Prominent Internet and IT Analyst Gary Rowe Joins Respect Network as CEO

(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/13/12 -- Respect Network, the world's first personal cloud network, today announced the appointment of Gary Rowe, former president of market research firm Burton Group (now part of Gartner), as CEO of Respect Network Corporation. Burton was the leading global technology research company focusing on IT/Internet infrastructure with a client base that included over 40% of the Fortune 100. After assuring the successful integration of Burton Group with Gartner, Mr. Rowe served as an angel investor with Tech Coast Angels, the largest angel investing organization in the United States.

"I have advised many promising start-ups, and Respect Network presents a unique opportunity to build a better, more user-centric Internet. We aim to re-establish trust between individuals and organizations through a platform that allows people to control their data and interactions. A person who decides to communicate with a company on his or her own terms is far more valuable than someone who is unknowingly tracked and analyzed. I am honored to work with our Founding Partners to establish more meaningful, more sustainable, and more profitable relationships with customers and prospects by putting individuals in control of the data they share and the communications they receive on the Internet." Even earlier in his career, as a principal with Rapport Communication, Mr. Rowe was considered one of the most influential analysts and consultants in high tech. He has authored articles and been quoted in publications such as Computer World, Network World, Internet Week, InformationWeek and BusinessWeek. He served on the Board of Directors of the Electronic Messaging Association and chaired a consortium of global telecom providers. He has also served in management positions at AT&T and NCR.

Through its Founding Partner Program, Respect Network enlists companies committed to the strong personal data control protections of the award-winning Respect Trust Framework. Neustar, one of the world's leading trusted neutral network service providers, is the first Platinum Founding Partner. Swisscom, Switzerland's leading telecom provider as well as one of the most trusted brands in Europe, is a Gold Founding Partner. Other Founding Partners include Allfiled, BioID, Bitworld, Ctrl-Shift, The Customer's Voice, Disconnect, Edentiti, Kynetx, Gluu, miiCard, Mydex, OwnYourInfo, Planetwork, Project Danube, The Searls Group, TrustCloud, and Virtrue.

Two weeks ago at the Sibos international banking conference, Respect Network demonstrated a prototype of the SWIFT Digital Asset Grid project that it developed in collaboration with Innotribe, the innovation initiative of SWIFT. This prototype included two of the first personal cloud applications: a cloud-based address book and an "intentcasting" app that lets users share their intent to purchase with trusted vendors and receive only qualified, personalized offers in return.

Respect Network will soon begin inviting select global brands to participate in this new consortium, enabling them to empower and connect directly with customers in a way that has never before been possible. For more information, visit www.respectnetwork.com.

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.

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.
