Crocodile RCS has announced that its SuperNode cloud communications systems and hosted RCS service now support HTML5-based applications using RTCweb and WebSockets standards. HTML5 is a Worldwide Web Consortium (W3C (News - Alert)) standard supported by all the leading browsers.
RTCweb is an IETF standard developed to allow direct interactive rich communications between browsers. WebSockets is an IETF standard that facilitates two-way communication between untrusted code running within a browser and a remote host.
Crocodile RCS is a U.K.-based innovative provider of systems and solutions powering the deployment of rich communication services on an open, next-generation platform. Its reliable, scalable systems and solutions cater to telecom service providers worldwide.
Crocodile RCS is a subsidiary of Devoteam Group, a major European provider of IT and Telecoms consulting services.
“HTML5 and associated standards will revolutionize the way users access communications from both fixed and mobile devices,” said John Parr, Crocodile's MD. “They allow Web applications to control real-time voice and video communications directly from the browser, making it unnecessary to download soft clients or apps. This will likely spark a new wave of innovative Web applications and services. It's a huge benefit to developers for their app or service to run seamlessly across many types of phone or other device – rather than needing to rely on the underlying capabilities of the OS.”
“Our current SuperNode release, aptly named SuperNode 2.0, supports the latest WebSockets standards – RFC 6455  and draft-ietf-sipcore-sip-websocket-01 ,” he added. “Versions of all the common browsers are already available with HTML5, WebSocket, and RTCweb support - so it's only a matter of time before this technology becomes mainstream. Crocodile has already deployed the network capability to support it.”
Devoteam was recently in the news when Devoteam Belgium appointed Jean-Luc Lemire as interim CEO for the company. Devoteam Belgium declared that its head Dirk De Bosscher will be resigning from this post.
