Feb 26, 2012 (Standard-Examiner - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) -- Registering cats not required in Clearfield CLEARFIELD -- Changes to the animal control ordinance make it clear that registering a cat in this city is optional.

The city council recently approved amending its animal control ordinance after the Davis County animal control ordinance was amended, stating that licensing cats is now a requirement.

Though the city has generally modeled its own ordinance after the county's, officials wanted to opt out of that change.

According to the ordinance, the city wanted the requirement to be optional to residents and have the ordinance reflect that desire.

"Since Davis County performs animal control for Clearfield, we have adopted their ordinance by reference, except that we have a different restriction on the total number of dogs and cats that is allowed," said City Manager Adam Lenhard.

"Our council felt that cat licensing should be left to the discretion of the animal owners." Clearfield allows a combination of dogs and cats up to three animals, though no combination can include more than two dogs.

The council simply approved adding a clarification stating that licensing of cats is not required.

This was a unanimous city council decision.

Changes are effective immediately.

Council seeking overpayment refund MORGAN -- The Morgan County Council believes the county has overpaid more than $4,000 to a local architect and plans to seek a refund.

"We owe it to the taxpayers to ask for a refund," said Councilman Don Mathews.

In the wake of terminating the former council administrator and welcoming several new council members, the council voted to scrap plans to construct an animal control building.

In the meantime, the county had already incurred architecture and design costs.

Design West recently sent the county a bill that included a termination fee.

Councilman Ronda Kippen said the county has already paid the firm $28,474.

Based on percentages of the proposed project cost, Kippen and Councilman Robert Kilmer said the county should have paid the firm only $24,130.

"We have overpaid them," Kippen said.

"We feel according to the original contract, we have overpaid Design West for their services," Kilmer said.

Davis Youth Summit announces speaker LAYTON -- A speaker with Rachel's Challenge, a group associated with Rachel Scott, who was killed at Columbine High School in 1999, will highlight the seventh annual Davis Youth Summit.

The summit, for those between the ages of 13 and 18, will be from 1 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. March 17 at Northridge High School.

Registration is $10 per person before March 2, $15 following that date.

The purpose of the summit is to provide a constructive, safe event for Davis teens to learn many prevention, safety and self-help skills, said Karlene Kidman, Layton Communities That Care coordinator.

The summit also provides teens with the opportunity to engage in community service and is a positive environment for the teens to network, Kidman said.

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.
