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.”
