New York, NY (PRWEB) February 16, 2010 -- Junction Networks announced today that it supports Extensible Messaging and Presence (XMPP) on any software or phone, enabling OnSIP customers to take advantage of a complete Unified Communications (UC) offering, regardless of the device they use to access it.
OnSIP customers now have access to a complete Unified Communications experience, with no additional cost on any client (phone or software application) supporting these open protocols. For example, the entire OnSIP Unified Communications experience is accessible using Bria, by Counterpath, a leading software application which supports both XMPP and SIP.
"Everyone knows what Skype does; Voice, Video, IM and Presence over the Internet on a Skype software download," said Rob Wolpov, President, Junction Networks. "For businesses, OnSIP goes further, adding a comprehensive package of business services with extensions, auto-attendants, voice mailboxes, conference bridges and much more. And now, our support for these services extends beyond any proprietary software or phone."
"OnSIP now is a comprehensive business communications suite with hosted Voice, IM, Video and Presence services delivered reliably over the Internet to any single or multi-location organization," said Andy Abramson, author of VoIPWatch (http://www.andyabramson.com). "As someone who has been using the service since its launch, the quality and consistency can't be beaten."
"CounterPath's market approach has always been to provide telephony solutions based on SIP and open standards. This allows our technology to be interoperable with a large number of platforms and devices", said Todd Carothers, VP Product Management for CounterPath. "Enabling service solutions like OnSIP builds on the ecosystem of open Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) and plug-and-play options for both business and consumer users, ultimately providing them with more options to enrich their UC experience."
OnSIP recently added HD Voice calling and conference calling features to its existing suite of services. Plans start as low as $39.95 per month.
With more than 5,000 customers, Junction Networks is one of the largest providers of hosted VoIP and IM services to small and medium-sized enterprises. OnSIP, by Junction Networks, is a reliable business class phone service accessed over the Internet for companies with 5 to 100 employees. OnSIP customers enjoy the benefits of a business class phone system, without the traditional high cost, burden and inflexibility.
