As WebRTC makes use of new mechanisms but also existing ones that have seen few  deployment in real networks to date. SDP’s generated by Web Browsers are more complex and contain a number of new attributes that are unfamiliar in SIP or IMS networks. In the following post, Antón analyses the anatomy of a WebRTC SDP, giving a detailed description of what all those lines do. ...  Continue reading
