The 10 Coolest Networking Startups Of 2013


Tely Labs (And Blue Jeans Network)

CEO: Sreekanth Ravi

Since its founding in 2010, Tely Labs has gained attention in the consumer and SMB market for its videoconferencing and collaboration systems.

But, this year, the Redwood City, Calif.-based startup turned its attention to the enterprise with the launch of telyHD Pro, a business-focused collaboration platform that will sell exclusively through the channel. What makes telyHD Pro unique, according to Tely Labs, is that it has built-in SIP support, so it can integrate with other standards-based systems including Polycom or Cisco.

Also this year, Tely Labs introduced a partnership with fellow videoconferencing and collaboration startup Blue Jeans Network, through which buyers of telyHD Pro can receive 60 days of Blue Jeans' cloud-based videoconferencing service free of charge.
