In response to the growing demand for real-time communications (RTC) anytime, anywhere, and from virtually any device, many communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises are now offering browser-based WebRTC capabilities and services. The latest release of Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller provides the secure and reliable functionalities that users want -- such as voice calling, video, and chat -- within an iOS and Android client application for a seamless, device-independent customer experience.

News Facts

  • Oracle today announced the release of Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller 7.1, which brings WebRTC support to native mobile iOS and Android applications for a seamless, cross-device customer experience.
  • The new release also improves bandwidth utilization and cost savings by intelligently switching among anchored media, peer-2-peer (P2P) media, and P2P data depending on the CSP's or enterprise's network topology.
