CradlePoint Enables the "Connected Retail Experience" with Flexible Networks and Cloud Management Solutions

New York, New York, Jan 14, 2013 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) -- CradlePoint, a leader in 3G/4G wireless networking for the distributed enterprise, today announced its participation at the 2013 National Retail Federation (NRF) Big Show. CradlePoint will be showcasing wireless network solutions, an interactive VE CONNECT vending machine powered by CradlePoint, and a live demonstration of WiPipe Central, a cloud-enabled network management and application platform, within booth #2723 at the 2013 NRF Conference.

"Mobile commerce and wireless convergence have given rise to a 'connected retail experience' that consumers have come to expect and that retail IT managers are working hard to accommodate," said George Mulhern, CEO of CradlePoint. "Whether it's a diverse array of operational or transactional applications like digital signage, interactive kiosks, surveillance, or pop-up stores, CradlePoint's 3G/4G network solutions and WiPipe Central have attracted national retailers who realize the need for constant uptime, enhanced network intelligence, and mobile app enablement through public WiFi to fulfill the promise of the connected shopping experience." Indicative of CradlePoint's role in powering the connected retail experience, Vendors Exchange will demonstrate the VE CONNECT interactive vending platform in CradlePoint's booth. The VE CONNECT, which features digital signage, games, dynamic advertising, video, and nutritional information, requires constant Internet connectivity for uninterrupted operations and an optimal customer experience. "Shy of unplugging the device, CradlePoint routers pretty much run all the time," said Chris Goumas, Senior Vice President of Business Development and User Experiences. "That's been something I haven't had to worry about as we bring this game-changing technology to the world." The centerpiece of CradlePoint's booth at NRF will be a demonstration of WiPipe Central, a highly scalable, enterprise-class cloud platform that supports multiple applications for the deployment, management, and enhanced intelligence of retail networks. WiPipe Central applications allow retailers to centrally manage, monitor, configure, and upgrade geographically-dispersed systems to maximize uptime, maintain PCI compliance, and avoid the use of costly on-site technical resources. WiPipe Central's location services application allows IT managers to see devices on Google Maps with the ability to tag status data and receive GPS or cell tower location updates.

"As cloud-enabled software with an application-oriented architecture, WiPipe Central is rapidly evolving to create simplified management, superior security, and enhanced intelligence for retail networks," noted Mulhern. "In the coming year, WiPipe Central will offer faster updates, new retail network management applications, smarter analytics, and a more intuitive API system."

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.

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.
