Working with kids, networking at top of new Miss Tempe's wish list

Feb 09, 2013 (East Valley Tribune (Mesa - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) -- Andrea Malinski was crowned Miss Tempe recently, a position that she hopes to use to expand her community service and networking opportunities.

"The community service and networking opportunities are so valuable," said the 23-year-old Arizona State University graduate student, who is working toward her masters in non-profit studies. "I'm really looking forward to working with the Children's Miracle Network." Malinski completed her undergraduate degree in Azusa Pacific University, where she studied elementary education.

"I love kids, but I realized that I don't necessarily want to work in the school environment," Malinski said.

Instead, she hopes to work with kids through her involvement with non-profits, she said. Currently, she volunteers at notMYkid, a Scottsdale-based non-profit that helps at-risk youth and families.

Malinski will compete against about 20 other local title winners in the Miss Arizona competition at the end of June.

Malinski has competed in pageants since she was 12-years-old.

"It was at the recommendation of a friend," she said. "My friend had done one before, but wanted a friend to compete with. I had such a great time." The competition and training required for pageants taught Malinski how to break out of her shell, better public speaking skills and poise, she said.

"I knew my ultimate goal was to compete in the Miss America organization," she said.

The Miss America Scholarship Fund is the largest scholarship provider for women, according to the group's website. They awarded more than $45 million in cash and scholarship assistance through state and local competitions.

The title of Miss Tempe accompanies a $250 scholarship, Malinski said.

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.
