WebRTC Gateway



What is WebRTC

WebRTC is a new open framework for the web that enables Real Time Communications in the browser. Moreover it enables the voice calling, video chat, and P2P file sharing without plugins for browser-to-browser applications. WebRTC offers web application developers the ability to write realtime multimedia applications like video chat on the web, without requiring plugins, downloads or installs. It's purpose is to help build a strong RTC platform that works across multiple web browsers and multiple platforms. The major component of the WebRTC are: getUserMedia, PeerConnection, DataChannels. The first allows a web browser to access the camera and microphone. The second sets up audio/video calls. The last one allows browsers to share data via peer-to-peer.

What is a Gateway

A gateway interconnects networks with different network protocol technologies by preforming the required protocol conversion. It allows communication between the webphone using the RTMP and the SIP phone. A gateway is a network point that acts as an entrance to another network. In enterprises, the gateway is the computer that routes the traffic from a workstation to the outside network that is serving the Web pages. In homes, the gateway is the Internet Service Providers that connects the user to the internet. In enterprises, the gateway node often acts as a proxy server and a firewall. The gateway is also associated with both a router, which use headers and forwarding tables to determine where packets are sent, and a switch, which provides the actual path for the packet in and out of the gateway.

Not limited to SIP

The WebRTC Gateway is much more versatile than the WebRTC SIP Gateway, because it can communicate with any device the Ozeki Webphone Gateway supports.

WebRTC Gateway

One of the greatest benefits of using WebRTC is that it is supported by every new web browser. You do not have to install a plugin to use it, unlike with flash, java or silverlight. Ozeki Webphone Gateway supports WebRTC and thanks to this if you create a webphone by using Ozeki Webphone Gateway it will be able to communicate with Ozeki Phone System XE through WebRTC. Another benefit of using the WebRTC technology is that it is supported by the web browsers of the smartphones unlike the technologies which use flash.

Here is how it works:
The call gets to Ozeki Webphone Gateway through WebRTC, then the Ozeki Phone System XE plays the role of the gateway by converting the media data so that all of the devices supported by the Ozeki Webphone Gateway communication platform can answer the call. Even another webphone can answer the call if you have a call center and the incoming call is forwarded to the webphone which is using WebRTC. Moreover it is also important to note that the webphone communicates with the Ozeki Webphone Gateway through the JavaScript API of the Ozeki Webphone Gateway.
