INVENTEL, a leading specialist in wireless communication solutions, announces the introduction of new generation WiFi/DECT/VoIP wireless ADSL gateways for the residential market. Enabling both data and voice transmission, these units are a platform for multimedia services. INVENTEL's home gateway features an ADSL modem router to share the high-speed broadband connection. It integrates wireless technologies including 802.11g and DECT (Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications) for wireless voice and data communication.

This residential platform centralizes all home wireless communications. With its sleek and innovative design, it is no longer hidden behind the PC, but finds its place among everyday household electronic devices. Set up is easy and straightforward with a multimedia installation package that features video tutorials. The gateway's configuration is managed through a user-friendly interface and updates can be downloaded directly from the web. Wireless security is ensured at several levels, including the implementation of the WPA (WiFi Protected Access) protocol. The home network is protected by a fully configurable firewall.

In addition to data transfer, Inventel's home gateway offers all types of wireless services, using either Voice over IP communication (VoIP) or the switched network. VoIP wireless services are, in particular, available for standard analog telephones that can be connected to the gateway. Wireless technology (DECT) combined with a broadband network brings out the full potential of VoIP services: each household member can have a handset linked to his or her private line.

Depending on the version, the gateway can provide full connectivity to communicate with all current communication and entertainment devices including TVs, set-top boxes, hi-fi audio systems, and digital cameras.

The unit counts four Ethernet ports and one USB port for fixed connectivity, a PCMCIA port to easily add a video extension, as well as a master USB to connect a printer or digital camera directly without going through a PC. INVENTEL's gateway is a great opportunity for Service Providers to increase revenue by offering value-added services over the fixed broadband network beyond PCs.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
