Zingaya's VoxImplant Helps App Developers Leverage WebRTC

WebRTC has gained attention in recent months for many reasons, one could argue, but it seems that its ability to make real-time communications more widely accessible is the leading factor. In fact, if you pay close attention to the various WebRTC-related offerings being released — such as GENBAND’s SPiDR WebRTC gateway, which helps telcos leverage WebRTC — you may notice a pattern of making WebRTC itself even more accessible.

Recently, real-time communications service provider Zingaya carried on this trend in a significant way with the release of VoxImplant. VoxImplant is a communications cloud platform built for developers that makes embedding WebRTC functionality into both Web and mobile apps much easier.

"With VoxImplant, creating voice- and video-enabled apps has never been faster or easier," said Alexey Aylarov, CEO of Zingaya, in a statement. "VoxImplant utilizes a cloud app engine approach to provide all the infrastructure and coding so that developers can focus on their apps without having to struggle with complicated, low-level technologies. Most of the platform functionality can be accessed using JavaScript."

The VoxImplant Web SDK makes issues of compatibility a thing of the past as it uses WebRTC for compatible browsers — most notably the latest versions of Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox — and Flash for incompatible ones. Of course, the VoxImplant iOS and Android SDKs provide easy integration of WebRTC with mobile apps.

With the power of WebRTC, developers can adds services such as click-to-call for customer service purposes, masked voice and video chatting for dating apps, or even broadcasting functionality, just to name a few possibilities.

Meanwhile, the call control logic is all written in JavaScript and can be uploaded to the cloud, to be handled by the VoxEngine whenever a call is made or received. The flexibility this entails makes VoxImplant a good choice even for enterprise-level scenarios. In fact, the platform supports SIP, allowing calls to be made and received from any SIP endpoint, further making it a viable enterprise option.
