RF Code Announces Proximity Locator Solution

AUSTIN, Texas --(Business Wire)--

RF Code, a leading provider of asset management and wire-free environmental monitoring solutions, today announced a first-of-its kind Proximity solution that provides an additional layer of security for a company's critical assets. The new solution provides a completely automated method of correlating personnel location and event occurrence within restricted areas, such as cages in a data center that house servers running transactional data. In this case, the RF Code solution becomes a key part of a company's PCI (News - Alert) infrastructure compliance efforts.

The solution's ability to correlate what moved with who moved it gives companies the controls they need to fully account for their critical mobile assets-from healthcare and IT equipment to warehoused inventory and more. Such information is useful to identify a limitless range of unauthorized activity, from who's using what particular piece of equipment that someone else may need to determining the presence of unauthorized personnel in "off limit" areas to discovering the presence of someone sneaking into a facility behind a "badged" employee.

"It's not about watching. It's about protection," said Richard Jenkins, RF Code, Vice President, Marketing. "The proximity solution is essentially an asset 'audit trail,' giving you an added layer of security about what, where and how your critical assets are. We like to ask our customers if they can tell us: What is it Where is it How is it We're thrilled to have just added an additional question: Who has it With RF Code you have the answer."

Based on an inventive use of two different radio frequencies-long and short range-the solution consists of a Proximity Locator and infrared (IR)-enabled badge tags to provide sub-room-level locationing.

About the Proximity Solution: How it Works

Each locator is wired to a device or object: for example, a door in a restricted area such as an IT wiring closet or pharmaceutical closet. When that door is opened, the locator transmits short range event data to any badges in the area, which pick up the "what happened" and "where it happened" information, add the badge ID information and then send all this data to RF Code software, which enables tracking of who did what, where.

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.
