Power on the go [Financial Express (India)]

(Financial Express (India) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) If your mobile phone battery gets discharged very quickly, you can depend on this portable mobile charger. The Recharge+ is an ultra slim device, simple to use, and adds hours to a mobile phone and portable media player's battery life. Its maker, PM Powerpack Solutions, claims that the charger takes approximately four hours to charge and delivers idle discharging for up to 180 days. It retails for R1,499 and is available in two colours, Black and White.

In my test-run, the portable charger came across as a convenient way to charge up a dying mobile phone without the need for an electrical outlet. The Recharge+ comes in a compact form factor, measuring 23 x 77 x 33 mm and weighs around 79.7g. It is equipped with a power button, with an LED light and a micro USB input port and has an inbuilt short circuit which protects it from getting damaged by overcharging.

The Recharge+ has a charging jack, which you can attach to an adapter to juice up the charger. Yes, you have to charge the charger before you begin using it. I charged it up for a few hours and then tested it with my BlackBerry Bold 4 that was out of battery power. The charger went to work almost immediately, and I managed to power up the phone and continue making calls. An hour later and the Bold was sufficiently charged again.

Frankly, I was really impressed with such a speedy recovery, and the Recharge+ certainly delivered on its promise. This device is compatible with mobile phones from Apple, Samsung, Nokia, BlackBerry, Sony Ericsson and HTC. As a word of caution, always keep your portable charger in a dry and clean place. Also, never operate it in extremely high temperatures.

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.
