What WebRTC Enables

By Manoj Jain, Chief Operating Officer, Bankai

Web real-time communication (WebRTC) has the potential to transform the World Wide Web by embedding peer-to-peer sharing applications into browsers and enabling live video streaming over mobile phones. WebRTC is fully supported by Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, for example, thereby enabling websites to become service providers. While this situation could increase competition for voice carriers, it also provides additional revenue opportunities for entrenched carriers via unified communication services (UCS), mobile text, video and voice services, and WebRTC, both as a platform and for WebRTC termination to PSTN and mobile networks.

WebRTC is simple to deploy via JavaScript code on any device that can run a web browser.  WebRTC provides an IP-based open source application program interface (API), and depending on one’s point of view, can be compatible or competitive with VoIP. WebRTC is only available through browsers, while VoIP can be used over several protocols. More importantly, WebRTC enables web developers to build VoIP into their web-based applications. WebRTC and VoIP can be used concurrently, and WebRTC allows developers to embed VoIP service directly into a web browser.

Streamlining VoIP Termination Services

By Manoj Jain, Chief Operating Officer, Bankai

VoIP traffic is increasing because it is a more affordable alternative to time-division multiplexing (TDM) calling and satisfies the need for wholesale termination arrangements to ensure that calls reach their intended destination regardless of whether the originating carrier has facilities in that geography. A carrier’s success depends highly on which carrier it chooses for VoIP termination services due to its impact on expenses, revenues, profit margins, and, ultimately, customer satisfaction.

While previously, large carriers worked directly with one another to create termination agreements, the number of wholesale providers has since increased and smaller carriers with tighter local presence have emerged, creating a competitive marketplace with additional options for carriers. The larger operators now need to position themselves such that the smaller carriers can interact and exchange information with them easily.
