Securing & Enabling Real-Time Communications on a Public Cloud
Date / Time: Tuesday, March 26, 2019, 11:00 a.m. New York / 3:00 p.m. London
The market for public cloud keeps expanding rapidly, and running application workloads on a public cloud has become commonly accepted. However, when it comes to real-time communication (RTC) workloads on a public cloud, it is still early in the adoption cycle.
If you are a provider of real-time communications (e.g., VoIP, unified communications, call centers or SIP trunking), when it comes to deploying on a public cloud, you want to know it is secure, reliable, has global reach, delivers predictable quality of service (QoS) and will be more efficient and cost-effective than hosting these services in your own private cloud.
If you are a consumer of real-time communications, you need to be confident the service you purchase is secure, is delivered reliably, at the scale you need possibly across multiple sites or geographic regions and with the QoS you demand.
This webinar will address the following questions:
- What makes deploying real-time communication workloads on a public cloud different from other applications?
- What benefits and opportunities does the public cloud enable for RTC providers?
- What is needed to meet the requirements of both providers and consumers of RTC on a public cloud?
- What does the future hold for RTC on a public cloud?
