BeachBeyond Debuts Online Beach Rental Marketplace

Rochelle Park, NJ, Dec 21, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE via COMTEX) -- NorthReal, Inc., today announced its foray into the vacation rental market unveiling BeachBeyond.com. BeachBeyond refreshes the tropical travel experience by connecting beach rental goers with quality photos and in-depth property information to help make informed decisions on the best places to book your next getaway vacation.

BeachBeyond quickly enables travelers to find their perfect dream vacation destination. The property information is provided exclusively by licensed real estate brokerages, property management companies & private holdings who are intimately familiar with each listing and the surrounding community. Each listing is qualified by the BeachBeyond staff before being submitted to BeachBeyond.

A recent 2012 Forrester Research report stated that 87% of vacation travelers used the internet for the bulk of their travel planning in 2012. The vacation rental market represents a sizeable chunk of real estate transactions that surprisingly only a third of U.S.-based travelers feel vacation rental portals do a decent job representing travel choices. Travelers are increasingly expressing frustration with the online travel experience.

"We've done a complete reboot for the online travel industry." says Justin Buonamano, VP of Sales for NorthReal. "We're introducing streamlined tools that give vacation-goers instant access to available homes for rent in trending destinations right at their fingertips." "BeachBeyond goes 'beyond' just the property listing & offers user reviews, pictures, and destination information that mean something for each property." says Jameson Mortimer, Director of Engineering for NorthReal's Smartphone Division."Both the online version & our smartphone app were carefully designed to be fast, simple, and fun to use for both real estate professionals and beach goers." BeachBeyond is kick starting their launch in the Florida market with plans to expand the eastern seaboard Spring 2013 with a national roll-out later in the year. BeachBeyond is free-to-use and includes special money-saving offers at select destinations with participating airlines, restaurants and more. From surfer bungalows to hilltop villas, you're destined to get lost on your next tropical getaway with BeachBeyond.

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.
