San Diego, California – November 14, 2006 –
WiredRed®, a technology leader in real-time
communications software, today announced that e/pop® Web
and Video Conferencing now offers expanded support for
Microsoft ISA Server and Squid Proxy, which limits web
browsing to http 1.1. Many web and IP video conferencing
services and software have trouble traversing older
proxies and those with no proxy client, resulting in
failed conference connections. By supporting more
proxies and proxy configurations, e/pop is able to
deliver more reliable conference connections so that
virtually anyone who can browse the web can host or
attend online meetings.
According to WiredRed’s Founder and CTO, Allen Drennan,
e/pop’s new ‘Get Connected’ feature expands the web
conferencing market to those who have been hindered by
proxies in the past. It also expands the market for IP
video conferencing because e/pop runs over existing
networks without the need for dedicated lines,
multiplexers (MUXs), session border controllers and
other expensive equipment.
“The use of web and video conferencing should be as
seamless as browsing a web site,” said Drennan. “The
point is to bring users together, communicate and
conduct business online as if you were there in person.
We think conference hosts will be particularly happy at
being able to avoid calls from frustrated users unable
to join a meeting.”
e/pop was designed for business and government networks,
it does not use peer-to-peer nor broadcast protocols.
e/pop uses TCP/IP conference connections, and unlike
streaming media, it provides live, interaction between
multiple participants. The software is easily installed
on the customer’s private network for strictly internal
meetings, or in the DMZ for meetings between employees
and external participants. e/pop is highly optimized for
successful firewall and proxy traversal, a growing
requirement as ever increasing security drives more and
more of these safeguards on corporate and government
e/pop fully leverages a customer’s investment in their
existing network and security infrastructure, and
operates within the network access, protocols and
network security policies set by the IT department. For
example, e/pop can use SSL, TLS, and HTTPS for secure
conference connections, and at the customer’s option,
use their own certificate and even their own public key
infrastructure (PKI) if needed for highly sensitive
applications. In addition, e/pop’s ability to run over
existing networks means customers are not required to
re-engineer their networks or buy session border
controllers, MUXs and MCUs as required by many other
VoIP and video products.
e/pop Web and Video Conferencing with the new ‘Get
Connected’ feature is available now. It is priced
starting at $3,000 per year for on-premise software and
$350 per month for hosted service. For more information
