IceWEB Partners with Dascom Systems Group in Public Safety and Utility Markets

STERLING, Va. --(Business Wire)--

IceWEB (News - Alert), Inc.™ (OTCBB: IWEB), an award-winning Unified Data Storage appliance provider for cloud and virtual environments that features a highly secure, scalable IceBOX Private Digital Cloud solution today announced that it has partnered with Dascom Systems Group, an innovative leading provider of IPTV (News - Alert) and interactive videoconferencing solutions to the public safety market.

The U.S. Public Safety Market (excluding post-warranty revenue), in 2012 aggregated $51 billion by the Department of Homeland Security. The Department projects that this number will reach $81 billion by 2020.

IceWEB will provide its IceBOX Private Cloud BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) solution to the partnership to deliver secure/ easy file sync and share capabilities for public safety enterprises needing to store data securely. This combined with Dascom's hosted interactive videoconferencing technology will empower users highly secure, reliable, anytime/ anywhere access to files stored in enterprise cloud infrastructures from both mobile devices and browser interfaces such as Firefox®, Internet Explorer® or Safari®. With this anytime, anywhere access from smartphones, tablets, desktops and web browsers, users can easily store, share and collaborate on corporate documents.

"This IceWEB partnership with Dascom opens a new national BYOD market for us. Dascom has a strong leadership presence in the Public Safety (Police, Fire, and Utilities) market. As they expand their suite of solutions, the Public Safety market has an urgent need for our IceBOX solution and the security it provides. Dascom has many long-standing, significant customers in this market through its datacenters, and together, we'll provide those customers with critical end-to-end solutions," stated Rob Howe, CEO of IceWEB. "We'll deliver both strict security and high availability requirements for the Public Safety and Utility markets without sacrificing user mobility and efficiency. Dascom's highly secure datacenters running IceWEB hardware and our IceBOX services, will be the go-to player for this service. We believe this strategy will be beneficial for both companies," Howe concluded.

"The move to the Private Digtal Network national cloud solutions presents a great alternative for our customers that do not have the resources or staff to expand their infrastructure, and specifically provides public safety organizations a path to make data more accessible to first responders," said Dan Draughn, Vice President of Business Development, for Dascom Systems Group.

IceBOX helps improve user efficiency and security without adding complexity. IceBOX integrates with LDAP or Active Directory authentication, utilizes encryption and the broadest range of device support (iphone, iPAD, Android (News - Alert), Blackberry, Windows Mobile and Kindle).

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

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.

Featured Whitepapers

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

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.
