“Intamac is a company founded and led on technology and service innovation. We believe that the Digital Connected Home market is rapidly expanding, and that maximizing future opportunities will require new thinking and new partnerships, as well as new technology. We are therefore delighted to be involved with the ng Connect Program and to be able to collaborate with, learn from, and develop new ideas with like minded, forward thinking businesses. The initiative is also the perfect platform for us to preview and demonstrate our new capabilities, next generation of applications, products and service solutions to the world,” commented Kevin Meagher, Founder and CEO of Intamac Systems Ltd.
The ng Connect Program is committed to bringing together companies, large and small, that are developing cutting edge technologies and services which will reshape the way people communicate and interact, both online and mobile on-the-go. By helping bring new applications and services to market more quickly, the ng Connect Program will facilitate an expansion of the revenue base for network operators, service providers and others. "Ours is an industry that respects and rewards technology and service innovations. The ng Connect program ecosystem offers a rich playground within which to foster the development of innovative services for next generation networks. The Program enables participants to collaborate in the creation of innovative user experiences that leverage a comprehensive understanding of how end users truly interact with their devices, networks and applications. We're pleased to have Intamac join us and together contribute to the next generation of connected services,” said Derek Kuhn, Vice President of Emerging Technology & Media at Alcatel-Lucent, a founding member of the ng Connect Program.
As global market leader in the connected home market, Intamac has already developed and launched a range of next-generation products and services specifically designed to leverage the value of broadband and provide new recurring revenue streams for established operators and service providers. These new products and services, representing the first in a wave of new bundled monitoring propositions for the home, are available on three continents through blue-chip partners such as British Telecom, IAG, and Bell Canada.
By using open software architecture and API’s to develop their services, Intamac will work with other ng Connect programme members to show how their remote platform can network a range of disparate devices in Consumers’ homes. Intamac will demonstrate how connected IP cameras in a Consumers’ home can live-stream images over the LTE network directly to any IP-connected device via a next generation broadband network. The devices could include mobile phones, TVs, in-vehicle video systems allowing end-users to view events and activity in their property, from anywhere in the world and at any time.
