Voxbone launches WebRTC Beta Program


In the past, Voxbone was one of the industry pioneers of WebRTC connections as a complimentary service to SIP Trunks. We’re happy to have contributed to a technology we continue to believe in and, now that there’s an abundance of high-quality open-source WebRTC gateways and proxies available in the wild, we believe it’s best to take a step back and let the community develop in the direction it sees fit.

Even though our own WebRTC service was shut down in 2018, you can still access the building blocks of our WebRTC interface and all the necessary tools and tutorials needed to replicate the service on your own, at scale. Alternatively, try the fully supported LiveSwitch Cloud SDK available from the WebRTC experts at Frozen Mountain.

If you’re interested in setting this up and would like some advice, feel free to contact our product team or reach out to the good folks at Frozen Mountain for more information.

We are thrilled about WebRTC and want to be a part of it!

We especially appreciated Sarah Reedy’s own comment:

“It works! I must say, it is rare for demos to go smoothly the first time, but Voxbone’s did. It was literally just click this link and you’re on the call. That kind of ease of use will be important to make WebRTC viable. Excited to see more companies taking advantage of it. Makes thinges easier on desktops and mobiles.”

Thanks so much for the positive and encouraging feedback!
