Finding a Psychologist in Fort Lauderdale is Now Easier with Video Consultation Website Webponder.com

Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Apr 11, 2013 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) -- Webponder.com, an online advice website, is trying to make finding a psychologist in Fort Lauderdale, and obtaining online counseling, an easier and more efficient process. Webponder is a website where people go to get advice and expertise online through live video chats with experts and professionals in a variety of fields.

Webponder provides those looking for therapy with an option other than meeting with a therapist in person, counseling with an online therapist. There are online counselors who have years of experience in, and focus portions of their practice on, providing mental health therapy online to those in need.

Online therapy initially started with email therapy, where the client and therapist would communicate through email, and then evolved into therapy through live video chat as video streaming applications became more prevalent and reliable. Now, although it is more common than it has ever been, only a percentage of licensed mental health professionals offer online services.

Although visitors to Webponder can find experts offering advice in hundreds of different areas of expertise, mental health is one of the more popular subjects on Webponder. Other popular areas of interest include free lawyer advice, auto expert advice, and advice about changing technology. Although the experts charge a rate that they choose for the video consultations, many experts offer an initial consultation at no charge. For example, a lawyer may elect to offer free legal advice to someone trying to get an explanation as to how to fight a traffic ticket, what to do if they are in a car accident, or how do you sue someone.

Webponder was founded in Miami, Florida in 2012, and is now seeking psychologists, licensed clinical therapists, and other mental health professionals in the Broward County area, as well as other locations throughout the country, to be listed on Webponder.com. Inquiries on how to join Webponder as an online mental health professional can be directed to Webponder Managing Director and co-founder Steve Thompson at (305) 373-7775.

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.

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.
