I was thrilled to learn that Voxeo’s own Daniel Burnett along with Internet communication protocol expert Alan Johnston, have co-authored a new book about the next revolution in web technology for real-time communication, VoIP and video conferencing. In the book, “WebRTC: APIs and RTCWEB Protocols of the HTML5 Real-Time Web,” Daniel and Alan describe how Web Real-Time Communications, WebRTC, is changing the way we use the web to communicate.
WebRTC is an open framework for the web that enables web browsers with Real-Time Communications capabilities. Using new Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) and protocols, web developers can now add high quality peer-to-peer voice, video, and data channel communications to their collaboration, conferencing, telephony, or even gaming site or application. Internet industry leaders from companies such as Google, Mozilla, Microsoft, Avaya, Cisco, Ericsson, as well as Voxeo and others are currently driving the standards and technology for WebRTC.
Daniel Burnett is an editor of two of the main World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) working drafts, known as “WebRTC” and “Media Capture and Streams”. He is Director of Standards at Voxeo. Alan Johnston is actively involved in the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) Real-Time Communications Web (RTCWEB) working group. Together these experts introduce and explain the W3C APIs and the IETF protocols of WebRTC.
WebRTC offers the fundamental building blocks needed to enable high-quality communications on the web.
The Voxeo team congratulates both Daniel and Alan on the new book. The book is available now in paperback on Amazon and as a Kindle eBook. For more information go to http://webrtcbook.com
