The website includes a three minute timeline video showing President Mike Granby walking through Red Lion's history.

Red Lion first established itself as a provider of superior industrial automation products, earning nationwide recognition for being the #1 panel meter company in the United States - a title that is still held today. Looking to broaden its product portfolio, the company acquired Paradigm Controls, a UK-based leader in the operator panel market, in 1996.

In 2010, Red Lion - realizing the potential of Ethernet for industrial applications - acquired N-Tron, a well-established manufacturer of hardened industrial switches. The combination of Ethernet with automation enables customers to not only communicate and display data, but also move data from the manufacturing plant through the enterprise. The following year, the company added industrial RTUs, Layer 3 switches and cellular M2M products with the acquisition of Sixnet, a leading provider of industrial networking solutions for markets such as power, utilities, transportation, maritime, military and more.

"We are currently in the middle of exciting changes, as we celebrate our anniversary and take steps towards bringing N-Tron and Sixnet together as part of a bigger, better Red Lion," said Mike Granby, president of Red Lion Controls. "The end result A comprehensive set of products that enable you to connect, monitor and control anything. From one device to a thousand devices. Connecting serially, via Ethernet, or over high-speed wireless networks. Speaking one protocol, or hundreds of protocols. On a single machine, across your factory, or spanning multiple sites all over the globe." In celebration of 40 years of innovation, Red Lion will be opening its doors and inviting local media to visit the company's manufacturing headquarters in York, Pa.

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 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.
