Protocol implementation and design. Tuned to your use-case.

We have created clean room implementations of a variety of IETF and other protocols, such as 9P SNMP, SRTP, ICE, STUN, IAX2.

We are currently expanding this list to cover the rest of the stack required to implement the RTCWeb specifications

We take an active if skeptical role in helping form new standards.


Tim and Alex talking about webRTC at Google SF.

We can help developers understand your API or service. Or help you understand your developers better.

We can assist you in designing your developer facing API and then speak at events or on TV/radio/podcasts, blog, participate in hackathons and build example applications (such as YoPet) to help developers understand the possibilities of your service offer.

We can also take part in pilot deployments, working with your customers to get the best outcome for both you and them.


Whitespace experiment

Thought leadership and prototyping.

We have a long history of looking at the interface between regulation and technology to predict and prototype trends.
Current examples:

Small 3g cells with atypical connectivity, services and coverage based on Range Networks equipment.

Over the top and hypervoice applications which will replace or enhance the current PSTN services

Experiments in the lightly licensed ex-TV whitespace radio spectrum - for example testing realtime webRTC video over whitespace protocols.
