WebRTC & Cloud Communications

Track Highlights!


Communications expertise is hot property once again: Facebook bought Whatsapp for $19B, Snapchat snapped up AddLive before people realized how great their service was. Emerging service providers and power players alike have embraced VoIP while newer solutions such as WebRTC (Real Time Communications) which combines the best of the web and communications is poised to disrupt all aspects of real-time communications and even the telecommunications sector. Additionally, leading network operators are gearing up for VoLTE (Voice over LTE) in a world that is increasingly dominated by users’ mobility and the cloud’s pervasiveness and ubiquity. Leveraging technologies such as WebRTC, HTML5, _javascript_, and Websockets, the innovation in web communication technology is accelerating. WebRTC and Cloud Communications thrive where IP, cloud computing , browsers, and telecommunications technologies collide, disrupt and release new value. The impact is clearly revolutionary and its effects are only just starting to be felt.

Adding communications to any application, service and business process is creating engaging experiences: just look at Airbnb and Uber in their use of communications; and Amazon Mayday is transforming customer support with WebRTC technology. Has the web won in telecommunications? Many network infrastructure and interoperability challenges remain; and critically customers expect communications to just work, reloading a browser window to get a call working is not acceptable. The WebRTC and Cloud Communication vision is compelling, it is a revolution in the making, but there are many challenges ahead. Join us in Chicago as our speakers and panel of experts delve behind the curtain and peel away the layers of hype and confusion.
