CounterPath launches Asterisk-Based Multimedia Softphone

by Rob Lewis

Vancouver's CounterPath Corporation launched a co-branded voice over IP (VoIP) softphone platform with Digium called Bria for Asterisk today.

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, improving employee productivity and collaboration.

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.

Both CounterPath and Digium have been widely embraced by the open-standards community. CounterPath has shipped more than six million softphones to date, and its free SIP-based softphone, X-Lite, is currently downloaded more than 5,000 times a day.

Digium’s Asterisk telephony platform is installed on more than four million servers to date and is downloaded more than 3,000 times a day. The Bria for Asterisk offering brings together the best of both offerings for SMB and enterprise customers.
