PT.com, the Internet subsidiary of the wireline division of Portugal Telecom Group (NYSE: PT – News; visit www.telecom.pt), and Xten Networks, Inc. (OTCBB: XNWK – News), a provider of VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol), Video over IP, Instant Messaging (IM), and Presence SIP softphones, today announced today that PT.com has entered into software licensing agreement with Xten. Under the terms of the agreement, PT.com has licensed Xten’s eyeBeam SDK to develop a softphone application for integration and deployment with the PT.com Broadband Service (SAPO ADSL).
“In the last months, we have been working rather intensively in finding VoIP solutions that will answer the present and future needs of our clients. We believe that this solution with Xten’s trademark is the best way to proceed and succeed in the future,” stated Manuel Rosa da Silva, an Executive Board Member of PT.
“This partnership signifies another carrier win for Xten,” stated Erik Lagerway, president and chief operating officer of Xten Networks. “We are very happy to have been chosen by PT to power their new IP communications soft client and eagerly await their upcoming product launch.”
Xten’s softphones for Windows, MAC OS X, Pocket PC and now Linux are software applications, which run on devices such as personal computers (PCs) or personal digital assistants (PDAs) or can be integrated into set-top boxes, embedded devices, instant messenger applications and alike. When an Xten softphone is connected to a service provider’s network, the user can make and receive calls to and from other “on-net” callers (IP-to-IP) and/or “off-net” callers (IP-to-PSTN/Cellular) with the same quality of service they would expect from an IP handset. However, at a fraction of the cost, while providing more features and functionality than an IP handset.

PT.com is the leading internet provider (ISP) in Portugal with more than 400.000 costumers and the leading internet brand in terms of spontaneous recognition in Portugal (with the SAPO brand).
