As abmv says, this is a "trusted author" - it even says as much in the article:

"Creating a Production-Ready WebRTC App for Video Calls: 5 Considerations for Developers"
Where's the spam? If I were a developer working on a video call system (and we've worked on something similar) then an article that lays out questions you need to know the answers to before you start is hugely useful.
I'm pretty harsh on our sponsors about what's OK and what's not but that article I particularly liked. It provides information without asking anything from you. It offers their take on the problem without pushing.
I have seen (and reported to you) several articles getting that message or the "editorial note" without being real showcases
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
So where do you draw the line?
This is a sponsor, which CP obviously needs to keep it free.
But every article uses one product or another.
Is it not advertisement when an article uses C#?
Only because C# is more widely used or because it's free?
C# comes with Visual Studio, which has a paid subscription.
And don't forget the Windows you need to run it.
Ultimately, they're all advertisements, except that we only tolerate those whose products we already use.
Personally, I don't care as long as the article is good.
I'll read it if I think I need the product (or maybe it solves a problem I have, but I just don't know it yet).
This article is pretty informative even when I don't need their product, so I see no problem (even if it wasn't a sponsor).
I don't make the rules though
