Sono-Tek Participates in Nanotechnology Applications Development
Sono-Tek Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: SOTK - News), the world's leader in ultrasonic spray nozzle technology, announced the sale of two ultrasonic spray drying systems. One to the University of Central Florida's Surface Engineering and Nanotechnology Laboratory and a second to NanoBioMagnetics, a developer of nanophase materials for medical applications. The ultrasonic spray dryer utilizes our patented and proprietary SonoDry ultrasonic atomization nozzle system in partnership with the Buchi Spray Dryer to create small drop size particles containing nanometer sized particles from nanophase solutions. Test performed with the SonoDry nozzle installed in the Buchi spray dryer for NanoBioMagnetics have produced a significant level of particles in the 50-100 nm range, and in the 200-600 nm range.
Another application involved the sale of our recently introduced "Widetrack" system to Cardinal Glass and the University of Wisconsin for the application of a nanophase liquid in a thin film coating to allow skyscraper glass to self clean on exposure to sunlight and rain. The Widetrack system uses a flexible array of ultrasonic nozzles to coat moving webs of glass or other wide surfaces in manufacturing lines, but this is the first application involving nanophase liquids and layers.
According to Dr. Coccio, "The Federal Government has now set aside over three billion dollars to fund nanotechnology development, and we are excited about this opportunity to provide our ultrasonic technology to companies pursuing this growing field. We look forward to further participation as the advantages of ultrasonic atomization such as soft, focused, uniform droplets are recognized".

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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
WEBRTC SOLUTIONS PAPERS, SLIDES, COLLATERAL
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.

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.
