CounterPath Bria Licences – What’s the Difference?

With a growing demand for Unified Communications, CounterPath softphone licences are an increasingly popular choice for flexible, mobile working. However with a variety of licenses available, differentiating between them can sometimes be an overwhelming tedious task.

CounterPath currently have two licence options; Bria 4 and Bria Stretto. Put simply, CounterPath’s Bria Stretto client is a provisionable version of the standard Bria 4 client. In an attempt to simplify the differences between these licences, we have created a new marketing document, please see below:

CounterPath Marketing Doc-32

If you have any questions about the information included or would like to speak to a member of the ProVu team about CounterPath Bria Stretto, you can call us on: 01484 840048 or email: contact@provu.co.uk

Algo Multicast Group

I think nearly anyone that has seen the Algo audio alerting devices has wondered what a group of them would sound like when they are positioned together.

Recently here at ProVu we got to group 38 Algo devices together and set them up to listen on multicast.

We were impressed with the kit and the result, the audio setting was left untouched so they are set to the default (I think it is 4 and goes up to 10) so they can become louder if required.

What do you think?
