AnyFirewall™ Engine enables real-time communications for iPhone and iPad using STUN, TURN, and ICE
VANCOUVER, B.C. (November 30, 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 iOS, Apple’s mobile operating system used in iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch devices. AnyFirewall™ Engine is the first carrier-grade firewall and NAT traversal solution designed for the iOS operating system for use in real-time communications and gaming applications.
Together with AnyFirewall™ Server, AnyFirewall™ Engine now enables developers and device makers to deliver instant, seamless, and guaranteed connections between iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch applications while benefiting from peer-to-peer media delivery, low latency, and carrier-grade scalability.
“We have seen a dramatic increase in demand from our customers to deliver Eyeball’s industry-leading NAT traversal solutions to mobile devices. The addition of AnyFirewall™ for Apple iOS builds on our support for other mobile devices including Windows Mobile and Android smartphones and tablet devices, as we continue to further enable mobile service providers, application developers, and device makers,” said Chris Piche, CEO for Eyeball. “We expect to continue to innovate in the mobile market as we add AnyFirewall™ support for additional devices and operating systems including Blackberry, Symbian, and Windows Phone 7.”
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
Apple’s popular FaceTime application is a great example of how standards like STUN, TURN, and ICE can be used to enable real-time communications through NAT and firewall devices. Eyeball’s AnyFirewall™ solutions enable other iPhone and iPad app developers to overcome the barriers associated with running applications from behind a corporate firewall, NAT device, or WiFI hotspot, and focus on delivering a high quality user experience.
