WebRTC Summit | Robust Carrier Grade WebRTC Service
Oracle’s Douglas Tait discusses how WebRTC service handles security, reliability & interoperability within browsers & networks

Slide Deck: Robust Carrier Grade WebRTC Service

Consumers have higher expectations of their telephony experience than they do of a web browsing experience. They expect the phone to connect instantly with minimal disruptions. The phone is already secure and phone numbers are used to make connections. Subscribers expect their phone service to work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. Subscribers will expect WebRTC into the enterprise to behave in the same manner.

In his session at WebRTC Summit, Douglas Tait, Global Director of Marketing for Telecommunications at Oracle, looked at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC service and covered how a WebRTC service handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

[continued]

Interoperable WebRTC and Why It Is Important
By Peter Dunkley

There are many potential applications for WebRTC and for many interoperability is not a requirement. However, this does not mean that there is not a need for interoperability, particularly at the signaling level, for other applications.

Many people have dismissed interoperability as a consideration when using WebRTC - often due to the fact that their favoured use-cases do not require it (and in some cases are even hampered by it). In his session at 2nd WebRTC Summit, Peter Dunkley, Technical Director, at Crocodile RCS, will look at the other side and discuss the case for interoperability and explain how WebRTC can be used to enhance and extend existing services in a way provides benefits to service providers and their customers.

He will conclude with a look at some of the open-source options available today for building interoperable WebRTC applications. [continued]

Speaker Bio: Peter Dunkley is Technical Director at Acision. He graduated from The University of Edinburgh in 2000 with a BSc (Hons) in Computer Science. After graduation Peter worked on a PSTN switch developing signalling stacks for SS7, ISDN and similar protocols and creating advanced routing and service applications. Since 2005 he has worked mainly with SIP first leading a team developing a PSTN gateway and then managing the development of a SIP Application Server. Peter joined Crocodile RCS in September 2010 and has made numerous contributions to the Kamailio open source SIP Router project (particularly in the areas of presence, WebSocket, MSRP, and SIP Outbound) since then. Peter is one of the authors of the MSRP over WebSocket draft (draft-pd-dispatch-msrp-websocket) and is a contributor to several open-source projects. [continued]

Is WebRTC a Second Stage Engine in the Telehealth Rocket?
By Ivelin Ivanov

Telehealth legislation opened the floodgates for investment in modern communications services and APIs since 2010. WebRTC promises a second revolution. Ivelin Ivanov will discuss a real-world example where telephony APIs make a difference in improving patient care and reducing healthcare costs. He will then look into a brighter telehealth future with secure, high quality, ubiquitous WebRTC video interactions.
[continued]

Speaker Bio: Ivelin Ivanov is a technology entrepreneur who founded Mobicents, an Open Source VoIP Platform, to help create, deploy, and manage applications integrating voice, video and data. He is the co-founder of TeleStax, an Open Source Cloud Communications company that helps the shift from legacy IN/SS7 telco networks to IP-based cloud comms. An early investor in multiple start-ups, he still finds time to code for his companies and contribute to open source projects. [continued]

Matrix: the missing signaling layer for WebRTC?
By Mathew Hodgson

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations. [continued]

Speaker Bio:Matthew Hodgson is technical co-founder of the Matrix.org: a not-for-profit organization focused on solving the problem of fragmentation in current VoIP and IP Messaging applications. By defining a new lightweight pragmatic open standard for federation and interoperability and releasing opensource reference implementations, Matrix hopes to create a new ecosystem that makes real-time-communication as universal and interoperable as email. [continued]

WebRTC and the Customer Experience
By Keith McFarlane

In this session, Keith McFarlane, Chief Technology Officer, Cloud Platforms & Telephony at LiveOps, will share how WebRTC technology is truly the next stage in the globalization of the contact center, especially in the areas of monetization and creating a superior, personalized customer experience.

Over the past few years, the importance of a positive customer experience has risen and solidified itself as a major differentiation for brands. Meaning, companies today have to offer great service along with their products. WebRTC communications, combined with the cloud and building upon the foundation provided by VoIP and the Internet, is making a single network a reality by eliminating the need for the expensive servers, software, landlines and phones required by traditional contact center technologies. Customer service agents with WebRTC-enabled devices will be able to provide better customer experiences across all channels – including voice – and contact centers will continue to become even more streamlined, cost-efficient and productive than ever before. [continued]

Speaker Bio: At LiveOps, Keith McFarlane holds the role of Chief Technology Officer, Cloud Platform & Telephony. He has more than 20 years of experience designing and developing large-scale customer service solutions and CRM systems. He is an expert on the benefits of cloud computing technology for both enterprise and SMBs and was named to ExecRank's "Top CTO Rankings" list for 2012.

Prior to LiveOps, McFarlane worked for an on-premise contact center provider that is currently ranked number two among the top contact centers worldwide. It was there that he first began to realize the potential impact that cloud computing could have on the decades-old customer service contact center industry. He also realized that a software and hardware laden provider, such as his previous employer, would be challenged to move quickly into the cloud space. Making the move to LiveOps gave him the opportunity to be part of the team that developed the true cloud LiveOps Platform for enterprise use. Twelve years ago the LiveOps Platform was created for use only by the LiveOps community of 20,000 independent contractors to grow LiveOps' agent services business. In 2008, when McFarlane arrived at the company, LiveOps began evolving the platform for individual sale and use by other companies with their own agents. Under McFarlane's guidance, LiveOps is continuing to make industry-firsts, including the first fully integrated multichannel plus social agent desktop. [continued]

How the Norwegian Red Cross built a video tutoring solution with WebRTC
By Svein Willassen

This is the story about how the Norwegian Red Cross used WebRTC to build a service that allow high school student to meet volunteer tutors and get help with their school assignments just by visiting a web page in their browser. The solution has greatly increased the reach of the tutoring service run by the Red Cross, allowing students to get the help they need without leaving their homes. [continued]

Speaker Bio: Svein Willassen is the founder and CTO of the leading WebRTC based video conferencing service appear.in. he is currently leading the on-going development of that service. Svein has a PhD in forensic computing and has worked extensively with forensic analysis of communication systems as well as development of communication services. [continued]

Visualizing WebRTC: A Social Experiment with Meta-Networking
By Sara Robertson

On her social media platform Melodramatic.com, with global reach and over 1,000 uniques daily, Sara Robertson released a WebRTC network that created a peer-to-peer connection between every visitor on every page load. Geographical location data and round-trip data transfer rates of each connection is collected, and augmented with known demographics about the visitors. Static assets are randomly selected for serving directly through this new meta-network, and user experience is carefully measured. When rendered in a real-time visualization, this data provides exciting insights into the limitations and potential for WebRTC as it applies to modern web infrastructures. [continued]

Speaker Bio: Sara is a technology generalist with experience in large platform implementations, high-scale/low-latency serving, cloud infrastructures, and big data strategies. She is VP of Technology for an online advertising company serving billions of impressions daily, and runs a social media website (melodramatic.com) that she uses as a playground for technical experimentation. [continued]

WebRTC – The SKYPE Killer and Cloud UC Enabler
By Vishal Brown

While affordable and convenient, Skype is not an acceptable platform for business communications. While it may suffice for personal use and even SMBs, enterprise organizations need more substantial services with the quality, security and interoperability to handle video conferencing smoothly around the globe. Contrarily, WebRTC has the potential to overcome the incompatibility issues that have plagued the UC market for many years, and now that the IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force) is driving the audio and video codec standards, they've already ratified the audio standards (i.e. Opus), and they're getting close to choosing the video standard - this is going to be big deal for UC this year. [continued]

Speaker Bio: Vishal has over 15 years of experience in focusing large enterprises on the key initiatives needed to improve communication within their organization. This includes not just implementing unified communication solutions, but also thought leadership and strategic planning, policies and procedures to make the initiative effective. [continued]

The Promise of a Paradigm Shift in B2C Customer Communications
By Tobias Goebel

WebRTC promises to make realtime communications so ubiquitous that whole new ways of how consumers interact with businesses, or with fellow consumers of the same business, will emerge. Outside of the RTC world, innovative companies like Amazon are already offering ways for customers to help themselves, or others. WebRTC will accelerate this trend. It will also impact the way how and when consumers reach out to the contact center, and vice versa. In this talk I will share ideas on what this paradigm shift in B2C customer communications will mean for the customer on the one hand, and the contact center on the other. [continued]

Speaker Bio: Tobias has over 10 years of experience in the IVR and contact center industry. As part of Aspect's product management and marketing team today, he works on defining the future of the mobile customer experience, which will incorporate channels such as mobile apps, SMS, voice, chat, social, and will address the customer holistically, taking the SoLoMoClo (Social, Local, Mobile, Cloud) trend into account. Tobias holds degrees in Computational Linguistics, Phonetics, and Computer Science from the universities of Bonn, Germany and Edinburgh, UK. [continued]

His focus is on combining web technologies with traditional telecom to create a new breed of unified communication that is easily accessible to the general consumer. With over a decade of experience in telecom and associated technologies, Evan is demonstrating the power of OSS to further human and machine-to-machine innovation. [continued]

WebRTC + IoT = Personalized Customer Service
By Peter Cornelius

Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model. It also ensured scalability and better service for customers, including MUY! Companies, one of the country's largest franchise restaurant companies with 232 Pizza Hut locations. This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT . Attendees will learn real-world benefits of WebRTC and explore future possibilities, as WebRTC and IoT intersect to improve customer service. [continued]

Speaker Bio:Peter Cornelius has spent the past 15 years designing and building large scale enterprise applications, predominantly focused on the call center space. In his role as Solution Architect at LiveOps he has designed and built platform components to allow the doubling of the number of registered agents along with dramatic improvements in stability and performance. He is currently working on the next generation of the LiveOps platform. [continued]

Spatial Teleconferencing With WebRTC
By Alan Kraemer

While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. [continued]

Speaker Bio:Alan Kraemer (CTO) has over 29 years of experience in a wide range of technology based fields. As Vice President of Engineering for Technology Marketing Inc., he and his team created the architecture for and designed a wide variety of computers and computer based products for major corporations including British Telecomms and Litton Industries. [continued]

The Industrial Internet and the Cloud: Challenges in the Road Ahead
By Dave Duggal

The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to Cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines & devices with Big Data and the Cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy. This session will focus on public-private work being done today to identify the IoT standards, architecture, frameworks and security needed to enable and accelerate the $32 trillion opportunity ahead. [continued]

Time Series Data in a Time Series World
By Jim Scott

The Internet-of-Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. Single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data will be discussed. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center OpenTSDB will be used as an example to explain some of these concepts including when to use different storage models. [continued]

Speaker Bio:Jim has held positions running Operations, Engineering, Architecture and QA teams in the Consumer Packaged Goods, Digital Advertising, Digital Mapping, Chemical and Pharmaceutical industries. Jim has built systems that handle more than 50 billion transactions per day and his work with high-throughput computing at Dow Chemical was a precursor to more standardized big data concepts like Hadoop. [continued]

The Edison Moment for the Internet of Me
By Abe Gong

Trick question: What did Thomas Edison do for the lightbulb? He didn't invent it—working lightbulbs existed in laboratories for 80 years before Edison arrived. Instead, Edison's team made electric light scalable. They turned a theoretical possibility into a daily, lived reality—for billions of people. [continued]

Speaker Bio: Abe was the first data scientist at Jawbone and the lead data scientist at Massive Health, where he built data systems to nudge people to form good habits and live healthier. He earned his PhD in Public Policy, Political Science, and Complex Systems at the University of Michigan. All told, Abe has worked as data scientist/statistical consultant in education, health, and public policy for over a decade. In previous lives, Abe has been a pollster, journalist, refugee, and amateur historian. He is now working on a stealth startup using connected devices to improve habits and relationships. [continued]

Manage Your Mesh
By Ryan Bagnulo

Code Halos – aka "digital fingerprints" - are the key organizing principle to understand a) how dumb things become smart and b) how to monetize this dynamic. In this session Ben Pring, Co-Director of Cognizant's Center for the Future of Work, will outline research, analysis and recommendations from his recently published book on this phenomena on the way leading edge organizations like GE and Disney are unlocking the IoT opportunity and what steps your organization should be taking to position itself for the next platform of digital competition. [continued]

Speaker Bio: Robert H. Brown is the global head of Cognizants CFoW market strategy and outreach for Business Process Services. He is specifically focused on Cognizant BPS thought leadership, brand development, and solutions orchestration, as well as collaboration with Cognizant senior executive clients and prospects. He resides in California. [continued]

Identity Management and WebRTC
By Peter Dunkley

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service - possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings - and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorisation, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) irreversibly encoded. This presentation looks at how this identity problem can be solved and discusses ways to use existing web identities for real-time communication. [continued]

Speaker Bio: Peter is Technical Director at Acision. He graduated from The University of Edinburgh in 2000 with a BSc (Hons) in Computer Science. After graduation Peter worked on a PSTN switch developing signalling stacks for SS7, ISDN and similar protocols and creating advanced routing and service applications. [continued]

WebRTC and Data Channels; the Innovation Within Disruption
By Alex Gouaillard

As a disruptive technology, Web Real-Time Communication (WebRTC), which is an emerging standard of web communications, is redefining how brands and consumers communicate in real time. The on-going narrative around WebRTC has largely been around incorporating video, audio and chat functions to apps. Alex will look at a fourth element - data channels - and talk about its potential to move WebRTC beyond browsers and into the internet of things. [continued]

Speaker Bio: A Frenchman who has relocated to Singapore, Alex is regarded as one of the pioneers of Web Real-Time Communication (WebRTC). He is a member of the W3C and IETF (which create and define the standards of this technology), and is an active participant in key WebRTC working groups and task forces. Alex holds two PhDs from INSA, France, and KEIO University, Japan. He has deep experience in communications, signal and image processing, and has established and led successful research groups at Caltech, Harvard, A*STAR.

Cloud computing seems to still be one of the reigning buzzwords in high-tech these days. Everything is either “in the cloud”, “powered by the cloud”, or some variation on the theme. I remember when hosted email was just that: hosted email. Today, such offerings are considered cloud offerings even though they have not changed in any substantive way since being first offered well over 15 years ago.

The premise of cloud is based, like other emergent technologies, at least partially on the notion of abstraction. Cloud providers are able to achieve what appears to be boundless compute, limitless storage and never-ending network capacity by being able to simply "plug and play" the hardware necessary to expand capacity when needed. Enterprises, too, looking to achieve similar capabilities are desirous of a means to achieve this level of simplicity of scale. And by desirous I mean "really, really, REALLY want" it. At least that's how I read the fact that the number one "emerging trend" iden...
For business leaders today, it’s not enough to drive company growth, seek competitive advantages and provide vision. In this era of advanced cyberattacks, executives also need to keep their companies’ data security strategies top of mind. The Ponemon Institute’s 2014 Cost of Data Breach Study reports that the average cost of a data breach to a company was $3.5 million, a 15 percent increase over last year.
Several current trends in cloud computing leading into 2015 actually exhibit a tension between themselves. One trend, a well-known fact that will continue in the New Year to a greater extent, is that enterprises are rapidly moving to the cloud because of its operational efficiencies. This now includes enterprise projects that have sensitive data. Unlike the early days of “The Cloud,” enterprises are now stepping up with some of their crown jewels. Industries that will accelerate adoption in the New Year are Healthcare, Insurance, Utilities, Finance, and to some extent Banking.

Recently Arista released a white paper surrounding the idea that having deeper buffers running within the network can help to alleviate the incast congestion patterns that can present when a large number of many-to-one connections are happening within a network. Also known as the TCP incast problem. They pointedly targeted Hadoop clusters, as the incast […]

Many workloads are already in the cloud: Most organizations today run at least some workloads in the cloud. For newer organizations, they will often run ALL of their workloads in the cloud. For cloud-based workloads, sending log data to a cloud-based logging provider is not quite as big a leap of faith as for those on prem. In fact it generally aligns quite closely to their requirements as there may be no outbound network costs, their logs may actually be in the same physical data center or geographical region, and they can be billed monthly - same as with their infrastructure costs.
(article written for the Scality blog) It has been six years since I wrote my first object storage blog, even though I didn’t mention object storage in that specific article.

Cloud computing is increasingly becoming part of the enterprise IT landscape. In fact, a recent cloud security survey conducted by HP reveals that 70 percent of all respondents say their company is using some form of the cloud. The study also found that cloud penetration jumps to 80 percent for enterprise-size organizations. With such dramatic growth figures, it is no wonder that enterprise companies are carefully reviewing cloud security policies’ implication on cloud data. Here’s another fact from that same survey: While more than half of those using the public cloud are confident that criti...
In late August, voke, Inc. debuted its “Market Snapshot Report: Virtual and Cloud-Based Labs,” about how companies of all sizes and levels of testing sophistication view, use and benefit from virtual and cloud-based development and testing technologies. The results were pretty amazing―even we were surprised! Among the many benefits the 503 participant companies (50% of which were U.S. based) cited, 53% saw reduced CAPEX (capital expenditures) from the use of virtual and cloud-based labs. Thirty-nine percent said they help eliminate defects prior to production, and 33% said they improve audi...
The book The Cyber Threat was written to provide business and government executives insight into the nature of the dynamic adversaries attacking our networks.
