This helpdesk will perform the services of Islamic financial product development, research, technical assistance, training & education and Shariah. Mr. Zubair Mughal (CEO) Alhuda CIBE said, Islamic Micro-finance is the most effective tool for the poverty alleviation from the society. He also said that Islamic Micro-finance is not only to reduce the poverty but also generate a pleasant change in the society and it will provide the better living standards for the poor.

Through Islamic Micro-finance, necessary goods, equipment and machinery is provided to the clients instead of just money lending to run up the business at micro level. The 40% population of Pakistan is living below the poverty line and the indicator is still positive day by day, it is very important for us to control the rising indicator of poverty and I recommend that Islamic Micro-finance is the most effective tool to achieve the goals.

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.

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.
