NTT Com trials private, secure messaging with encrypted browser-to-browser via SkyWay WebRTC chat platform: http://bit.ly/1kRM8Sz
TOKYO, JAPAN – NTT Communications Corporation announced today the immediate start of a free trial for its “WebRTC Chat on Skyway” web application, which uses WebRTC (Web Real-Time Communications) technologies for browser-to-browser communication between devices in real time, the first such application in Japan. WebRTC is a breakthrough technology that enables real-time point-to-point (P2P) communication for voice, video and data (ex. file) sharing between browsers of devices including PCs and smartphones. Existing P2P communication requires a dedicated application in each device, but WebRTC only uses conventional browsers, so service development costs are relatively low. WebRTC is expected to be used widely in future applications.
