In a famous scene, Kinsella is walking in his backyard when he hears a mysterious voice call out, "if you build it, they wil come." ...

With a trillion dollar deficit and the national debt at a record $16.2 trillion, federal funding for Amtrak has been targeted by many for elimination. Based on the company's track record, it is hard to justify continued taxpayer support ...

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.
