Xora Streetsmart Wins The 2013 Mobility Award

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. --(Business Wire)--

MobileTrax, LLC, a leading mobile and wireless industry analyst firm, has announced that Xora StreetSmart is the winner of its 2013 Mobility Award for enterprise-mobility integrated mobile management.

For the Mobility Awards competition, Xora StreetSmart was one of 597 products and services vying for awards in 72 categories. More than 60 members of the press who cover mobile and wireless select the Mobility Awards winners.

According to J. Gerry Purdy, Ph.D., principal analyst with MobileTrax, the firm's honorees are the "brightest innovators" in the mobile-computing and wireless data-communications industries during the previous calendar year.

"Mid-size organizations with always-mobile employees typically need turnkey, cloud-hosted products they easily can configure to their own needs. Xora is a market leader in just this space," said Dr. Purdy. "Designing, building and deploying custom hardware and software solutions for mobile workers -- say, as FedEx does -- simply isn't affordable or cost-effective for the mid-market sector."

Xora StreetSmart leverages the advanced features of tablets, smartphones and wireless networks everywhere to help businesses empower their "always mobile" workers and improve how they manage their operations in the field. Xora StreetSmart combines tightly integrated location wareness with mobile forms and a job-workflow engine to provide solutions that help companies save time, save money and grow their businesses.

Optional integration with a cloud-based model makes Xora StreetSmart deployment easy and cost-effective for any organization. Optional integration with back-office systems ensures end-to-end automation of business processes. Average cost is less than $1 per user per day.

At an awards ceremony at the International CES (News - Alert) show in Las Vegas, Dr. Purdy congratulated Xora StreetSmart for providing the market with an outstanding product and service.

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.
