Web Real Time Communications (WebRTC): A new weapon for SaaS providers or a lethal injection for telecom providers?

Posted by Raj Sharma on Jul 31, 2014 9:29:26 AM

Technologies follow interesting twists and turns along the adoption curve. It often proves most of the experts wrong, if not relative to how it gets adopted, certainly relative to the timing of its adoption.
