IMS Centric Communication Supporting WebRTC Endpoints

Bruno Cruz, João Paulo Barraca, "IMS Centric Communication Supporting WebRTC Endpoints", Proc. 2015 IEEE Symposium on Computers and Communications, Cyprus, Jul 2015


With the evolution of technologies such as WebRTC and telecommunication (Telco) architectures aligned with the latest 3GPP standards, the search for interoperability between traditional and web-oriented endpoints is vital, with new use- cases and multimedia services to be explored. Currently, convergence goes beyond the standards and, as such, its search and the technological obstacles motivate this work. We make a proposal for the implementation of a platform uniting state-of- the-art Telco networks with WebRTC technologies. To validate the solution, an IMS integrated prototype was built, being evaluated in terms of call throughput and system induced mouth- to-ear delay. Results show that call delay is on par with current mobile network calls, making the current solution a viable alternative for communication bridging in a Telco network.
