Turkmenistan takes one more step toward launching its first satellite [Times of Central Asia]

(Times of Central Asia Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) ASHGABAT (TCA) — Installation work has been completed on Turkmenistan's first-ever communication satellite due to be launched this year. The report on the creation of the national satellite was presented at a Turkmen government meeting chaired by President Gurbanguly Berdymukhammedov earlier this month.

"Installation work on the communication satellite TurkmenAlem 52.00E, installation of astronomical measuring instruments and communication equipment for all-day management of the satellite was completed, the inspection of the technical characteristics of satellite dishes was conducted," State News Agency of Turkmenistan (TDH) reported. The French firm Thales Alenia Space, the European leader in satellite systems, signed a contract with Turkmenistan's Ministry of Communication for the design, manufacture and delivery of the first Turkmenistan Telecommunication Satellite in 2011. The satellite will enable Turkmenistan to operate its first National System of Satellite Communications in order to secure and enhance the country's communication means.   The satellite will be based on Thales Alenia Space Spacebus C2 platform. The launch is scheduled for 2014 for a 15-year lifetime. The satellite, of around 10 KW power and above 4.5-ton launch mass, will carry Ku transponders covering large beams over Central Asia region, the French company said.  The California-based Space Exploration Technologies (SpaceX) has been awarded a contract with Thales Alenia Space to launch Turkmenistan's satellite to geostationary transfer orbit in late-2014 aboard a Falcon 9 rocket, the US company earlier said.If the project is successful, Turkmenistan will become the second nation in Central Asia to build and launch its own satellite. Neighboring Kazakhstan launched a Russian-made KazSat satellite in 2006 but lost communications with it in 2008. In 2011, it launched the KazSat-2 satellite, designed by Russia and equipped by France, EurasiaNet reported.

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.

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.
