WebRTC Conference & Expo to Feature Keynote by Plantronics CTO


According to many industry experts, Web-based real-time communications is the next hot technology that will allow people to connect with one another virtually. Launched right through your browser, WebRTC technology could allow you to video chat with a friend who happens to be browsing the same subreddit as you, or get a face-to-face conversation with a contact center rep who can answer your technical questions. The possibilities are endless.

This fall, the WebRTC Conference and Expo will focus on this exciting technology. The event will be held at the South San Francisco Conference Center from November 27 to 29, and will be an opportunity for architects, enablers and practitioners of WebRTC to get together and discuss the innovations and applications of WebRTC.

At the event, Joe Burton, the chief technology officer at Plantronics, will deliver a keynote address. “WebRTC is a key technology for Plantronics,” said Burton in a statement. “In 2016, there will be over 4 billion smart IP connected personal devices and WebRTC has the potential to make each a powerful communications end point for video, audio, text and information. With the simple communications integration and open standards, WebRTC will create an explosion in collaboration and new applications,” noted Joe Burton, senior vice president and CTO at Plantronics. “As a leader in optimizing the audio communications experience, Plantronics sees WebRTC dramatically increasing the need for integrated personal audio devices to enable this communication.” 

Among the sponsors of the WebRTC event are Google, Plantronics, Thrupoint, Zingaya and AddLive.

“WebRTC is rapidly transforming how people and businesses communicate, which has led to an enhanced user experience, lower costs and higher ease of use,” added Rich Tehrani, CEO of TMC and Conference Chairman. “We’re pleased to welcome Mr. Burton and Plantronics to discuss this change and ever evolving web and communications landscape with the WebRTC Conference and Expo participants.”
