eyeBeam SDK Licensed to Enhance PC-to-PC VoIP in Instant MessagingSanta Clara, CA — June 15, 2005 —
Xten Networks, Inc. (OTCBB: XNWK), a provider of VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol), Video over IP, Instant Messaging (IM), and Presence SIP softphones, announced today that Yahoo!, a leading global Internet company, has licensed Xten's eyeBeam software development kit (SDK) to deliver SIP-based PC-to-PC VoIP in the new Yahoo!& Messenger Beta (http://messenger.yahoo.com).
"We are extremely pleased that Yahoo! chose Xten for this project," commented Erik Lagerway, COO and President for Xten. "The excellent call quality with Yahoo! Messenger's PC-to-PC calling feature is a direct result of the combined efforts of our engineering teams."
"Providing a high-quality instant messaging service is our number one priority, which is why we choose to work with Xten Networks, the best-of-breed standards-based voice engine provider, to ensure our users have an exceptional PC-to-PC calling experience," stated Frazier Miller, director of Yahoo! Messenger.
Xten's softphones for Windows, MAC OS X, Pocket PC and now 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 an Xten 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.
Xten is a developer of award-winning, high-quality, carrier-grade SIP softphones for service providers, cable operators, Internet telephony service providers, IP PBX manufacturers and OEMs. Xten's SIP softphones are available either pre-configured or as a software development kit (SDK), and provide VoIP (Voice over IP), Video over IP, IM (Instant Messaging), and Presence functionality. Xten has a feature-rich FREE SIP softphone dubbed X-Lite, in addition to the fully featured X-PRO commercial softphone and eyeBeam, a SIP Video over IP softphone with IM and Presence. Through its deployments with leading service providers, Xten has more than 700,000 IP endpoints deployed worldwide.
