Szenzhen, China and Vancouver, BC, Canada — January 29, 2007 —
Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd., a leader in providing next generation telecommunications network solutions for operators around the world, and CounterPath Solutions, Inc. (OTCBB: CTPS), a leading provider of VoIP (Voice over IP) and Video over IP SIP softphones, today announced that the companies have entered a partnership to provide enriched services for global telecom network operators based on the IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS).
A pioneer in global IMS application, Huawei offers an IMS solution based on 3GPP and TISPAN standards, enabling operators to reap real benefits from Fixed-Mobile Convergence (FMC). CounterPath’s eyeBeam™ 1.5 softphone, which provides VoIP, Video over IP, IM (Instant Messaging) and Presence functionalities, supports recognized SIP standards and is fully interoperable with Huawei’s IMS platform. With the successful integration of CounterPath’s eyeBeam softphone, Huawei’s IMS solution is enhanced to provide end-to-end Fixed-Mobile Convergence (FMC) services, including VoIP, Multi-media Conference, IP Centrex and IM (Instant Messaging). Huawei is working actively on the construction of an IMS industry chain by developing partnerships with leading vendors in areas including service software, access platforms and end-user handsets, with the intention of building an open, collaborative and innovative IMS eco-system.
“With unwavering commitment to our customer-centric approach, we are devoted to providing a commercial IMS end-to-end total solution. CounterPath is a leading global provider of softphones. With successful IOT (inter-operability testing) with CounterPath’s softphone, Huawei’s IMS solution will bring a much richer service experience and more terminal choices for customers, and accelerate the healthy development of the IMS industry chain,” stated Mr. Zha Jun, Director of Huawei’s IMS product line.
“This agreement represents what we deem to be a natural fit between Huawei's world-class IMS solution and our own award-winning softphone technology,” said Donovan Jones, President and COO of CounterPath. “As one of the world’s largest and most respected network solution providers, Huawei is an excellent partner for us.
