Create a trip. Sync to iPhone. Hit the road.

"As soon as a trip is saved on the website it syncs to the app for immediate turn-by-turn navigation and viewing your waypoints," says Tatiana Parent, Co-Founder of Roadtrippers. "This means no more printing off directions, no more hassle and no more kicking yourself for missing all the cool stuff that could be hidden off any highway exit."

"This year more than 58 percent of holiday travel will be on the road," said Parent. "So the timing couldn't be better. This year why not take a scenic route, or stop to support an independent restaurant on the way We can help with that!" The company worked with boutique app developer Forest Giant in Louisville, Ky., to develop the app and the two companies have big plans for its future.

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.
