Computer Telephony Distributing to Deliver SURF's Orion-MCU

By SIP Trunking Report Contributor

Surf Communications Solutions (SURF) has said that Computer Telephony Distributing (CTD) will distribute its Orion-MCU enterprise video conferencing solution all over North America.

The company is working with CTD and expects to expand the exposure of its proven video and voice conferencing solution in the dynamic North American market, according to Ilan Bluvstein, president and vice president of sales for North America at SURF.

An open, standard-based, high-definition voice and video conferencing bridge, the Orion-MCU provides real-time, low latency, ubiquitous conferencing capabilities between different devices with different multimedia voice and video resolutions.

The company has developed Orion-MCU to target the large and growing market of enterprise video solutions. According to industry reports, due to the cost of video conferencing solutions, small and medium-sized businesses (SMB) have usually avoided using them.

With this voice and video conferencing bridge, the company looks to extend the reach of video conferencing to all the organizations.

In addition to providing access from standard session initiation protocol (SIP) based room systems, Orion-MCU also provides access from soft clients as well as clients available on different mobile devices and tablets.

This offers a BYOD strategy for any business.

CTD is a value-added distributor of telecommunication solutions. The company’s team supplies full-service sales, technical support, product warehousing and professional services throughout the United States and Canada.

“We find great benefit in SURF's solution for our customers, and we are pleased to take part in cooperative effort,” said John Groce, vice president of sales at CTD, adding that they find that Orion-MCU offers easy integration and maintenance, with no additional infrastructure requirements, and at no additional expense.

SURF is a provider of high-capacity processing solutions for real-time multimedia communication systems and applications. It delivers a fully converged multimedia processing subsystem available in various form factors, DSP chips or end-to-end solutions, affording unmatched density and optimal performance.

Last November, Yealink, a source of IP phones and IP communications solutions, teamed up with SURF to promote video communications in enterprises and SMBs.
