Farmington board approves county dispatch applications

FARMINGTON, Dec 12, 2012 (Sun Journal - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) -- The Franklin County Dispatch Center moved another step forward Monday after five members of Farmington's Planning Board unanimously approved applications for the project.

Franklin County Commissioners voted earlier Monday to move forward with Taylor Made Homes Inc. of Wilton to build the communications center on county property.

A partial board, including Chairman Clayton King Jr., members Lloyd Smith, Timothy Hardy, Craig Jordan and alternate member Gloria McGraw, went through a short checklist of items for the applications for site review, soil erosion/storm water management and a wireless telecommunications facility. They unanimously approved each application.

Fred Marshall, project manager for Plymouth Engineering, briefly described plans for the 2,200-square-foot building.

"The building will be totally independent of the jail and sheriff's office," he said. "It's a stand-alone facility." No abutters to the county property have called or voiced objections, Code Enforcement Officer Steve Kaiser said.

The plan also meets the town's requirements for parking with a total of 26 spaces available between the jail, dispatch and Sheriff's Department, Kaiser said.

The plan is to erect a new communications tower. It is low enough to not require lighting, Marshall said.

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.

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.
