WebRTC Summit | Interoperable WebRTC and Why It Is Important
Crocodile RCS’s Peter Dunkley to discuss interoperability & explain how WebRTC can be used to enhance & extend existing services

Slide Deck: Interoperable WebRTC and Why It Is Important

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 favored use cases do not require it (and in some cases are even hampered by it).

In his session at WebRTC Summit, Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Crocodile RCS, looked at the other side and discussed the case for interoperability and explained how WebRTC can be used to enhance and extend existing services in a way provides benefits to service providers and their customers. He concluded with a look at some of the open-source options available today for building interoperable WebRTC applications.

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.

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]

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]

I love receiving gifts in the form of new insights! It doesn't matter if others received the same gift years ago and I am just getting it now. If it is new to me, I get excited. It is like waking up in the morning and discovering a new room in your house. I read an article by Thomas Friedman in the New York Times this weekend titled, "And Now for a Bit of Good News." The subject of the article was the new "sharing economy," think Uber, Lyft, Airbnb, etc. In the article, Friedman calls Airbnb a "Trust Platform." To me, this weekend, this term was a gift. He is so right. I have used Airbnb many times when traveling with my family, and to date have been very pleased with our experiences. Often the transactions are sizeable as I am reserving a home in a desirable location for a week. I am engaging in a transaction of some size with a person I don't know, in a home I have never visited, most often in a foreign country using different currency, involving different laws and customs. Why did I risk it? I trusted the platform.
Do you avoid stores that have had a credit card breach? You are not alone. About 52% of people avoid merchants who have had a data breach according to a recent Lowcards survey. They surveyed over 400 random consumers to better understand the impact of identity theft on consumer behavior. 17% said they or a family member was a victim of identity theft over the last year with half the cases being credit card theft. 94% said they are more concerned or equally concerned about ID theft. They estimate that there were 13.5 million cases of credit card identity theft in the United States over the last 12 months.
I like this word re-imagination from Mary Meeker’s Internet Trends presentation. We are seeing so many aspects of our life being transformed by the internet. Take for example, ordering a cab to go somewhere. Either we phone for a yellow cab here in California or if you are in New York city, then you stand and wave for an incoming yellow cab to stop. The new game-changer is Uber. All you do is touch your smartphone screen for UberX or Black car and you get an instant message about the car coming in less than 5 minutes time with the driver and car info. It is cheaper and you pay by card (pre-registered in your Uber account). This is re-imagining the transport sector. Uber, a San Francisco company is worth about $17B and is operating in 70 cities around the world. Quite a disruptive force!
If you've had to test one of today's composite applications, you know that "access" has become one of the most daunting barriers to SDLC acceleration. Whether we're talking about access to dev/test environments or access to dependent applications, the ability to pull all the required pieces together in order to test thoroughly is equivalent to herding feral cats. If you haven't experienced this fun firsthand, consider this: our recent research revealed that systems under test have an average of 30 dependencies, but team members have consistent access to only 6. The time available to access test environments is extremely limited (4 hour slots) and 30% of that limited time was consumed by configuration/setup tasks. Ultimately, testers had time to execute only 50% of the available test plan. Service virtualization is a revolutionary new technology that helps you break through these constraints by providing ubiquitous, global access to complete dev/test environments. Organizations leveraging service virtualization are able to conduct testing earlier, faster, more thoroughly, and more accurately—significantly reducing the risk of application failure. In case you're just starti...
Much has been published about the Open Compute Project. Initiated by Facebook, it has become an industry effort focused on standardization of many parts and components in the datacenter. Initially focused on racks, power and server design, it has also added storage and now networking to its fold. Its goal is fairly straightforward: “how can we design the most efficient compute infrastructure possible”, a direct quote from its web site. The focus of OCP has been mostly around hardware designs and specifications. If you look at the networking arm of OCP, you find several Top of Rack (ToR) ethernet switch hardware designs donated by the likes of Broadcom, Mellanox and Intel. By creating open specifications of hardware designs for fairly standard ethernet switches, the industry can standardize on these designs and economics of scale would drive down the cost to create and maintain this hardware. A noble goal and there are many opinions on both sides of this effort. Mostly referred to as “bare metal” and “commodity”, you can easily spend days reading up on many opinions. Mike Bushong yesterday discussed pricing implications for resellers in this blog post.
In a post Snowden world it is clear that for cloud data security, we need strong encryption. When properly implemented, encryption in the cloud reduces risk to levels acceptable for sensitive data. There is no doubt data protection in the cloud computing era is never going to be a ‘one size fits all’ kind of a solution. It requires a 360-degree view of the company with 365-days a year dedication. The best place to start is with a risk analysis so you know what kind of data you have, its levels of sensitivity, who’s using it, where it’s used and stored, and how and where and over what technologies it’s going to ‘commute’. You need to understand your company’s data – in terms of technology and human weaknesses. Data should be unreadable to an attacker. It must be incoherent at all times to anyone other than you and your trusted personnel: while it’s travelling – or you are; whether it’s in transit, storage, stopping, or resting, data is safest in encrypted form.
Some people are never satisfied. These fearless agents of change are everywhere. They're informed, confident and willing to experiment. They seek out the best business technology solution for the job at hand. They act on instinct. Yes, you could say that they're driven. However, they're also at risk of being labeled as "rogue employees" because they ordered a software-as-a-service (SaaS) offering and perhaps expensed it without prior approval. Sometimes they're the champion of progressive projects that are referred to as Shadow IT -- intentionally bypassing their company's formal evaluation and procurement process. How can this happen? Is it just because their activities are tolerated, or are they being encouraged? If so, by whom? Why would any business leader applaud a team member that breaks the rules? Maybe, the simple answer is that staying within the confines of the status-quo won't enable a top-performer to fully apply their talent, achieving their absolute best.

One of the primary principles of object-oriented programming (OOP) is encapsulation. Encapsulation is the way in which the state of an object is protected from manipulation in a way that is not consistent with the way the variable is intended to be manipulated. The variable (state) is made private, that is to say only the object itself can change it directly. Think of it as the difference between an automatic transmission and a standard (stick). With the latter, I can change gears whenever I see fit. The problem is that when I see fit may not be appropriate to the way in which the gears should be shifted. Which is how engines end up being redlined.
Cloud computing has finally come into its own. While we’ve been hearing for 8 years or more that cloud computing would one day take over the enterprise, the fact of the matter is that it’s been slow going. While the spread of cloud computing solutions hasn’t been as rapid as many early proponents predicted it would be, we are now to a place where cloud solutions are seen as viable for most organizations, and are being utilized regularly.
It's an application world; a world that is rapidly expanding. With new opportunities and markets arising driven by mobility and the Internet of Things, it is only going to keep expanding as applications are deployed to provision, license, and manage the growing sensors and devices in the hands of consumers. Applications are not isolated containers of functionality. No application winds up in production without a robust stack of resources and services to support it. Storage and compute, of course, are required, but so are the networking - both stateless and stateful - services that provide for scale, security and performance.
We're launching the "Tap In Open Forum": a new series of blog posts where we detail a current topic being discussed in the software development and testing community and invite you to participate in an open discussion with our best and brightest here at Skytap. Feel free to share your thoughts and we'll do the same! InformationWeek and IBM Mobile Technical Sales Leader Dustin Amrhein presented a webinar last week as part of their “DevOps Rado” series. The Frictionless Enterprise: Built for Business, looked at DevOps as a viable solution for removing the friction that prevents enterprises from innovating at not just the speed they would like, but at the speed absolutely required to stay relevant, and hopefully ahead of their competition.
Since the birth of Hadoop in 2005-06, the way we think about storing and processing information has evolved considerably. The term “Big Data” has become synonymous with this evolution. But still, many of our customers continue to ask, “What is Big Data?”, “What are its use cases?”, and “What is its business value?”. The Internet is overloaded with definitions, characteristics, and benefits; however, few discussions synthesize all three of these topics in one place. This paper answers these questions, and proposes a total cost calculation framework for CTOs and CIOs that are evaluating solutions for their organization’s use case(s). In the text below, I examine an on-premise Hadoop ecosystem as a general purpose Big Data solution in relation to alternative commercial purpose-built storage technologies (-e.g. Oracle, Teradata, IBM, SAP, Microsoft, EMC, etc). It may be difficult to determine the exact point at which you should leverage one over the other. It is my contention that when the total cost of using all your data exceeds what you are able to spend using purpose-built technologies, it is time to consider using a general purpose solution like Hadoop for process offloading....
Public cloud service adoption is already a mainstream phenomenon in most organizations. Meanwhile, many large enterprises see a private cloud in their future. But choosing whether to invest in building an internal cloud infrastructure or buy from a cloud service provider will become more challenging – in anticipation, savvy IT leaders are becoming brokers of dynamic business technology solutions.

Hybrid cloud resource management and progressive operational process adoption are the key focal points in preparation for this transition. Moreover, Line of Business demand for emerging use cases and just-in-time IT workload creation requires speedy access to a managed self-serve DevOps deployment model.

That’s why comprehensive management and provisioning tools -- such as Red Hat CloudForms -- have become essential platforms. Besides, given the pervasive trends in the marketplace, every business will eventually need an actionable hybrid cloud adopt...
