EarthLink Selects Xten's VoIP SIP Softphones

EarthLink has licensed co-branded versions of Xten's X-PRO and X-Lite softphones for use with its new Earthlink Free Online Calling service. softphones are fully RFC3261 (SIP), RTP/RTCP (RFC 1889) and SDP (RFC 3264) compliant. They are available for Windows (Windows 98SE/ME/NT 4/2000/XP/CE), Mac OS X and Pocket PC operating systems. Financial terms were not disclosed. http://www.xten.com

  • Earlier this month, EarthLink began offering free SIP-based calling to its 1.2 million broadband access members. The service uses an Xten's X-Lite softphone or an ATA (Analog Telephone Adapter). It provides unlimited, high-quality calls to other SIP users, voicemail accessible via email and other features. In addition, EarthLink has partnered with other SIP providers to exchange calls. These partnerships give EarthLink Free Online Calling subscribers free VoIP access to anyone using SIP-based services, including SIPphone and Free World Dialup. Last year, EarthLink began offering a paid "Unlimited Voice" service, providing subscribers with a flat-rate, broadband telephony service that can reach wireless or traditional land-based telephones.
