Oracle's New Session Controller Makes WebRTC a Carrier-Grade Solution

Back before Acme Packet was bought up by Oracle for somewhere around $2.1 billion, the company best known for its session border controllers (SBCs) had been dipping its toes in the WebRTC waters. In fact, Acme Packet was the first company to successfully complete a demonstration of a WebRTC-enabled browser calling a mobile network subscriber via a multivendor IP multimedia subsystem (IMS) network and an SBC.

At the time, Acme Packet’s chief technology officer Pat MeLampy seemed excited about how WebRTC capabilities could extend IMS service delivery for carriers, among other applications. In other words, it seemed like the company was just getting started with WebRTC.

As such, it’s not surprising that the first combined offering released following Oracle’s acquisition of Acme Packet relates to WebRTC. Recently unveiled by Oracle, the offering is called Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller and promises to enable communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services with carrier-grade reliability and security — from almost any device and across almost any network.

“Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller, along with our Unified Communications Suite, enables CSPs and enterprises to offer differentiated services through secure and reliable IP-based communications from virtually any device, across virtually any network,” said Bhaskar Gorti, senior vice president and general manager at Oracle Communications. “We are pleased to offer our customers a solution that enables them to take advantage of emerging communications technologies without compromising security or reliability.”

In particular, Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables CSPs to integrate carrier-grade signaling, policy and charging with any WebRTC application in support of bandwidth management, media channel allocation and service quality. Best of all, it does so will providing robust security for managing users’ identities across Web and traditional networks, in addition to protection from malicious attacks and accidental overloads.

In other words, this is a solution that allows CSPs to reliably scale WebRTC offerings to millions of subscribers with minimal fuss.
