The Silicon Review
Video conferencing is one of the most widely used tools for conducting meetings between professionals located at different locations. It is used not only by large corporations but also by individuals for casual conversations. StarLeaf is a company that provides video conferencing systems that can be used over television monitors, desktops as well as mobile phones.
Founded in the United Kingdom, the StarLeaf Cloud is built from the ground up with only StarLeaf owned and operated technology, it doesn’t rely on any third-party systems, making it incredibly reliable and secure. It is also fully redundant and duplicated at each of our Points of Presence (PoPs). Therefore, in the exceptional case of failure at any one of StarLeaf data centers, the connection is automatically redirected to an alternative PoP.

StarLeaf Cloud Platform
Security is of paramount importance to StarLeaf, and we take it very seriously, which is why we own and manage our own cloud-based network. StarLeaf Cloud uses secure and certificate-based authentication to ensure privacy for all your communications, storing all data in your local jurisdiction.
Our firewall traversal solution has been designed to use a single TCP port and at most one UDP port. This means you don’t need to open up a range of ports through your firewall which can weaken your network’s defenses. StarLeaf also runs regular security audits and even offers a bug bounty program to ensure that we prevent any vulnerability.
StarLeaf has many Points of Presence, strategically located all around the world to ensure unparalleled connectivity and efficient call routing with low latency. We use advanced techniques to deliver the highest possible quality of service whatever the network, such as the use of resilient codecs, forward error correction, direct media paths, and dynamic bandwidth management. These techniques deliver exceptional quality, not only over enterprise-class, MPLS wide area networks but also over less reliable networks such as the Internet.
At the heart of the StarLeaf Cloud is a management portal that gives you complete control over your StarLeaf video conferencing deployment. From this dashboard, you have the ability to provision and manage room systems and users, including all additions, moves, and changes. Ongoing management is also made easy, with the ability to remotely update settings for your full deployment of meeting rooms, anywhere in the world.
