Cloud service delivery models are rapidly changing real-time communications (RTC) with new dynamic services and anticipated cost efficiencies… and anything less should be considered a failure. Trying to figure out how the cloud will optimize your RTC service delivery models from today’s proprietary, complex and disjointed solution can be confusing. Join our two-part webinar series and learn how to avoid the myths and achieve the realities in delivering RTC services faster, more cost-effectively and at the scale you need with Sonus’s solutions.

There are numerous challenges in deploying real-time communication (RTC) cloud services, and many claims being made on their behalf. To clarify what cloud reality looks like, this first in a two-part webinar series will answer these questions:

  • What is meant by "RTC in the cloud?"
  • What are the success criteria for deploying RTC in the cloud?
  • What are the challenges to overcome?
  • How can a Session Border Controller (SBC) solve these challenges?
  • What innovation is required to optimize a “cloud SBC”?

Register to hear insights from Light Reading, BT, and Sonus, whose cloud-optimized portfolio is a key enabler for RTC in the Cloud.
