Webtech Wireless and Cascade Sierra Solutions Announce Program Milestone

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, Jul 12, 2012 (Marketwire via COMTEX) -- Webtech Wireless Inc. (TSX:WEW), a leading provider of vehicle fleet location-based services (LBS) and telematics technology, today announces that its major customer, Cascade Sierra Solutions has achieved a significant milestone in their drive to reduce emissions and idling as part of the Port of LA and the Port of Long Beach Clean Air Initiative.

Jeff Johns, Trucking Manager for Cascade Sierra Solutions, states, "To date, we've deployed more than 1,000 Webtech Wireless units that employ the Quadrant solution to monitor and measure the reduction of idling of the port trucks we've replaced as part of our clean-air efforts in Southern California. Using this tool has given us the ability to more accurately analyze truck location and activity, which is critical to demonstrating the effectiveness of the port programs in the improvement of air quality. In fact, as of 2010, there was 50% less elemental carbon-an indicator of diesel particulate matter-in the nearby town of Wilmington as compared to 2006." "Working with Webtech Wireless," Johns continues, "we've been able to expand to other port projects on the east and west coasts, making the product activation, provisioning, and installation just as seamless as it was on our original project. We provide the same reliable solution installed at any of our locations using Webtech Wireless' Vendor Managed Inventory program." Cascade Sierra Solutions has proactively worked with Webtech Wireless on feature development, which enables them to support their reporting and legislative requirements. Individual trucking companies can use Quadrant un-impeded, using the fleet management and HOS functionality for their particular fleets only. This highlights the highly developed and unique capabilities within Quadrant to build organizational hierarchies, in order to support various organizations different departmental access and reporting needs.

"We are committed to making a difference to the environment and making a difference to the business of managing fleets. That is both the promise and the reality for customers like Cascade Sierra Solutions and their clients," said Scott Edmonds, President and CEO.

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

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.

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

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.
