WHITEPAPER: CRITICAL ISSUES FACING COLLABORATION PLANNERS & IT DECISION MAKERS
Understanding the impact of WebRTC
Introduced by Google back in Q2-2011 (five years ago), WebRTC is an open source software package for real-time voice and video (and file sharing) on the web. Over time, work by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) and the World Wide Web Consortium (which now manages the standard) has standardized the communication protocols and compression algorithms (audio and video) and defined the relevant browser APIs. The overriding goal of the WebRTC community is to enable calling and collaboration via browser-to-browser connections without the need for plugins.
WebRTC, a solid candidate to be the dial tone of the future, will play a dominant role in future modes of communications.
This whitepaper explains why webRTC is important for video collaboration, the benefits and where it is being used today.
