Baucus, Tester Secure High-Speed Internet Access for 4,500 New Businesses, Households in Ravalli County

(Targeted News Service Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) WASHINGTON, Dec. 17 -- The office of Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., issued the following news release: Senators Max Baucus and Jon Tester recently secured new high-speed internet access for 4,500 new businesses and homes in Ravalli County.

The Senators successfully pushed the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to provide support enabling local phone and internet carriers to expand high-speed internet - known as broadband - to underserved communities throughout Montana. Prior to the Senators' urging, the FCC were not providing enough support to continue the statewide project.

The majority of the FCC's support in Montana will help CenturyLink expand broadband in Ravalli County.

"Access to reliable, high-speed internet supports good-paying Montana jobs by helping our families, students, farmers, ranchers and small businesses compete globally," Baucus said. "The FCC and CenturyLink working together is a victory for rural Montana and I'm committed to bridging the digital divide to make sure all Montanan's have the high-speed internet they need." "High-speed internet strengthens rural communities by making it easier for Montanans to get the information they need to take care of their families and connect to the global marketplace," Tester said. "I'm glad the FCC and Century Link worked together to support Montana families and grow our economy, and I will keep fighting to get all Montanans reliable access to high-speed internet." "CenturyLink is excited to be able to bring broadband to unserved homes and businesses across rural Montana, where high-speed Internet service would not be economically feasible without public-private programs like the FCC's Connect America Fund," said Jeremy Ferkin, CenturyLink's vice president and general manager for Montana and Wyoming. "We're focused on expanding our local broadband service because we recognize it will help bring more essential educational and economic opportunities to our home state residents and businesses."

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.
