Microsoft's (News - Alert) recommendation for VVoIP (Voice and Video over IP) is not compatible with Google's products for browsers, according to SPIRIT DSP, a voice and video over IP software engines provider serving more than 1 billion users in over 100 countries.
SPIRIT DSP (News - Alert) also said that Microsoft's recommendation for VVoIP (Voice and Video over IP) is not compatible with the corresponding WebRTC specification offered by Google (News - Alert).
“The fundamental conflict between Microsoft and Google strengthens Apple's proprietary and incompatible FaceTime VVoIP platform, as well as SPIRIT DSP's standards-based HD-voice and video software engines that are being licensed to telcos, video-soft-phone application developers and mobile OEMs,” said SPIRIT's Chairman Andrew Sviridenko.
In August, Microsoft announced its own CU-RTC-Web recommendation for the W3C WebRTC working group, which focuses on a common API to unify real-time P2P communications for Web browsers.
Both Microsoft and Google offer non-standard VVoIP protocol stack software and incompatible communication products and services that work only within their own eco-systems.
SPIRIT DSP notes the problem associated with making an HD call from Skype (News - Alert) to Google Voice & Video Chat or Hangouts without downgrading quality to PSTN.
Microsoft is also not able to make its own Lync engine compatible with the lately acquired Skype.
“Telcos now strive to develop their own VVoIP services and are not interested in domination of Microsoft or Google VVoIP technologies on their native grounds,” added Sviridenko.
SPIRIT DSP adds that today telecom providers want their services to work on all popular smartphones and tablets, OSs and browsers, and SPIRIT is the only vendor providing such full compatibility in robust HD quality.
SPIRIT DSP was in news last month when the company achieved record sales revenue growth of 80 percent for the first six months of 2012 over the first half of 2011.
