Logitech International (has recently announced the acquisition of the assets of Paradial AS, a Norway-based leading provider of firewall and NAT traversal solutions for video communication. As reported on TTKN News, Paradial's technology enables seamless video calling between people inside the walls of an enterprise and those inside other enterprises, in remote offices or telecommuting.
“Paradial's technology addresses one of the most significant barriers to the widespread adoption of Internet-based video communication: challenges encountered when calling across protected networks. Traversing any firewall while maintaining a high level of security, the Paradial technology enables seamless video calling between people inside the walls of an enterprise and those inside other enterprises, in remote offices or telecommuting. While Logitech is already offering Paradial technology to LifeSize customers through an OEM agreement, the acquisition allows the company to closely integrate firewall and NAT traversal across its video communication product portfolio, enabling reliable, high-quality end-to-end HD video calling over highly protected networks.”
