Video Conferencing Delivery Platforms from Edgewater Networks and InFocus Are Now Interoperable

Edgewater Networks, a video and voice enterprise session border controller (ESBC) manufacturer, and collaboration technology pioneer InFocus Corporation, announced today that their respective video conferencing-capable products and services are now interoperable. Together, the companies provide users with a simplified, seamless video experience that promotes collaboration and clear communications between individuals in disparate locations.

Edgewater Networks EdgeProtect 7000 series is a natural fit for InFocus’ video deployment, integrating with its ConX group video bridging platform to deliver secure and reliable video calling between any SIP or H.323 video calling device including InFocus’ Mondopad giant touch tablet, MVP100 Video Phone and other software clients. EdgeProtect is a single appliance that incorporates call control, SIP trunking, and security, becoming the network demarcation point. It provides a clear hand-off point between the service provider network and the corporate network, delivering video transmissions between the cloud and video devices. It is the only ESBC that supports SIP trunking and H.323/SIP for video for enterprise networks.

“Edgewater Networks is excited to announce the interoperability between our EdgeProtect video ESBC and InFocus portfolio of video delivery software and devices like the Mondopad and MVP100 video phone,” said Dave Norman, CEO of Edgewater Networks. “As the demand for video conferencing and related collaboration services increase, so does the need for a complete video platform that delivers high-quality, high-definition, and secure video solutions. With the interoperability between Edgewater Networks and InFocus, customers can now have what they’ve been seeking.”

To deliver video conferencing capabilities to the customer, the 55-inch to 80-inch InFocus Mondopad touch tablet is designed to allow conference room participants to connect through video, collaborate on documents and whiteboard ideas, all in real-time. It acts as a SIP endpoint on the customer’s video conference server or service. Similarly, the InFocus MVP100 Video Phone simplifies desk-to-desk visual communication worldwide and maintains the in-person experience with 10.1-inch HD display and 720p camera. In addition to enabling video calls, the MVP100 can display digital whiteboard sessions from the Mondopad and files other video calling devices may share.

“InFocus’ goal is to continually deliver products and services that help people collaborate in productive ways – from our Mondopads to our MVP 100 video phone to our software that turns any web browser into a full video end-point,” said Surendra Arora, Vice President at InFocus. “Through the interoperability with Edgewater Networks, InFocus customers now have an additional firewall traversal and SIP registration option when deploying InFocus products in the enterprise.”
