CounterPath is embracing Apple’s mobile platform with the release of Bria iPhone Edition that in addition to the iPhone, also sings along the iPod Touch and iPad. The application is a highly secure, standards-based VoIP softphone that works over both 3G and WiFi networks, integrating seamlessly with other CounterPath desktop and convergence solutions, as well as with enterprise and carrier infrastructure equipment from major vendors. Bria iPhone Edition also supports Asterisk-based telephony systems.
Like other VoIP solutions for the iPhone, CounterPath’s app leverages the iPhone’s native address book and its embedded Bluetooth technology to provide a “seamless calling experience while on the move.”
In addition to the Bria-branded version, CounterPath will also be developing customized white-label versions of Bria iPhone Edition for carriers, OEMs and enterprise customers worldwide through its professional services team.
Bria iPhone Edition costs $3.99 and users can also additionally upgrade to include the G.729 codec support — the “default” version supports G.711 and GSM codecs.
