FVC appointed VAD for Middle East by Edgewater Networks

Dubai-based FVC, a leading Value Added Distributor (VAD) in the Middle East & North Africa (MENA) has signed a distribution agreement with Edgewater Networks for its EdgeProtect series of Enterprise Session Border Controllers (ESBCs). The EdgeProtect series will be a key addition to FVC’s Unified Communications portfolio that include video conferencing and video streaming. The new product range is ideally suited to SMBs that are extending the benefits of video collaboration beyond the conference room to mobile employees, business partners and customers.


“We are continuously evaluating new and complementary technologies to add to our portfolio and the EdgeProtect 7000 Series enhances our current video conferencing platform, providing our customers with a more usable, manageable, and operational Unified Communications solution for video,” said K.S. Parag, Managing Director at FVC. “In a region where small and medium businesses (SMB) are increasingly adopting video communications, we see exciting new possibilities with this partnership with Edgewater Networks across the MENA region.”

The EdgeProtect Series resolves key challenges for video faced by small and medium businesses including firewall traversal, device interoperability, provisioning of mobile clients, quality of end-user experience and security.

“Edgewater is excited to have FVC on board as an authorized VAD of our EdgeProtect line of ESBCs,” said Dave Norman, CEO of Edgewater Networks. “Using our solution, FVC’s partners will be better aligned to provide superior seamless integration of video conferencing for multiple deployments, including mobile devices.”
