CounterPath Enables Wireline Mobility Services

Network-agnostic solution lets wireline and VoIP providers enter the mobile market by extending voice and messaging services to smartphones, feature phones and SIP-enabled devices

Vancouver, BC, Canada — December 1, 2010 — 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 with their next release of the Messaging Convergence Gateway (MCG) 2.0, the forthcoming hosted solution will give wireline operators the ability to extend their VoIP and messaging services over the top of mobile networks.

Though debuting in early 2011, several of CounterPath's partners are already poised to bring this solution to market. The solution will be the industry’s first platform to provide single-number reachability for voice, Instant Messaging, and SMS across an operator’s existing wireline VoIP network and on feature phones, smartphones or tablets from any mobile operator.

Juniper Research recently reported that the number of mobile VoIP minutes carried annually on 3G and 4G networks will rise from 15 billion minutes in 2010 to 470.6 billion minutes by 2015. This, coupled with CTIA-The Wireless Association’s report that American SMS usage has increased from 14.4 million messages sent per month to 152.7 billion over the past 10 years, places CounterPath at an advantageous position to capture a large market portion and immediately create new revenue sources.

CounterPath’s wireline mobility services solution will give Internet Service Providers (ITSPs) and wireline operators a cost-effective way to provide SMS services to their VoIP subscribers as well as number of benefits, including: “This offering is the latest example of CounterPath’s leadership in providing solutions that deliver top-line, market-differentiating benefits for ITSPs and wireline operators,” said Donovan Jones, President and CEO of CounterPath. “Our platform provides sophisticated yet easy-to-implement solutions to the challenges of staying connected across a wide variety of devices, networks and technologies. Even more, by creating a hosted wireline mobility services offering, we are enabling operators with a powerful new option for extending their services to the mobile environment to stay relevant while targeting the market for wireline single-number services.”

The wireline mobility services solution also leverages CounterPath’s intellectual property portfolio, which includes patents that enable single-number identities and seamless service delivery across disparate fixed, mobile, legacy and IMS networks.
