WebRTC Summit | Robust Carrier Grade WebRTC Service

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.

WebRTC Summit | Interoperable WebRTC and Why It Is Important

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 buildi... (more)

Leading companies, from the Global Fortune 500 to the smallest companies, are adopting hybrid cloud as the path to business advantage.

Imagine if you will, a retail floor so densely packed with sensors that they can pick up the movements of insects scurrying across a store aisle. Or a component of a piece of factory equipment so well-instrumented that its digital twin provides resolution down to the micrometer.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer. We are subject to the constraint that the applications be signed and deployed so that they can be run in a trusted environment (i.e., outside of the sandbox). Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Digital Transformation (DX) is not a "one-size-fits all" strategy. Each organization needs to develop its own unique, long-term DX plan.

In her general session at 21st Cloud Expo, Rebecca Wanta explained how the strategy must focus on DX and include a commitment from top management to create great IT jobs, monitor ...

Forrester Research has predicted the IoT will become “the backbone” of customer value as it continues to grow. It is no surprise that retail is ...

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it?
