Amazon Web Services (AWS) Direct Connect Now Available to Telx Clients Nationally

NEW YORK, NY, Jan 17, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- Telx(R), a leading provider of global interconnectivity, cloud enablement services and datacenter solutions, today announced the combined availability of Amazon Web Services (AWS) Direct Connect with Telx's Datacenter Connect for Telx clients across the United States. Telx clients can now leverage private interconnection to an expanded roster of AWS facilities spanning coast to coast. Moreover, these capabilities can be combined with network services from the hundreds of carriers and cloud service providers interconnecting at Telx's industry-leading facilities to solve a broad range of complex challenges. Such solutions enable increased performance, security, availability, distributed processing, and redundant storage to support normal operations as well as business continuity and disaster recovery.

As recent extreme weather events have shown, clients must consider business continuity and disaster recovery as part of their overall business and IT strategies. Moreover, increasingly demanding customer expectations and accelerating usage of cloud services and hybrid architectures require a variety of network strategies to connect users, enterprise data centers, colocation facilities, and the cloud.

Clients will benefit from the value of cost-effective, high performance, secure private access to the AWS network to support requirements for mission-critical systems in the event of a disaster.

In addition, clients with international end-users can leverage Telx's gateway facilities, international network service providers, and Telx's AWS Direct Connect and Datacenter Connect to enable localized access to their global user base.

"Extending Telx's service offerings with AWS enables clients to design their applications to achieve faster end-user response times, greater security and availability, and better protection from potential regional failures. Today's enterprises face an array of complex application and architectural requirements. Telx's continued investments in state-of-the-art facilities and ever-increasing ability to provide a rich variety of interconnection solutions between facilities and to AWS continues to increase the value of the Telx ecosystem," said Joe Weinman, senior vice president of cloud services and strategy for Telx.

Connectivity via Amazon's Direct Connect provides a wide range of deployment scenarios for Telx's clients, now reaching a broader footprint, including: -- Connectivity for direct storage - private, high-throughput access to AWS facilitates periodic migration/replication of data to or from AWS into customer-managed storage solutions; this enables a wide spectrum of business continuity/disaster recovery policies and data retention strategies.

-- Big Data - high-bandwidth connectivity provides customers with the ability to efficiently transfer large data volumes into and out of AWS, allowing for import/export of large-scale data sets for high performance "big data" computing applications.

-- High-performance applications - high bandwidth combined with low-latency connectivity for improved I/O and API response times allows customers to use AWS as an extension of their data center LAN and integrate hybrid cloud strategies into a wide range of applications.

-- Custom hybrid architectures - high-throughput access to AWS enables integration of custom hardware solutions into the AWS management system, with real-time streaming of data to and from AWS.

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 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.
