Oracle has announced the release of Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller 7.1, which the company said brings WebRTC support to native mobile iOS and Android applications for a seamless, cross-device customer experience. Oracle added that the new release also improves bandwidth utilization and cost savings by intelligently switching among anchored media, peer-2-peer (P2P) media, and P2P data depending on the CSP's or enterprise's network topology.
Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller is built to provide better connectivity into CSP and enterprise environments with restrictive firewalls by supporting advanced Network Address Translation traversal functionality. In addition, the new release enables secure and reliable RTC services by delivering GSMA's Rich Communications Suite (RCS) capabilities through Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller APIs. This functionality allows CSPs to extend their RCS investments to devices that are WebRTC-capable.
According to Oracle, the new version of WebRTC session controller comes with newer features, including deployment in virtualized environments, support for instant messaging through a Message Session Relay Protocol Gateway and integration to media server platforms to offload complex, hardware-intensive media processing such as audio/video transcoding, recording, and conferencing
