Ericsson is a world-leading provider of telecommunications equipment and services to mobile and fixed network operators.


Abiro added support for Compact PDF417 to an existing Android application used for signing off delivered base stations. The support was added to Zxing (an open-source library for barcode reading), and enhancements were also made to the application in terms of handling of the lamp of the phone, interpreting the data read etc.

Contact was established with Sean Owen, one of the leads for Zxing, to verify the status of the existing support of PDF417 in Zxing.

Abiro also extablished a dialogue with I-nigma as a possible replacement for Zxing and as a preparation for an iPhone application.

The assignment was handled via Netville AB.

The project was made during two weeks in Q1 2012.
