"The Dolby Conference Phone makes conversations more natural by enabling meeting participants to communicate the way they do when they're in the same room. Demand for this type of communication by companies of all sizes has been expanding rapidly for the last several years, and we expect that trend to continue," said Jeff Smith, Senior Director of Product, Communications Business Group, at Dolby Laboratories (News - Alert). "Service providers deploying the QuickConnect-certified Dolby Conference Phone with Edgewater Networks' EdgeMarc 2900 Intelligent Edges can experience seamless installations at customer sites wih opportunities to reduce OPEX (News - Alert) while simultaneously realizing optimized voice quality through the central and proactive management of all endpoints."

Edgewater Networks' (News - Alert) Network Edge Orchestration platform includes the cloud-based EdgeView Service Control Center and customer premises-based EdgeMarc Intelligent Edges. Network Edge Orchestration offers a host of functionality and benefits including Zero Touch Provisioning and configuration, security, and active service management. Endpoints, such as the Dolby Conference Phone are connected directly to the EdgeMarc Intelligent Edges, giving service providers the ability to remotely monitor, configure, and troubleshoot all endpoints through the EdgeView Service Control Center.

The Dolby Conference Phone delivers impressive flexibility for great sound from huddle rooms to conference rooms to boardrooms in a streamlined, easy-to-use design. And when combined with a Dolby Voice® enabled service, it gives you even better audio, with more nuance and with voice placement that presents each speaker's voice from a distinct location to make it easier to follow the conversation.
