Agora currently processes between 300 million to 500 million minutes of communications per day through its network, providing Real-time Communication and Real-time Interactive Broadcasting solutions for a wide range of industries and verticals, including social discovery, online dating, retail, telehealth, mobile gaming, education, enterprise productivity, and more. The Agora SD-RTN(TM) is the only mobile-first platform created to empower next-generation mobile applications, including real-time use cases like live trivia, social gaming, and much more.


With over 200 globally distributed data centers, Agora's SD-RTN(TM) delivers uninterrupted, high-quality voice and video to end users around the world. Agora's suite of APIs gives developers access to its robust network so they can easily integrate voice, video, and interactive broadcasting into existing applications with ease.

The demand for live and interactive voice and video functionalities embedded within existing mobile and web applications has seen an uptick in recent years as brands look to better engage audiences and customers, create new channels for monetization, and increase user stickiness. "As we continue to invest in our proprietary network and developer community, we're committed to moving the RTC industry forward into the global era as we explore exciting new use cases in media & entertainment, social media, social discovery, collaborative gaming, and more," says Tony Zhao, founder and CEO of

"Our customers know better than to pay unnecessary premiums to private network providers for lower quality solutions. We continue to grow and evolve our global operations to provide developers, customers, and partners not only with the highest QoS value for their money, but also excellent service and customer experience."

Unmatched Scalability and Latency

Agora's SD-RTN(TM) supports up to 200,000 concurrent users per broadcast session with only one-second latency across 200+ regions and is capable of scaling from a single user to a million overnight. A lightweight client-side codec ensures that data is compressed as much as possible to enable faster connection across a broad spectrum of hardware covering over 5,500 devices, even those that are underpowered. This level of connectivity is extremely valuable in emerging countries where users don't have access to new or updated consumer technology.

To provide reliable and fast connectivity with the lowest possible latency, Agora's algorithm monitors traffic in real time and chooses the most efficient path available. The average end-to-end global latency for Agora is 300 milliseconds.

2 Billion SDK Installs & 200,000 Developers
