Last week, we joined ITEXPO Miami 2014, along with what was anticipated to be over 200 exhibiters and over 7,000 attendees. Situated in the Enterprise WebRTC Pavilion, we had a blast educating attendees about OnSIP's InstaCall Beta, a ground-breaking channel for sales and support teams to have instant, secure, video-enabled communications.
InstaCall is an end-to-end solution that allows website visitors to initiate a web-based voice or video call to a company's hosted PBX simply by clicking a button. Sales and support agents on the other end can answer incoming calls with their own designated browser phone and start receiving contextual information about the caller before they even pick up the call.
Here are a few pictures of me, Nicole Hayward, VP of Marketing & Product Development here at OnSIP, talking about how we've integrated WebRTC into our mature real-time communications platform:
And here's a tease: Next week, this functionality will be available to our customers (you'll receive an email announcement), and we are now offering support to service providers who'd like to integrate WebRTC with their own communications platforms. If you're a service provider looking to leverage the triumph that is WebRTC-to-SIP-to-PSTN calls in any way, shape, or form that fits your platform and customers, let us know here.

Update 2014-01-29: RFC7118 has now been officially published. The full specification can be found on the IETF Tools site.
WebRTC developers rejoice! Yesterday, the IETF assigned an RFC number to the SIP WebSocket specification, a drafted document to standardize transporting SIP signaling using HTML5's realtime WebSocket API. The new document, The WebSocket Protocol as a Transport for the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), will be published as RFC7118.
This is big news for WebRTC developers. WebRTC is a free, open source project that enables browsers with Real-Time Communications. When building an application with real time communications, however, one of the first things developers realize is that while WebRTC provides a high quality media stack right in your browser, it does not mandate a certain signaling protocol. This leaves application developers to research many complex protocols or to write their own homegrown signaling.

We're proud to announce our latest addition to our unique on-hold experience. OnSIP customers now have the ability to choose high-quality music streams and customize promotional announcements that their callers will hear on hold. This means OnSIP customers can now insert custom music, advertisements, company announcements, self-recorded messages, or any other pertinent audio media, into their on-hold music. Additionally, these custom messages can be scheduled to play at specific times on specific days!

Mike Steiner, Porting Manager
It's hard to believe that 2014 is here and it's time for New Year's resolutions again. I do need to exercise more, but let's face it, it's too cold to go for a walk outside during my lunch break to burn a few calories. I think a more realistic goal for me this year will be to reduce stress and improve my efficiency at work and home. One thing is for sure, it can be pretty stressful keeping track of all the numbers porting into OnSIP on any given day. We currently have a great system in place, but there is always room for improvement.
To help accomplish my goals, I'll be on the lookout for new programs and apps to enhance my work and make me more productive. I already use Google Drive, but I'm sure it has more to offer than I'm currently using. Evernote is another app that I need to explore more to help me be as organized as possible. Without a doubt, there will be many more productivity apps released in 2014 for me to try.
