VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / February 13, 2020 / CounterPath Corporation (NASDAQ:CPAH) (TSX:PATH), a global provider of award-winning Unified Communications and Collaboration (UCC) solutions for enterprises and service providers, today announced it has secured a deal with Vodafone Fiji to provide Bria mobile applications and Stretto™ Platform services to enable reliable voice calling for up to 700,000 consumers across the Fijian and neighbouring islands. The solution will enhance connectivity and provide seamless communication across the region. The deal includes a five-year subscription to CounterPath Bria mobile clients and Stretto Platform, targeted to provide full coverage to mobile users.
With its population spread across more than 100 islands, Fiji provides a challenging geographic environment for infrastructure developments. However, pricing reductions and an increase in bandwidth availability have caused mobile broadband penetration to increase in recent years1, with Vodafone Fiji being the country's leading provider of mobile voice and data services. CounterPath Bria mobile applications facilitate high-quality, reliable voice and video calling with a variety of HD codecs, while its Stretto Platform services will offer insightful user experience metrics and analytics, and facilitate mobility throughout the South Pacific.
"We're excited about establishing a long-term relationship with Vodafone Fiji," said Todd Carothers, Chief Revenue Officer at CounterPath. "With the CounterPath mobile unified communications solution, Vodafone customers will benefit from a differentiated offering that provides a superior user experience. It's a huge step forward for unified mobile communications in Fiji."
"After evaluating other solutions. CounterPath's Bria and Stretto solution enhanced our offering expectations by tightly controlling the user experience," said Vikash Prasad, Chief Technology Officer at Vodafone Fiji. "We were able to customize the solution to meet our requirements and provide a solution that is differentiated in the region."
