COLLEGE GOLF: OC in command after 36 holes at Odessa Invitational

Nov 09, 2012 (Odessa American - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) -- There was no cushion for the Odessa College golf team Thursday in the second round of the Odessa College Invitational.

With a full roster of five players in the first round, the Wranglers were down to four when Cody Taylor fell ill during the first 18 holes of the day.

That meant every score was going to count toward the team score in the afternoon and Odessa College needed to go low to keep a solid lead heading into today's final round.

The Wranglers did just that.

After posting a 4-under-par 284 in the first round, the Wranglers came back with a 2-under 286 over the second 18 to post 570 for the day, giving them a 19-shot lead over Midland College (292-297--589).

"It was a good day," Odessa College coach Paul Chavez said.

Individually, Odessa College's Logan Philley (67-73) and New Mexico Junior College's Elliott Whitley (70-70--140) are tied for first, with the Wranglers' Kyle Gertner sitting in third at 141.

Philley and Gertner will try to keep Odessa College's medalist streak alive as the Wranglers have had the individual champion in each of their first four tournaments.

"The morning round was solid, I really can't complain," Philley said. "In the second round, I started off solid, but kind of hit a speed bump with three straight bogeys (10-11-12).

"We lost our fifth player to illness, so the second round had a little bit more pressure. But, overall, everyone played solid." For Gertner, it was a matter of slow and steady wins the race as he never got on a run -- good or bad -- during the round, instead just finding fairways and greens en route to his third-place standing after 36 holes.

He, too, is looking forward to battling for the top spot in the standings today with his teammate and Whitley.

"I just played solid golf," Gertner said. "I made some bogeys, but came back with some birdies to get back to even or 1-under.

"I birdied No. 4 twice, making a couple long putts on that hole including a 40-footer in the first round. My goal today was to keep it around par or under." Contact Lee Scheide on twitter @OALeeScheide, on Facebook at OA Lee Scheide, or call 432-333-7703.

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.
