Technology Innovators Google and Plantronics Sign on as Diamond Sponsors of WebRTC Conference & Expo

TMC, Systemwide Media and PKE Consulting announced that Google and Plantronics will be Diamond level sponsors of their inaugural WebRTC Conference and Expo, November 27 – 29, 2012, at the South San Francisco Conference Center.

WebRTC Conference and Expo is the event where the architects, enablers, and users of Web Real-Time Communication (RTC) will gather to advance the standards, and discover the most promising emerging applications for WebRTC.

Google has been an early champion of WebRTC, open sourcing key components of the technology and recently adding it to the beta version of its Chrome web browser. By adding WebRTC to Chrome, which is downloaded by millions of consumers, Google illustrates that WebRTC is the next big thing in voice and video chat.

WebRTC is also a key technology for Plantronics. “With the simple communications integration and open standards, WebRTC will create an explosion in collaboration and new applications,” noted Joe Burton, senior vice president and CTO at Plantronics. “As a leader in optimizing the audio communications experience, Plantronics sees WebRTC dramatically increasing the need for integrated personal audio devices to enable this communication.”

“Google and Plantronics are pioneers in their support of WebRTC, a disruptive technology which will undoubtedly change how the world communicates,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO of TMC and Conference Chairman. “We’re thrilled to welcome these industry trailblazers as sponsors of WebRTC Conference & Expo.”

In addition to Google and Plantronics, WebRTC Conference and Expo is supported by platinum sponsors including Thrupoint, Zingaya, Ericsson and Sansay, Gold Sponsors including Drum, Oracle, PubNub, Twillo, Bistri, Mozilla, TenHands, Joyent and Tropo, and Silver Sponsors AddLive, Sangoma and Priologic Software.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...
