January 12, 2012

TMC, a global, integrated media company, has recognized CounterPath's Bria iPhone Edition, Bria iPad Edition and Bria Android Edition mobile softphones as recipients of the 2011 INTERNET TELEPHONY Product of the Year Award.

Robert Brown, vice president of Product Marketing said that TMC's acknowledgement of three Bria product editions is continued evidence of CounterPath's leadership.

“We continually invest in our products to ensure feature depth and breadth as well as wide interoperability with the leading voice and video platforms on the market today. This award not only recognizes these strengths but also the significant innovation that we bring to the market across the various operating systems and devices that are actively used by consumers, pro-sumers and enterprises users daily,” he added.

To meet up with the growing demand, CounterPath has even enhanced Bria iPhone and Android (News - Alert) softphones features and the two most popular instant messaging and presence protocols, XMPP and SIP SIMPLE will be now supported by Bria. This has enabled instant messaging on the softphones and the support for real-time presence management has been included as a premium feature.

“I am happy to grant CounterPath with three Product of the Year Awards. The editors of INTERNET TELEPHONY have verified that Bria iPhone, iPad and Android Editions have all displayed quality and innovation plus address real needs in the marketplace,” stated Rich Tehrani, TMC CEO. “I would like to congratulate the entire team at CounterPath for their commitment to advancing IP communication technologies.”
