CounterPath Announces Stretto Platform(TM) Addressing the User Experience Gap in Unified Communications

Stretto Platform enriches the user experience across Enterprise and Operator OTT solutions over virtually any UC platform

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/27/14 -- CounterPath Corporation (NASDAQ: CPAH)(TSX: CCV), a leading developer of award-winning UC over-the-top (OTT) solutions for desktop, tablet and mobile solutions for operators and enterprises, today announced the availability of the Stretto Platform™, a comprehensive server architecture which supports an enriched user experience for existing and new unified communications OTT deployments for operators and enterprises.

In combination with the Bria product suite, Stretto™ drives productivity improvements, reduces operating costs and improves the end-user experience by tightly coupling Bria clients with a flexible and modular server solution for client provisioning, network convergence, messaging and presence services, while providing real-time performance feedback and trouble-shooting data to the IT team. Stretto builds on CounterPath's proven CCS and NCG server technology, providing a modular solution with optional add-on services catering to the operator's or enterprise's specific requirements.

The Stretto Platform addresses the user experience in five key areas:

End User Provisioning and Support:


--  Provisioning Module: Automatically provisions CounterPath clients with
    over 250 features and settings as specified by IT.
--  User Experience Metrics Module: Reports critical data summarizing
    service quality, device usage, feature usage and other helpful
    information that can only be provided from a client and server solution.
--  Help Desk Module: Enables help-desk staff to access the end-user's Bria
    application for trouble shooting and to access log files (end-user must
    provide permission).

Solution Support:


--  Push Notification Module: Enables a Power Saver feature that provides
    near zero battery loss on Android and iOS devices when Bria is running
    in the background.

Service Support:


--  Contact Discovery Module: Enables operators to leverage the user's
    address and identify what other address book contacts are using the
    service.

Convergence Support:


--  Call & Message Continuity Module: Enables a single number to map voice,
    messaging, text and video services over disparate networks and any
    device.
--  Subscriber Line Proxy Module: Reduces costs of adding additional lines
    to an existing platform that supports charging for additional devices to
    be connected to a single subscriber line.

Messaging & Presence Support:


--  XMPP Messaging & Presence Module: Provides an XMPP server for messaging
    and presence services supporting a number of extensions for operator and
    enterprise deployments.
--  SIP/SIMPLE Messaging & Presence Module: Provides a SIP/SIMPLE server for
    messaging and presence services supporting a number of extensions for
    operator and enterprise deployments.
--  SMS over IP Module: Enables SMS for wireline providers and mobile
    operators that want to deliver SMS messages to a Bria client.
--  Messaging Sync Module: Leveraging Stretto's Messaging & Presence
    Modules, the Messaging Sync Module synchronizes messages across Bria
    desktop, smartphone and tablet clients.

Enterprises are expected to spend over $15 billion on network equipment in 2014, while operators are expected to spend over $80 billion, according to industry analyst Gartner. With its new Stretto Platform and market leading Bria clients, CounterPath is positioned to capitalize upon these enormous opportunities by partnering with market leading equipment vendors to provide market differentiating value to current and future deployments that are not directly competitive to the main suppliers of network infrastructure.

"Internet OTT solutions such as Skype, WhatsApp and Viber have evolved consumer expectations for all communications, both personal and professional," said Todd Carothers, Executive Vice President of Marketing and Products at CounterPath. "To compete, operators and enterprises need OTT solutions that will not only strengthen customer relationships and reduce customer churn (for operators), and increase employee productivity, ensure data security and reduce operating costs (for enterprises) but also offer the plug-and-play functionality and ease of use that today's end users demand. When coupled with the Bria client, CounterPath's new Stretto platform enables enterprises and operators to launch their own OTT services across most UC-based server architectures, including Alcatel-Lucent, Avaya, BroadSoft, Cisco, Ericsson, GENBAND, Metaswitch, NEC and others, which not only meet their operational requirements but assure an end-to-end user experience that is of the highest quality."

CounterPath's Bria clients are available today for desktop, tablet and mobile. The Stretto Platform will be available in September to all customers through CounterPath direct and indirect sales channels.
