Standardization organizations, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), announced that WebRTC, an open source technology that provides real-time communication to browsers and applications through simple APIs, has become a standard.
WebRTC has been promoted by Google as an open source technology for real-time communication functions used for video calls. Google acquired Global IP Solutions, which owns WebRTC, which seeks to replace Adobe Flash and desktop applications that do not work in browsers, in 2010, and a year later open-sourced WebRTC. With the spread of WebRTC, audio and video communication systems can be embedded, and plug-in installation and individual application program downloads are required.
WebRTC has been recognized for its performance by being supported by major browsers such as Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, Opera, and Brave. As a result, on January 26, 2021 (local time), the W3C and IETF admitted that they reached standardization. IETF Chairman Alyssa Cooper said that VoIP technology will revolutionize the way the world communicates, and WebRTC has dramatically expanded the range of VoIP. Amid the corona 19 prevalence around the world, billions of people are connected to each other regardless of device or region to exchange exchanges. He said he could keep.
In this announcement, mention was made about the next standard technology of WebRTC. WebRTC Working Group conducts priority review on various issues such as end-to-end encryption, real-time processing of audio and video feeds including machine learning, Internet of Things, etc. in video conferencing through servers, and development of real-time two-way communication technology WebTransport by UDP/QUIC It is said that it is going on.
