NAACP to Co-Host March on Washington August 24th

(Targeted News Service Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) WASHINGTON, Aug. 15 -- The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) issued the following news release: Roslyn M. Brock, Chairman of NAACP Board of Directors; Benjamin Todd Jealous, NAACP President and CEO; Hilary O. Shelton, Director of the NAACP Washington Bureau and Senior Vice President for Advocacy and Policy; Dedrick Muhammad, Senior Director of Economic Programs for the NAACP; Sammie Dow, Director of the NAACP Youth and College Division WHAT: On Saturday, August 24, the NAACP will march on the National Mall for the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington. NAACP leaders will be available for comment in the weeks before and after the march. For interview requests, please contact Michelle Nealy at (443)562-4233 or Ben Wrobel at (917) 846-0658. Press inquiries will be honored on a first call, first serve basis.

Fifty years after Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., delivered his historic "I Have a Dream" speech, leaders from civil rights, organized labor, housing, media, education and politics will once again convene in the nation's capital to urge Congress to create more jobs, protect voting rights, and to address the litany of recent attacks on immigration and workers' rights.

"If this year has shown us anything, it's that the work of the 1963 march is not yet finished," stated Jealous. "Voting rights are under attack, black unemployment continues to soar and thousands of black children are living in impoverished neighborhoods and attending segregated schools. Black youth are being gunned down each and every day in senseless acts of violence. Trayvon Martin lies in the ground after one such senseless act." WHEN/WHERE: March on Washington - Saturday, August 24 Rally at the Lincoln Memorial begins at 8 a.m. followed by march to the King Memorial.

March Route: * Down Daniel French Drive to the southern portion of Independence Ave.

* We will march down Independence Ave. to the King Memorial.

* The King Memorial is the official dispersal point. Once there, marchers will be told to go to their buses or the Global Freedom Festival.

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.
