Genband and Quobis to collaborate to bring WebRTC capabilities to service provider market

Newly integrated WebRTC solutions already allowing service providers to introduce new applications on wide range of devices, browsers and network environments

Frisco, Texas, and Vigo, Spain, November 12, 2014GENBAND™, a leading developer of real time communications software solutions, today announced it is collaborating with QUOBIS, a leading provider of carrier-class unified communications solutions, on the integration of the SIPPO WebRTC Application Controller with GENBAND’s SPiDR™ WebRTC Gateway solution. These newly combined solutions, which build on the successful integration and deployment of GENBAND and QUOBIS solutions in a wide range of ecosystems, will allow the two organizations to address the growing demand of service providers and enterprises for real-time embedded communications.

GENBAND’s SPiDR WebRTC Gateway is designed to enable the addition of high quality communications across a range of web, telecommunications and other applications. The SPiDR solution allows service providers to leverage advanced communications services including video, voice, presence, shared address book, call history, instant messaging and collaboration that are embedded natively in applications. The market-leading WebRTC Gateway offers a richer, more immersive communications experience than any other product currently on the market.

“GENBAND has carved out a distinctive leadership position in WebRTC through our SPiDR WebRTC Gateway and Kandy communications platform,” said Brad Bush, Chief Marketing Officer for GENBAND. “Working with QUOBIS to bring to market powerful WebRTC solutions will further help our customers create revenue-generating opportunities in the expanding web communications ecosystem.”

QUOBIS has already successfully tested WebRTC applications in numerous vertical markets, helping their customers achieve revenue-generating use cases. One example of a successful vertical market application is the combination of the SIPPO Web Collaborator and SIPPO Click-to-Call with the GENBAND SPiDR WebRTC Gateway. The seamless integration of the two solutions using REST API web services leverages the SIPPO WebRTC Application Controller, which provides an ORCA.js compatible API for application developers, and the SPiDR WebRTC Gateway to mitigate all the potential complexities of WebRTC implementations and quickly enable applications to be developed and run on different devices, browsers and network environments.

SIPPO WebRTC Application Controller (WAC) is a new product category that manages WebRTC applications, providing seamless integration with existing OSS and BSS in NGN and IMS architectures. SIPPO WAC is fully compliant with the 3GPP architecture and includes a number of advanced functionalities including identity management, user provisioning, synchronized contact and address book management, policy control, security control, statistics and integration with a variety of existing OSS/BSS elements in the enterprise or service provider networks.

“It’s all about managing the complexity of integrating the telco world into web applications,” says Iago Soto, QUOBIS Chief Marketing Officer. “SIPPO’s WebRTC solution is currently being trialed by more than 100 service providers and enterprises around the world. Teaming with GENBAND allows us to address the demands of customers who want a complete, seamless solution for real Web-based field deployments of next generation real time communication services.”
