    Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) -- the use by an employee of his or her personal device -- is increasingly popular. It has become feasible since consumer devices have equaled, and in some cases surpassed, corporate devices in power and functionality. GetVoIP has covered this issue before.

    The post Delving into WebRTC appeared first on WhichVoIP.com Blog. Last week, WhichVoIP provided an overview of a new technology changing the face of the Internet. WebRTC is an addition to core web code that gives developers the ability to implement real time communication systems directly into a web page. Thanks in large part to HTML5, this technology will change how most of us utilize the web. Currently, we rely on various plugins and extensions to make use of certain features over the web. Truly, these browser-based applications have provided an immense power to Internet users. However,…

    Today the news broke about AT&T locking the new Apple Universal SIM once a customer activates it.

    WebRTC has been in development for three years. Last month, GSMA issued a white paper on WebRTC codecs saying the IETF should require AMR, AMR-WB, and H.264 to avoid network transcoding. What the white paper avoids is a discussion of the expense and pain in the rear it is to license AMR-WB or other alternatives to mobile carriers. And greed may be part of the problem.

  • Wanna Use Skype's New Video Message App...Not So QIK

    Andy Abramson
    14 Oct 2014 | 3:34 pm
    I just started digging into the facts around the new Skype QIK video app and candidly, given the kind of expertise Skype and the QIK team have with video streaming, I would have expected MORE. Let's start with a side by side comparison of some of the more popular messaging apps that offer video messaging/chat: For starters, it doesn't stream. It's a download using a very old school approach of store and forward. Services like Glide leverage the cloud and have an almost INSTANT ON feel. Second Skype's 42 seconds isn't that long message but it is longer than SnapChat's…

I vividly remember telling the group that opportunities like BlackBerry 10 only come along rarely in a person’s career; that we were all going to work harder than we had ever worked before; that we were going to learn from each other; that it would be a roller coaster to get there; and that once BlackBerry 10 had launched, we would all look back on that experience as a “career defining moment”. They gave me their support and loyalty and we accomplished truly…

This was a moment we’d been working toward since before DevCon Americas in the fall.  I know there was a lot of pressure to show a phone last fall, but until the SDK’s were ready, and developers could actually use them, there would have been little point.  Instead we steadily built first the PlayBook OS 1.0 SDK, the PlayBook OS 2.0 SDK, and the PlayBook OS 2.0 software…
