CounterPath, Digium Launch Asterisk-Based Multimedia Softphone

CounterPath Corp., a provider of desktop and mobile VoIP software products and solutions, and Digium, the Asterisk Company, have launched a co-branded VoIP softphone platform: Bria for Asterisk.

Designed for small, medium and large enterprises and certified by CounterPath, Bria for Asterisk takes the advanced telephony and multimedia communications features found on Asterisk servers and brings them to the desktop level.

Based on open standards, Bria for Asterisk combines Digium’s Asterisk, AsteriskNOW and Asterisk Business Edition telephony platforms with Bria Professional, CounterPath’s enterprise-class, multimedia softphone. Bria for Asterisk gives users advanced telephony features, yet can be quickly set up and configured with any Asterisk deployment.

Bria for Asterisk turns any PC into a multimedia communications center. Users can see presence information for their colleagues, initiate multiparty and multimedia conference calls, access telephony services from Microsoft Outlook and initiate call-handling options, all with just a mouse click.

“With more than a dozen awards for our softphone solutions, CounterPath continues to drive innovation in its softphone suite of products in efforts to unify the desktop experience across multiple platforms and devices,” said Todd Carothers, vice president of product management for CounterPath. “Our partnership with Digium gives businesses an integrated VoIP solution that marries two best-in-breed offerings. Bria for Asterisk, based on our flagship softphone Bria, seamlessly interoperates with Asterisk, enabling SMBs and enterprises to confidently implement a complete end-to-end VoIP solution that is powerful and easy to install. The next version of the Bria for Asterisk softphone will also include auto-provisioning, making for an even more valuable and cost-effective business communications solution.”
