CU-RTC-Web stands for Customizable, Ubiquitous Real Time Communication over the Web.

It was a competing specification by Microsoft that rivaled WebRTC. The main focus of this proposal was to provide a lower level API (and power) to developers by providing better control over channels.

This has been later on wrapped as part of the work put into ORTC.

CU-RTC-Web is currently obsolete.
