WebRTC should use JESP or ROAP?

My understanding…

ROAP (hard questions answered via SIP experience):
Authored by Cullen Jennings @ Cisco, JDR @ Skype
– SDP-like offer/answer
http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft…

JESP (needs more definition?):
Authored by Just Uberti: Prod Mgr @ Google Hangouts & Google's Open Source Project webrtc.org:
– SDP-like offer/answer
– Removes network elements from SDP (STUN, TURN, ICE)
https://docs.google.com/document…

So which one? Not trying to stir the pot here, really do want to understand pros and cons of each.

Post your answer: WebRTC should use JESP or ROAP?

Free conference call providers are a dying breed


The days are numbered for all Free Conference Call services, it’s simply a matter of time. The big telcos have been a bit pissy for having to aid their competitors indirectly via the USF. The emotion over this has been coming to boil for years now and recently Free Conference Call provider Foonz fell, just a few days ago.

I am sure glad we decided to pull out of that Free Conference Call game long ago. Our conference call service “Lypp” (formerly Gaboogie) started by offering free conferencing but quickly decide that was a bad idea (duh!). Lypp is now cash flow positive, growing like crazy and not showing any signs of slowing down.

Andy's 2.0 Telco Top 10

Thanks for the mention Andy, I have been busy with my own projects for the last couple of years but I appreciate the fact you still remember some of the projects I had some significant success with, just a wee bit disappointed you forgot to mention them, that’s what I get for not speaking at eComm I guess 🙂

The list of course is bang-on, considering the source that should be no surprise.

I will in fact see become more active this year as my latest startup “SMB Phone” ramps towards general availability and launch. My last conference calling service provider startup “Lypp” is on auto-pilot and is growing nicely, thanks in part to Jay Phillips and adhearsion. The next stop for me will be at Internet Telephony Expo in Miami where I will be talking a bit about why we chose to build a new ITSP “SMB Phone” serving Microsoft’s new Response Point PBX.
