Acme Packet demonstrates WebRTC interworking capability

Nov 29, 2012 (TELECOMWORLDWIRE via COMTEX) -- Acme Packet (NASDAQ: APKT) announced the first successful demonstration of a WebRTC-enabled browser calling a mobile network subscriber via a multi-vendor IP Multimedia Subsystem network, employing a session border controller for secure and seamless interoperability between the web and an IMS core with connectivity to the PSTN.

WebRTC is an emerging standard for real-time communications in web browsers and embeds voice and video directly into existing browsers without having to download stand-alone communication applications.

Enabled by Acme Packet SBCs, an HTML5-based WebRTC dialer on a laptop was used inside of Google's Chrome browser to initiate a call to a 3G mobile subscriber using a major North American mobile service providers' multi-vendor IMS infrastructure.

This demonstration represented a significant step towards the broader use of WebRTC by showing how WebRTC technology can be used to connect billions of Internet users to the PSTN's six billion fixed line and mobile subscribers.

Acme Packet enables the trusted, first-class delivery of next-generation voice, video, data and unified communications services and applications across IP networks.
