UK-based mobile virtual network aggregator (MVNA), x-Mobility has partnered with TokBox, a Telefónica WebRTC company to enable its MVNO and OTT customers to offer video calls to their subscribers. TokBox develops and operates the OpenTok platform, a cloud platform for embedding live video, voice, messaging and screen sharing experiences into websites and mobile applications.
Using the OpenTok platform from TokBox, x-Mobility gives MVNOs and OTTs access to simple APIs which utilise WebRTC – offering real-time access to video calling without the need for plug-ins, app download or other third party extras. The OpenTok platform is device, browser and operating system agnostic. It supports group and one-to-one conversations, includes the ability for users to record calls, and uses encrypted and authenticated infrastructure so that customer data is always private and secure.
In addition, x-Mobility said that it can offer MVNOs services beyond traditional telephony, including 4G data services and Virtual Mobile Number services.
