Edgewater Networks Receives 2015 INTERNET TELEPHONY Product of the Year Award

SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 21, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Edgewater Networks, a leader in enterprise session border controllers, announced today that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has named the EdgeMarc 4750 as a recipient of a 2015 INTERNET TELEPHONY Product of the Year Award.

The EdgeMarc 4750 is a high availability (HA) enterprise session border controller designed specifically for small to medium businesses with up to 100 simultaneous calls while supporting up to 100 Mbps of data. It prioritizes voice over data traffic to ensure the quality voice calls while allowing routed data traffic to burst up to full line rate when possible. The EdgeMarc 4750 uses stateful packet inspection for data and tracks VoIP signaling states to dynamically open and close ports, (D)DOS protection, VPN, and registration/SIP message rate pacing. Services include WAN link redundancy to provide link backup, and PSTN interconnect (via external gateway) for a survivable option.

"Small to medium businesses have traditionally been unable to enjoy the same real-time, high-bandwidth voice and data quality as large enterprises due the high cost of enterprise session border controllers," said Dave G. Norman, Chief Executive Officer of Edgewater Networks, Inc. "With the EdgeMarc 4750, smaller organizations can now deploy SIP trunking and Hosted IP Telephony services with voice quality monitoring, traffic management, and a built-in security."

"It gives me great pleasure to recognize Edgewater Networks with a 2015 Product of the Year Award for its commitment to excellence and innovation," said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. "In the opinion of our distinguished judges, the EdgeMarc 4750 has proven to be among the best communications and technology solutions available on the market. I look forward to continued innovation from Edgewater Networks."

The winners of the 2015 INTERNET TELEPHONY Product of the Year are featured in the 2015 January/February issue of INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine and online at www.itmag.com.
