SAN JOSE, Calif.––Edgewater Networks, Inc., the market leader in Network Edge Orchestration, announces the upcoming availability of its SD-WAN offering targeted for Small to Medium Enterprises, a key market for service providers offering Unified Communications as a Service. Edgewater Networks’ SD-WAN solution is optimized for the BroadSoft BroadWorks® and BroadCloud® platforms and brings the benefits of this technology to the BroadSoft customer base.
“As a new component of our Network Edge Orchestration platform, Edgewater Networks SD-WAN service allows BroadSoft customers to offer comprehensive end user service level agreements by ensuring that real-time communications are automatically routed to the best available Internet connection,” said Chris Kolstad, Edgewater Networks’ Vice President of Product Management. “Edgewater Networks’ SD-WAN offers a new revenue stream to service providers with a solution that is designed for SMEs who have limited IT resources to configure, manage and monitor an SD-WAN platform.”
Edgewater Networks SD-WAN service will be available to anyone using Edgewater Networks’ Network Edge Orchestration platform and can also be purchased as part of their Cloud2Edge Complete service model. The EdgeMarc Intelligent Edges, used for security and service assurance for UCaaS, are the customer premises component of the SD-WAN solution. No additional hardware is needed. EdgeMarc Intelligent Edge’s unique visibility into LAN-side attachments and traffic mean that many of the complicated settings to manage the WAN-side SD-WAN traffic are automatically applied. The SD-WAN service is controlled and managed by the EdgeView Service Control Center.
“By leveraging BroadSoft Business cloud unified communications, team collaboration and contact center solutions, Edgewater Networks has demonstrated its commitment to reinventing how people work,” said Taher Behbehani, Chief Digital and Marketing Officer at BroadSoft. “We’re thrilled to welcome the Edgewater Networks’ SD-WAN solution into our growing user environment and eager to see the reception of this announcement at Connections.”
Edgewater Networks SD-WAN service will offer Stateful SIP Transfer of VoIP calls across two WAN links, URL-, port-, and IP address-prioritized routing for all real and non-real time traffic across the links along with identification and management of LAN-based devices. As with all services on the Network Edge Orchestration platform, SD-WAN is simply provisioned through the EdgeView Service Control Center without any need for configuration by the end user.
