WebRTC Conference 2012 | 10/12 October 2012








The impact of WebRTC on IP communications as we know it today could be revolutionary.  It is already a major issue for telcos. Is it a threat or an opportunity for their revenues from telephony? That’s the rising big question and that’s why carrier labs are actively working on this new technology.

WebRTC (Web-based Real-Time Communication) is a standardization effort currently being driven by the IETF and W3C to embed a real-time media engine into web browsers and associated applications. 

WebRTC enables web applications to leverage web browsers to make real-time voice and video connections to other WebRTC devices or traditional VoIP and video devices through mediation elements that can interface WebRTC with the existing infrastructure.

Threat or Opportunity for Telcos?

Providing interactive communications between two peer web-browsers is already possible today. Indeed, there are a number of proprietary implementations allowing rich communications using audio, video or any collaboration. But these solutions are not interoperable as they require non-standard extensions or plugins to work.

WebRTC was imagined to solve this interoperability issue. It is an open framework for the web that enables Real Time Communications in the browser. It includes the fundamental building blocks for high quality communications on the web such as network, audio and video components used in voice and video telephone, conferencing and chat applications. These components, when implemented in a browser, can be accessed through a Javascript API, enabling developers to easily implement their own RTC web app.

Does WebRTC constitute a threat or an opportunity for Telco business models?

Can WebRTC be considered as a plain telephony service?

What about scalability, security, confidentiality?


During the WebRTC Conference, to be held in Novotel Wellness & Convention Centre Paris Roissy CDG from 10 to 12 October 2012, experts will address all technical and standardization issues that still need to be solved.

The conference agenda is online
