VoIP provider Sonus Networks (News - Alert) recently rolled out updates to its WebRTC solution, giving users better security options and mobile features for enterprise customers.
The update, WebRTC Services Solution 1.1, includes added authentication, which means that users utilizing WebRTC for social media don’t have to worry about security risks; information is transferred without it falling through the cracks.
Release 1.1 also allows WebRTC Services Solution to run in Amazon and Google (News - Alert) public Cloud environments, making it possible to use the scale and network efficiencies of public Cloud providers. Sonus also made enhancements to its iOS, Android (News - Alert) and .net SDK library support, and it now provides support for 97 percent of mobile devices and increases support of major Cloud environments.
"With Sonus' WebRTC Services Solution, we developed a software offering to create secure and intelligent click-to-connect mobile applications and services," said Tony Scarfo, Sonus EVP of Services, Product Management and Corporate Development. "Release 1.1 enables Sonus customers to take the next step in the evolution of WebRTC so they have the technology that more seamlessly integrates into their network architectures."
Sonus is no stranger to WebRTC; it wasn’t all that long ago that the VoIP provider released its reference book, “WebRTC for Dummies.” The guide offers a look at WebRTC and how it differs from other communication methods and how it can not only generate revenue, but lend a hand in customer retention.
"For many use-cases, WebRTC deployment is occurring in parallel with other communications-industry megatrends, especially the move to cloud-based platforms and the use of mobile devices," said Dean Bubley (News - Alert), founder and director of Disruptive Analysis. "We also see cases where voice/video is embedded inside messaging-centric 'workstream' applications. It is encouraging to see more vendors support WebRTC integration with iOS, Android and important public cloud platforms."
Web RTC enables applications to use the power of the Web to make real-time voice and video connections to other WebRTC devices, or traditional VoIP and video devices through mediation elements that can interface with the existing infrastructure. Considered to be a truly innovative technology, business opportunities that did not exist yesterday are suddenly here today because of WebRTC.
