Centrally Managed - EdgeView

The real power and value of an EdgeMarc deployment comes from its integration with the EdgeView Service Control Center. EdgeView enables service providers to rapidly deploy and manage hundreds or even tens of thousands of EdgeMarc appliances. EdgeView delivers zero touch provisioning to assure consistent, low-touch installations. It also offers granular real-time access to any site as well as reporting tools to holistically manage an entire network. As more services move to the cloud, service providers need a more intelligent way to deliver and manage communications services. It’s no wonder that service providers already have over half a million EdgeMarcs deployed.

EdgeView Reporting and Notifications

EdgeView provides real-time data on call quality as well as tools for correcting issues with SIP interoperability.  EdgeView also provides network-wide reports, alarms, and trends, making it a powerful tool to monitor an entire network.

Because Quality & Security Matter

An EdgeMarc appliance bridges the gap between an enterprise’s network and a carrier’s network. In this pivotal position, the EdgeMarc and EdgeView can enhance both the quality and security of a conversation. The EdgeMarc 2900 can add encryption (SRTP/ TLS) to a call, even if the device in the premises doesn’t support it – including legacy PBXs and contact centers.

The EdgeMarc also has a powerful ability to seamlessly switch live calls between WAN links if a failure is detected. Live calls will be instantly re-routed on to the secondary WAN link – they stay connected. For businesses like travel, hospitality or tele-sales, this capability can mean preservation of thousands in revenue, not to mention increased customer satisfaction.
