Adding Multiparty Video Conferencing
to Traditional VoIP/PSTN Telephony
Telephony has made great strides by making use of the Internet as a backbone for communications using VoIP. Currently, audio/video offerings such as FaceTime and Skype are making it mainstream for everyday conversations to include video along with audio. Adding video to traditional audio transmissions is the next challenge for telephony companies.
Frozen Mountain’s LiveSwitch provides the key Internet-Based Real-Time Communications (iRTC) components required for telephony companies to provide integrated voice, video, chat and data to their customers.
LiveSwitch, our newest audio/video streaming solution, features SIP integration which allows you to support traditional VoIP and PSTN architectures.

Telephony data transmission costs have been reduced substantially by VoIP. LiveSwitch adds an Internet of Things (IoT) approach, combining Internet transmission with standard devices such as tablets, smartphones and video desk phones to provide a secure mechanism for telephony companies to provide industry leading real-time communications services to their customers.
How It Works
This chart is an example of how LiveSwitch could be used in a telephony application.
WebRTC signaling is used to control and monitor the conversations. LiveSwitch can also take the audio component of a stream, convert it to SIP media transport for VoIP, and also convert the returning VoIP audio into an audio-only LiveSwitch stream. At the same time, participants with full audio/video devices could share both audio and video with each other.
LiveSwitch includes all the power of multiparty WebRTC media streaming and signaling in one complete package, ideal for server-based real-time applications.
