Drum Selects Epsilon for Co-location Services to Support Real-time Communications
Drum’s cloud-based web meeting platform will use Epsilon’s co-location services to deliver IP and WebRTC-based communications and collaboration tools
LONDON, 27 April 2016 – Epsilon, a privately owned global communications service provider, was selected by Drum, a leading telco apps developer, to deliver co-location services to support the growth of its browser-based Drum web meeting platform. Drum web meetings combine WebRTC with CSS3 and HTML5 to deliver a meeting platform. Drum offers users instant access to flexible browser-based communications and collaboration tools inside a web meeting.
Drum delivers a comprehensive set of features that include browser-based audio, PSTN dial-in, messaging, document sharing and collaboration, chat, screen sharing, with immediate integration into 20+ existing business apps. All meetings created with Drum can be played back in real-time whilst the new Slack integration allows users to create meetings instantly using the /drum slash command. Drum is pioneering in the development and application of real-time communications while integrating fixed, mobile, WebRTC voice into a single solution.
“Quality of Service (QoS) and reliable underlying infrastructure is critical to the success of WebRTC and any real-time applications. Epsilon demonstrated they understand not only the traditional voice world but the rapid innovations currently developing within browser-based applications and communications services. As our Drum instant web meetings continue to grow, we appreciate Epsilon’s ability to deliver QoS at scale,” said John Logsdon, CEO and founder of Drum.
Drum will use Epsilon’s UK-based co-location services providing immediate access to 500+ operator networks in 170+ countries. Epsilon has more than a decade of experience delivering co-location services in the UK offering service providers direct connectivity to major cloud service providers, particularly those with real time communications needs.
“Drum is a unique service that is showing the way forward for WebRTC and browser-based communication. Our co-location services offers it reliable infrastructure that is ready to scale with adoption. Epsilon has had a lot of success supporting both fully hosted Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and Hybrid Cloud solutions and this is another opportunity to support a growing and innovative service provider,” said Jerzy Szlosarek, CEO at Epsilon. “WebRTC is a exciting opportunity and we are well positioned to support its development.”
In 2016, Drum launched its instant web meeting API enabling organisations to immediately embed web meetings into existing services and websites with either JS or HTML. This streamlines access to meetings and removes the limits on communicating quickly and securely via the web.
Drum, formed in 2011 by John Logsdon, utilises WebRTC combined with HTML5 and CSS3 to deliver browser-based web meetings inside your existing service and/or website. Drum’s in-house expertise ensure your web meetings are just as effective as your previous meeting. Drum offers two separate versions of web meetings. The first which is an embeddable web meeting API. The second offering is a standalone web meeting solution for your meetings and meeting management hosted in the UK and USA.
