Full Featured Instant Messaging

IM

Our first release of instant messaging functionality offered limited number of functions for 1-to-1 communication, we’ve been working on instant messaging upgrade that enables group messaging, messaging history, contact list control and other capabilities for full featured IM system. IM/presence should be explicitly enabled in VoxImplant application settings before it’s available.

We are working on the tutorial explaining how to use new functionality and will update our simple messenger application on GitHub in the near future. Other features for IM we have in the roadmap: search in history, checking presence from VoxEngine scenarios, sending messages from VoxEngine scenarios and via HTTP API.

New Instant Messaging functionality is only available in WebRTC mode

Web SDK improvements

VoxImplant Web SDK now supports Temasys WebRTC plugin for IE/Safari. We are working on ORTC support in Edge, but a lot of companies still use IE/Safari and want to have access to VoxImplant functionality in these browsers.

Video calls support without access to local webcam is now possible, just set videoSupport to true and videoConstraints to false in config during the SDK initialization:

VoxImplant.getInstance().init({
  micRequired: true,
  videoSupport: true, 
  videoConstraints: false
});

Now you can make/receive video calls, but your camera won’t be used, if you want to stream your video you can use VideoSettings or CallSettings depending on the app logic.

Where CPaaS Deploy their Networks - a Comparison

Where CPaaS Deploy their Networks - a Comparison

A couple weeks ago, Amazon Web Services (AWS) experienced an outage in its US-EAST-1 region. As so many services rely on AWS, this outage had a broader impact, causing outages and various issues with Amazon’s own Ring services, online retailers, and even the New York City MTA. In addition, a couple major Communications Platform as a Service (CPaaS) providers also reported issues (Voximplant was not impacted), potentially impacting the communications of many of their customers.  With this in mind, now is a good time to look at how CPaaS offers leverage public cloud infrastructure and review the factors involved in providing reliable, high quality communications services. In this post we will review the public cloud infrastructure used by several major CPaaS vendors and discuss the implications of their choices.
