Sonus Networks, a global leader in secure and intelligent Cloud communications, today announced that it is bringing new WebRTC capabilities to enterprises and service providers through its WebRTC Services Solution Release 1.1. This release provides support for 97 percent of mobile devices and increases support of major Cloud environments. Additionally, Sonus provides simplified integration of messaging services, robust authentication security features and innovative session mobility features. 

Release 1.1 ensures the WebRTC Services Solution runs in Amazon and Google public Cloud environments, making it possible to leverage the scale and network efficiencies of public Cloud providers. Sonus also made enhancements to its iOS, Android and .net SDK library support, reaching 97 percent (Source: International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Mobile Phone Tracker August 2015) of the addressable mobile device market so developers can easily create WebRTC applications. Release 1.1 also offers:

1.    REST API for messaging services to increase flexibility for integrating automated, external or legacy messaging platforms into WebRTC applications.

2.    A generic authentication framework to implement a social media, directory services, proprietary or non-standard authentication model for seamless and secure information transfer.

3.    Heightened session mobility for end-users to simultaneously engage in WebRTC sessions across multiple smartphones, tablets and laptops.


“With Sonus’ WebRTC Services Solution, we developed a software offering to create secure and intelligent click-to-connect mobile applications and services,” said Tony Scarfo, Sonus executive vice president, Services, Product Management and Corporate Development. “Release 1.1 enables Sonus customers to take the next step in the evolution of WebRTC so they have the technology that more seamlessly integrates into their network architectures.”

“For many use-cases, WebRTC deployment is occurring in parallel with other communications-industry megatrends, especially the move to Cloud-based platforms and the use of mobile devices,” said Dean Bubley, Disruptive Analysis, founder and director. “We also see cases where voice/video is embedded inside messaging-centric ‘workstream’ applications. It is encouraging to see more vendors support WebRTC integration with iOS, Android and important public Cloud platforms.”
