Case Studies

Uplink QoE

Uplink QoE is a high-tech, policy based Quality of Service (QoS) solution developed by ThinkPalm Technologies. The project was targeted at providing Quality of Experience (QoE) to selected users in a Wi-Fi basic service set.

Business Need

Our customer aspired for the inclusion of two critical components in the solution - Base QOS and Policy Integration. Base QOS realizes the classification of egress traffic into IEEE 802.11E categories, uniquely identified by the 5-tuple fields. Policy-integration facility at the client side receives the QoE policy pushed from the Access Points.

Solution

A mobile based application was developed to ensure that egress traffic from mobile devices using Wi-Fi connection always followed WMM QoS classification. A policy service responsible for receiving policies issued by authorities and imposing received policies in the egress traffic, was undertaken at the mobile side.

Benefits

Uplink QoE is a breakthrough solution from ThinkPalm due to its capacity to establish an end to end QoS network by extending the existing QoS to end devices such as smartphones. Providing IEEE 802.11e stated real time QoS to mobile stations connected to the Access Points makes it a top-notch solution to look out for!

Comprehensive Travel Application for Tokyo

ThinkPalm developed a comprehensive travel application to help tourists meander along the roads of Tokyo without a hitch! The tourist application, available in five languages, helps visitors spot important locales and guides them with maps along paths with the least traffic congestion.

Business Need

The solution was aimed at addressing a critical pain point of significant internet data being utilized while browsing key tourist attractions. The customer demanded an Android/iOS application capable of saving details within the application to minimize the usage of data communication. The travel app was expected to support five languages namely, Japanese, English, Chinese simplified, Chinese traditional and Korean. Modularity, scalability and smartphone/tablet compatibility were the prerequisites in the design front.

Solution

All screens of the app were implemented using HTML5.0, jQuery and CSS. On the initial launch of the app, the system creates a database with the required tables and information regarding the top tourist destinations in the location will be inserted into the database. The system will then fetch common information labels from the database tables and store it in a local storage for future use.

Benefits

The application differentiates itself from others by storing data locally and thus comes handy to tourists who like to keep data usage minimal while on the move. It’s ability to support five different languages makes it comprehensible by a significant number of travelers across the globe. Specific information on traffic bottlenecks and accuracy of the locations displayed make the app a favourite among travelers!

IPv6 Support on PSOS

ThinkPalm took up the challenge of developing the IPv6 stack on a PSOS operating system that solely supported IPv4, leveraging NAT64, NDP and ALG technologies.

Business Need

In today’s networking world where IPv6 support is proving to be mandatory for the management of network equipments, IPv6 support in the devices purchased is a prerequisite for a significant customer segment. Our end customer’s network termination unit supported IPv4 alone, limiting its management by no more than IPv4 networks. ThinkPalm aimed at upgrading the currently deployed network from IPv4 to IPv6, without tampering with the existing infrastructure.

Solution

The IPv4 stack interface was modified to accommodate NAT64, a mechanism allowing a node in an IPv6 network to communicate with a node in an IPv4 network and vice versa. A NAT64 translator was employed to translate IPv4 addresses into the equivalent IPv6 addresses and reverse. NAT64 implementation was accompanied by Neighbor discovery protocol (NDP), ALG and Path MTU Discovery incorporation.

Benefits

ThinkPalm made it possible for the telecom major to operate their devices with both IPv6 and IPv4 networks. The achievement is in tandem with absolutely nil alterations in the existing application software and application level protocols for supporting IPv6. The devices continue operating as IPv4 devices, switch smoothly between IPv4 and IPv6 modes, saving time in software development and testing.

PowerPoint Viewer

Power Point Viewer application realizes the visualization of PowerPoint presentations on Android devices and supports wide-ranging PowerPoint elements. With the Key event control feature, slides can be shared with Android devices within an internal network and controlled from a remote location.

Business Need

PowerPoint Viewers help in viewing PowerPoint files in systems that do not have Microsoft PowerPoint installed. Support for extensive PowerPoint features such as text, images, animations, slide transitions, charts, tables, video and audio coupled with the capability of remote sharing, make it a desirable solution in the market. ThinkPalm stays one step ahead by offering a PowerPoint player, rather than a simple slide viewer.

Solution

The solution, with three modules, displays a PPT by parsing the contents of XML files obtained by unzipping .PPTX file. The first module extracts the input PPTX file to XML format and places the XML files in a folder structure. The second module parses the XML files and collects information from them. Collection of information from the data structure and display as a PPT is by the third module.

Benefits

ThinkPalm PowerPoint Viewer enables users to view audios, videos, slide animations, transitions and more in PowerPoint presentations from a list of PPTX files saved on Android Devices. Key event control feature enabling PPTX files to be sent to a device and slides to be viewed and controlled remotely, is a key value-add to the solution.
