- und daher habe ich mir nach dem Einstieg bei Alibaba, die inzwischem mehr als 20% gut gemacht haben, auch einige Rakutens gekauft.

Look Out Amazon, Here Comes...Rakuten?
Japanese e-commerce firm Rakuten announced on Tuesday it is acquiring Ebates for $1 billion.

The acquisition, which Rakuten hinted at last week, is part of the Japanese company’s push to grow its base beyond its domestic market and hopefully, become a global player. Having made some $1.2 billion acquisitions to date along these lines, this is Rakuten’s most ambitious move to date.

However, investors are dubious that the company can absorb yet another foreign acquisition, much less one the size of Ebates, despite Rakuten’s strong cash position.
Then there is the ever-present Amazon, which dominates the e-commerce market in the U.S. Few believe it will falter in the face of Chinese giant Alibaba, much less a Rakuten-Ebates combo.

Rakuten Goes Forth

Not surprisingly, Rakuten says it is undaunted. For starters, it has assembled a very interesting mix of acquisitions. There is messaging app Viber, which it purchased for $900 million in February, the Canadian ebook offering Kobo, Spanish video service Wuaki.tv, Viki, a digital content platform and Buy.com.
Now it has picked up Ebates.

Kobo Writing Life Adds Cost-Per-Circulation Model Option for the OverDrive Library Borrowing System

MAY 27, 2020

New Addition: Through the CPC Model, OverDrive distribution outlets will pay the self-published author each time an eBook is checked out by a customer (“CPC price”). The CPC price is 10 percent of the OCOU eBook price, with a minimum price of $0.99 USD. As with OCOU, multiple customers may check out the title at the same time.

“We are delighted to be able to introduce a new way for Kobo Writing Life authors to reach library readers. We believe in allowing authors to reach readers, however they’d like to read. This exciting new opportunity helps KWL authors further diversify their publishing portfolio and makes it easy for librarians to find and take a chance on new, talented authors,” said Tara Cremin, Senior Manager, Author Experience, Kobo Writing Life.

USA Today bestselling author Penny Reid said: “Libraries are essential for book discovery, now more than ever.”

A huge untapped opportunity yet to be realised  

As a result of consumers staying at home, people’s interactions with brands have changed; consumers are looking for brands to communicate authentically at this time.  

A key driver of this attitude is that many consumers’ financial situations have been affected dramatically by the pandemic (35%). Consumers believe the brands that emotionally understand their customers are the ones that will have success after the crisis (26%).  

Some 45% of UK respondents say ads that are funny, engaging, or entertaining will increase their likeliness of using an AVOD service, while 28% of respondents said relevant ads based on individual viewing habits or shopping behaviour will encourage their decision to use the AVOD service.

Anthony Capano, comments, “With over 50% of people globally watching more streaming services, we can create a sense of escapism through entertainment. Brands have the opportunity to be part of this great content and connect with consumers via AVOD platforms at this time.

“Advertising alongside content that captivates people’s attention can help brands build positive relationships with consumers. Whether it’s demonstrating empathy or showing support to local communities, brands can use advertising to demonstrate responsibility.”

The reality of our situation in the “new normal”

Capano concludes, “The change to our daily routines, workspaces and connections with those we hold dearest calls now more than ever for global kindness. Consumers are looking for brands to be considerate and caring, both as employers and in how they treat their customers.  

“Consumers are also looking for video content without wanting to sacrifice the viewing experience to irrelevant or insensitive ads. As long as the messaging of advertising strikes the right tone, AVOD helps brands successfully meet people’s need for escapism during challenging times and creates a new way to engage with audiences.”

Modernize with a virtualized radio access network from Red Hat and Altiostar

To remain competitive, communications service providers (CSPs) must modernize their infrastructure. Radio access networks (RANs) are one of the most expensive mobile network elements and are often the source of performance problems that affect customer experience. As an alternative to proprietary, hardware-based solutions, Red Hat and Altiostar offer a virtualized RAN (vRAN) solution that can help CSPs deliver more customer value, reduce network costs, and prepare for future growth and uncertainty.

Prepare for 5G networks Modernize your radio access network with Red Hat and Altiostar

Relentless demand for mobile broadband
Demand for mobile bandwidth continues to grow as customers access new services and applications. To remain competitive, telecommunications companies must cost-effectively expand their network while also improving user experience. Radio access networks (RANs) are an expensive element in mobile networks. They often require specialized hardware that can be difficult to upgrade and scale. As a result, RANs often become a source of performance problems that affect customer experience. Red Hat and Altiostar offer a virtualized RAN (vRAN) solution that addresses these issues to help you deliver more customer value, reduce capital and operational costs, and prepare for the future.

Modernize and virtualize your radio access network
The Red Hat® and Altiostar solution delivers full RAN functionality using network functions virtualization (NFV) infrastructure from Red Hat and RAN technology from Altiostar. This approach decouples baseband functions from the underlying hardware and creates a software fabric that spans both Long-Term Evolution (LTE) and 5G networks. Within the solution architecture, virtualized baseband units (vBBU) process and dynamically allocate resources to remote radio units (RRUs) based on the current network needs. Baseband functions are split between central units (CUs) and distributed units (DUs) that can be deployed in aggregation centers or in central offices using a distributed architecture.

Reduce costs through network flexibility
Cost control and business efficiency are key concerns for telecommunications companies. The Red Hat and Altiostar solution can help your business manage expenses and increase efficiency using a flexible network architecture. With an open source, industry-standard foundation, you can choose the hardware that best fits your needs and budget. Flexible component connectivity lets you use both existing and new transport networks to maximize the return on existing investments and reduce new capital expenditures. Additionally, a virtualized deployment approach reduces operational expenses.

The company has now converted 11 of its stores into areas for preparing online orders and hired an additional 1000 people as pickers and delivery drivers. The stores are located in Madrid, Barcelona, Seville, Malaga and Cadiz.

DIA is also working with Glovo, the on-demand courier app, to add a new channel for distributing orders. The service will be available either through DIA’s site or Glovo’s app. Customers simply place the order and a personal shopper picks it up from the store and delivers.

It’s a network architecture that costs 40% less than traditional telecommunication infrastructure and the savings on opex are even better, according to CTO Tareq Amin. The operator is passing some of those savings on to customers in the form of a $28 monthly subscription for unlimited data, voice, and messaging services.

Rakuten Mobile’s successful launch also serves as a clarion call for the wireless industry, proving that there are indeed new and more efficient ways to assemble networks. Virtualization, open RAN, and cloud-native architectures have been demonstrably beneficial for many years, but this is the first time an entire network has been designed from the ground up riding exclusively on those technologies.

Industry observers and competitors that were skeptical of the company’s approach have been largely silenced. However, Rakuten Mobile isn’t completely free from legacy equipment vendors and traditional technology. It is still using technology and hardware from industry stalwarts. Equipment, software, and services from Airspan, Altiostar, Cisco, Intel, Mavenir, NEC, Nokia, Red Hat, and Qualcomm all play a role in Rakuten Mobile’s network.

Lyft admitted that it gave 70% fewer rides in May than it did in the same month last year, but said that rides increased 26% from April and were performing better in cities that have begun relaxing restrictions. "For example, rideshare rides increased 73% in Austin, 41% in Denver, 54% in Las Vegas, 59% in Miami, 64% in Nashville, 42% in New York City, 40% in Phoenix, 49% in Salt Lake City and 40% in Seattle in the month of May 2020 versus the month of April 2020," Lyft disclosed in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. In response, Lyft said that adjusted Ebitda losses would not exceed $325 million, about 10% better than the maximum $360 million in highly adjusted losses the company predicted when it released quarterly earnings in early May.

Summary

Rakuten is now officially the 4th telecom operator in Japan after SoftBank, NTT, and KDDI.

As a new entrant with no legacy debt, it has a competitive advantage, which allows leveraging the latest cloud-based virtual network technology from the start.

Rakuten has partnered with KDDI to launch an offering at 50% cheaper price than SoftBank and NTT. KDDI has a bleeding market share and will be very incentivized to win.

At 1x P/S, Rakuten is an attractive buy. The stock has received a lot of pressure in the last few years, potentially due to the volatile profit margins and perception of over-expansion.

Rakuten is still the largest eCommerce player in Japan by far. Core business still grows at +18%, while it also has enough scale and capital to enter virtually any market.

Malaysia will double online trading limits this year as the rush of small investors into stocks helped push the market into bull territory.

The Securities Commission will allow up to 100,000 ringgit ($23,500) daily online settlement in the second half, from the current limit of 30,000 to 50,000 ringgit, Executive Chairman Syed Zaid Albar said in an emailed response to questions.

The benchmark FTSE Bursa Malaysia KLCI Index has risen more than 20% from a low in March, led mainly by glove makers, with trading volume hitting a record 11 billion shares. Individual investors are finding more time to flock into stocks from their homes amid a nationwide lockdown, spurred on by relatively cheap stocks amid low interest rates.

Malaysians’ renewed interest in online trading has also helped a local unit of Rakuten Securities Inc. turn profitable in April since opening in 2017, said Kaoru Arai, managing director of Rakuten Trade. The online brokerage, a joint venture between Rakuten and Kenanga Investment Bank Bhd., now has more than 1 billion ringgit of client assets under trust, he added.

Peep under the hood of Rakuten Mobile’s new network in Japan and you’ll find one of the biggest names in the global computing industry. As well as being inside many of the world’s PCs and servers, Intel technology is pivotal to enabling the cloud-based automation that underpins Rakuten’s innovative approach to providing cellular service using cloud.

To help it harness the cloud technologies that have revolutionized the computing industry, Rakuten Mobile is deploying Intel processors and field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) across its network. “Our silicon is in the radio access network (RAN), the base stations, in the remote radio heads, in the 5G ready mobile core — all in centralized and edge telco clouds: Intel technology has created an end-to-end foundation for this innovative infrastructure,” says Caroline Chan, vice president and general manager of Intel’s Network Business Incubator Division.

For example, the data centers in the heart of Rakuten Mobile’s fully virtualized network are equipped with servers that use Intel’s high-performance Xeon processors, and are supported by Intel’s FPGAs to achieve accelerated radio performance. Rakuten Mobile is also using Intel technology in its edge data centers, which are designed to provide very rapid response times for applications and rich media content. These standards-based edge servers are powerful enough to provide Rakuten Mobile’s customers with immersive experiences, such as video streams of live sport and other entertainment in high definition, while also supporting all edge computing applications, including online gaming and OTT (over-the-top).

“The real difference is that this network was built with edge services in mind from the ground-up, rather than as an afterthought,” explains Chan. “It is more service-orientated.  It will provide a multi-sensory experience for consumers that goes above and beyond the traditional KPIs (key performance indicators).”

its underlying network platform to other operators, governments and enterprises in Japan and elsewhere

MIKE DANO, Editorial Director, 5G & Mobile Strategies
6/2/2020

Japan's Rakuten said NEC – a fellow Japanese company – will supply its 5G core. The news is notable considering Rakuten is widely regarded as being on the forefront of the industry's move toward virtualized, cloud-native, open wireless networks, and therefore its vendor selections represent an important signal to the wider industry.

And Rakuten's selection of NEC as its 5G core supplier means that the Japanese vendor will power the "brains" of Rakuten's 5G network. The 5G core will run everything from network slicing to edge computing, a situation that has attracted a wide range of vendors – including Microsoft, Huawei, Oracle, Cisco and Ericsson – to the 5G core market.

Further, Rakuten has made no secret about its plans to sell its underlying network platform to other operators, governments and enterprises in Japan and elsewhere, and so the vendors it works with on its Japanese wireless network will therefore likely be included in those international efforts as well.
NEC is one of a wide range of upstart vendors powering Rakuten's mobile network in Japan; other vendors include Allot, Ciena, Cisco, Innoeye, Intel, Mavenir, Netcracker, OKI, Qualcomm, Quanta, Red Hat, Tech Mahindra and Viavi. In terms of the 4G network that Rakuten launched in April, Nokia supplies the radios and Altiostar supplies the open RAN management software. For the 5G network that Rakuten plans to launch in September, NEC will supply the 3.8GHz MIMO radios, Airspan will provide the 28GHz radios, and Altiostar will supply the Open RAN management software.
