Software Development Kit allows customers to build their own customized desktop, tablet and mobile softphone client applications with award-winning CounterPath technologyVancouver, BC, Canada — December 12, 2013 —
CounterPath Corporation (NASDAQ: CPAH) (TSX: CCV), a leading developer of award-winning desktop, tablet and mobile VoIP software products and solutions, today announced the availability of a new Softphone Software Development Kit (SDK) that provides enterprises, operators and solution vendors with the capability to develop customized, SIP-based softphone client applications that encompass proven voice, video and messaging technologies and industry-leading interoperability. In addition to supporting Windows and Mac desktop environments, CounterPath’s new Softphone SDK includes support for Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android mobile platforms.
With the CounterPath SDK, customers that have the necessary in-house software programming expertise to develop their own applications can integrate desktop, tablet and mobile softphone functionality into their solutions without the need to directly handle SIP signaling, SDP (Session Description Protocol) negotiation, media engine/codecs, security and device management. The SDK includes sample application code to further reduce time to market. The CounterPath SDK is developed to support environments natively such as Windows, macOS, iOS and Android.
CounterPath softphone technology is both platform and network agnostic, having passed extensive interoperability testing with the industry’s leading vendors and providers including: Cisco, Avaya, Ericsson, Alcatel-Lucent, NSN, Huawei, BroadSoft, GENBAND, Metaswitch, Genesys, Digium/Asterisk, Mitel, Panasonic, Verizon and others.
"We are continually evolving our offerings to meet the most current needs of the enterprise, operator and vertical markets we serve," said Todd Carothers, EVP Marketing and Products, CounterPath. "The new CounterPath SDK can be applied to many industries including health care, hospitality, and call centers. And because our own market-leading products are leveraging the same SDK, customers can be assured that they are using a highly robust, field proven solution with significant ongoing R&D investment. The new SDK gives users more go-to-market options for a complete solution that integrates with proven and accepted telco standards, products and networks where other SDKs and technologies such as WebRTC fall short."
The new CounterPath SDK replaces the CounterPath legacy SDK products including the C++ SDK for Windows and Mac, and COM and ActiveX SDKs for Windows. Users of CounterPath’s legacy SDKs can learn more about options and incentives for migrating to the new SDK environment by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
