webrtc support

How is the support for WebRTC. Can a 3rd party WebRTC client join a VC hosted on RMX?

Also, can Group series endpoints, Debut, Camera enabled VVX phones etc join 3rd party Bridge (directly or via Polycom infra) which supports WebRTC VP8 codec.

Re: webrtc support

Hi Harish,


Most third party bridges will do transcoding of the webrtc feed into something supported by the polycom endpoint. I'm not currently aware of any bridge that uses webrtc exclusively but accepts connections from standards based endpoints. As far as I know, and you can just check the datasheet and latest firmware release to confirm, the endpoints themselves do not use webrtc. 


I am pretty sure rmx itself is compatible with webrtc clients but I can't remember if polycoms browser offering, websuite, could do it or not. We were using websuite up till last year and it was done exclusively through the websuite app and didn't support anything native in the browsers. this may have changed though

I suggest you contact a Polycom Sales Employee directly to discuss this solution as it all depends on the individual components and what we actually support etc.
