IPKeys Technologies Teams with Connexx Energy on OpenADR 2.0a Driver Software for NiagaraAX

(PR Web Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Eatontown, New Jersey (PRWEB) January 08, 2013 IPKeys Technologies, an expert in Smart Grid communications technology and Connexx Energy, Inc., a subsidiary of Lynxspring, Inc. and leading developer of open technologies for building automation and energy management solutions today announced that they will partner to deliver an OpenADR 2.0a certified Virtual End Node (VEN) driver for the Niagara AX® platform. Through this solution, IPKeys Technologies and Connexx Energy will provide an OpenADR 2.0a certified driver for Niagara AX®, permitting rapid deployment of standards-based AutoDR solutions to the Niagara community and enabling the collaborative facility-grid relationship necessary to make Smart Grid a reality.

By integrating IPKeys’ OpenADR 2.0a certified EISSClient technology with Connexx Energy’s Niagara® driver platform, IPKeys and Connexx can provide C&I facilities with a complete, scalable, and secure end-to-end AutoDR solution. Connexx Energy and Lynxspring will both actively market and support the Niagara® based OpenADR 2.0a Driver to Connexx Energy’s Energy Partner Channel (CEP) and OEM customers and Lynxspring’s Business Partner (LBP) Channel. In addition, they will make it available to the Niagara Community and users of the Niagara Framework.

“With rising and unpredictable energy costs, it makes good economic sense to operate and maintain your building as efficiently as possible and take advantage of programs that OpenADR 2.0 offers, said Marc Petock, Vice President, Marketing at Connexx Energy. “This new driver allows almost any facility to participate in demand response without fear of being locked into a proprietary technology.” “We are delighted to announce our agreement to integrate IPKeys’ certified OpenADR 2.0a facility endpoint technology into Connexx Energy’s Niagara AX® driver portfolio,” said IPKeys Managing Director & CFO, Robert Nawy. “This new and highly secure technology integration enables facilities to receive and respond to actionable open-standard and machine-interoperable market signals. Connexx’s OpenADR 2.0a driver will permit the Niagara AX® community to begin the process of planning, valuing, and automating participation in demand response and price sensitive markets.” Both companies will have demonstrations in their booths at Distributech 2013 and AHR Expo 2013.

Through this partnership, IPKeys and Connexx illustrate their continued commitment to interoperability and open standards while enabling C&I customers to automatically connect to the Smart Grid and enable them to more easily take advantage of automated demand response programs.

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.

Featured Whitepapers

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.


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.
