Pres Breaks Ground On HQ

Jan 25, 2013 (Albuquerque Journal - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) -- Presbyterian Healthcare Services said Thursday it has broken ground on a new office building on what will become a 38-acre administrative headquarters on the site of a former call center at 9521 San Mateo NE that it bought two years ago.

T he new t h r e e -- stor y, 195,000-square-foot building, near Balloon Fiesta Park, will supplement space in the existing 133,090-square-foot former Citi call center, providing a total of 318,000 square feet for the headquarters. The campus, to be called the Cooper Administration Center, will house about 2,100 employers.

The entire project -- new building and renovation of the existing one -- will cost $32 million. The project will provide jobs for 200 to 300 construction workers, with about 50 on the job site at any given time.

Presbyterian purchased the property for about $9.9 million in September 2011.

The company's central administration staff is currently housed in leased space in an office park near Albuquerque International Sunport. The lease expires in June 2014, thus giving the healthcare provider a year and a half to make the move to the former Citicorp site.

The shift from leasing its office space to owning it is a financial move to lower overhead costs over time, Presbyterian says in a description of the Cooper Center project provided to the Journal . "The new building will help us keep our costs down for our patients and members and allow us to reinvest those savings back into the communities we serve," it says.

General contractor for the project is Enterprise Builders, while the architect is Dekker Perich Sabatini and the engineer is Bridgers & Paxton Consulting Engineers. All are Albuquerque-based businesses.

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.

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.
