T-Mobile Strengthens Support for Government Agencies With Mobile Communications Solution

BELLEVUE, Wash. & TAMPA, Fla. --(Business Wire)--

Today at LandWarNet, T-Mobile (News - Alert) USA, Inc. introduced Persistent Communication Solutions by T-Mobile, a mobile telecommunications solution to support government entities' Continuity of Operations (CooP) efforts. As another step in the company's commitment to government customers, the solution lets first responders stay connected during an emergency from the same phone they use every day without having to switch to a different device, even when commercial wireless networks are out of service. The solution also enables wireless communication in remote areas where no commercial networks exist.

Persistent Communication Solutions by T-Mobile is powered by T-Mobile's Wi-Fi Calling for Government technology, which allows voice and data communications on an employee's device in areas where macro networks are down, such as during a natural disaster. T-Mobile government customers are able to leverage Persistent Communication Solutions by T-Mobile on devices capable of Wi-Fi Calling and can tailor the solution to their specific needs. T-Mobile will demonstrate the solution at Booth 1511 during LandWarNet, August 23 - 25, 2011.

"With Persistent Communication Solutions by T-Mobile, we are able to offer improved mobile connectivity in emergency situations," said Tom Casey, federal market business development manager at T-Mobile USA. "T-Mobile's Wi-Fi Calling for Government technology, cobined with commercial satellite service and tracking resources, enables continued business operations that are more reliable, even under challenging circumstances."

Persistent Communication Solutions by T-Mobile provides the following benefits to government customers:

  • Ability to operate quickly on secure, deployable 802.11Wi-Fi networks.
  • Access to a commercial satellite service for back-haul connectivity, if necessary and available.
  • A full suite of partner technology services to help emergency response agencies coordinate communication and track responders while vital equipment can be added to new or existing systems.
  • Critical personnel and resource tracking presented on a dashboard for use by incident commanders.
  • Integration of most mapping and software devices, and interoperability between LMRs, cell and other systems is available.
  • Training and installation assistance from T-Mobile and its partners.

In addition to Persistent Communication by T-Mobile, T-Mobile will refresh and expand its government website within T-Mobile.com on August 25, 2011, to help the company's current and new government customers easily find the right plans, products and solutions to fit their organization's needs.

T-Mobile and its partners work together to provide government-grade security for T-Mobile's network, Wi-Fi hotspots and devices via security algorithms, encryption keys, IPSec VPN tunnels and more.

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.
