The WebRTC Global Summit was a landmark event for 2014, being the first event of its kind not only in the UK but possibly Europe and the rest of the world.
With a particular emphasis on the Telco world, WebRTC as both an opportunity and a threat was explored and a number of inspiring presentations were delivered.
Key highlights included:
- The WebRTC roadmap
- A number of large Telcos are already building WebRTC capable applications
- Monetisation opportunities is still an open question
- Live demos of WebRTC
If you weren’t aware, John Logsdon was a panellist discussing ‘Advantages of WebRTC in Enterprise’. John’s key talking points included highlighting the ability for Enterprise to extend their customer care capabilities and experiences; and questioned whether there were any more secure VoIP protocols than WebRTC.
Tsahi Levent-Levi (Bloggeek.me) summarised the event by suggesting ‘The Telecoms industry sees WebRTC more as a challenge than an opportunity’. You can see Tsahi’s thoughts here.
