On November 19, 2014 Twilio announced the launch of their Network Traversal Service. Network Traversal Service (NTS) brings low latency, cost effective, reliable STUN and TURN capabilities to WebRTC and other communication platform developers, with service distributed across five continents. Twilio originally developed STUN and TURN as a component of their Client. Once built it, Twilio felt that developers building their own real-time communications service would benefit from this service so they wanted to ‘unbundle’ it and make it available as a standalone service.
Twilio, the software and cloud-based communications platform, enables developers and businesses to rapidly build and deploy communication solutions that meet their specific needs. Whether integrating voice, messaging and/or VoIP capabilities into a web or mobile app or building a complete system like a call center, Twilio removes the traditional obstacles to creating effective communications experiences. Twilio gives businesses the ability to innovate, prototype, create, and connect with their customers at the right time and in the way. The company is privately held and based in San Francisco, California.
