The Intelligent Transportation Era Is Here

Over the last several years, tech industry pundits have been predicting that the Internet of Things (IoT) will take over the transportation industry. It’s always been a matter of when, not if, this will happen.

Just recently, the New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) selected two companies — Tilson and Mobility Tech — to manage the design and build of an Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) project along the F.E. Everett Turnpike.

What WebRTC Enables

By Manoj Jain, Chief Operating Officer, Bankai

Web real-time communication (WebRTC) has the potential to transform the World Wide Web by embedding peer-to-peer sharing applications into browsers and enabling live video streaming over mobile phones. WebRTC is fully supported by Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, for example, thereby enabling websites to become service providers. While this situation could increase competition for voice carriers, it also provides additional revenue opportunities for entrenched carriers via unified communication services (UCS), mobile text, video and voice services, and WebRTC, both as a platform and for WebRTC termination to PSTN and mobile networks.

WebRTC is simple to deploy via JavaScript code on any device that can run a web browser.  WebRTC provides an IP-based open source application program interface (API), and depending on one’s point of view, can be compatible or competitive with VoIP. WebRTC is only available through browsers, while VoIP can be used over several protocols. More importantly, WebRTC enables web developers to build VoIP into their web-based applications. WebRTC and VoIP can be used concurrently, and WebRTC allows developers to embed VoIP service directly into a web browser.

Expanding Your Data Center?

Expanding a data center can be a stressful undertaking, especially when it comes to complicated merger and acquisition activities. It pays to have access to a team of experts to oversee the project every step of the way.

One company offering this service is Competitive Telecoms Group (CTG), which is one of the leading consulting and recruiting companies in the telecommunications and data center space. CTG now has nearly 100 global carrier and data center clients, and recently expanded its consulting group with the appointment of industry veteran Larry Fisher to the role of Vice President, Consulting Services.
