Also in today's EMEA regional roundup: Ericsson virtualizes video processing; Swisscom promotes mobile multi-tasking; OBS goes into the fitting room.
It lets subscribers use their mobile line on up to three devices at the same time with the same phone number, on a combination of smartphones, tablets or smartwatches with SIM cards, for instance. All three devices remain online always everywhere. Calls ring out on all devices – customers can take them on any device they like. They can also make calls while surfing on a tablet with their smartwatch still connected to the Internet. Multi Device sets Swisscom apart from the crowd as comparable products do not support same-time use. Swisscom also takes an innovative approach to setup: once inserted, the SIM card automatically launches the activation dialogue in the browser and seconds later the second or third device is online.
Swisscom doesn't mention if this is safe to do whilst operating heavy machinery.
