Calgary, Alberta (PRWEB) February 17, 2014
Pexip®, a global disrupter in scalable videoconferencing technology, and Iluminari Tech, a leading provider of next-generation Microsoft® Lync® solutions, announce their partnership to jointly provide solutions to both customers and carrier partners that expand the video, voice and mobile capabilities of Microsoft Lync.
Pexip extends the functionality of Microsoft Lync by providing unique capabilities to connect geographically dispersed organizations in new ways. Pexip Infinity is a scalable software platform providing a distributed architecture that reduces WAN bandwidth consumption, saves organizations money and increases their capacity for collaboration. Conference participants connect locally via their Lync Services, while distributed Pexip servers route traffic for Lync, telepresence rooms, H.323/SIP video clients and audio participants. Pexip preserves the user experience while improving reliability and reducing costs by consolidated connections locally to minimize WAN traffic.
Pexip Infinity is a software-based, virtualized conferencing platform providing personal meeting rooms to any number of users on video, voice and mobile. Pexip offers simple deployment, simple usage, simple scaling – bringing simplicity to the world of videoconferencing. Pexip Infinity natively expands functionality of Microsoft Lync and merges it with corporate videoconferencing and VOIP infrastructure. It also extends true interoperability beyond that of the “traditional” video communication standards. A single conference may have SIP, H.323, Microsoft® Lync®, WebRTC endpoints and more connected, providing HD video, wideband audio and data sharing to and from all the different participants. All protocols are supported natively in the Pexip Infinity product – no gateways are required for interoperability. Being software-only means that new features and technologies will be available through ongoing software upgrades.
“Delivering solutions that enhance our customers’ collaboration abilities, while at the same time solving the challenges of complexity truly deliver value,” said Angela Hlavka, Iluminari Tech’s President and CEO. “Pexip Infinity platform extends Lync capabilities while at the same time reducing an organizations costs. We are thrilled to add Pexip to our world-class ecosystem of Lync unified communications partners.”
"With Microsoft Lync becoming widely adopted by enterprises across the world, finding a way to connect Lync with other business videoconferencing systems has become a critical issue," said Simen Teigre, CEO of Pexip. "We are excited to work with such a specialist partner like Iluminari Tech to deliver next-generation Microsoft Lync solutions with Pexip infinity."
This announcement builds on Iluminari Tech’s strong legacy with Lync. It extends the customer and carrier choices for integrating and delivering extended video, voice and mobile solutions for on-premises, in the cloud and hybrid deployments. Pexip Infinity along with Lync add value to any distributed organization. The Pexip Infinity Pilot Program is now available from Iluminari Tech providing additional value by allowing organizations to understand, quickly implement, and experience the technology hands.
Pexip overthrows conventional telepresence thinking by providing an affordable, virtualized, interoperable approach to videoconferencing on any device. For Pexip, simplicity for the end user and IT is a guiding principle in the design of Pexip Infinity, a scalable software platform that provides personal meeting rooms for any number of users on video, voice and mobile. Pexip's virtualized solution can be deployed quickly and easily, with flexibility to scale as required.
