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.”
Xten will also be demonstrating this new version of the VoIP and Video eyeBeam softphone with IM and Presence support at their booth at the VON (booth No. 833) conference in Boston from October 18th to the 21st.
“Open standards are a key enabler of the flexible, open architectures major operators demand for their next-generation enterprise and carrier-class IM and presence solutions”, explained Robert Sparks chief technology officer at Xten, “By building on these standards, operators avoid being caught in single-providor systems. The new eyeBeam softphone and SDK provide a great opportunity to leverage a truly interoperable SIP, SIMPLE and XCAP end-point for VoIP, Video over IP, Instant Messaging and Presence in any system built around those protocols.”
