Edgewater Networks Launches Cloud2Edge Complete, A Subscription-based Delivery for Network Edge Orchestration that Reduces Service Provider CapEx

SAN JOSE, Calif.–January 19, 2017–Edgewater Networks, Inc., the industry leader in Network Edge Orchestration, today announced the launch of Cloud2Edge Complete, a new subscription-based service delivery model for its Network Edge Orchestration platform. In Cloud2Edge Complete, a single, monthly price includes full EdgeView Service Control Center functionality, pooled software licenses for concurrent calls, and all Technical Support and Maintenance.

Cloud2Edge Complete enables customers to “pay for only what you need,” as usage is pooled and aggregated at the account level rather than the device-level. Cloud2Edge Complete also lowers the barrier to entry for small site deployments as hardware costs are reduced, up to 80% in some instances. Lastly, Cloud2Edge Complete reduces the cap-ex burden for service providers, eliminating large up-front purchases with a pay-as-you-go op-ex pricing model.

“Consumers of unified communication services are constantly seeking delivery methods that reduce upfront investment costs in infrastructure and services while also providing a scalable model that accounts for continued growth,” said Diane Myers, senior research director for VoIP, UC, and IMS at IHS Markit. “Edgewater Networks is embracing service providers’ needs in adopting a SaaS-based pricing model that helps them to defray costs while optimizing the customer experience.”

Network Edge Orchestration is a hybrid cloud to edge platform that combines the EdgeView Service Control Center and customer-premised EdgeMarc Intelligent Edges, providing proactive management of service quality from the network core to IP endpoints. Network Edge Orchestration enables reporting and analytics, troubleshooting and remediation, security, and zero-touch provisioning and configuration for Unified Communications services.

“We are starting to see a substantial shift in the market toward solutions that allow service providers to play an active role in the orchestration of their customers’ network, while supporting a more op-ex centric cost model,” said Tim McElligott, senior consulting analyst of the Orchestration, Data Analytics and Monetization (ODAM) practice at Stratecast | Frost and Sullivan. “Edgewater Networks’ Cloud2Edge Complete delivers the convenience of access to a feature-rich network orchestration platform.”
