Councils launch International Trade Survey 2012

Dec 10, 2012 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) -- North-east companies with overseas business links are invited to take part in the Aberdeen City and Shire International Trade Survey.

Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire councils carry out the survey each year to gain an understanding of the level of international trade companies are engaged in and their future intentions.

The survey also allows the councils to gather other key metrics which identify trends in business activity, such as the main export markets and the value of overseas business.

The International Trade Survey, aimed at all firms with an exportable product or service, takes in a cross-section of businesses in a number of sectors including: energy; tourism; life sciences; ICT; and food and drink.

The data collated serves as a valuable source of intelligence and is the basis for Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire councils' trade development activities which focuses on internationalising the local economy. The information gathered from businesses is vital to help shape this support and to ensure that the international trade needs of local companies are identified and addressed.

Aberdeen City Council's Economic and Business Development Project Director Gerry Brough commented: "I would strongly encourage companies to take a few minutes to complete this survey, as their responses will directly influence the Council's trade development priorities and the activities that we deliver to help Aberdeen companies grow their exports in key target markets." Aberdeenshire Council's Head of Economic Development Belinda Miller commented: "The region has a first-class track record in exporting, whether in the subsea technology or food and drink sectors, and we know that the route to further growth for local companies lies in a continued focus on export. The Survey helps us identify how best to support that growth."

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.
