SKOPJE, Macedonia, July 6, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- This week, Lizard Labs, developer of professional system utilities and software for Microsoft Windows, released a significant update to its flagship software, Ultimate Maps Downloader. Version 2.7 of the software includes support for new map servers (including OpenCycleMap, Bing London Map and Bing UK Ordnance Survey), a new tool for measuring distance, GPX files support and Foursquare integration enhancements, as well as fixes for issues found in previous releases and many improvements to the core components of the application.

About Ultimate Maps Downloader Ultimate Maps Downloader can help you create your own maps. It lets you download maps of specific areas, from around the world, at different zoom levels. You can find road maps, satellite maps and more, powered by Google, Yahoo, Microsoft Bing, OpenStreetMap, OpenCycleMap and other services. All images are then downloaded as small tiles and can be combined into one big map image for offline use. It supports all major image file formats, and can organize collections of tiles in directory-based albums.

When it comes to mapping and views of the world, everyone can find it useful. Users can add markers on the map or simply search for nearest venues from Foursquare. You can place markers that represent airports, attractions, bars, hospitals and much more. These markers have different icons, according to what place they represent. More than 600 POI icons are included in the package. A route will be highlighted automatically if you place a start and an end point on the map. You can export all this information to a GPX file and use it on your smartphone or GPS device.

It also creates ESRI World File for downloaded images for use in professional mapping software like Global Mapper. This makes it an essential tool for mapping professionals who use GIS software.

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.
