WebRTC1Writing a piece for NoJitter, independent WebRTC consultant Tsahi Levent-Levi says that WebRTC is here to stay and there’s plenty of evidence it’s ready for prime time.

He says for all the hype around WebRTC – an API definition drafted by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) that supports browser-to-browser applications for voice calling, video chat and P2P file sharing without the need of either internal or external plug-ins – it is justified when you look at the big names now using the protocol including, but not limited, to:

  • Google
  • AT&T
  • Cisco
  • Microsoft
  • Facebook

There’s some big players on that list and it keeps on growing. The recent WebRTC Global Summit in London brought all parts of the ecosystem together, including telcos, mobile operators, OTT and VoIP players, developers, enterprises and analysts. The event looked at how WebRTC can move forward and the commercial opportunities it holds, as well as early adopter lessons and developments.

Here at SmartIPX we’ve written about WebRTC previously and we welcome the changes and challenges which come with new protocols. WebRTC is here to stay and the events of the last half year show its adoption by every type of organisation from B2B, B2C, consumer-focused vendors and start-ups. Each is making good use of the technology and interpreting it for their own needs.
