Air China to upgrade aircraft, increase frequency for NYC nonstops

Feb 07, 2013 (AIRLINE INDUSTRY INFORMATION via COMTEX) -- Chinese flag carrier Air China said that is upgrading service for Asia-bound travelers from New York on March 31, 2013 by upgrading to Boeing (NYSE: BA) 777-300ER aircraft and increasing its frequency from seven to 11 per week for its nonstop New York-Beijing flights.

Air China's New York GM Yuelong Zhou said that the moves are in response to growing passenger demand for more convenient nonstop services between New York and Beijing.

Business or leisure travelers bound for Beijing or onward to domestic Chinese cities and other destinations in Asia such as Hong Kong, Vietnam, India, the Philippines, Thailand and many others, stand to benefit the most from Air China's increased capacity and convenient connecting flights, he said.

Air China said it is the only airline with nonstop service between New York and Beijing. It is also the only airline with first class cabin between these two cities. Current daily flights between New York and Beijing are CA 982 and CA 981.

The additional outbound flight, CA 990, departs from JFK on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday at 2: 50 am, arriving in Beijing Capital International Airport at 2:20 pm local time the next day. Inbound, CA 989 leaves Beijing at 9:00 am also on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, arriving in New York at 10:20 am local time on the same day.

The B777-300ER is billed as the largest long-range twin-engine jetliner available. Air China's first class service on the 777 features eight luxury suites, 41 full-flat bed seats in business class and 259 economy seats with individual monitors and in-seat audio-video on demand.

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

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.
