Cisco Solutions to Support Magistrates in Russia's Oil Boom Region

(ENP Newswire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) ENP Newswire - 05 December 2012 Release date- 04122012 - MOSCOW -Cisco today announced that a network interaction system has been set up for the magistrates in the local judicial system of the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous District, also known as Yugra.

Fifty-one percent of the oil produced in Russia comes from Khanty-Mansi Autonomous District, giving the region great economic importance. The district is located in a remote area of Russia in a territory larger than that of any European country except for France and Ukraine.

As a result of the project, 74 judicial districts in 26 municipalities have a unified network, a joint videoconferencing system, and IP telephony with abbreviated dialing. Modernization of the telecommunications infrastructure improved technical and organizational support for the region's magistrates and helped to quickly inform the public about their activities. In addition, the new solutions have improved interaction between employees and cut the cost of network maintenance, long-haul communications and official travel.

Local area networks of the judicial districts have been merged into a unified infrastructure with consolidated information resources. The newly built system is based on Cisco Catalyst 2960 Series Switches, Cisco Catalyst 3750-X Series Switches and Cisco 1801, 2911, and 2921 Integrated Services Routers. They provide flexible and resilient data sharing, improved fault tolerance and accelerated data rates. Network perimeter protection in compliance with applicable Russian legislation is provided by Cisco ASA 5500 Series Adaptive Security Appliances and encryption gateways certified by the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation (FSB). Mobility is supported by the Cisco Aironet 1240 AG Series Access Points.

Uneven distribution of judicial districts across the territory of the district made it necessary to create central and peripheral network nodes. The central nodes are located in the cities of Nizhnevartovsk, Surgut, and Khanty-Mansiysk. They include high-end hardware systems with redundant critical elements.

The unified telephone network is based on Cisco Unified Communications. It efficiently integrates voice and video, wireless and other communications features on one platform. Calls are made by the Cisco Unified IP Phone 7911G, Cisco Unified IP Phone 7962G, and Cisco Unified IP Phone 9971. Videoconferencing is supported by the Cisco TelePresence MCU MSE 8510 bridge.

The solution was chosen by the administration of the governor, which is responsible for the regional magistrates as well as for complete and independent justice. The network collaboration platform in the Autonomous Region fully meets the requirements of the government program 'Information Society in Yugra - 2011-2013.' Key Facts / Highlights: Cisco took part in dozens of large-scale projects in the territory of the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous District. Cisco solutions support successful operations of Khanty-Mansiysk municipality, Khanty-Mansiysk bank, local internal affairs department, regional clinical hospital of Khanty-Mansiysk, Shpilman Center for rational usage of natural resources, Khanty-Mansiysk healthcare department, Yugra parliament, regional road police, regional cardiology hospital in Surgut, techno park in Khanty-Mansiysk, biathlon center in Khanty-Mansiysk, Sports Ice Palace in Surgut and many others.

In 2010, the government of the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous District and Cisco signed a memorandum of understanding to raise government efficiency and stimulate development of economic potential, information technologies and social services in the region. A year later a MoU was signed by Cisco and the Yugra State University to launch a Cisco innovation technology center in the campus.

Supporting Quotes: Eugenie Torgashin, head of IT resources and technologies department, Governor's Administration of the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous District: 'The converged collaboration network of the magistrates automates their workflow and constitutes a fundamental basis for a common information environment, enhancing convenience of interaction between citizens and the judicial system.' Igor Ezhkov, sales business development manager, Cisco: 'A common network collaboration platform for the magistrates of the Yugra Autonomous District helps us to offer innovative services to our citizens. At present the region installs a unified system for paying litigation expenses and fines via self-service devices.' Mikhail Pastukhov, partner account manager, Cisco: 'Successful implementation of the project became possible only as a result of coordinated and fruitful teamwork of the Urals Security System Center, governor's administration and Cisco. As a result, all components of the system were installed within a very short period of time in 74 judicial districts. The project also complied with the requirement to provide 24/7 communications service continuity.'

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.

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.
