GPC Presents TransCore with Leadership in Sustainability Award

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. --(Business Wire)--

The Green Parking Council (GPC), which represents more than 31 prominent companies committed to pursuing environmentally beneficial choices in the parking industry, honored TransCore with one of its 2013 Leadership Awards recognizing the company's participation in the growth of the Green Parking Council.

Paul Wessel, executive director of GPC, explains, "We applaud and recognize TransCore for their commitment to GPC as a founding partner as we strive to transform the face of the parking industry. TransCore's leadership developing the Green Calculator and providing quantifiable metrics serves as a role model for deploying smart parking technology."

The "Green Calculator" is an online tool to estimate carbon dioxide output at parking facilities by assessing traffic volume and average vehicle idle time. TransCore introduced the advanced Green Calculator during IPI's annual meeting so parking authorities and institutions could more directly evaluate the current state of their parking facility's environmental impact. The calculator can be acessed at http://www.transcore.com/carboncalculator/carboncalculator.html

"Throughout the world, college, corporate, and medical institutions as well as parking operators are increasingly aware of their responsibility to make technology choices for their facilities that reduce their carbon footprint and support responsible corporate citizenship," said David Tilley, TransCore's Director of RFID Parking Solutions, North America.

Wireless radio frequency identification (RFID) technology used for parking and access control, and also deployed for wireless payment of tolls throughout the country, allows vehicles to enter and exit parking garages virtually without stopping. By reducing idle times and significantly decreasing carbon emission output on a consistent basis can decrease idle times by an estimated 25-30 percent.

The Green Calculator helps parking facility owners and managers quickly assess their facility's emissions environment and make strategic decisions regarding access control technology that can improve air quality levels.

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.

Featured Whitepapers

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.
