The main point is that the organization can implement its own Kurento Communicator service without relying on any third party service. Kurento communicator can be deployed on servers with standard intel architectures and OS Linux. Besides architecture is based on Java EE and Spring so it is highly scalable and depending on the needs can be deployed on a server cluster so that allows access to large volumes of customers.

A very remarkable aspect of Kurento Communicator is its modularity and adaptability. It is feasible to adapt it in a simple way to the specific needs of each organization:

  • A2P services (aplication to person) where service users can communicate not only among them, but also with the services and IT systems in the organization.
  • Adaptable to different terminals and network configurations
  • Integration with the organization users and groups repositories (LDAP for example).
