Web Based Communication
Unified Communication has been one of the major themes of the last decade, with the widespread availability of fixed and mobile broadband access and the growing need for voice and data services convergence in particular for Enterprise customers.
There were several level approaches to face this issue, from sharing a common transmission technology up to merge application capabilities on a service platform. These matters involved an ICT evolution often based on custom/not-standard technology with relevant infrastructure costs.
Today WebRTC has come, a new open-source web based technology that combines the internet world wide coverage with a simple and powerful implementation.
WebRTC breaks down the barriers of complexity so far known in fulfillment of UC services, bringing to the fore the web real time communication concept, on the gravity wave of Internet massive numbers in TLC market.
Embrace represents the Italtel WebRTC solution, a fully-featured WebRTC-enabled platform with advanced capabilities that implements unified communication services in a client-less solution.
It can be integrated in an already deployed ICT infrastructure and customized to cover specific needs. Furthermore Embrace, as its own name suggests, introduces the web convergence concept in real time communication and becomes the heart of the Multi-Technology Conference environment.
