September 27, 2016, San Jose, CA – Edgewater Networks, the leader in Network Edge Orchestration, today announced that it has partnered with BlueJeans Network, the global leader in cloud-based video communication services, to deliver secure and seamless video conferencing services to customers using SIP and H.323. Edgewater Networks’ EdgeProtect, Intelligent Edges for video, provide firewall traversal functionality enabling BlueJeans Network to deliver video-centric unified communications despite corporate firewall security restrictions. Edgewater Networks has completed certification testing of its EdgeProtect solution with the BlueJeans Network service in the Edgewater Networks QuickConnect Interoperability Lab.
Edgewater Networks’ Network Edge Orchestration platform includes a cloud-based EdgeView Service Control Center and customer premises-based EdgeProtect Intelligent Edges, which together offer a host of functionality and benefits including zero-touch provisioning and configuration, security, toll-fraud defense, and active service management for video delivery. EdgeProtect intelligent edges provide call control for both SIP and H.323, multi-vendor support, and are able to protect the video environment by separating hardware endpoints to a video VLAN in the DMZ.
BlueJeans Network offers a global, highly-interoperable, cloud-based video communications service that allows endpoints to connect to each other in a ‘meet-in-the-cloud’ scenario. Users can initiate and join video calls using several types of video-capable devices such as standards-based H.323 and SIP hardware codecs, Slack and Skype for Business. In addition, BlueJeans Network offers its own application for PC, Mac, and mobile, which can easily interoperate virtually with full functionality, including content and encryption.
“It has become increasingly important in the market to treat video-enabled content with the same focus on security that we treat voice and data while delivering an error-free experience,” said Steve Pattison, Senior Vice President of Strategy and Corporate Development at Edgewater Networks. “Edgewater Networks’ intelligent edges for video are a strong complement to the services provided by BlueJeans Network and through this partnership, customers can expect a seamless and secure multimedia experience.”
