Lockheed Martin UK Builds Upon Growing Reputation for UK Government IT Work

(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Lockheed Martin UK (LMUK) has built upon its growing reputation for the provision of IT support to the UK Government by securing a place among an elite group of companies providing cloud computing services to a full complement of Government departments and organisations.

LMUK has been selected by the Cabinet Office to provide a range of services including infrastructure, software and specialist cloud capabilities.

The G-Cloud 2 contract succeeds the previous G-Cloud 1 programme, which LMUK was also a part of.

Under the latest framework agreement, Lockheed Martin Information Systems & Global Solutions will now offer support such as computing and storage, e-mail and collaboration, cloud strategy and integration; cloud security; mission centric activities; green IT and energy optimisation; cloud brokering; virtualisation consulting; assessment for Oracle virtualisation and virtual desktop as a service assessment.

The second iteration of the G-Cloud framework agreement, better known as CloudStore, will run for a further twelve months, replacing G-Cloud I and extending the range of IT services available to departments and agencies.

"Lockheed Martin is delighted to expand its role as a provider of cloud services to the UK Government. We will again work closely with Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in the UK and leverage our considerable cloud experience in the US," said Stephen Ball, Lockheed Martin UK Chief Executive. "We continue to consolidate our position as an independent, emerging IT player in the UK. Providing services under G-Cloud 2 will enable us to continue delivering innovation-led, efficiency savings to the UK Government."

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

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.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER

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.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

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.
