Comverse Woos with WebRTC Gateway


WebRTC is finding its way into various nooks and crannies of the enterprise, as innovative vendor offerings make the process of embedding voice and video communications into the Web browser a seamless and user friendly reality. One company that is accelerating WebRTC implementation for service providers and the enterprise is Comverse, with its unique WebRTC Gateway solution that efficiently and simply enables IP-based services from the Web browser.

Recently announced by TMC and presented by INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine and WebRTC World, The Comverse WebRTC Gateway was given the 2015 product of the year award. This award celebrates the pioneers of this burgeoning space, who are driving greater awareness and adoption of WebRTC innovation with each solution they create.

Director, Product Marketing Digital Services for Mobile Operators at Comverse Mohan Palat told TMC “This award is a recognition by the industry that Comverse has a functionally rich WebRTC Gateway that offers exceptional value to customers.”

TMC CEO Rich Tehrani noted, "Through advanced technology initiatives, it's leaders like Comverse who are spearheading the enablement of telcos and enterprises to meet the rapid growth of consumer demands for the next generation of video, voice and P2P file sharing."

The Comverse WebRTC Gateway solution (from its acquisition of Solaiemes in August 2014) acts as a SIP endpoint in the network, so all SIP traffic from the network is terminated at the gateway and then converted to HTTP for delivery to the client or endpoint. The advantage to this is that there are no telco protocols (i.e. SIP) required in the browser and can be used with WebRTC devices without traditional support for SIP, namely set-top boxes, televisions, etc. It also provides increased security by isolating Web credentials from the telco credentials.

By combining RCS and WebRTC functionality, the Comverse solution enables innovative IP-based services. 

Building on its 2014 product of the year award for its Evolved Communication Suite (ECS), Comverse combines RCS services such as messaging, chat, audio and video with WebRTC. It is able to offer RCS functionality to WebRTC endpoints—making for some innovative use cases.

Comverse is committed to ushering in the fourth wave in digital experiences by offering service providers new revenue streams and engagement tools. WebRTC, in its short history has come a long way, but this adolescent technology still has a ways to go before mainstream status. Comverse will be riding the fourth wave when it does; will you?
