Abstract: Many developers are interested in using Web Real-Time Communication (WebRTC) for video conferencing. But, selecting the appropriate topology in the architectural design of the WebRTC application is considered as one of the most potential issues. This paper aims to create a novel WebRTC signalling mechanism called WebNSM for one-to-many (bi-directional) video conferencing. WebNSM was created for unlimited users over the star topology based on (API) mechanism and Multi-Connection methods. This implementation was applied via Wired of LAN and WAN networks and evaluated a signalling performance (WebNSM), bandwidth consumption, CPU performance, memory usage, Quality of Experience (QoE), maximum links and RTP calculation. In addition, it supplies video conferencing on different browsers without any user registration or additional software. The results demonstrate a signalling mechanism among various users, devices and networks to open one or multi rooms at the same time using the same server, specify room initiator to keep the session active even if another peer leaves, involving new user with current participants, etc. Moreover, this paper highlights the limitations of CPU performance, bandwidth consumption and using star topology for WebRTC video conferencing.
