Sonus hosts Real-Time Communications 101 webinar

11 Aug 15

​Sonus Networks is hosting a free, four-part webinar series throughout September that will cover the fundamentals of VoLTE, SBCs, WebRTC and SDN.

The ‘Real-Time Communications 101’ webinars are targeted toward IT specialists, telecommunications sales professionals, technical writers and marketers, and anyone looking to hone their skills on these burgeoning technologies.

Real-time communications (RTC) encompasses all communications that happen without transmission delays and is virtually instant with minimal latency, Sonus says.

From VoIP to IM and video conferencing to presence and collaboration, RTC is transforming the way businesses and people communicate, says Sonus.

Service providers and enterprises in particular are implementing the technologies that underlie a successful real-time network. 

In this series, attendees will learn:

  • How an SBC is used to enable secure and reliable communications over a SIP infrastructure; 
  • How VoLTE is the next best thing to hit smartphones by enabling superior voice quality, even when browsing the internet;
  • How WebRTC extends service provider and enterprise communications networks to allow customised engagement with customers; and
  • How SDN optimises the migration of applications and data to the Cloud to lower costs for enterprises and bring in new revenue streams for service providers.

"As real-time communications become pervasive and move to the cloud, it is more important than ever before to take the time to learn and understand how to secure and enable them," says Mykola Konrad, Sonus Go-to-Market vice president.

"Sonus launched this series to clarify the technologies that are optimising, monitoring and securing RTC."

Rob Arnold, Frost and Sullivan industry principal, says, "After cost reduction, among the top enterprise IT investment drivers are improving productivity and customer service, and staying ahead of the curve - all of which are addressed by enhanced real-time communications.

"Understanding how underlying network technologies are implemented will help optimise the reliability, security and control that enhanced real-time communications require."​
