Fraunhofer FOKUS sets up a new technology partnership in Malaysia

27.03.2009
Fraunhofer FOKUS collaborates with MIMOS on Research and Development in IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) technologies and also to promote the OpenFMC lab as IMS Center of Excellence (CoE) for SIP/IMS based applications development.

A Memorandum of Understanding was signed in Kuala Lumpur recently to formalise the partnership.

Berlin-based Fraunhofer Institute for Open Communication Systems (FOKUS) and MIMOS recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for a research and development collaboration in IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) with an ultimate aim to deliver new application components for local and international markets.

Berlin-based Fraunhofer Institute for Open Communication Systems (FOKUS) and MIMOS recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for a research and development collaboration in IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) with an ultimate aim to deliver new application components for local and international markets.

It is also the objective of the collaboration where FOKUS would serve as one of MIMOS advisors on driving and facilitating IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) / Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) application and content developments through the establishment of a CoE in MIMOS OpenFMC lab. MIMOS OpenFMC lab serves as the platform where developers, content providers, operators and service providers could collaborate, exchange ideas, develop, test, promote and exhibit innovative technologies and applications.

IMS is an architectural framework that allows Internet Protocol (IP) multimedia services, such as Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), to seamlessly switch between networks. IMS also enables the convergence of fixed, mobile and internet networks.

"So with IMS, users can start VoIP at home connecting to WiFi, then switch seamlessly to WiMAX while driving to the office, and later switch to the desktop and upgrade it into a video call on an LCD screen," said Dr Mazlan Abbas, Head of Wireless Communications Cluster, MIMOS.

"MIMOS' focus on IMS is in line with our initiatives aimed at bridging the digital divide as IMS enables different networks to be seamlessly interoperable regardless of the underlying technologies," added Dr Mazlan.

Under the MoU, MIMOS will work closely with FOKUS to build and enhance IMS capabilities among Malaysians and spur local IMS/SIP applications with the ultimate aim of nurturing domain experts.

About MIMOS
MIMOS is the premier applied research centre in frontier technologies aimed at growing globally competitive indigenous industries. MIMOS pursues exploratory and industry-driven applied research through multi-stakeholder smart partnerships with local and international universities, research institutes and industries and the Malaysia Government with a focus on frontier technologies.

MIMOS' applied research / technology areas are refined into eight (8) technology clusters - Knowledge Grid, Knowledge Technology, Information Security, Wireless Communications, MEMS, Advanced Informatics, Micro Energy and Nano Clusters.

MIMOS' focus is on driving globally recognized Centres of Excellence to promote and license MIMOS technologies or IPs to qualified indigenous ICT companies to strengthen their abilities to compete globally and move Malaysian ICT industry higher up the value chain. MIMOS is the recipient of the Asia HRD Congress 2008 Award under the 'Contribution to the Organisation' category for outstanding contribution to the field of Human Resource Development and the Frost & Sullivan's Growth Excellence Award 2007 for Industry Innovation & Advancement (Precision Agriculture) for its application and development of Micro Electro Mechanical System (MEMS) in the field of precision agriculture.

About Fraunhofer FOKUS
The Fraunhofer Institute for Open Communication Systems (FOKUS) in Berlin, Germany has been researching and developing communication and integration solutions for international partners in industry, research and public administration in the fields of software development, telecommunications, automotive engineering, and eGovernment for more than 20 years.

Researchers from the FOKUS competence center Next Generation Network Infrastructures (NGNI) have become internationally recognized. as Next Generation Network (NGN) test bed experts.

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...

Im Focus: Fraunhofer ISE Develops Highly Compact, High Frequency DC/DC Converter for Aviation

The efficiency of power electronic systems is not solely dependent on electrical efficiency but also on weight, for example, in mobile systems. When the weight of relevant components and devices in airplanes, for instance, is reduced, fuel savings can be achieved and correspondingly greenhouse gas emissions decreased. New materials and components based on gallium nitride (GaN) can help to reduce weight and increase the efficiency. With these new materials, power electronic switches can be operated at higher switching frequency, resulting in higher power density and lower material costs.

Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE together with partners have investigated how these materials can be used to make power...
