Huawei Selects CounterPath’s Softphone

Huawei Technologies and CounterPath Solutions have entered a partnership to provide services for global telecom network operators based on the IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS).

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 soft phone, which provides VoIP, Video over IP, IM (Instant
Messaging) and presence functionalities, supports recognised 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 FMC services, including VoIP, Multi-media Conference, IP Centrex and IM.

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 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. This collaborative effort presents a tremendous opportunity for CounterPath to reach new world-class customers while solidifying our reputation as leaders in SIP applications.”
