Eastlink puts the customer first with new Wireless service - Big Savings in a Bundle + No Term Contracts, over Canada's first and only 100% 4G LTE network

(Canada Newswire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) HALIFAX, Feb. 14, 2013 /CNW/ - Today, Eastlink served up another first introducing its new, customer-focused Wireless service delivered over the first and only 100% 4G LTE network in Canada.

"We are so proud of this new service," says Lee Bragg, CEO of Eastlink.

"Our objective has been to launch a high quality product that provides an exceptional customer experience. Our team has worked tirelessly to deliver on that." With an investment of circa 200 million dollars, Eastlink's new wireless service adds another high value product to its iconic bundle.

"Consumers have been very vocal about what they want in a wireless service," says Matthew MacLellan, Eastlink Wireless President. "We've invested heavily to design a wireless experience that gives our customers what they've told us is most important to them - simple offers, better pricing, no term contracts, and faster, more reliable speeds." Pivotal to Eastlink's new Wireless service is the Eastlink "easyTab", which gives customers a great phone at a great price, without locking them into onerous term contracts like other carriers.

From a network coverage perspective, customers will be able to use their Eastlink wireless device around the world; the company already boasts more 4G LTE wireless sites across its launch footprint than any of its competitors.

When asked what that means for the customer, Mr. MacLellan explains."It means that unlike our competitors' legacy networks, customers in all of our markets, big and small, will experience the same lightning fast speed. So a customer in Amherst for example, will enjoy the same speeds and capabilities as a customer in Halifax." Eastlink is marketing its new Wireless service in Halifax, Nova Scotia first, starting Friday, February 15. Other locations are expected to launch in the weeks ahead.

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.

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.
