GENBAND's SPiDR™ WebRTC Gateway provides an intelligent bridge between traditional Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) networks and the open ecosystem of the Internet. SPiDR empowers network operators to deliver competitive applications over the Internet and unlocks new revenue potential from their existing wireless and fixed communication assets.
SPiDR sits at the edge of the network and provides open, web-centric APIs that allow application developers to leverage the rich communications services of the telecommunications network – including voice, video, presence, shared address book, call history, instant messaging, and collaboration. SPiDR seamlessly and intelligently interworks both the signaling and media planes between the web and telecom worlds and is offered as part of the GENBAND solutions for service providers and enterprises.
SPiDR introduces Web Real-Time Communications capabilities into GENBAND’s cloud-ready Application Server solution, and offers GENCom for Web, a browser-based WebRTC soft-client that simplifies the deployment of unified communications and collaboration. With GENCom for Web, there are no OS specific clients or mobile applications to deploy, drastically reducing both the CAPEX and OPEX costs related to VoIP services for consumers and businesses. Designed using HTML5, GENCom for Web provides a multimedia user experience and replicates the full suite of GENCom client functionality in the browser, allowing subscribers to easily access their services from any web-capable device. Additionally, GENCom for Web offers a consistent look and feel, so usability is not compromised.
SPiDR allows operators to exploit the capabilities of their communications networks via simple, RESTful APIs. By partnering with other market leading organizations and vertical market experts via its unique Innovation Exchange community, GENBAND is delivering breakthrough custom solutions that allow its customers to maximize revenue opportunities and win the battle for customer loyalty.
