Cloud Telephony and Voice Over Web
Most IP traffic from fixed and mobile users goes to the Web using HTTP. The Web however does not support real-time interactive communications. How can these two worlds be integrated?
Two well-known VoIP industry and Internet experts, Henry Sinnreich and Alan Johnston provide an answer. The talk shows how existing SIP based communications can be ported to the web using existing IETF and W3C standards. They answer some questions, such as:• What inhibits Web application developers to embrace VoIP?• Why is the Web the natural home for all types of applications?• How to integrate communications and the Web?
The solution space includes such topics as:• Web and Internet technologies invented after the SIP protocol• In hindsight: Avoid porting SIP shortcomings to the Web• How to move SIP capabilities from the expensive VoIP infrastructure to HTTP clients and servers: The SIP API for Web communications.• Replacing the rather stale SDP protocol with standards based metadata• Is RTP really useful or can its information components be ported to a data application module, similar to SIP? Why then not just use UDP for interactive media packets?• Migration path and preserving existing complex telephony services, if so desired• How to develop high quality, secure Web communication software• Last but not least, how to delegate NAT traversal for VoIP and all other applications, including games, to the Host Identity Protocol (HIP).
The first step to deploying UC is to come up with defining what you are trying to accomplish. To many, it is another way of saying how they want to deploy Presence and have it integrated to the other major communications mediums voice, voice mail and email. Others want to accomplish this goal but also add the desire to extend this functionality out to wireless devices. Lastly, some organizations are looking at this deployment not as an end, but as a means to stepping into SOA and embedding all of these mediums within their key enterprise applications such as ERP systems.

As a PSTN replacement, one such service is SIP trunking which connects internal voice networks to external voice networks, using public broadband IP networks and VoIP technology in a flexible, cost effective way. SIP trunking now enjoys broad availability from service providers in many regions, including many incumbent PSTN service providers. But deploying a VoIP service is not necessarily a straight forward process.
This presentation explains six areas of consideration that may need to be addressed in the process to help assure a smooth deployment of a VoIP service such as SIP Trunking:

ICE is dedicated to producing optimized and effective components for use in production emergency calling environments of the future. NG9-1-1 Industry Collaboration Events will occur on a regular basis to ensure that vendors understand the requirements of the NG9-1-1 standards, processes and procedures being developed. They will also demonstrate vendors’ ability to manufacture and design robust and reliable solutions. The events will have three major goals. First, tests will determine the functionality of products against the i3 architecture and the ability of functional elements to inter-operate with other components. Second, the overall methodology will be refined. And third, it will provide a basis for experience and execution of future NG9-1-1 Industry Collaboration events. For each of these three goals, objectives will be developed and supporting tasks defined.
Bill Mertka, VP of Product Management for RedSky Technologies, served as the chair of both the NENA ICE1 and ICE2 Event Planning Committees and is currently the Vice-Chair of the ICE3 Event Planning Committee. Bill will be updating us on the progress made in NG9-1-1 interoperability testing over the past year, focusing on the successful ICE1 and ICE2 events that have been held. While early 2009 saw NENA and the rest of the industry working to establish a vendor solution testing regime, late 2009 saw the completion of the first ICE test, and 2010 will see two events. Bill will review what’s happened ICE process since last year, the vendor response to-date, and will also discuss some of the approaches being taken to insure the process will be a successful, repeatable one.
Bill serves as RedSky’s representative to relevant industry SDOs such as the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) and the Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS) and is a current member of the National Emergency Number Association (NENA).

This confusion clouds the service provider’s ability to reliably andefficiently assess the customer impact of network events. This impairedvisibility puts the customer relationship at risk and leads to higherservice warranty cost as new support systems and services must bedeployed to navigate the path from subscriber to service to underlyingresources and back. These service, quality and configurationmanagement systems chart and navigate courses based on the serviceprovisioning maps contained within the back office. Shifts in theservice and network terrain not captured in these maps reduce the valueof the maps and leads to perils such as revenue leaks. Maintainingaccurate maps requires the service provider to frequently coordinatesurveys of the service and network landscape leading to increasedoperating expenses.
Nowhere is there an understanding of the service and network landscapebetter than in its inhabiting resources. The back office provisioningmaps merely reflect what the service provider intended to create. Resources contain the direct or indirect path between themselves andthe subscribers in their configuration. Additionally the resourcesunderstand the navigational dependencies of that path. This data is thesource of truth about what services are available to subscribers and the resources leverage by each subscriber.

Web applications that require media processing and connection to any endpoint or device can be easily implemented without traditional telephony expertise by developing these applications with media servers that support Web-centric RESTful APIs. Example of applications that integrate web usage with mobile smart phone usage include voice and video enabling services such as click-to-call from cloud-based CRM systems, click-to-conference from social networking sites, and streaming of instructional video clips from customer content.
This presentation will provide brief overview of the media server market, depicting its evolution from Telco-centric to Web-centric media server usage, and will proceed with a review of Web-based service use cases and how Dialogic’s media server products with RESTful APIs enable web developers to more easily add voice and video to their applications. In this presentation, you will learn how: • The media server market is evolving to include web-centric development • Web-centric RESTful APIs enable media processing • Web applications can integrate voice and video using this approach • Developers can start developing applications immediately without investing in dedicated development resources • To draw more website traffic by bridging them with mobile networks • To potentially save costs by deploying in the cloud
With more than two decades of high-tech experience, Mr. Chapman has held positions in sales, product marketing and product management of carrier telephony products and enhanced services platforms at Raychem, MultiLink, SnowShore, Ubiquity, and Cantata.
