Sneak Preview: AT&T at WebRTC World (May 12-14 in Miami)
Guest post by Jason Unrein, Senior Product Marketing Manager
There are going to be quite a few WebRTC solution providers at the WebRTC World Conference in Miami, May 12-14. Everyone will be highlighting how their solution is different and unique from other options. AT&T will be there, and here is a sneak preview of what you can expect to see.
We started off with features available through the evolving standard, and added one of the most important forms of identity that people use every day…their AT&T mobile phone number.
Our vision is to enable developers to harness the power of the AT&T mobile phone number by enabling them to create unique experiences for customers that we share. By enabling developers access to this identity (with the user’s consent), they can enable communication and information sharing through their app with an identity that is already familiar to the end user. This lowers barriers of adoption by eliminating the need to create yet another user ID and password to use their service, which is common with other solutions.
Here’s how it works: When an AT&T Mobility customer provides consent to the app and receives a call, it will ring the mobile phone and ring in the browser of the app being used. The customer can choose which is more convenient for them to answer. When a call is made from the app within the browser, the AT&T mobile phone number will come across on caller ID. AT&T Mobility customers can also ‘move’ a call that was started on the browser to their mobile device, and take the call on the go.
This is just a glimpse of some of the features we’ve introduced to date. Please visit us at the WebRTC World Conference in Miami, May 12-14 to learn more. We have a keynote session on Tuesday May, 12th starting at 4:20 p.m. and we will be part of a panel “What’s Next in the Web Age of Communications?” on Thursday, May 14th starting at 1:00 p.m. Also, Plantronics, who is one of our beta program customers, will be giving a demo and covering how they are using the AT&T Enhanced WebRTC API.
Please stop by our expo booth, as well, we would enjoy sharing more about our AT&T Enhanced WebRTC Beta API, and also hear how you plan on using WebRTC.
