Eyeball Networks (News - Alert), a leading developer of NAT-traversal solutions, recently supplied the reference STUN-TURN server for 22nd SIP interoperability test event arranged by SIP forum.
The Eyeball AnyFirewall Engine also participated in the event as one of the most comprehensive implementation of latest IETF drafts on STUN, TURN and ICE for seamless traversal VoIP calls through NATs, firewalls and web-proxies, according to Shahadat Khan (News - Alert), CTO Eyeball Networks.
“We were excited to have Eyeball AnyFirewall Server to be the only STUN-TURN server platform invited to this industry-leading interoperability event to support testing user-agents and client software implementing STUN, TURN and ICE.” said Shahadat Khan, CTO Eyeball Networks.
The SIPit, or Session Initiation Protocol (News - Alert) Interoperability Test, is a weeklong event hosted bi-annually where people bring their SIP implementations to ensure they work together. This year’s event was hosted by the University of New Hampshire Interoperability Laboratory April 14 through 18, in Durham, New Hampshire, USA. CableLabs (News - Alert) coordinated the NAT traversal interoperability tests using STUN, TURN and ICE at this event, with Eyeball Networks providing the only STUN-TURN server (AnyFirewall Server) for the testing of end-points and user-agents.
“We had recently upgraded our AnyFirewall Server and Engine to use the latest STUN, TURN and ICE drafts, and were looking forward to see it perform with other solutions in the industry,” said Khan.
Eyeball AnyFirewall Server provides a scalable firewall and NAT traversal solution for SIP end-points based on the latest IETF standards STUN, TURN and ICE (i.e. ICE 19).
Eyeball AnyFirewall Engine is the industry's leading NAT traversal Software Development Kit (SDK) for guaranteed VoIP and video call completion across NATs, firewalls, and web-proxies.
