With the upcoming WebRTC World Conference in Atlanta end of this month, we're already starting to see companies, both large and small begin to tip their hands, as they dip their toes into the WebRTC waters.
So it's no surprise that Broadsoft has moved WebRTC into their UC-One platform, as today's news announcement lays out.
Clearly with the news and the statement in the release "beyond the confines of the enterprise -- to any customer, partner or supplier with a WebRTC-enabled browser. With the addition of WebRTC, BroadSoft will extend the fully integrated, seamless communication experience UC-One provides to include web browsers.." demonstrates that Broadsoft while supporting the service providers with the offering could be looking to go beyond their own service provider base of customers, and directly into the enterprise.
Where this puts their service provider customers is a good question, as the whole idea of disintermediation can't be left out in an era where the cloud is upon us.
I expect Freeswitch, the leading open source softswitch, to be in the WebRTC space very soon.
