TMCNet:  Electric Utilities To Discuss Disaster Preparedness

Electric Utilities To Discuss Disaster Preparedness

TULSA, Okla., Jan. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Leaders from North American electric utilities will meet Jan. 28 in San Diego to discuss how far utilities should go to prepare for disruptive events such as Hurricane Sandy and winter weather.

(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20110627/DA26630LOGO) The session, "Preparing for Disruptive Events: How Far Should You Go " is part of the fourth annual Electric Light & Power Executive Conference. This year the conference is Jan. 27 and 28 at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront.

"This session couldn't be more relevant post-Sandy and in the dead of winter," said Teresa Hansen, conference chairwoman and editor in chief of Electric Light & Power magazine. "When customers lose power--no matter the reason--patience is tested and utilities are left scrambling to restore power safely and quickly. To combat these outages, utilities could harden their grids, but to what extent, and how much are customers willing to pay for better reliability " Experts weighing in on the discussion will include moderator Ivo Hug, marketing manager of power delivery and utilization at the Electric Power Research Institute; David Geier, vice president of electric operations at San Diego Gas & Electric; Paul Centolella, vice president of Analysis Group; and Elin Swanson Katz, consumer counsel at the Connecticut Office of Consumer Counsel.

Other sessions will address: smart grid spending; the state of the economy; how to create a compelling image and message; and utility flexibility and value. Keynote speakers are best-selling author Michael Reagan and former professional baseball player Jim Abbott. More information is available at http://elpconference.com.

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?

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.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

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.
