Sangoma's Nenad Corbic to Talk SDKs Advantages with WebRTC at Upcoming Conference

WebRTC (Web-based real-time communication) is a standardization effort that is being driven by the IETF and W3C to embed a real-time media engine into Web browsers and applications.  It enables Web applications to leverage browsers to make rapid voice and video connections to other WebRTC devices or traditional VoIP and video devices through mediation elements that can interface WebRTC with the existing infrastructure.

There are already several implementations allowing rich communications using audio, video or any collaboration, but they are not interoperable because they require non-standard extensions or plug-ins to work. So, WebRTC will solve this issue of interoperability. 

At the upcoming WebRTC Conference and Expo, Nenad Corbic, vice president of Software Engineering at Sangoma Technologies Corporation, a provider of hardware and software components that enable or enhance IP communications systems for voice and data, will be discussing  how WebRTC can help developers.

WebRTC allows developers to create platform independent applications that don’t rely on complicated plug-ins. As a an open source project with a focus on adding real-time communications to Web browsers, WebRTC implements open standards for real-time, plug-in-free video, audio and data communication within Google, Mozilla and Opera browsers.

“WebRTC is the latest technology that our products will connect with, and offers enormous potential for simplifying the addition of WebRTC components to IP communications landscape," said Corbic, in a statement. “WebRTC offers Sangoma an opportunity to reaffirm its leadership in the marketplace through providing innovative products that will connect WebRTC-based products to the rest of the network.”

Sangoma, a Silver Sponsor for the event, has been advocating “integration at the edge,” while developing products to serve as the "connective tissue" that enables interoperability between the networks, devices, clouds and applications that are part of the communications landscape.

In the session entitled "Libraries and How to Use Them” on Thursday, November 29th at 9:40 a.m., Corbic will discuss how WebRTC and Web tools can enable developers to take advantage of SDKs to speed up their time to market.

"Sangoma has a long history of supporting open source projects for telecommunications applications," continued Corbic. "As we continue to deliver new boards and software for established open source projects such as Asterisk and FreeSource, we look forward to being a significant contributor to the growth of WebRTC as it expands throughout the technology landscape."

The WebRTC Conference and Expo will take place November 27-29, 2012 at the South San Francisco Conference Center in San Francisco, Calif.
