Conquering Scalable WebRTC Conferencing

Learn how to optimize media processing with MCU and SFU

Developers are embracing WebRTC technology for building their next generation services but leveraging only peer-to-peer topologies may not be enough. Having a deeper understanding of optimizing media processing through a variety of topologies is required for scalability, reliability and advanced functionality. These types of features can only be achieved with server-side media processing. But questions of which topology is best, when one topology vs another should be implemented, and the drawbacks of each topology can often lead to confusion. To help answer these questions, the white paper will discuss:

How peer-to-peer differs from peer-to-server and what advanced features are available when introducing a centralized media server

✓ How using a multi-point control unit (MCU) topology can benefit mobile and limited bandwidth clients

✓ How using a selective forwarding unit (SFU) topology can benefit performance and user-interface flexibility

✓ The benefits of having both topologies in a converged architecture available on-demand
