Sansay Announces New Session Border Controller and WebRTC Developer Program

WebRTC, the free, open source technology enabling real-time communication and collaboration via a web browser and simple JavaScript, is poised to expand rapidly over the next few years. Already, over 1 billion devices are WebRTC capable, and that number is expected to rise to 3.9 billion by 2016. Anticipating this climb, Sansay, a provider of software-based VoIP networks and WebRTC infrastructure based out of California, has revealed its next-generation session border controller (SBC), along with a new developer program intended to help VoIP providers, telcos, and other companies design advanced WebRTC applications and services.

Based on Sansay’s VSXi SBC, the new session border controller, WebSBC, is described as a highly scalable WebRTC-SIP interconnect for WebRTC applications, serving as a carrier-class Media Engine for service provider networks. Integrating the functions of both a WebRTC-SIP gateway and a browser client with embedded SIP stacks into the application layer, WebSBC promises to do away with complex configurations and high costs associated with implementing and managing a WebRTC enabled VoIP network.

WebSBC is able to replicate both of these functions via Sansay’s new Real-Time App Developer (RAPID) environment. Currently available for preview, the RAPID program is designed to expedite the process of creating and deploying WebRTC applications for both service providers and enterprises. The current preview version of the environment includes a RESTful Web API for WebRTC media plane control and WebRTC-SIP interconnect, sample app articles and access to a developer Q&A forum.

"Sansay's experience with manageable large-scale application development will ease deployment efforts and deliver revenue generating applications for new business lines," said Glen Gerhard, Sansay VP of Product Management.

The RAPID preview can be obtained at developer.sansay.com. WebSBC is also available for evaluation in both service provider hosted platform-as-a service (PaaS) models. For developers, WebSBC cloud access can also be requested for app testing.

Over 350 service providers worldwide currently rely on Sansay for their VoIP networks and services, and with WebSBC, Sansay hopes to have jumped out ahead of the WebRTC boom, wisely preempting the needs of the future.
