Endicott Selects Startel to Provide Clients with a Quality Customer Experience

Telephone answering service chooses Startel for its open source technology and multi-site capabilities Startel Corporation, the leading provider of unified business communications for contact centers, today announced it has been selected by Endicott, a customer-focused leader in the telephone answering industry, to deploy its enterprise communications software solution at several of its sites. With this implementation, Startel will centralize Endicott’s communications system, ultimately improving overall efficiency and control.

Endicott had originally purchased a business communications software solution from a competitor to enhance the customer experience. Impressed with Startel’s evolution under president and CEO Bill Lane’s leadership and its solution offering, which was better suited for Endicott’s services, Endicott’s CEO Randy Harmat replaced the competitor’s solutions with Startel’s enterprise communications platform.

"The decision to select Startel was an easy choice,” said Harmat. “After learning about its open source technology, built-in disaster recovery and multi-site capabilities, we felt very comfortable from an infrastructure and redundancy perspective. We also liked that Startel is focused on developing products that are scalable and nimble for today, yet will adapt easily to new and unforeseen technologies and trends.” “We are very excited about this new partnership,” said Lane. “Like Startel, Endicott is a solution-oriented company focused on helping its clients achieve their business objectives. We look forward to working together to provide their users with a unified communications solution that delivers efficiency improvements and the highest quality customer experience.” Endicott’s new communications system is expected to go live this month. Implementation will begin with the host site, Corridor Answering, and extend to its other locations, including Central Voice, Bryant Answering and Atlantic Communications. At that time, Endicott will be able to offer its clients superior disaster recovery, enhanced reporting, and a self-service option that will enable them to manage their accounts at their convenience.

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.

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.
