WIT Software advances rich communications with integration of WebRTC in RCS Web Communicator; Latest version supports full integration of web-browsers with joyn mobile apps, including beta support for WebRTC

(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Lisbon, Portugal WIT Software, a leading provider of downloadable RCS Applications, has today unveiled the latest version of its RCS Web Communicator application suite, advancing the convergence of rich communications within web sites and services by supporting emerging technologies, such as HTML5 and WebRTC.

Based purely on Javascript and WebRTC, the new version of RCS Web fully integrates web-browsers with existing joyn mobile apps running on iPhones and Android phones, including real-time messaging, capability discovery, voice and video over IP. WIT will be showcasing the WIT RCS Web Communicator on Stand No: 6G80 in Hall 6 during the MWC in Barcelona.
