Sansay Receives US Patent for WebSBC

Sansay is a well-respected name in the communication services provider space as its software-based VoIP infrastructure is some of the best in the business. Indeed, the company’s session border controllers were recently rated as “visionary” in Gartner’s November “Magic Quadrant” report. Sansay is also a platinum sponsor at the ITEXPO, taking place this week in Miami, Florida.

However, there is a shift occurring in the world of communications, led by the disruptive technology known as WebRTC, which allows for browser-based video, audio and text communications free from the need for plug-ins or clients. While WebRTC’s impact may have caught some players in the communications space off guard, Sansay has been ahead of the curve in this area.

In particular, the company introduced WebSBC, a process that enables providers to offer enhanced Web-based multimedia services more quickly and reliably.  Seeing as how Sansay was just granted a U.S. patent for WebSBC, it seems that there’s nothing stopping the company from continuing to prosper as it did prior to WebRTC’s debut.

For further proof of this, interested parties should check out what Glen Gerhard, Sansay’s VP of Product Management, has to say on the subject of “Generating Revenue with WebRTC,” which is the name of the session he will be participating in at ITEXPO Miami 2014. Scheduled for January 30 from 3:30 to 4:15 p.m., this session will focus on how service providers can leverage WebRTC to build new multimedia applications to extend their value to customers.

As it so happens, this is exactly what WebSBC does as it facilitates faster connections, a better user experience, greater scalability, improved reliability and a higher degree of protection from DoS attacks.

"Sansay's WebSBC solves the problem of traversing restricted firewalls by allowing ICE media-relay candidates to be created automatically by the web application without forcing the clients to use a TURN server,” said Sansay CTO Gerald Ryner in a statement.  “The REST based auto-relay creation results in faster call-setup times by eliminating the need for the client to locate, request and authenticate itself to a network-based TURN server.  The technology also improves the media-handling scalability, while reducing the threat of denial-of-service attacks that otherwise exist in typical TURN server deployments."
