WebRTC-SIP Gateway Development


We are constantly improving our WebRTC2SIP stack, introducing new enhancements such as changes to reflect the latest industry standards, new features, bug fixes, optimizations.

All the important modules were developed by Mizutech from scratch with special care for performance, interoperability and robustness. These includes a high performance network stack, full featured SIP and WebRTC stack, media stack, TURN and STUN modules, routing module, rate limiter and many many more. For some modules we are using third-party open source solutions (executable as-is or unmodified linked library binary formats, conform to their license and all laws in all circumstances). This includes openssl (for TLS, HTTPS, WSS), opus (audio codec), speex (audio codec), x264 (video codec), VP8 (video codec), freeswitch (for some PBX features), lego (for Let's Encrypt), slimpftp (for recorded voice file access) and a few others other rarely used tools such as unzip and ffmpeg.

The WebRTC gateway is backward compatible. This means that you can just install over your existing old instance to get the new benefits.
Note: the MRTC gateway consists of multiple modules with different version numbers. (For example the MRTC core, the SIP stack, the WebRTC stack, the media stack, the admin client or the installer itself). These modules are coupled together in the final executable and installed for you with an easy to follow setup wizard.
The below listed version numbers are our main branch numbers and you might see different version numbers for the included software components.

Major changes for the Mizu WebRTC-SIP gateway (MRTC) are listed below.

MRTC 2.0.2 - Tuesday, June 13, 2017

This is a small upgrade with some bug fixes addressing a few minor issues.

We also fixed the download link on the website (previously the default download link was pointed to an old release).

 
MRTC 2.0.1 - Saturday, April 22, 2017

This is a new release which can be considered as an upgrade over the previous 2.0 version. Changes includes:
  • New: tutorial (step by step setup guide which can be followed even by people with no VoIP knowledge)
  • Bug: fixed problem regarding TCP candidates for WebRTC-WebRTC calls (which sometimes caused call disconnects)
  • Bug: fixed a few minor annoying issues in the configuration wizard
  • Bug: fixed "no config saved" problem which occured in some circumstances with the wizard
  • Improvement: TCP candidates now available also for WebRTC to SIP
  • Improvements for TURN processing
  • A few other improvements for NAT handling
  • A few other minor GUI improvements
  • Added x64 (64 bit) binaries (important for the Large edition to be able to use more RAM)
  • Database back-end options tailored for your exact needs: 
    • Built-In compact (with the Free, Small and Medium editions)
    • SQL Express (with the Medium and Large editions)
    • Full SQL Engine (with the Large and Gold editions)
    Note: For up to 300 simultaneous calls the built-in engine is just fine.
    A
    lthough database usage is not that heavy with the default settings (as the gateway will store only configurations and statistics in the database) the SQL engine is more robust then the built-in compact engine and will also increase your gateway performance under heavy traffic, especially above 500 concurrent calls.
