Edgewater Networks Awarded a 2014 Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award

Edgewater Networks announced today that TMC has named the EdgeProtect 7300 Series Enterprise Session Border Controller (ESBC) a 2014 Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award.

The EdgeProtect 7300 resolves key challenges for video faced by enterprises and SMBs including firewall traversal, device interoperability, provisioning of mobile clients, quality of end user experience and security. It is a single appliance that is easily deployed and supports standards-based H.323 and H.460 NAT/firewall traversal with flexible security policy management. Media features include shortest path media routing to minimize the negative effects of jitter, latency and packet loss on video communications as well as media relay when H.460 firewall traversal is required. It offers broad interoperability with leading vendors including Cisco, Lifesize, Polycom, Radvision, Vidyo and more.

“The evolution of traditional network boundaries has made the job of connecting distributed offices, SOHO users, business partners and mobile employees increasingly complex,” said Dave G. Norman, Chief Executive Officer of Edgewater Networks, Inc. “EdgeProtect provides secure, reliable connectivity for video communications that enables Enterprise and SMB customers to improve productivity and reduce costs.”

“Congratulations to Edgewater Networks for receiving a 2014 Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “The EdgeProtect 7300 Series has demonstrated true innovation and is among the best solutions that facilitate voice, data and video communications brought to market in the past twelve months. I look forward to continued excellence from Edgewater Networks in 2014 and beyond.”
