AddressDoctor Delivers Irish Address Verification and Certification by New Zealand Post

MAXDORF, Germany and REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Nov 26, 2012 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX) -- AddressDoctor, the leading provider of global address validation and correction solutions, today announced the release and availability of its latest Software Library - AddressDoctor Software Library Version 5.3.0.; the validation and correction software ensuring speedy postal delivery around the globe. The latest release includes address validation for Ireland and is "SendRight(TM)" certified by New Zealand Post.

Irish Postal Address Verification Due to popular customer demand, AddressDoctor now provides postal address validation and correction for Ireland. Ireland has not yet introduced a post-code system, therefore an Irish address currently, consists of the county, nearest post town and the town-land (rural addresses), city or town name, street name, house number and apartment or flat number (urban addresses). AddressDoctor's new address validation software for Ireland is able to verify and correct those addresses built on a database containing almost 59,000 locality names and more than one million addresses. This enhancement will help customers ensure that mailings and shipments are correctly addressed in order to reach their destination in Ireland.

"For Irish address validation, AddressDoctor uses high quality and detailed reference data in Ireland, providing building level coverage for more than 98% of the country," says Steffen Niehues, vice president and general manager, AddressDoctor. "With the new Irish address data, customers can profit from superior accuracy when it comes to their Irish address validation." Inaccurately addressed mail can cost organizations millions of dollars a year due to non-deliverable mail or delayed shipments.

New Zealand Postal Certification Since 2008, the New Zealand postal authority offers a certification program to decrease the number of incorrectly addressed pieces of mail through the SendRight(TM) Address Accuracy Program. This program requires bulk mail customers to validate their postal addresses against New Zealand Post's Postal Address File (PAF), and obtain a Statement of Accuracy (SOA). To obtain the certification, which allows for a postal discount, an SOA percentage of 85% must be achieved. The portion of mail pieces with inaccurate addresses below this percentage will be charged at the full standard mail rate. SendRight(TM) certification provides a process for address validation software to be tested for accuracy and quality address standards, and recognized as suitable to issue SOAs. AddressDoctor's Software Library Version 5.3.0 has passed the certification program and was approved by New Zealand Post.

Niehues continued, "With SendRight(TM) certification in New Zealand, AddressDoctor is now certified by five postal certification programs worldwide, including CASS by USPS, SERP by Canada Post, AMAS by Australia Post and SNA by La Poste in France. Postal certifications serve as a standard for address data quality measurement and allow customers to benefit of postage discounts."

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

Featured Whitepapers

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

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

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.
