While I do most of my WebRTC writing on my own blog, I do write occasionally elsewhere. Here’s a list of those other posts.
- Skype or in-app?
The future of communications is inside apps. Now that voice and video calling is no longer a service but rather a feature, we will see it embedded everywhere.
The network effect that made GSM so popular is being undermined by the network effect of the Internet and smartphone apps.
- Video codec
Cisco recently announced a new WebRTC video codec named Thor, which joins the fray of other video codecs competing for compatibility dominance.
- Contact centers
While many enterprises ought to explore their own WebRTC use cases, contact centers are leading the way in adoption of the browser-based technology.
- Use cases
WebRTC use cases can help organizations identify problems and find solutions with the browser-based technology in order to determine if it's right for them.
- WebRTC Security
Native media encryption and regular Web browser updates mitigate WebRTC security threats. Authorization and fraud-prevention mechanisms can help, too.

VP9 support is growing while H.265 support is sparse. Better bandwidth efficiency may be one reason why.

Why waiting for WebRTC to go away or stabilize isn't necessarily a good idea.
- Don't wait on WebRTC
Your competitors aren't waiting, and saying the standard isn't fleshed out yet is a cop out.

Informa's WebRTC Summit has been announced, and I have a half day workshop for you there.
WebRTC is changing how VoIP is used, downgrading it into a feature. This effectively kills the term "endpoint".
