We just released a new version for testRTC. It has some nice tweaks and improvements - and a brand new dashboard: http://testrtc.com/introducing-dashboard/ #WebRTC
We’ve been working hard these past two months, ever since we got our previous release out the door. This time, we invested a lot of time and thought on the small items. And one big item as well. All over the service, you’ll notice some slight changes to the UI. This is an ongoing process to …

I decided it was time to write the state of WebRTC test automation from my viewpoint as one of the co-founders of testRTC: http://bit.ly/1ZQxkGV (hint: it isn't pretty, but there are ways to get started with it)
There are good reasons for WebRTC test automation in your roadmap. Here's why and where you should start (hint: testRTC)...

Facebook shutting down Parse made me think a lot about WebRTC lately, and what do you really get from a WebRTC API vendor: http://bit.ly/1pyWX2Y
The selection of a WebRTC PaaS vendor isn't a simple one. Picking a vendor with a large developers ecosystem doesn't make it impervious...

Why is the SFU and NOT an MCU the winning video conferencing model in WebRTC deployments: http://bit.ly/1QFz8wY
When it comes to WebRTC multiparty video, the most common architecture out there is SFU. The reason for it is cost and complexity.

MCU? SFU? Mesh? How do you like your WebRTC video conference? And while at it, how does that look in the network: http://bit.ly/1L5t83P
There are different ways to implement WebRTC multiparty video conferences. Mesh, SFU and MCU architectures come to mind. How do they actually look like on the network?

Worried about hardware acceleration for VPx codecs in WebRTC? Here's the latest on VP9 - we're getting there :-) http://bit.ly/28Igw5A
VP9 is starting to find its way into chipsets, making VP9 hardware acceleration a reality. How is this turning out, and what the future of video coding looks like?

Here's my take on LinkedIn acquisition by Microsoft. Albeit from my own RTC / WebRTC viewpoint: http://bit.ly/1Uhr1e9
Microsoft just acquired LinkedIn. What are the points of integration, and will WebRTC and real time communications be a part of it?

What do you think? Is WebRTC a distraction? http://bit.ly/1piXZje
Dave decided that WebRTC is a distraction, deeming it dangerous. I think his post is a dangerous distraction, and dismissing WebRTC is bad for your health.

When it comes to testing WebRTC services, there are advantages to using real browsers to simulate your traffic. Here's why we chose this route with testRTC: http://bit.ly/1R6inuk
Choosing to focus on the browser in our testRTC architecture lets us be agile and flexible in ways impossible to achieve otherwise.

Is anything that is going on around RCS (and Google and RCS) changes the approach we should have towards WebRTC? I say no. The two serve different purposes inside Google: http://bit.ly/21Dd4dt
Google partnering with carriers and the GSMA around RCS won't change its efforts around WebRTC or the bright future ahead of WebRTC.

Introduction

My name is Tsahi Levent-Levi and I am an independent consultant. I also work part time as a Product Manager at Amdocs.

During the past decade I have worked at RADVISION, taking part in the development of various VoIP and 3G projects as a programmer, manager and marketer. This included developing the 3G-324M protocol stacks from scratch, as well as managing the team that was in charge of developing and maintaining the H.323 protocol stack. In addition to my work at RADVISION, I have an MSc in Computer Science and an MBA degree with a focus in Entrepreneurship and Strategy.  I have also been granted two patents related to 3G-324M call optimizations. Additionally, I act as the chairman of the IMTC IMS Activity Group, which focuses on interoperability issues relating to IMS client. I am also an active participant in other international organizations dealing with standardization and interoperability in the video conferencing industry such as the 3GPP, ITU and GCF. Currently I am taking part in developing an innovative video client project being developed by RADVISION.

I am blogging a lot about WebRTC, VoIP and my industry in numerous places.

When I am not working and blogging I enjoy playing with my two great kids, developing new culinary innovations in my suburban Tel Aviv kitchen, and practicing Argentinean Tango with my lovely wife.

I have started working with Xilium by a referral from a friend half a year ago, and have been moving more and more of my HTML and Wordpress work needs to them. The Xilium team is great. They are timely, professional and courteous in all of their dealings with me. I tend to think of them as an extension of my own business and an enabler to my success.
