Testing Agora vs. Twilio for 1:1 Mobile Video Calls

What's this blog post about?

The blog compares the performance of Agora and Twilio video SDKs for one-on-one mobile video calls under various network conditions, including constrained bandwidth, packet loss, and jitter. Under normal network conditions, both platforms performed similarly with Agora at 24 FPS and Twilio at 23 FPS. However, Agora consistently maintained a better frame rate than Twilio under numerous packet loss and jitter conditions. In terms of CPU utilization, both platforms consumed similar amounts of resources while Agora used more RAM than Twilio in all scenarios. Overall, Agora's ability to maintain consistent performance and frame rate under network limitations outperforms Twilio.
