Shared Services Canada selects MTS Inc. to deliver and manage its MPLS network

(ENP Newswire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) ENP Newswire - 27 December 2012 Release date- 21122012 - TORONTO, ON - Manitoba Telecom Services Inc. (MTS Inc.), announced today that it has signed a multi-year contract to provide business IP and switched ethernet services to Shared Services Canada (SSC), the Government of Canada department responsible for providing telecommunication services, email and data centres to SSC partners.

The implementation of Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) managed service will help SSC deliver on its mandate to improve the efficiency, reliability and security of the government's IT infrastructure. It will connect up to 850 sites across the country, with the flexibility and intelligence of IP routing and the transport quality of a single, high performance network. By implementing an IP-based solution, voice, data and multimedia applications can be converged onto a single private network, simplifying the ability for network development and providing a higher overall return on infrastructure investment. This, combined with the benefits of a switched ethernet solution, will allow smooth and dependable sharing of information and applications across multiple LANs, further increasing SSC's productivity.

'We have a long history of working with the federal government and will now have an even bigger role in creating greater efficiency in their network environment,' said Dean Prevost, President of Allstream. 'We're very pleased that our solutions fit the government's objective of efficiently using technology to increase productivity.' Manitoba Telecom Services Inc.

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.

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.
