Agora, Inc. (“Agora” or “We”) is a pioneer and global leader in Real-Time Engagement Platform-as-a-Service, or RTE-PaaS. Our platform provides software developers simple-to-use, highly customizable and widely compatible application programming interfaces, or APIs, to embed real-time video and voice functionalities into their applications without the need to develop the technology or build the underlying infrastructure themselves.
The real-time data transmission is handled by our Software-Defined Real-Time Network, or SD-RTN, which is a virtual network overlay on top of the public Internet running on more than 200 co-located data centers worldwide. Using sophisticated algorithms, the SD-RTN continuously monitors and optimizes data transmission paths through the network to minimize latency and packet loss, enabling high quality real-time engagement across millions of concurrent users.
We maintain dual headquarters in Shanghai, China and Santa Clara, California.
