Integrating Plantronics Call Control with WebRTC


One of the big things that I think will radically transform the communications industry is an emerging technology called WebRTC.  In a nutshell WebRTC will provide web browser vendors standards-based signaling protocols, codecs and security for interoperable real-time voice and video (and data) communications.  What this means for web developers is that the barriers for introducing real time communications will be significantly lowered and will no longer require the use of a browser plugin.

 

To find out more about what WebRTC is and the current state of the standards development, I would recommend watching this video by Cisco Fellow Cullen Jennings http://vimeo.com/47682405.

Plantronics SDK: REST Service


One of the features in the Plantronics SDK is a REST Service that exposes Plantronics device features and call control feature via a RESTful interface.

The call control features include a way to notify about incoming/outgoing calls to Hub, get call state change events and a way to make call via a default Soft phone.

By the end of this posting, you should have your very own application that allows you to access the contextual information within a Plantronics headset and tweet to the world about.

Let's get started...
