Etisalat to Host M2M Middle East Forum 2013 [Emirates News Agency (WAM) (United Arab Emirates)]

(Emirates News Agency (WAM) (United Arab Emirates) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) ABU DHABI, 25th August, 2013 /WAM/ -- Etisalat, one of the largest telecom operators in the Middle East and Africa, today announced that it will introduce the first large-scale discussion platform on machine-to-machine /M2M/ technology to the UAE by hosting the M2M Middle East Forum 2013 in Dubai on September 22nd and 23rd.

Speaking on their participation, Abdullah Hashim, Senior Vice President of ICT, Etisalat, said, "We are leading the UAE market by providing connectivity and advanced M2M solutions, thanks to our 3G network and our M2M Control Center. As the next step, we introduced this event to the UAE to provide a stage for discussion and action. Bringing together leading global and international players in the market will help inspire new revenue streams for users of M2M in the UAE." Etisalat s focus on M2M solutions has led to the success of several initiatives that will be discussed during the keynote speech at the event: "Driving Sustainable M2M Solutions in UAE".

Etisalat s energy management program Emirates Energy Star, a successful example of M2M solution deployment, has already registered significant energy savings and CO2 reduction across 82 buildings in the UAE, which has resulted in savings of AED 11,365,434 for the government in less than 2 years.

Etisalat recently launched the M2M Control Centre, which allows enterprise customers to activate, manage and rapidly scale connected device businesses or deployments. The M2M Control Center will especially benefit businesses in vertical markets such as construction, infrastructure, retail and oil and gas. Etisalat has also developed fleet management solutions for several customers.

Through M2M communication, devices can exchange data automatically in real time without human intervention. This can drive innovation, create new revenue streams, shorten product cycles, increase agility and reduce costs. The reduction of energy costs as a result of this is also aligned with Etisalat s focus on a sustainable future for the UAE.

The two-day M2M Middle East Forum 2013, organized by DMG events, is expected to bring international enterprise leaders and M2M solution providers to share knowledge and explore new solutions that address industry challenges, improve enterprise operations and create a competitive edge. Discussion topics will include smart cities, smart enterprises, smart governance, smart grids, smart metering, remote monitoring, smart healthcare, security and smart retailing.

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.

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.
