San Francisco was buzzing with big names from the telecom, mobile and Internet communications industry last week at the eComm conference.
Our own Todd Carothers (SVP Marketing and Products), Jim O’Brien (Director of Customer Engineering, NCG) and Mike Hill (Director of Engineering, Mobility) were on hand to demo what CounterPath has been up to lately and share a few sneak peeks of things to come.
At the conference, we hosted a meeting room just down the hall from the exhibits and gave visitors an opportunity to see our latest and upcoming versions of Bria iPad Edition, Bria iPhone Edition and Bria Android Edition mobile softphone applications in action.
We kicked off Monday and Tuesday mornings by hosting a special edition of the VoIP User Conference (VUC) podcast. The discussions were quite lively. We mostly stayed on the topics of what we were expecting to hear from talks in the coming day and what we’d heard the day before.
On day one, Todd Carothers chatted and showed how CounterPath’s Bria for iPad can replace the deskphone.
On day two of the conference, Jim O’Brien got in on the VoIP Users Conference discussion about single identity, over the top services, and how wireline SMS works in North America.
Also on day two, we got a kick out of seeing Martin Geddes using CounterPath’s Bria for iPhone app to demonstrate his new voicemail application.
While in San Francisco, we gave visitors a sneak peek of what we’ve got up our sleeves. For example, coming soon to an iPad and Android tablet near you...
We also did some private demonstrations of a new network server element and service that we’re working hard on developing. We’re not quite ready to talk about these here, but look for an announcement on one of these two new items quite soon. (For now think SME OTT Service = PBX (e.g. Asterisk) + X-Lite...)
A special thanks to Andy Abramson who hosted the VUC calls as well as the many others who came by for a chat about CounterPath’s products and services. It was great to see you there and we’re already looking forward to next year.
As always, eComm was a fantastic gathering of thought leaders in our industry and it was great to be a part of it. Thanks to Lee Dryburgh for putting on such a quality event.
