Internet Telephony Service Providers Can Now Certify Their Service with
CounterPath's Bria iPhone Edition Softphone and Simplify Provisioning
VANCOUVER, May 24, 2011 /CNW/ - CounterPath Corporation (TSX-V: CCV) (OTCBB: CPAH), an award-winning provider of desktop and mobile Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP)
software solutions, today announced that it has launched an online
certification program for Internet Telephony Service Providers (ITSPs).
The CounterPath ITSP Partner Program enables ITSPs to certify their
service with CounterPath's mobile softphone, Bria iPhone Edition, and
provide a pre-provisioned service option within the softphone client.
By participating in the ITSP Partner Program, ITSPs can provide their
customers with a premier softphone option that is easy to activate and
use. The program also helps ITSPs expand their market reach by
leveraging the CounterPath softphone user base.
"Joining CounterPath's ITSP Partner Program and certifying our OnSIP
Hosted PBX service with Bria iPhone Edition was an obvious choice for
us," said Robert Wolpov, President and Founder of Junction Networks.
"OnSIP was specifically designed to provide small and medium-size
businesses with access to enterprise-grade PBX systems. Partnering with
CounterPath has now given us the ability to offer these services within
a first-class, enterprise-grade mobile softphone."
Registration for the CounterPath ITSP program is free via the
CounterPath website. ITSPs receive an Acceptance Test Procedure (ATP)
to complete and, once approved, the ITSP Partner will appear in a list
of pre-provisioned VoIP providers within the mobile softphone
application. CounterPath Certified ITSP Partners also gain exposure on
CounterPath's website and receive a CounterPath Certified logo for use
in their customer collateral.
"The launch of the CounterPath ITSP program is exciting for us, the ITSP
community and their customers," said Todd Carothers, Senior Vice
President of Marketing and Products, CounterPath Corporation.
"CounterPath Certified ITSPs will benefit from the opportunity to offer
their existing customers an unsurpassed mobile softphone experience
while enjoying exposure to potential new customers. For end users,
having a wide array of certified VoIP services available for easy
activation or subscription through CounterPath's Bria iPhone Edition
makes setting up mobile VoIP quick and painless. At CounterPath, we
have always been dedicated to simplifying the softphone experience, and
our ITSP Program is an important step in this direction."
The CounterPath ITSP program is available immediately for certification
with CounterPath's Bria iPhone Edition softphone. Certification with
the company's Bria Android Edition softphone will be available soon,
with the award-winning Bria desktop softphone to follow.
