Machine-to-Machine Technology get Visible: AT&T and Axeda to Offer Wireless Console to Better Manage Global M2M Connections; Government Contractor Manages Thousands of Global Assets in Real-Time

(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Dallas , Texas - AT&T and Axeda are now making it easier for businesses to remotely manage and monitor their global machine-to-machine connections with a new central reporting wireless console available with the AT&T M2M Application Platform powered by Axeda.

SAIC, a FORTUNE 500 scientific, engineering, and technology applications company, is utilizing one platform for easier activation and deactivation of device SIMs, better management of security plans with real-time remote asset alerts and alarms, and application extension through the use of SIM-based logic.

For SAIC, this means assets from around the world can be viewed and managed from their U.S. facilities via a highly-secure cloud service that includes the AT&T high speed mobile network with global roaming, and the AT&T M2M Application Platform powered by Axeda. The AT&T and Axeda integration allows for highly secure communication from wireless devices to the Axeda Machine Cloud and to customer systems.

"We are able to authenticate, locate and track our assets as they move through potentially dangerous areas," said George Walther-Meade, a client services director at SAIC. "We have the ability to detect and control asset activity across broad geographies and to set advanced alerting and alarms on one or even 1,000 devices. This real-time visibility improves security and asset management, benefitting our machines, processes and decisions." Making M2M connectivity easy to manage and monitor in real-time for our customers is key," said Chris Hill, Senior Vice President, Advanced Solutions, AT&T Business Solutions. "Our collaboration with Axeda is a great example of our connected vision at work in the field, impacting how a company can monitor assets no matter where they are in the world." Developed to allow governments and business of all sizes to take control of connected products and assets, the wireless console is available now in Axeda 6.5 . The Axeda Machine Cloud provides advanced cloud-based software for managing connected products and implementing innovative M2M applications.

"We have evolved our market-leading portfolio to meet our customers' needs to take control of their connected product initiatives," said Bill Zujewski, executive vice president for strategy and product marketing at Axeda. "Our latest offering is another step to provide customers with everything they need to transform the way they interact and receive value from connected assets."

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.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER

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.

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.
