CounterPath Licenses Unified Communications Solution to Verizon Business

CounterPath, which develops softphone and SIP applications, has licensed its software to Verizon Business to enable voice, messaging and presence management in its Integrated Communications Package. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Verizon Business' Integrated Communications Package - currently available to U.S.-based Hosted IP Centrex customers - is a unified communications service which enables employees to control incoming and outgoing calls, access voicemail, manage their online presence, send text messages, and synchronize contacts and calendars.

Specifically, Verizon Business will use the CounterPath C++ SDK (Software Development Kit) to help power the soft phone components of the Integrated Communications Package. The CounterPath SDK runs beneath the surface of the Integrated Communications Package desktop client allowing Verizon Business customers to direct their incoming calls to a traditional phone, computer, mobile phone, PDA or voicemail.
