Telematics Update: NHTSA Announcement to Cause Vehicle Communications Market Explosion

(PR Web Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) (PRWEB) February 10, 2014 The much-anticipated announcement will no doubt be welcomed by the automotive safety industry that has been waiting for a signal to stride ahead with these advanced communications technologies. The announcement details the next steps for NHTSA and their intentions to mandate the technology with the power to save lives on the roads.

David McNamara, president of McNamara Technology Solutions, a consulting expert on active safety and wireless technology, noted the positive message in the announcement saying: ‘This is indeed encouraging. Since 2003 I have followed and participated in the development of DSRC and these important safety and mobility apps. The key statement is that "NHTSA will then begin working on a regulatory proposal that would require V2V devices in new vehicles in a future year, consistent with applicable legal requirements, Executive Orders, and guidance."...In my opinion the key word in the statement is "require V2V devices". Like all policy and regulatory action the "devil will be in the details", and it will be important to see at what pace in which the details are made know to us.’ With regulation now clearly on the horizon it is time to prepare your strategy for this rapidly expanding market. Telematics Update’s Advanced Automotive Safety USA 2014 (July 8-9, 2014, Novi, Michigan) conference will provide all the knowledge and insight to enable you to capitalize on this inevitable explosion of industry activity. Forming new partnerships, understanding key opportunities and challenges and aligning your product with regulatory procedure are integral to ROI success.

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.
