What is the purpose of a WebRTC relay streaming service? Why not use WebRTC P2P?

A relay streaming service scales solution capabilities beyond user home connection capabilities and reliability of mobile networks.
Additionally the relay streaming server enables specific platform functionality like adaptive server transcoding for different broadcaster / player technologies, extracting stream snapshots and listing these on site, ability to archive broadcasts on server. Running production grade platforms requires professional streaming servers.

As standard WebRTC implementations utilize peering networks, there still has to be a nearby node to help distribute the stream to other local hosts. Peering across a global network can be incredibly difficult and unreliable, especially across different types of networks and connections (as for mobile devices).
Broadcasters would need server grade connections to live stream to multiple users and using a regular home ADSL connection (that has has higher download and bigger upload) or mobile network causes real issues.
While testing with 2 or few users works fine in P2P demos and small load trials or experiments, WebRTC limits often show in production mode: becomes unusable when many users are watching same HD stream and broadcaster connection is regular or mobile networks are used.
All startups hope their streaming applications will become a huge success, with thousands of viewers watching. A performer streaming a full hd video at 6-8 Mbps directly to 100 viewers in various world locations would require up to 600-800Mbps upload connection which is unlikely to achieve for a retail home connection. A streaming server in a well connected datacenter will do the job.
