WebRTC, web real-time communications, is one of the hottest topics in the video communications industry, and for good reason. In a nutshell, WebRTC enables a user to connect over video without having to download a software client or plugin, and no username or password is required. Basically, all you need is a webcam, an Internet connection and the right browser (for example, the latest versions of Mozilla® or Chrome™), and you can connect over video with colleagues, partners, vendors and customers.

Can your business afford to lose $9,000 per minute?
According to the Ponemon Institute $9,000 is the average cost of an unplanned outage. In some cases the costs are much higher. The catalogue of cloud outages over recent years is well publicized and reads like a “who’s who” of the technology industry. It seems no one is immune.
But when it comes to delivering digital content, downtime isn’t the only concern. Today a poor user experience can be just as damaging as an outage. According to Limelight research, 78% of people will stop watching an online video after it buffers three times, and the majority of people will not wait more than 5 seconds for a website to load.
Organizations looking to deliver great digital experiences for their customers often choose to deliver that content using Content Delivery Networks (CDNs). Using multiple CDNs to deliver these digital content experiences promises even greater levels of availability and performance. But it brings with it a host of questi
Businesses must become agile and provide differentiated service as customer demands and expectations change. Moving beyond simple phone transactions, customers are taking matters into their own hands and turning to their peers, the web and social media to find answers. Contact centers play a major role in determining the customer’s perception of a company. Often seen as brand ambassadors, agents are the main interaction point for customers. It is therefore critical that they deliver personalized communications in the channels that customers prefer. Businesses should use cloud technology to add multichannel tools and support growing demand for chat, social, SMS and video.
Online video plays a critical role in today's digital marketing strategies for engaging with consumers. With a majority of U.S. web users regularly watching video, the potential for online video is clear: It can effectively drive clicks and conversions, turning casual consumers into loyal customers. Conversion is one of the most powerful and easily measurable benefits of video. A well-placed video supporting complex products and services can create up to a 90% conversion uplift.
Customers have grown accustomed to high speeds and reliable connectivity. One second of network delay when accessing website, mobile app, or application service can increase your bounce rate and even decrease your customer’s trust in your brand.
The typical business pain points per the above scenario are always like:
Latency – While, latency problems caused by geographic distance are impossible to solve on the public Internet;
Availability – Packet loss and complaints from customers can prevent you from increasing your user base;
Cost - The growth of your user base and your business needs both outpace your IT budget.
Security - Connections over the public Internet are vulnerable to DDoS attacks and other threats.
