Edgewater Networks develops products that ensure the security and reliable delivery of IP based voice and video for service providers and enterprises. The company has recently inked a distribution agreement with many international distributors to sell its EdgeProtect Series line of Enterprise Session Border Controllers (ESBCs) worldwide.


Westcon, FVC, Solutors (Denmark), Supra Net Projekt, Avikom (Scandinavia) and Videnda (Eire and Northern Ireland), are the new distributors signing the agreement with Edgewater.

The new distributors will offer the EdgeProtect video conferencing product family, an enterprise session border controller (ESBC) providing a complete SIP/H.460 far end NAT and firewall traversal solution, and simplified remote access for video communications.

This solution that is ideal for SMB and enterprise customers and can be deployed as a single appliance for reliable, ubiquitous, and secure video conferencing that promises to enhance the communication experience and productivity.

The EdgeProtect 7000 Series is also added to the distributors’ and integrators’ collections of cloud and video managed services. The EdgeProtect 7000 Series is best to solve issues regarding video including firewall traversal, device interoperability, provisioning of mobile clients, quality of end user experience and security.

“The expansion of our partner network into multiple geographies positions the EdgeProtect for global expansion, allowing more customers to benefit from its video and conferencing capabilities,” said Dave Norman, CEO of Edgewater Networks. “Using our solution, our partners will be in a better position to deliver superior seamless integration of video conferencing capabilities for multiple deployments, including mobile devices.”

Edgewater ESBC sessions are currently deployed by some of the largest service providers and enterprise organizations, including one of the two largest U.S. carriers and three of the top five U.S. cable operators.

The company is on its way to develop a new patent-pending platform that employs recent advances in SDN and NFV to open new markets for service providers by allowing them to quickly and profitably deliver a new class of business services.
