Packet Design to Present Session on 'Making Networks Safe for VoIP' at INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference & EXPO Fall 2005

PALO ALTO, Calif., September 22, 2005 — "Making the Network Safe for VoIP" will be the topic of a session to be presented by Alex-Henthorn-Iwane, senior director of marketing at Packet Design, Inc., on October 27 during TMC’s INTERNET TELEPHONY® Conference & EXPO Fall 2005 at the Los Angeles, Calif., Convention Center.
"Voice over Internet technology holds great promise for enterprises, service providers and consumers, but its quality and reliability are still at issue," Henthorn-Iwane said.  "This session will focus on the routing-related issues that can wreak havoc with VoIP delivery, and the use of an emerging technology known as route analytics to ensure a highly predictable, reliable and stable IP network as the basis for successful VoIP deployments."
 “We are very pleased that Mr. Henthorn-Iwane will be participating in this year’s show.  Packet Design is widely respected as a pioneer and industry leader in route analytics technology, and I am confident that our attendees will value the opportunity to hear his perspective on IP infrastructure requirements for effective VoIP delivery,” said TMC president and conference co-chair Rich Tehrani.  “Over the past year, widespread adoption of VoIP by global service providers, businesses and governments has reinforced that this exciting technology is a viable, cost-effective communications solution.  As a result, we are seeing a significant number of senior-level executives attending INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference & EXPO as a means of learning about the technology so they too can take advantage of its benefits.”
INTERNET TELEPHONY® Conference & EXPO is the world’s largest and best-attended VoIP trade show.  Last February the show drew over 6,200 buyers and sellers of VoIP products and services to Miami.  For this upcoming October show, TMC projects total attendance to exceed 7,500.  Anyone interested may register at http://www.itexpo.com. Limited booth space is still available as well.  Vendors interested in exhibiting at the show should contact Dave Rodriguez at 1-203-852-6800, ext. 146, or at drodriguez@tmcnet.com.

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.

Featured Whitepapers

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.
