New Firewall And NAT Traversal Solution Released For Android

Eyeball Networks unveils AnyFirewall Engine

VANCOUVER, B.C. (October 28, 2010) – Eyeball Networks, a leading developer of firewall and NAT traversal infrastructure and developer tools for VoIP, IMS, and Packet Cable 2.0 networks, today announced the release of its AnyFirewall™ Engine firewall and NAT traversal solution for Android. AnyFirewall™ Engine is the first carrier-grade firewall and NAT traversal solution designed for the Android operating system for use in mobile devices and smartphones.

Together with AnyFirewall™ Server, AnyFirewall™ Engine now enables developers and device makers to deliver instant, seamless, and guaranteed connections between Android applications and devices while benefiting from peer-to-peer media delivery, low latency, and carrier-grade scalability.

“The addition of Android support continues Eyeball’s entrance into the smartphone market and the company’s ability to deliver a guaranteed firewall and NAT traversal solution for mobile service providers, application developers, and device makers,” said Chris Piche, CEO for Eyeball. “AnyFirewall™ Engine and Server are based on years of innovation by Eyeball and leverage IETF, IMS, Microsoft, and PacketCable protocols. They provide guaranteed, carrier-grade firewall and NAT traversal across multiple embedded, PC, and mobile platforms including Android, iPhone/iPad, Linux, OS X, VxWorks, Windows, and Windows Mobile.”

Key features of AnyFirewall™ Engine and Server include: • 100% guaranteed firewall and NAT traversal • Universal standards support for wireless, fixed, and cable networks via STUN, TURN, ICE, UPnP, ICE-TCP, MS-ICE2, and MS-TURN • Cross-platform support for Android, iPhone/iPad, Linux, OS X, VxWorks, Windows, and Windows Mobile • Field proven with hundreds of licensees and tens of millions of endpoints

Many companies take firewall and NAT traversal capabilities for granted, but industry experts know how critical this functionality can be. Jon Arnold, founder of J Arnold & Associates (www.jarnoldassociates.com) – a well known IP communications research and analysis firm – knows the importance of NAT traversal in VoIP, video and IM applications. “You can design the best communications app in the industry, with the nicest GUI, the best features, and the clearest call quality. But if it doesn’t work properly or is too hard to configure behind a corporate firewall or even public WiFi hotspot, you’ll never get the widespread adoption that you need to have a successful mobile application. That’s why the functionality that Eyeball Networks is delivering is so critical.” About Eyeball Networks Eyeball Networks is a pioneer and leading developer of VoIP and NAT traversal infrastructure and developer tools enabling service providers, application developers, and device makers to deliver carrier-grade IP communications solutions in a cost-effective and timely manner. Today, over 200 licensees and 20 million users benefit from Eyeball’s innovations, including its patented AnyBandwidth™, AnyFirewall™, and AntiSPIT™ technologies guaranteeing the best possible VoIP and video telephony experience – over any Internet connection, across any NAT or firewall, and on any device.
