APTelecom To Kick-Off 2014 'State of Subsea' Expert Event Series In Washington, D.C, On April 1st

Live streaming video, new corporate partners, global audience, interactive content and expert speaker sessions, to highlight first of series of 'State of Subsea' events in 2014 for leading facilities-based telecom consulting and service company

NEW YORK, Feb. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- APTelecom, a facilities-based telecom consulting and service company specializing in emerging markets, today announced that it will kick-off its 2014 lineup of 'State of Subsea' expert events in Washington, D.C., USA, on Tuesday, April 1st. The event will take place at the world-renowned Corcoran Gallery of Art, from 9 AM to 12 PM EST. The Corcoran is the oldest and largest non-federal art museum in the United States, and has achieved United States National Historic Landmark status.  

The event will be the second 'State of Subsea' expert event that APTelecom has hosted to date, and the first in the 2014 season.

Those who are not able to join in person are invited to attend online via live streaming video courtesy of SubTel Forum, the leading online magazine dedicated to the submarine cable industry, and the exclusive media partner of APTelecom's for the 'State of Subsea' series.

The inaugural 'State of Subsea' event, which took place from New York City in October 2013, generated overwhelmingly positive reviews from the hundreds of people who tuned in to the streaming video feed. The video broadcast had previously never been done before at a subsea industry event.  

For the upcoming 'State of Subsea' event in Washington, D.C., APTelecom welcomes its newest partner, Pacific Telecommunications Council (PTC), which will be supporting the event with a variety of interactive content, promotional efforts, and guest representatives. PTC is a globally respected organization for telecommunications and information and communication technology professionals with interests in the Asia-Pacific region. PTC is perhaps best known for its annual conference in Hawaii, which attracts thousands of telecommunications executives and thought leaders from across the world. 

"We are extremely pleased to usher in a new season of 'State of Subsea' expert events at the Corcoran Art Gallery in Washington, D.C.," said Sean Bergin, Co-Founder of APTelecom. "Alongside our partners SubTel Forum and PTC, we look forward to providing an innovative forum that all in the submarine cable industry can turn to for high-level insights, interactive content, and engaging discussions to drive new levels of collaboration across the entire sector."

The mission of the 'State of Subsea' events are to bring together an eclectic mix of executives, influencers, and leaders from all walks of the submarine cable and telecom industry to address the latest trends, and share expert insights and knowledge on the future of the industry.  The events are highlighted by special breakout panels with industry experts, moderated Q&A sessions, informational exchanges, roundtable discussions on emerging global economic market trends, lucky draws, and more. Complimentary breakfast will be provided to everyone in attendance, courtesy of APTelecom.

"Pacific Telecommunications Council is pleased to partner with APTelecom for their 'State of Subsea' events series," said Sharon Nakama, CEO of Pacific Telecommunications Council. "We look forward to launching this partnership with a successful event in Washington, D.C. that will further the discussions on a broad range of subsea industry topics, and continuing to support the series throughout 2014."

While the April 1st event in Washington, D.C., will kick-off the 2014 'State of Subsea' expert event series, additional events are expected to take place in San Francisco and other locations throughout the year.

"ReadyTalk is an audio and web video conferencing provider. We've really come to embrace WebRTC as the platform for our future of technology," explained Dan Cunningham, CTO of ReadyTalk, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at WebRTC Summit at 19th Cloud Expo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...
In his General Session at 16th Cloud Expo, David Shacochis, host of The Hybrid IT Files podcast and Vice President at CenturyLink, investigated three key trends of the “gigabit economy" though the story of a Fortune 500 communications company in transformation. Narrating how multi-modal hybrid IT, service automation, and agile delivery all intersect, he will cover the role of storytelling and empathy in achieving strategic alignment between the enterprise and its information technology.

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...

For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.
Things are changing so quickly in IoT that it would take a wizard to predict which ecosystem will gain the most traction.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Adam Justice, vice president and general manager of Grid Connect, will review what happens when smart devices don’t work togethe...
