Asocs http://www.asocstech.com/ … fab-less semiconductor … software-reconfigurable chip targeting multi-protocol, multi-technology convergence handsets. The chip is re-purposed dynamically to work in the most effective way with different kinds of communication: Cellular and wireless, for example. This dynamic configuration allows the chip to exploit different syles of parallelism for the different kinds of communication, resulting in improved battery life and better performance of tasks such as viewing video.
Nexperience http://www.nexperience.com/ … remote access and automatic testing of user experience on handsets. This is targeted at mobile operators, handset vendors, and ISVs who need to test a number of phone types in a number of different networks and countries. Nexperience provodes a cradle and rack system in which multiple phones can be loaded and tested in on one mobile environment, while being monitored centrally. The video and voice interaction with the test script is controlled centrally and all interaction (the image is captured by a camera) is transmitted back to a monitoring server. The test script can evaluate take action based on responses and QoS. Nexperience’s currently targets mobile carriers and the people who build apps for them.
Flash Networks http://www.flashnetworks.com/asp/main.asp .... mobile data quality of experience. Another company (like Amobee) addressing the issue of providing users access to more content across more mobile networks. On handsets, Flash optimizes the viewing experience (ensuring, for example that a YouTube FLV can be viewed on a particular handset, and converting it to another form, if necessary) as well as providing content control. Content can also be customized by the carrier to adapt to the user’s profile. A businessman, for example, may have a BMW ad placed in the stream. Detailed knowledge of the handset (they support about 3,00 user agents today) and the user (inferred from behavioral analysis) is a central element of Flash’s value.
