Openvocs is a simple, open and flexible architecture for Space Mission Control Room Voice Conferencing Systems. It contains a custom systems library build around an independent WebRTC gateway implementation in combination with a Microservices based Media Conferencing backend. Both components are integrated using a command and control server infrastructure based on JSON event messaging technologies.
As client interface openvocs will provide a webbased implementation based on a Secure Websockets Signaling channel in combination with a WebRTC based media channel. The client makes use of, and showcases, the openvocs API.
Openvocs SHALL enable system designs with component-based implementations and interoperability between different vendors for different parts of the system. Focus of openvocs development is to enable collaboration independent of location and device access.
