 PUBNUB: Making Engaging Realtime Experiences a Reality in India


Cost-effective benefits of realtime communication technology, increasing webification of real-time communications have boosted the growth of the global real-time communication market.

The outbreak of COVID-19 has greatly affected the global real-time communication industry.

  • The major market players are focused on mobilizing to adapt to increasing demand for digital channels for entertainment, healthcare, information, and education.
  • The rapid move to 'work from home' and demand for applications to stay in touch with family members and friends have increased the demand for web real-time communication solutions.
  • By industry vertical, the healthcare segment is anticipated to manifest the highest CAGR of 43.3% by 2027, due to increasing awareness about the benefits of telemedicine & remote patient monitoring.

All around the world, governments are racing to protect their citizens’ privacy in response to the ubiquity of digital interactions and the influence of data collection. As software providers aim to leverage their user data to improve their products and deliver more relevant and timely experiences to customers, consumers want to make sure that they have a choice in how their data is used, and their governments support that desire. India is looking to better protect its citizens with regulations that require foreign companies to store data generated in India locally, within the country.

PubNub has a rich history of supporting customer needs around security, privacy, and regulations, and supporting our customers in India is right up that alley. Building upon the roll-out of our services via the Mumbai Point-of-Presence (POP), PubNub now supports customers’ need and ability to store data locally in India. This lets customers meet the regulatory requirements that are now table stakes for their operations in the country.

Especially for those who want to innovate and use the best technologies available, it’s critical that the technologies and vendors they work with are able to support their India-specific needs. Otherwise, they will be left to find less efficient, less effective ways to solve their core problem, spending effort that should go to providing high-quality solutions and service

The Impact on Customers
The healthcare, education and financial services sectors of India are most heavily impacted by this regulation, as they handle the most personal and confidential information about those that they serve. In order to do business and use data to innovate within the country, they are on the front lines of navigating the new regulations. With PubNub, these customers are completely covered when it comes to storing data locally. There’s no need to wonder whether data will be protected or stored somewhere else.

How are customers using PubNub in healthcare and financial services in compliance with regulation?

  1. Common client side strategy across different networks
  2. Ease, accessibility and standardized development procedures with an open cross-platform ecosystem
  3. Consolidated and unified infrastructure

From the communication service provider’s perspective, this is a tremendous opportunity to better engage with the customer. From the third-party application and content provider perspective, realtime communication provides a means of leveraging APIs to better integrate with communication apps. Businesses can enhance their communications infrastructure by providing a single interface from which users can initiate voice, video, and messaging sessions.
