Technology runs on a fast and steady pace that keeps everyone on their toes. Innovations, start-ups, and more tech trends are launched at extremely fast rate, consequently shifting the global perception of the world. With its large impact, technology becomes a mandatory aspect in humanâ€™s daily life.
It is now mandatory for businesses to learn, adapt, implement, advance, and evolve along with it.
In essence, business and technology share one fundamental element: human interaction. The demand for flawless and real-time message exchange in the business world is a crucial factor that can determine the profit or loss of a company. For this reason, it is a matter of importance to apply a reliable, fast, and practical online messaging tool that works in every platform.
Web Real-Time Communication, or WebRTC, is an emerging standard of web communication that makes high-definition, high-resolution, low-bandwidth video, audio chat, and peer-to-peer data transfer as simple as a single browser link. It is the mode of telecommunication that allows instant information exchange with the live transmission system.
Deemed as the future of online communications worldwide, WebRTC providesÂ benefits ranging from improving customer service, increasing efficiency, to boosting significant sales and many more.Â
In terms of development, WebRTC is believed to be just entering its infancy phase but it is happening. There will still be many major improvements and advances along the way. All which says, welcome onboard to WebRTC.
WebRTC Growth in Asia
In November 2015, Beijing – the Silicon Valley of China – held the first major WebRTC and Real Time Web event in Asia. Attended by over 600 participants from China, Japan, Korea, South-East Asia, Australia and the United States, it is now becoming an annual WebRTC conference and event in Beijing.
In attendance was an equal mix of key players in the industry from many prominent WebRTC leaders, software developers, and business speakers. Several names in participation were Agora, Baidu Alibaba, VIPABC, and Intel, marking this event as an important staple of WebRTC in Asia.
The take up of WebRTC rate varies as it depends on the browsers that users are using. For example, most users in China are using Internet Explorer [which does not support WebRTC] while users in Indonesia and Thailand are mostly using Mozilla or Chrome, which are already supporting WebRTC.
While Spain and The United States are claimed to be the emerging WebRTC hotspots, Asia is expected to be the fastest growing market for eCommerce and Internet usage in the next decade. The development of many of these services will happen in Asia, as well, from Singapore, Philippines, Indonesia, and India.
