Online call from a browser using the Click to Call function

A user clicks the “Call” button in the browser. The browser establishes connection to Web Call Server and initiates a call to a mobile telephone via SIP-GSM / PSTN gateway of the telecoms provider. Therefore, we receive two-directional voice communication between a user of the browser and a subscriber of the telephony network.

Step-by-step diagram of an online call from a browser to a GSM phone via a SIP-GSM gateway

  1. The browser invokes the “call” function.
  2. The Web Call Server converts the call from the browser to the INVITE request readable by the SIP-GSM gateway.
  3. The SIP-GSM gateway makes a call to the remote callee.
  4. The callee answers the call.
  5. The SIP-GSM gateway sends a “200 OK” SIP status response confirming the callee has responded.
  6. The Web Call Server returns the “ESTABLISHED” status to the browser, which means the connection is established successfully.
  7. A connection is established between the browser and the SIP device, and the voice traffic is transmitted. The traffic runs through Web Call Server and through the SIP-GSM gateway.
