Offshore Group Client Company, EE Technologies, Prepares for Reshoring

TUCSON, Ariz., Nov. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- EE Technologies recently installed its 10th new surface mount technology line in its Empalme, Sonora manufacturing plant. The company manufactures in Mexico under The Offshore Group's Mexico Shelter Plan.

This, along with installation of a Power Distribution Center (PDC) line, supports the manufacture of automotive products used globally. Many of EE Technologies' OEM and other customers are making decisions to bring products previously sent far offshore to North America, and increasingly to Mexico. The benefits of reshoring are significant for these customers. EE Technologies is honored to support their efforts at its Nevada and Mexico locations.

"With this new line we are gearing up for the big move of the automotive industry shifting from the Far East and China increasingly into Mexico. We have already been awarded several multimillion piece orders to support Ford, Chrysler, GM, BMW, and Honda, and want to be prepared to serve future needs also," states Sonny Newman, EE Technologies President.

And one of EE Technologies' customer partners recently transferred a PDC assembly line to the Empalme, Bella Vista Industrial Park location demonstrating confidence in a long-term partnership with EE Technologies. Some of the main pieces of equipment (42 in total) for the assembly line transferred include three auto insertion machines, one wave solder, one selective solder, three conformal machines with UV ovens, one 66 ton press, and dedicated in-process and End of Line (EOL) testers. This equipment is currently purposed for the customer's production requirements but is the property of EE Technologies and available for other opportunities.

With the PDC line now optimized, EE Technologies has delivered multiple satisfactory shipments to the customer. The units shipped were Power Distribution boxes for Mopar, a division of Chrysler. The Power Distribution boxes are big plastic boxes normally mounted in the engine compartment of vehicles and contain circuit boards, fuses and relays. EE Technologies assembles the PCBA's and then does the remaining assembly work to complete the boxes. The Power Distribution boxes are service parts for vehicles that have been out of production for at least 7 years and primarily end up in older Chrysler minivans and Dodge Durango trucks.

Both of these recent line installations highlight the opportunities that exist when companies communicate and look for collaborative solutions. EE Technologies relentlessly works with customers to ensure the optimal cost-quality-delivery outcome possible. And communication, trust, and respect are foundational no matter which shore you find yourself on.

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?

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 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.
