Rep. Slaughter Congratulates Rochester-based Sydor Instruments on Federal Grant

(Targeted News Service Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) WASHINGTON, March 11 -- Rep. Louise M. Slaughter, D-N.Y. (25th CD), issued the following news release: Congresswoman Louise Slaughter (NY-25) announced today that Rochester-based Sydor Instruments, LLC (Sydor) has been awarded a $150,000 STTR Phase One grant. The grant will be used to fund development of a SpectroCCD X-Ray Camera for Energy Dispersive Spectrometers. Sydor's work to develop the camera will dovetail with the opening of the new NSLS II material accelerator at Brookhaven National Laboratory and will allow scientists there to investigate the interactions of materials at the atomic scale. The development of this ultra small pixel pitch CCD will allow the full power of the accelerator to be tapped.

"I strongly supported Sydor's application because I know that their engineers are the best-trained in the business, and the potential for this technology is enormous," said Slaughter. "Improved X-ray detection will lead to advances in key U.S. high tech industries such as thin films and energy storage devices. I look forward to Sydor's continuing contributions in this field." "We are very pleased with being awarded this STTR Phase One grant for our SpectroCCD X-ray Camera and would like to thank Congresswoman Slaughter for her strong support of Sydor Instruments throughout the grant process. This grant from the Department of Energy reinforces the significance of the technology. The STTR award will enable the commercial engineering needed to transition the concepts demonstrated at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) to the point that commercial detectors can be produced and made available to a broad community of researchers in order to support fundamental energy science. Sydor Instruments, in collaboration with LBNL, will produce a novel direct-detection, soft x-ray imaging camera with 5 to 10 times better spatial resolution than the current state-of-the-art. This will translate to faster and more accurate data collection in applications where data accuracy is paramount, " stated Michael Pavia, President of Sydor Instruments.

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.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

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.
