SAN FRANCISCO -- May 8, 2014

Voxbone today announced the availability of its Web Real-Time Communications
(WebRTC) service, allowing enterprises and communications providers to use
Voxbone’s global private VoIP network for WebRTC calling. Voxbone aims to
accelerate adoption of WebRTC by enabling companies with SIP-based VoIP
infrastructure to quickly and easily deploy high-quality and secure WebRTC
services without complex software development or network investment.

With its new service, Voxbone introduces two capabilities which remove key
barriers to the deployment of WebRTC services: Firstly, Voxbone routes WebRTC
calls over its private global backbone instead of the public Internet, adding
high levels of quality of service and security. Secondly, calls are delivered
over a regular SIP trunk, allowing Voxbone customers to start using WebRTC
without the need for additional investment in network infrastructure.
Additionally, Voxbone will make its WebRTC JavaScript library available to its
customers, enabling rapid web client development. This allows enterprises and
communications providers to quickly, easily and cost-effectively roll out
high-quality and secure WebRTC services.

“As a major step towards all-IP communications, WebRTC represents one of the
most significant developments in enterprise communications in recent years,”
said Voxbone CEO Itay Rosenfeld. “Voxbone’s new WebRTC service is part of our
mission to provide easy and instant access to telecommunications networks and
services. By making it simple and risk-free for cloud communications providers
and enterprises to take full advantage of WebRTC, we are driving its adoption
forward.”

Large enterprises and communications providers require technology to be mature
before starting a complex deployment project, and consider quality of service
a key requirement. As with many emerging technologies, WebRTC has challenges
in this respect. WebRTC calls traveling over the public Internet are subject
to variable quality of service, making them less suitable for enterprise
communications. Additionally, as WebRTC standards are evolving rapidly,
investing in this technology inherently brings the risk that they will be
outdated by the time the infrastructure gets deployed.

Voxbone’s new WebRTC service allows its customers to overcome these challenges
by using the proven technology of its private VoIP network, which has a track
record of delivering a high quality of service. As WebRTC calls are delivered
over a SIP trunk, companies can leverage existing SIP-based VoIP
infrastructure without having to worry about changes in WebRTC standards. This
allows them to take immediate advantage of the benefits associated with using
WebRTC in web clients, including:

  *Saving on telecommunications costs by moving inbound communications from
    PSTN to the Internet
  *Improving the quality and user experience of web-based calling
    applications such as click-to call or click-to join applications

Ten of Voxbone’s existing cloud conferencing and contact center customers will
be participating in a private beta trial, with general availability expected
in Q4 2014.
