Is Istanbul a threat to Xten?

During the 3 days the show floor was open at VON I had 20 Press and Analyst interviews. There were quite a few who had questions regarding Microsoft’s announcement of Istanbul and how that may affect Xten’s market for SIP softphones. Our response is simple, Istanbul is still an enterprise play and is not part of our target market. I actually think it’s great because it will educate the business sector which will of course help foster the growth of IP communications in general. Xten sells soft SIP endpoints to anyone who wants to buy, the volume discounts are the same for all. This is why we are favoured by the carriers, multiple service operators and large service providers.

Xten does have enterprise customers but we do not go looking for that business, as a matter of fact we have yet to place an outbound sales call! It’s the truth! Since this company started selling software back in May of last year we have not made 1 outbound sales call. We are hiring people like mad and we are STILL in reactionary mode from a sales perspective. Xten is in a very unique position, the excitement around our products and company is something I have personally never been part of before. It’s unreal!

There are so many awesome things happening here, I wish I could SAY SOMETHING!!! 🙂

Xten Demonstrates VoIP, Video, Instant Messaging and Presence at BroadSoft Connections Conference

BroadSoft customers today had a sneak preview of Xten’s enhanced eyeBeam SIP softphone supporting VoIP, Video, Instant Messaging and Presence based on open standards

SANTA CLARA, CA, Oct. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ – Xten (OTCBB: XNWK – News), a provider of VoIP (Voice over IP) and Video over IP SIP softphones, today announced support for Instant Messaging and Presence using IETF proposed standards including SIMPLE (SIP for Instant Messaging and Presence Leveraging Extensions) and XCAP (Extensible Mark-up Language (XML) Configuration Access Protocol) will be publicly available very soon. Xten demonstrated the new IM and Presence features to be offered in eyeBeam and the eyeBeam SDK at BroadSoft Connections Conference in Phoenix yesterday.

“The crowd was very excited to see SIMPLE and Presence with Centralized Buddy Lists in action in an open standards softphone”, commented Erik Lagerway, president and chief operating officer at Xten, “Based on the feedback we have received the eyeBeam VoIP and Video softphone SDK with support for SIMPLE and XCAP will be an attractive alternative to other somewhat proprietary offerings already available and soon to be launched in the market.”
