Global MobileTech, a Web and mobile communications service provider in Asia, yesterday launched a new stress test for its WebRTC-based multimedia communications portal, Cliq2Talk. The first of two planned stress tests, this first test involves select participants from the company's global VoIP users and will run through until March 12.
The goal with this test is to determine Cliq2Talk's usability, while the second test — scheduled to run from March 15 until March 31 — will assess how well the portal's servers handle high amounts of traffic.
"The stress tests are important milestones for us as we enter the final stages in the commercial launch of Cliq2Talk," said Aris Bernawi, chairman and CEO at Global MobileTech, in a statement. "Our goal is to create the best multimedia communication experience to our users and building on everything we have learned from the licensing of our current mobile VoIP applications."
Cliq2Talk is currently only available for desktop users — in fact, it is currently limited to Google Chrome version 24 or higher — but mobile versions for both Android and iOS are expected in the fourth quarter of the year.
Based on WebRTC, Global MobileTech's communications portal therefore offers the ability to make real-time video calls directly from a compatible browser, record and send video, connect with friends via Facebook and Twitter, screen share when presenting with PowerPoint, capture and send screenshots while conducting a video call, and even play games with friends.
"Our desktop Cliq2Talk is a precursor to the release of iOS and Android versions for mobile devices during Q4, 2013," added Bernawi. "We are expecting Cliq2Talk to be a game changer for Global MobileTech that will elevate the Company from a regional to a global player in the multimedia communication industry."
Earlier this month, Global MobileTech released the results of its second fiscal quarter of 2013, reporting a 3-percent increase in revenue year over year, hitting $4.5 million with a net income of $381,000.
