Skylink CPaaS Platform
The Skylink Platform enables you to deliver business-class collaboration and communication functionality across your employee and customer-facing touchpoints. Temasys takes care of all of the details in regard to deployments, network performance, and global reach to allow you to focus on the bottom line and getting the most efficiency possible in your user experiences.
What is Web Scale?
Scaling web servers is a documented art compared to scaling real-time communications infrastructure which requires endless research and specialized configurations. Our platform was specifically designed to support these requirements. We provide real-time communication services scaling from one-on-one calls to millions of users with ease.
Should you run your own server?
You definitely can. However, we believe that adding real-time communication features to applications brings enormous value to the end-users. It also requires high expertise to manage and deploy real-time infrastructure. We manage global real-time communication infrastructure even for single applications since it is not a value addition to most businesses and developers.
With protocol and transport overhead, it takes 150ms to take a round trip for a server in New York to Tokyo with the best connectivity. Temasys has services deployed and optimally routed to support users around the globe, on the fastest networks available.
GEOGRAPHIC LOAD BALANCING
Our servers are deployed globally across most AWS regions. We solve faults and failures in several stages. For example, we accumulate and divide the load balance equally on each server in a multi-threaded environment across CPU cores. In this scenario, if a single thread dies, it can be brought back to life in zero downtime while the load is being distributed across the remaining cores.
We also load balance across servers in a given region and across availability zones as a second stage of redundancy. In the event of a catastrophe, such as hardware failure or internet outage in a given region, we can re-route the traffic to the other regions with minimal interruption as a backup option.
We provide fault-tolerant and redundant services. This is extremely important to the clients working in healthcare, telemedicine, or financial services. In terms of transferring files, all media streams are fully encrypted, end-to-end by default. We have built our very own signaling stack and use the latest technology for real-time communication on the web.
MEDIA RELAY SERVICES
If you have users behind strict firewalls or messy corporate networks, We recommend you avail Skylink’s TURN services. This is a routed media service that improves your connection success rate from (+10% to +20%) with a click on the account management console. TURN helps you find the best routes to send media between endpoints. If it is difficult to find direct routes between endpoints, it will assist and route the media streams between your users. Our pricing system is simple, you pay as per your usage.
SELECTIVE FORWARDING UNIT
A Selective Forwarding Unit (SFU) is used to perform stream transformations and manipulations that cannot be easily supported in a strict peer-to-peer interaction. Our SFU helps take the load off of your hardware when connecting to a larger number of participants or endpoints.
If you want to connect to more than 3-4 endpoints in an interaction, it may be difficult for your device to manage video rendering or audio without jitter or dropping packets. With the Temasys SFU (MCU) you can scale interactions for more users by taking some of the load and transferring that work for the servers that can handle routing of the media streams between endpoints. All streams remain encrypted and secured as you provide a high-quality experience to your users.
We have no restrictions or limitations on the resolutions of video or quality of the audio streams. The best part is you pay for the actual bandwidth you use.
RECORDING AND ARCHIVING
The Temasys SFU allows you to securely record, archive interactions, added to the AWS S3 bucket. You will find this service extremely useful if you have to audit or monitor calls for quality purposes.
While the first generation MCU/SFU was consequential in helping our customers achieve efficient media processing and recording capabilities, the launch of the Temasys MCU 2.0 is a salient part of our ongoing efforts towards enhancing the customer experience.
Rigorously redesigned from the ground up, MCU 2.0 delivers distinctly improved performance over MCU 1.0, marked by an entirely new operational and media processing architecture, superior stability and fault resilience, and new functional capabilities as outlined below.
