CounterPath's X-Lite™ for Linux Recognized for Exceptional Reliability, Flexibility and Innovation in VoIPVancouver, BC, Canada — January 18, 2006 —
CounterPath™ Solutions, Inc. (OTCBB: CTPS), the leading provider of VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol), Video over IP, Instant Messaging (IM), and Presence SIP softphones, today announced that Technology Marketing Corporation's (TMC®) INTERNET TELEPHONY® magazine has named CounterPath's X-Lite™ for Linux as a recipient of the 2005 Product of the Year Award. INTERNET TELEPHONY has been the VoIP Authority Since 1998™.
CounterPath's softphones for Windows, MAC OS X, Pocket PC and Linux are software applications, which run on devices such as personal computers (PCs) or personal digital assistants (PDAs) or can be integrated into set-top boxes, embedded devices, instant messenger applications and alike. When a CounterPath softphone is connected to a service provider's network, the user can make and receive calls to and from other "on-net" callers (IP-to-IP) and/or "off-net" callers (IP-to-PSTN/Cellular) with the same quality of service they would expect from an IP handset. However, at a fraction of the cost, while providing more features and functionality than an IP handset.
"Once again our first-class team, of over 30 engineers, has been recognized for their abilities, providing our award-winning softphones to users on Windows, macOS, Pocket PC and Linux," said Donovan Jones, Vice President of Sales and Marketing of CounterPath. "A key requirement of enterprise customers, and a differentiator of CounterPath softphone solutions compared with those of companies like Microsoft, is a product suite on multiple operating systems easily supported by in-house technical staff."
"Each year INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine bestows its Product of the Year awards on companies that have demonstrated excellence in technological advancement and application refinements. CounterPath has demonstrated to the editors of INTERNET TELEPHONY that its X-Lite for Linux SIP softphone is committed to delivering quality and innovation while addressing the real needs in the marketplace," said Rich Tehrani, Group Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of INTERNET TELEPHONY.
The Product of the Year Award winners for 2005 will be highlighted in the January and February 2006 issues of INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine. They are also available athttp://www.tmcnet.com/voip/0106/special-focus-poty-pr.htm
