7 Cool Network Devices That Add Value Too


Tely Pro Appliance

Tely Labs, one of CRN's 10 Coolest Network Startups of 2013, in July began shipping the TelyHD Pro Appliance, a PC-less videoconferencing and collaboration solution for offices large and small. The $699 appliance includes a four-mic speakerphone with noise cancellation, an embedded browser with soft keyboard, a Skype-certified audio/video system with support for SIP, H.264, H.263, AES-128 and -256, and a maximum resolution of 1,280-x-720 at 24 frames-per-second. The self-contained Ethernet device works with DHCP by default, outputs HDMI to any standard flat-panel TV and interoperates with Blue Jeans, Cisco, LifeSize, Polycom and other major teleconferencing brands. A remote is included, as are control apps for Android and for iOS. Content also can be fed from compatible Windows PCs to the connected display panel. One year of six-party conferencing and desktop sharing with other Tely endpoints is included.
