Poquoson's new golf cart regulations are announced

Nov 15, 2012 (Daily Press (Newport News - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) -- The city of Poquoson's new golf cart ordinance will become effective Dec. 1 and city officials have released details on the regulations.

Prior to driving golf carts on approved city streets, residents must first contact the Poquoson Police Department at 868-3367 in order to obtain an annual golf cart decal. When the application is submitted, the police department will provide applicable operation regulations, a yearly safety inspection form and a liability insurance form.

After applicants have completed all the forms and requirements, and paid the mandatory $10 fee, the police department will issue the annual golf cart license and required golf cart decal. Only licensed drivers may operate golf carts on city streets and all motor vehicle laws apply.

For information, call 868-3367.

Two contractors merge Two Poquoson businesses have merged and are operating under a new name.

Brauer's Mechanical has joined with Tidewater Power and Electric to form Tidewater Contracting, Craig Brauer said. The business is a class A contractor doing electrical, plumbing and HVAC work for customers from Elizabeth City, N.C., to Richmond.

Tidewater Contracting is currently housed at 311-G Ed Wright Lane in Newport News, though Brauer said the plan is to move back into Poquoson after a building is completed there. The phone number is 868-0730.

Shop with a Sheriff The York-Poquoson Sheriff's Office will hold its 11th Annual Shop with a Sheriff campaign in December. With the help of local churches and schools, 60 children from York County Poquoson will be selected to participate. The children will shop with York-Poquoson deputies Dec. 15 at Walmart in York County.

The Shop with a Sheriff committee has a goal of raising $9,000 by Dec. 15.

Donations by check can be made payable to Shop with a Sheriff and mailed to the York-Poquoson Sheriff's Office Shop with a Sheriff, P.O. Box 99, Yorktown, Va., 23690. All donations are tax deductible. For information, call 890-3679.

Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

Featured Whitepapers

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.
