IP Access International Deploys iDirect Evolution Technology To Launch Isis Dual-Satellite Network

HERNDON, Va., Dec. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- VT iDirect, Inc. (iDirect), a company of VT Systems, Inc. (VT Systems), today announced that IP Access International, a global satellite service provider, has deployed a new iDirect Series 15100 Universal Satellite hub to launch its Isis dual-satellite network. The new hub, located in Woodbine, Maryland, is linked with the company's existing iDirect hub in Napa, California, to provide critical redundancy for IP Access International's emergency management customers. iDirect is a world leader in satellite-based IP communications technology.

(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20080912/NEF020LOGO) Having access to a highly reliable and rapidly deployable satellite communications system is essential for emergency management professionals, first responders, and disaster relief organizations. Through Isis, IP Access offers seamless connectivity between its west coast network, operating on Intelsat's Galaxy-18 satellite, and its east coast network, operating on SES' AMC-9 satellite. With both satellite networks online and operational, Isis gives customers the ability to switch between either network for look angle versatility or in the event of a disruption in service. This redundancy is particularly important for emergency management, disaster recovery and business continuity applications where dedicated and reliable bandwidth is essential to keeping operations online. The company's new hub also provides IP Access with a more robust service offering for its growing customer base in the mining, oil and gas and maritime markets.

"With multiple satellite options and independent earth stations on both coasts, IP Access can better support our emergency management customers who need to keep their networks online at all times. Giving our customers the ability to switch between satellites quickly and easily in the event of a service disruption or to provide look angle diversity is an important differentiator for our business and it's all due to our investment in the iDirect Evolution Platform." Alan RICH President, IP Access International "Satellite has long been a key technology for emergency response and disaster recovery applications. Thanks to iDirect's modular universal hub and line card system, IP Access was able to launch its bicoastal network easily and affordably, allowing the company to deliver a redundant satellite service that meets their customers' connectivity needs and will help their business grow."

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.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER

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.

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.
