Free Webinar: Crowdsourcing Security with Anonymous Tipping Systems

LEESBURG, Va., Nov. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Finding practical ways to enhance campus security without large add-on costs is a continuing challenge for schools. Anonymous tipping systems offer a powerful tool to rapidly and affordably boost security by leveraging a near-ubiquitous technology on today's campus - the cell phone. College administrators, campus safety directors, and CTOs are invited to learn more in a free webinar on Wednesday, December 12th, at 1:00 p.m. EST entitled "Crowdsourcing Security: Implementing an Anonymous Tipping System." (Photo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20121129/PH20872) Peter Ossmann, assistant director of emergency management at Siena Heights University (SHU) will discuss the experiences and lessons his school has learned over the course of two years with uTip, an anonymous tipping system that utilizes text messaging, the web, and printed posters.

"The tipping system we chose to implement offers us an important communication link from students to the administration," Ossmann says. "We've learned a lot over the last two years, including new and innovative uses for our system and I'm anxious to share that with others." Ossmann will discuss the steps SHU took to evaluate and implement a system, and then build recognition among students and faculty to promote its use. SHU also uses the system to offer a unique customer service feature during events, an aspect that Ossmann will cover as well.

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

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.
