CounterPath, a provider of VoIP software solutions for both desktop and mobile devices, has released the latest version of its Bria multitasking, multi-account VoIP software solution for Apple’s (News - Alert) iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.
Bria iPhone Edition 1.1 allows iOS 4 users, as well as those using older devices running iPhone 3.0 to enjoy multitasking on the iPhone (News - Alert) in order to help them increase productivity and perform other tasks while taking calls.
Compatible with Apple’s new iOS 4, this latest version of Bria will automatically allow iPad users to enjoy its multitasking capabilities once iOS 4 for iPad is released. In addition, Bria iPhone Edition 1.1 can also support as many as eight accounts, including separate numbers, to allow users to stay connected to all accounts throughout the day via a single login.
As such, this newest iteration of Bria allows the large and increasing number of organizations deploying compatible devices to maintain high productivity even when not at their offices or desks.
Other key features of Bria iPhone Edition 1.1 include: seamless integration with other solutions from CounterPath (News - Alert) and with equipment manufactured by other vendors such as Ericsson, Metaswitch and NEC; full SIP compliance; Bluetooth support to enable hands-free calling for iPhone and iPod Touch users; multi-call management options; DTMF support; enterprise-level security via SRTP and TLS; customized branding as an option for mobile-service providers and enterprises; and support for Asterisk (News - Alert)-based telephony systems.
Current users of Bria iPhone Edition will automatically receive an update to Version 1.1 when it becomes available.
Todd Carothers, VP Product Management, CounterPath, said that this new version of Bria iPhone Edition helps iPhone users enjoy the next generation of VoIP services by letting them take one or more of their VoIP accounts mobile. Carothers said that Bria 1.1 helps iOS 4 users become completely liberated, thanks to its full multi-account support and multitasking capabilities.
