CounterPath Enhances Bria Mobile Applications With SMS, Instant Messaging And Presence

Premium Feature add-on for Bria iPhone and Android softphones to include support for real-time presence management and enable users to send messages across supported IM services - corporate, Google Talk, Facebook and more

VANCOUVER, Aug. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ - For many business users and consumers, having access to instant messaging (IM) is as important as access to voice services or email. As communications increasingly become mobile, the expectation that users be able to engage in IM on mobile devices is increasing. According to Portio Research, there were 311.2 million users of mobile instant messaging in 2010, and this number is expected to reach 1.6 trillion by 2015.

To meet this growing demand for mobile instant messaging, CounterPath Corporation (OTCBB: CPAH) (TSX-V: CCV) has now added support for the two most popular instant messaging and presence protocols: XMPP (Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol) and SIP SIMPLE (Session Initiation Protocol [SIP] for IM and Presence Leveraging Extensions) enabling IM and presence to be purchased as a premium feature add-on within its Bria iPhone Edition mobile softphone application today, with support for Bria Android Edition coming soon.

By purchasing the presence and messaging add-on, Bria mobile app users will be able to see when their contacts are available and send and receive text-based IM with their contacts across any XMPP or SIP SIMPLE supported messaging service including Google Talk, Facebook, and others directly from their mobile smartphones.

Instant messaging enables real-time communication with little to no cost and by taking it mobile and leveraging free Wi-Fi, users are able to chat with colleagues and friends without incurring traditional fees for SMS texting from their wireless provider. Enterprises that have deployed Bria softphones connected to a corporate Instant Messaging and Presence server can now enable their employees to communicate with colleagues over IM whether they are in the office, at home or on the go, making work-related messaging real-time and efficient.
