Peerio Update - Real Products Real Soon
I had the opportunity to follow up on my earlier interview with Popular Telephony's CEO, Dmitry Goroshevsky here at Supercomm. Popular Telephony annouced a number of partners at the show, and I asked Dmitry about these partners and their plans to use Peerio.
Tell me a bit about the licensees you announced here at the show
Dmitry -- The first is Vontel, which manufactures a full line of SIP phones for the enterprise. They currently sell these phones with Nortel equipment. Every Vontel phone will now have Peerio installed, allowing customers to deploy without Nortel. Vontel primarily distributes their products in Europe today but is opening a distribution facility in Dallas to support the US market.
So Vontel can eliminate Nortel with Peerio?
Dmitry -- Well, their customers can -- if they want to use Vontel phones with Nortel they still can, but they don't need Nortel anymore. So it gives them independence but also opens up new markets that wouldn't have paid for expensive Nortel Gear. Similarly our second licensee announcement, Adtech, can eliminate Cisco.
Adtech is also in Europe?
Dmitry -- Yes, but they serve a very different market. The have phones with an integrated smart card device for universities, hospitals, governments. They are Cisco certified and have been seling their phones with Cisco gear. With Peerio imbedded in their phones, their customers can deploy without that expensive Cisco product. And even better, customers can create networks that mix Vontel and Adtech phones for different applications within their facilities.
You also had a service provider announcement.
Dmitry -- Atemis in France. They serve Puegeot, Renault, and Carrefours with a CRM solution for their call centers. Right now, all the calls go through a central ACD in Paris where customer data is matched to the call and routed to someone answering the phone. Atemis is using Peerio to eliminate that expensive ACD. They have integrated Peerio directly into their web-based CRM system.
Will you be making any other announcements here at Supercomm?
Dmitry -- We aren't making a formal announcement, but Logicom, the #2 telephone manufacturer in France with 30% market share will be using Peerio in a consumer product. They are building a standard DECT - wireless phone - that will have both a PSTN plug and an ethernet plug. Customers will be able to seamlessly make and receive calls with other Peerio devices and over the PSTN from the same wireless handset.
When can we expect to see all of these products?
Dmitry -- Vontel will be shipping phones by September 1st, Adtech hasn't given us a date yet and Logicom is working to ship their product by the end of this year.
Any other announcements here at Supercomm that we should know about?
Dmitry -- Our advisory board now has some fantastic people, take a look at our press release.
And when will we be able to download Peerio444 and give it a try?
Dmitry -- Soon. I don't want to say when, because we are still testing. But it will be soon. And we are getting ready to allow developers to download and play with the open source component. They still won't be able to compile, because the core won't be available yet. But at least they can look at the product and start thinking about how they want to use it in their applications.
Thanks for taking time here at Supercomm to talk
