Quobis + WebRTC = A Match Made in Heaven


With the goal of assisting telecom operators and large network managers wishing to expand their footprints, privately-held Spanish company Quobis offers various products and consulting services closely tied to unified communications based on open standards. As the WebRTC space rapidly expands, the company has remained on the front line of innovation by focusing on shaping the individual strategies of service providers and traditional network equipment vendors looking to jump head first into this industry.

According to Yudani Riobó Gestido, innovation manager, Quobis, “We play a role helping them to implement different use cases (from simple click-to-call solutions to corporate Web communicators). In the near future, when aspects like authentication or security are going to be more relevant, Quobis wants to be a key element of solving these types of challenges.”

It was recently revealed that the company, founded back in 2006 would be attending the upcoming WebRTC Conference and Expo which is slated to take place from June 25-27, 2013 in the Cobb Galleria in Atlanta, Ga. During the expo, Quobis will show off the newly added features to its solution, SIPPO. SIPPO is the first fully-featured WebRTC-enabled enterprise communicator that comes complete with advanced capabilities, like presence, contact list, calls detail record, full screen, file  transfer and desktop sharing support and a really small footprint (with less than 300 Kb). Even better, SIPPO has already successfully passed interoperability tests with different WebRTC vendors using SIP over Websockets, API RESTs and other signaling methods. 

With over 30 live WebRTC demos taking place within a two night time span, the exciting event is highlighted as being a great opportunity where companies, Web application providers, investors and developers can link up, communicate and collaborate to better understand the vast potential WebRTC has, as well as best practices to overcome certain challenges it brings with it. In fact, it is vital for companies such as Quobis to attend this not-to-miss conference in order to hear and see first-hand how WebRTC is the future of communications.

When looking at current trends currently taking off within this vertical, “We think that the biggest impact is going to be within the enterprise use cases. WebRTC has some well known features like easy adoption, zero installation and multi-device support that will drive some new opportunities for residential users and consumers, but we like to focus on features like the possibility to interconnect legacy SIP or analog systems and that is not needed to update the endpoint. These are the key points to solve problems like those related to BYOD or teleworking, and to improve the overall communication path with customers,” Gestido added.

With WebRTC gaining followers by the day, increasingly strong competition between OTT services and traditional services providers is being seen. While OTT services do have the ability to launch new services in a short amount of time, telcos know the identity of users. Therefore, they should be able to address the demands of end-users in terms of mobility and multi-device availability with a business model that boasts recurrent revenues and is competitive by comparison with over-the-top companies.

He concluded, “Traditional vendors are going to be leaders in WebRTC to SIP interconnection, and we hope to find a space for small- and medium-sized companies as supplier of services for integration and development of turn-key solutions.”
