Yorktel Cloud and Video Managed Services offer new choices to enterprises that are swiftly deployed, customizable and can scale as needed.

“The EdgeProtect 7000 Series is the perfect complement to our current video conferencing platform, as it helps us provide customers with a very useable and manageable Unified Communications solution for video,” said Keith Gyford, managing director of Yorktel EMEA. “Working together, we are able to eliminate the inherent complexities associated with network management and security which are frequent pain points for customers.”

The EdgeProtect 7300 works with existing H.323 gatekeepers and also includes an embedded gatekeeper option for H.323 signaling and SIP server. Media features include shortest path media routing to minimize the negative effects of jitter, latency and packet loss on video communications as well as media relay when H.460 firewall traversal is required, resulting in smoother video transmission.
