WebRTC is a technology that allows web browsers and iOS, Android or IoT devices to send and receive real-time media, demand for which has been driven by the increase in remote working, teleconferencing and distance learning, as well as the growth of online call centers and online translation.

To meet the evolving needs of the marketplace, NTT Com has now launched ECL WebRTC, a fully-fledged commercial service based on the technologies used in SkyWay.
