Partner wants joint mobile network with rivals

Jan 31, 2013 (Globes - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) -- Orange franchisee Partner Communications Ltd. (Nasdaq: PTNR; TASE: PTNR) wants to establish a joint mobile network with other carriers, Partner VP engineering Eyal Iluz said at the Israel Mobile & Media Association (IMA) 4G Israel Conference in Tel Aviv today. This is the first time that Partner has made such a statement publicly.

Iluz said that mobile carriers needed more frequencies to meet demand for LTE and Wi-Fi. He said that Partner had upgraded its network to make it the fastest network in the country, but that the industry needed more frequencies regardless of the need to permit carriers to shares antennas.

Cellcom Israel Ltd. (NYSE:CEL; TASE:CEL) CTO Eliezer (Lipa) Ogman said that the carrier had already conducted 4G tests with its two vendors, Ericsson AB (NYSE; OMX: ERIC) and Nokia Siemens Networks. He said that 90 percent of the carriers' antennas were linked to its independent transmission, giving it an important financial edge over its rivals, which spend at least 50 percent more on transmission through Bezeq Israeli Telecommunication Co. Ltd. (TASE: BEZQ).

Ogman added that 4G was more important to provide capacity than speed. He said that 3G can have speeds similar to 4G, but that this depends on the number of frequencies allocated.

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.
