  • 15:00-17:30 DEMO TIME
    • Demo Time will be divided into 2 sessions, its aim is to be informal and provide ample networking opportunities for attendees to consolidate their learning from the workshop:
    • Demo presentation to the group: each demo will be 5 minutes long, and 5 minutes for questions. We’ll plan on 90 mins or so of demo presentations; and
    • Demo one-on-one: attendees can chat one-on-one with the demo presenters, notionally 30 minutes but can run on into discussions at the bar through the evening.
  • Zingaya (‘Call’ button for websites)
    • Embed a ‘Call’ button into the website. Visitors can click that button and the call is forwarded to the website operator’s preferred land-line or mobile phone. All that is required is a website; all the visitors need is a browser and microphone.
  • Voxeo Labs (Ameche (new IMS/Web services), Tropo (leading call control API), Phono (Web comms innovation))
    • They will demo Phono’s three types of identity:
    • Anonymous Identity: user lands on web site and is able to call directly into the contact center.
    • Web Identity: use your web identity (twitter, foursquare, etc) to call each other.
    • Telco Identity: Phono sessions can attach to the telco network and assume the real identity (phone number) of the subscriber, allowing calls to be routed to both the mobile and the browser simultaneously.
  • Telestax
    • Provides a complete stack from the client-side with Javascript JAIN SIP JS and WebRTC as well as the server side with our SIP Over WebSockets.  The demo will be of WebRTC video conferencing and IM.
  • Solaiemes WebRTC to Rich Communication Suite demo
    • Demonstration of RCS messaging and WebRTC to access media components of devices to renew the value of the PSTN (and also mobile) lines. It shows how unified communications can be built with just a mash-up of standards and APIs.
  • Quobis
    • Their approach to WebRTC is based on QoffeeSIP, a complete open source  Javascript SIP stack that can be used in a website to exploit all the multimedia capabilities of WebRTC technology. Thanks to QoffeeSIP they have developed a corporate WebRTC webphone that can interop with different network devices; this webphone is going to be released at IMS World Forum event.
  • Huawei leading NEP
    • WebRTC / RCS insurance application demo
  • Drum by NetDev (conference calls and online meetings)
    • Allows providers of fixed, mobile and next generation VoIP services to deliver audio conferencing as a direct, branded service.  Hosted within your IP network on your servers, Drum audio conferencing is a standalone software solution with an integrated media server.
  • Bistri (Social Video)
    • Video chat with fun video effects, take screenshots of calls, share them with friends or social networks.   Bistri runs in the browser, so there’s no need to install additional software or plugins.
    • Is a cloud communications API for developers with tools for building web or mobile communication services, with a special focus on WebRTC. The demo will show how a web developer can easily use the regular WebRTC API to place calls to external numbers and audio conference rooms accessible from the PSTN too, using a simple raw WebSocket connection that carries JSON text.

    Please let me know if there will be any video of the event (either live streaming or stored) that may be viewed. My wife had scheduled surgery for the dates of the conference.

    Thank you,
