Established in 2017, SignalWire is the developer of an open-source enterprise communication platform intended to build the core technology for communication products, applications, or enterprise infrastructure. SignalWire's platform makes use of web socket protocol and provides simultaneous bidirectional data transmission and elastic communications cloud with an application programming interface for voice, text, and video, allowing developers to create applications and technical products on a managed elastic framework.
SignalWire's goal is to develop a worldwide network that can transport real-time communications over secure standards-based channels and make it all accessible to developers and businesses using SDKs and programming interfaces. Audio/Video applications can be made with SignalWire that operate in the mobile browser without additional software and allow an experience that can unlock communications with a virtual office, AI bots, PSTN termination, gateways to remote call centers, and others. SignalWire's core is made up of different networked nodes changing the computing power of its host system into IP-based telecommunications relays. The breadth of the software-powered global telecommunications company's technology ranges from mature interfaces like SIP and PSTN to techniques in live video and HD audio.
The company's technology is used by companies like Zoom, Netflix, Amazon, Ring, and Dialpad. RELAY, SignalWire's next-generation APIs, can be integrated and designed for asynchronous control—enabling responsive interactions and application logic. Users can build different voice, video, and messaging applications with advanced command and control. They can embed video experiences without setting up complex systems for signaling or firewall traversal, integrate programmable SMS to reach customers on the preferred channel, and integrate voice capabilities into their applications, third-party applications, or existing voice-over IP (VoIP) infrastructure. Signalwire's elastic cloud network is designed as a distributed system. Nodes are containerized and orchestrated to operate across various public and private cloud providers worldwide.
