Telio AS has recently licensed Xten softphone technology for bundling with the Telio VoIP and Video Service currently being offered in Norway, The Netherlands, Denmark and SwedenSanta Clara, CA — April 27, 2005 —
Xten Networks, Inc. (OTCBB: XNWK), a provider of VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol), Video over IP, Instant Messaging (IM), and Presence SIP softphones, today announced that Telio AS has licensed Xten's eyeBeam Software Development Kit (SDK) which Telio will use to build their own VoIP and Video softphone for use within their market-leading and fastest-growing access-independent Broadband Telephony network in Europe. "We are very pleased to have Telio as a customer and look forward to their aggressive roll-out of our VoIP and Video softphone," said Erik Lagerway, COO and President of Xten.
Xten's softphones are software applications, which run on devices such as personal computers (PCs) or personal digital assistants (PDAs) or can be easily integrated into web pages or web applications. 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 their IP handset, at a fraction of the cost, while providing more features and functionality than the IP handset.
"Telio offers primary line replacement services, so we must set very strict standards with regard our services being high quality and a true plug and play experience for the end user. The powerful SDK of eyeBeam enable us to offer a soft phone experience for our users that is both extremely easy to use while offering advanced functionality like video capabilities and wideband audio," added Espen Fjogstad, CEO of Telio.
Telio has, in less than 18 months, become Europe's leading and fastest-growing access-independent Broadband Telephony provider. Telio is offering primary line replacement VoIP services, and is moving nearly 1% of the Norwegian broadband population to its services every month. With offices in Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Switzerland and the Netherlands, the company is also offering its advanced production platform to European ISPs and carriers on an OEM basis.
