Dublin, USA/Jena, Germany (November 18, 2005) - Carl Zeiss Meditec, Inc., a leader in ophthalmic devices and systems, today announced the VISUCAMPRO NM non-mydriatic fundus camera for retinal imaging was granted 510(k) clearance by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Building on Zeiss' reputation for quality optics and innovation, VISUCAMPRO NM enables practitioners to capture high-resolution, digital images of the retina and posterior segment of the eye through the smallest pupil size in the industry (3.3 millimeters compared to the competitors' 3.7 millimeters). This eliminates the need to dilate the pupil prior to testing. Additionally, the technology captures high-resolution images at 30- and 45- degree field angles allowing for early documentation of such conditions as diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and glaucoma. "Zeiss' goal is to provide products that benefit clinicians and patients by improving outcomes, reducing costs and improving the quality of care throughout the ophthalmology industry," said Jim Taylor, president and chief executive officer of Carl Zeiss Meditec, Inc. "The VISUCAMPRO NM accomplishes this goal by providing the most advanced fundus imaging available in the industry to document retinal pathology." Unlike other non-mydriatic fundus cameras on the market, VISUCAMPRO NM is an all-in-one unit without the need for external wires or peripheral cameras. The unit includes a 17-inch flat panel monitor, which can be easily rotated for patient education. The industrial-grade internal digital sensor requires no maintenance, keeping the optical path free of dust or other artifacts. The VISUCAMPRO NM is based on Microsoft Windows XP and is fully networkable, increasing practitioner workflow and efficiency, while allowing for easy export in a variety of formats.

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.
