WebRTC: A revolutionary protocol in VoIP Solution

The new generation of technology has taken a turn and presented to us WebRTC. This technology pushes us further into the age of future communications like VoIP solution.

VoIP Solution has changed the world of telecommunications. With further developments in technology, WebRTC (Web Real-Time Communication) has been created. The simple definition is, it is a collection of communication protocols and Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) that makes real-time communications possible over peer to peer connections. It acts as a software intermediary and helps application programs to interact with each other. WebRTC makes it possible for web developers to enable VoIP into their Web-based applications. Everyone knows that WebRTC has opened a whole new way for VoIP Solutions.

WebRTC has found its way into our lives. Owing to the popularity of VoIP Solutions many sectors have taken up WebRTC for their business purposes. Some of these sectors are, BFSI, Public Sector, Healthcare, Transportation, Manufacturing, Media & Entertainment, IT & Telecom, Energy & Utility and Retail. The WebRTC market comprises of real-time solution vendors, integrators, and communication service providers. Making the web as its main tool and workspace, WebRTC’s browser-based collaboration functions include email applications, calendar apps, cloud-based messaging, video chats, myriad ways to bring remote participants into hosted video conferences, support for telemedicine.

According to a report published by Credence Research, Inc. based on its worldwide market research on “Web Real-Time Communication Market By Type (Solution, Service), By Service (Consulting, Implementation, Integration, Maintenance), By Application (Social Networking, Gaming, Voice Calling, Video Conferencing, Others), By End-user Vertical (BFSI, Public Sector, Healthcare, Transportation, Manufacturing, Media & Entertainment, IT & Telecom, Energy & Utility, Retail) – Growth, Share, Opportunities & Competitive Analysis, 2016 – 2023” , the growth of global WebRTC market is expected to be over 40% between 2016 to 2023. Though WebRTC faces the lack of efficient networking infrastructure, hopefully, the market revenue will reach about US$22Mn by 2025.

Some of the special features of WebRTC:


  1. Free of cost: It is an open sourced Application Programming Interface (API). Google and its partners introduced in 2011.


  1. Minimal requirement: Any WebRTC-enabled browser with any operating system and a web service application is the only requirement for it to connect with another similar device for real-time voice or video connection.


  1. Privacy secured: Encryption is always present on WebRTC. For encryption and authentication, Secure RTP protocol (SRTP) is used. This is said to work better than the Wi-Fi networks and maintains the privacy.


  1. High quality of voice and video: WebRTC uses the Opus audio codec which produces high-quality voice. VP8 is the video codec, a highly efficient video compression technology which helps to conceal packet loss, clean up noisy images and has capture and playback capabilities across multiple platforms.


  1. Reliable session establishment: It supports reliable session establishment which eventually increases quality and reduces server load


  1. Adaptable to changing network: WebRTC can adjust to changes in network conditions and maintain the quality of voice or video. Also, it supports multiple media stream endpoints.


To recapitulate,

When the comparison comes between WebRTC and VoIP solution, there are similarities as well as differences. Betterment of user experience is the focus of both VoIP and WebRTC.  They also try to connect any consumer device irrespective of its place and network. Based on the service delivering way, VoIP and WebRTC is differing. VoIP solution uses DSL, Cable modem, Wi-Fi, 3G and other similar means. WebRTC, on the other hand, works only on browser-based communications.

W3C (World Wide Web Consortium) drives WebRTC. It enables the VoIP solution straight into the browser. In PTC (Pacific Telecommunications Council) 2016, INAANI, took the chance to project itself as a WebRTC friendly carrier VoIP Service Provider. Also, INAANI does not stop only with the browser-based uses of WebRTC. Its network will be capable of transmitting WebRTC traffic between browsers and both landline and GSM networks. The termination of calls on mobile should allow the telecom to use IP Services on any device a user intends to. One would be able to make and receive calls directly from the browser without any assistance from external VoIP applications. The resultant benefits would thus be enormous.
