webRegistry Phase 3 Cutover Date Scheduled for October 15, 2013

Minneapolis, MN, Sep 25, 2013 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) -- NAESB, WECC, and OATI have announced the first Phase 3 cutover date from the WECC Registry to the webRegistry for October 15, 2013.

Entities with Transmission Path and Adjacency Data registered in the WECC Registry must have all data reviewed and re-registered in OATI webRegistry prior to October 11, 2013 to be included in the active publication on October 15, 2013.

On October 15, 2013, the WECC Registry will be officially retired. Data re-registered before October 15, 2013 will be maintained in both the WECC Registry and OATI webRegistry until that date. This is part of the OATI webRegistry (Electric Industry Registry [EIR] implementation) Phase 3 transition.

OATI webRegistry Phase 3 will impact entities in the Western Interconnection, as well as those entities conducting business with the Western Interconnection. Application Service Providers who currently utilize the WECC Registry will also be impacted.

webRegistry Phase 3 also includes the retirement of the CSV and MDB publication file formats and transition to XML publication file format. This will impact all OATI webRegistry users currently relying on the CSV and MDB files. These activities will take place on October 29, 2013.

The NAESB owned EIR business process replaced the NERC TSIN registry business process in November 2012. The registry serves as the central repository for information within the electric industry. OATI webRegistry provides the functionality that implements the EIR business process. OATI is the NAESB chosen system administrator.

For any questions on how to re-register data in OATI webRegistry, please contact OATI Support at 763.201.2020 or support(at)oati(dot)net.

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.

Featured Whitepapers

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.


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.
