WebRTC: Is It Ready for Prime Time?

The web is already voice-enabled via Skype and other Over-the-Top (OTT) applications, APIs and approaches. But what's available today is proprietary, complicated to implement and expensive to integrate.

WebRTC, is emerging with the claim that a browser-based approach can overcome the difficulties and costs of the current approaches by enabling real-time voice and video to be directly embedded into browsers. With some powerful WebRTC backers — including Google, Mozilla, Cisco, Avaya, Siemens and Microsoft — we're in a situation where movement towards making the Web truly "multimedia" is gaining momentum

Don’t miss this full day of programming focused on WebRTC and hear experts analyze how ready it is for prime-time, while you'll learn first-hand what the real story is – WebRTC's myths, realities, promise and pitfalls. You'll gain a thorough understanding of whether WebRTC is right your enterprise and whether it can help you achieve your organizational goals.

Where can it be deployed in enterprises, carrier networks, and user endpoints? How difficult is it to deploy and use, and what are the technical obstacles?

Under the Hood with WebRTC

Get a tutorial and some hands-on exercises to learn how to code WebRTC and create applications. The emphasis will be on creating raw code as well as on using pre-built third-party WebRTC software.
