Always an innovator and visionary in the data protection market, FalconStor is once again taking charge by expanding its channel marketing and sales initiatives in 2013.

We congratulate this year's Channel Chiefs for their stellar record of business innovation and applaud them for their continued dedication to the partner community." "Partners are under more pressure than ever before to deliver solutions that protect their customers' data from mounting natural threats and human-induced disasters. Add to that the ever-expanding size and complexity of the typical data center and it's clear that someone needs to address these issues head on -- and that someone is FalconStor," Quinn said. "FalconStor is driving the future of data protection, and PartnerChoice is one of this industry's most aggressive and dynamic channel programs, which is continually evolving to meet the needs of our partners and their customers."

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?

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.
