Teradici and CounterPath Partner to Develop VoIP Unified Communications for DaaS and VDI

Teradici®, developer of industry-leading PCoIP® technology for virtual workspaces, today announced a partnership with CounterPath Corp. (NASDAQ: CPAH) (TSX: CCV), a leading developer of award-winning desktop, tablet and mobile VoIP client solutions. Together, the companies will deliver the industry’s first scalable unified communications (UC) solution for PCoIP Zero Clients for desktop-as-a-service (DaaS) and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) deployments.

Integration of CounterPath’s market-leading Bria softphone technology into Tera2 PCoIP Zero Clients will culminate in an interoperable UC solution for enterprise customers across the broadest range of SIP-compliant environments, including Alcatel-Lucent, Avaya, Broadsoft, Cisco, Metaswitch Networks and Mitel, for voice, messaging, presence, contacts and social media. With virtual desktops delivered via PCoIP, all applications and data remain in the data center where they can be centrally managed, with a remote link to the local client device. Users can readily move between devices while preserving their desktop environment, greatly enhancing employee mobility, data security and disaster recovery.

“We’re delighted to be the first independent software vendor to jointly develop and deliver a scalable VoIP unified communications solution for PCoIP Zero Clients,” said Donovan Jones, President and CEO, CounterPath. “Our partnership with Teradici expands the reach of CounterPath and highlights the flexibility of our unified communications solution. With more than one and a half million PCoIP Zero Clients deployed in companies across diverse markets, we have a tremendous opportunity – with great potential for acceleration, as VDI and the emerging DaaS markets reach new levels of maturity.”

“In collaboration with CounterPath, we’re excited to bring greater flexibility and an enhanced user experience to PCoIP Zero Clients – the most secure, easy-to-manage endpoint devices for virtual workspaces,” added Dan Cordingley, President and CEO, Teradici. “Bria softphone solutions have been broadly adopted by more than 400 operators, OEMs and large and small enterprises in more than 50 countries worldwide. CounterPath has a proven track record in delivering a high-quality product with interoperability across a breadth of SIP-compliant network equipment. We’ve selected the right partner at the right time to jointly develop a scalable, robust, cost-effective UC solution.”

Development of a joint UC solution for PCoIP Zero Clients by Teradici and CounterPath is underway with an expected release in calendar Q4.

Built for the cloud, ultra-secure PCoIP Zero Clients simplify IT management and displace traditional PCs at a fraction of the cost, eliminating hard drives, CPUs, graphic processors, applications and OS software. Today, Teradici’s ecosystem includes 50 of world’s leading computer manufacturers, delivering PCoIP Zero Clients in a variety of form factors (desktop, laptop, all-in-one monitors) that meet the industry’s strictest enterprise standards for workplace security, performance and ease-of-management.

CounterPath is a global leader in softphone technology, with millions of endpoints downloaded. With unmatched interoperability with IP PBXs and SIP-based application servers, Bria is built toward industry standards with proven multimedia technology that provides a highly-secure, high-quality, UC experience to voice and video calls over fixed, mobile and Wi-Fi broadband networks. Bria’s ability to move a UC session, without interruption, between mobile and Wi-Fi networks gives businesses new options for "always on" connectivity while realizing cost savings through enhanced access to free Wi-Fi networks.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
