing presented a vision of dynamic manufacturing processes that can cost effectively support low-volume, quick turn, high-value runs. This opens up new markets for CSPs that can offer solutions that improve capital utilization, potentially saving Billions of dollars worldwide in downtime related to physical configuration and maintenance of robots, as well as enabling “mass customization” and facilitating the digital transformation of global manufacturing.
“In this era of disruption, the Forum is actively helping Communication Service Providers explore new opportunities that are emerging from the digitization of business,” stated Joann O’Brien, Vice President, Agile Collaboration for the TM Forum. “It’s wonderful that this team pushed the envelope with Smart Industrial Manufacturing and won the “Best New Catalyst” award.”
“We are honored to be recognized by the Forum again, alongside our new collaborators TWI and Infosim”, noted Dave Duggal, founder and Managing Director of EnterpriseWeb. “The Catalyst program not only promotes innovation, it encourages partnerships and community.”
