Golf Handicap Services are Reaching New Heights - TheGrint.com is an Example of how Golfers Now Track Their Handicap and Stats without Having to go out of Their Way

Miami, FL, Nov 28, 2012 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) -- Golfers were all used to the idea of not being able to track their golf handicap easily. Remembering to take the Scorecard home and going into the web to enter the score can be a pain for some. And using a phone app during a golf round is just not for everyone. Plus it all costs money for these generic Golf Handicap Calculators Golfers want to keep doing the same things they have always done. And if there is a solution it needs to be non intrusive to the status quo.

Well... TheGrint.com is pioneering with a service that might revolutionize the way Golf Handicaps are tracked. The value proposition Do everything the same way, and take a picture of your Scorecard at the end of the round with your phone. And the score will be uploaded for you. How simple is that While those scores are being updated TheGrint's algorithm analyzes them and automatically sends news to the friends of the users with relevant information about their rounds. For example, if the user broke 80 for the first time, there will be a message posted in a "Facebook Wall" like page that will show on all of their friends.

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.

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.
