Dialogic solves a WebRTC NAT problem for TADHack in days with Juju and now anybody can use the solution in minutes. Mid May Alan Quayle, the organiser of the first telecom application developer hackaton – TADHack, contacts Ubuntu and says that one of the sponsors suggested to setup a TURN and STUN server for the beginning of June event. They included a link to somebody from Dialogic that explains how to set-up an open source TURN and STUN server. Many developers love the in-browser multi-media communication standard WebRTC. However in big events IP address translations often get in the way. The solution is setting up a TURN and STUN server. The event had many satellite offices around the world so manually setting up multiple TURN and STUN servers was not really the ideal solution. So Ubuntu contacted Dialogic. Dialogic are experts in media-rich communications but they are not really involved in this open source TURN or STUN server project. However they were glad to make a Juju charm for it. Some days later the charm was born. The good news is that now on any WebRTC event that needs a TURN or STUN server you can set one up in two clicks. Ubuntu wants to thank Dialogic for coming up with a solution on such short notice…
