Web Service Delivers Much Needed Boost in Emergency Preparedness for Senior Care and Services Organizations

COLUMBUS, Ohio, Nov. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Connect 4 Healthcare, LLC has been providing secure communication solutions to the Long Term Care Industry for several years. What many might not be aware of is that one of their services' core features is a multi-threaded mass notification utility which offers their customers emergency communication capabilities that far exceed what the majority of long term care and services providers have today. When the need arises, Connect clients can instantly communicate to the families and related health professionals of all their residents/clients with a single mouse click or press of a button on their cell phone - a capability that dozens of providers and thousands of family members sorely needed recently when Hurricane Sandy was making landfall.

According to Neil Moore, Founder and CEO of the company, "Historically, providers have relied on the telephone in an emergency - most still do. During Sandy we even saw a couple of providers posting notices on their websites. Neither approach is practical or effective in an emergency". Craig Gordon, Director of Business Development for Connect said, "We spoke with a residential care provider in Texas last year who had a building damaged by a tornado. They said it took them more than 17 hours on the phone to contact the families of their residents...imagine if you were the last family on their list. In an emergency you need to push information concurrently through multiple channels directly to everyone who needs it. That's exactly what Connect allows our clients to do." The company's Connect for Healthcare(TM) web service combines email, text messaging and secure web portals to enable their clients to communicate effectively, securely and most importantly in an emergency - immediately. The company recently posted their emergency communication recommendations on its website.

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.

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.
