(Globes (Tel Aviv) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Jan. 14--Israeli companies will begin announcing their financials next week, but we will already know this week the way the wind is blowing, because almost all of them will attend Needham and Company's Growth Conference, which will run through Thursday in New York.

Mellanox Technologies Ltd. (Nasdaq:MLNX; TASE:MLNX) chairman, president and CEO Eyal Waldman will make his first appearance on Thursday since the company's revenue warning. The company will publish its financials the following week.

Among the companies which have not published warnings, I expect optimistic presentations at the conference by Radware Ltd. (Nasdaq: RDWR) CFO Meir Moshe. The company's network traffic control and security solutions have had positive momentum for several quarters, in part through OEM agreements with Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. (Nasdaq: CHKP), Juniper Networks Inc. (Nasdaq: JNPR), and other manufacturers.

Like Check Point, more than a third of Radware's current value is in its net cash reserves, which I estimate at $280 million, and investors will want to hear from Moshe about the company's plans for this cash mountain, which will continue to grow.

Another interesting presentation at the Growth Conference will be made by Nova Measuring Instruments Ltd. (Nasdaq:NVMI; TASE:NVMI) president and CEO Gabi Seligsohn. The company today reaffirmed its guidance for the fourth quarter. Attunity Inc. (Nasdaq: ATTU) CEO Shimon Alon and Telit Communications plc (AIM:TCM) CEO Oozi Cats will also make presentations.

Nova, a manufacturer of metrology solutions for semiconductor production, has an excellent starting position for 2013. On one hand, major technological changes are underway in semiconductor production lines, which means strong demand for the company's products, and there will be major changes between the semiconductor manufacturers and their major customers, such as Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL), which will switch production from Samsung Semiconductor Ltd. to Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. Ltd. (TWSE: 2230; NYSE: TSM), on the other hand. This means potential for more metrology solutions.

As for Attunity, I believe that 2012 was a year of its consolidation and recognition as a small supplier of cloud computing and big data solutions, following the company's bitter war for survival in 2009-11. The company is now growing rapidly on the basis of OEM and other cooperation agreements signed last year with IT giants. I believe that the share price will begin to respond, after jumping over the past few months to $7.50.

Telit is a global leader in the sale of wireless modules for machine-to-machine (M2M) communications, like the ones found in new cars, alarm systems, taxi hailers, vending machines, and a great many other applications. The company is profitable, and probably passed the $200 million sales threshold in 2012.

The interesting thing about Telit, and Cats will probably expand on this point at the conference, is that it established a services support arm last year, mainly for European customers, on the basis of contracts with Telefonica SA (BMAD; NYSE: TEF; LSE: TDE). Two weeks ago, Telit acquired a small US services company on the basis with contracts with AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T), which will give Telit a strong foothold in the US market.

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.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER

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.

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.
