Chapter 3. Server Roles > A/V Edge Server

A/V Edge Server

The A/V Edge Server enables audio and video traffic to traverse the corporate perimeter network. The A/V Edge Server serves as a meeting point for bridging users connecting from the Internet to an A/V Conferencing Server associated with the user’s home server. Users connect to the A/V Edge Server, and the A/V Conferencing Server connects to the A/V Edge Server. The A/V Edge Server relays the Real-Time Protocol (RTP) traffic between the users and A/V Conferencing Server. Similar to the other Edge Server roles, the A/V Edge Server must be configured with two NICs: one network card connected directly to the Internet and given a public routable IP address, and the other network card connected to the internal network. The A/V Edge Server uses the Information and Content Exchange (ICE) protocol to enable clients to traverse firewalls that might lie between the end user’s client and the A/V Edge Server. A/V Edge Server configuration is discussed in further detail in Chapter 4.
