Under the terms of the agreements, Hana Micron will be a representative of CounterPath's softphone products in the Korean market and CounterPath will be a representative of Hana Micron's VoIP products in the United States, Canada and all European markets.
The relationship not only creates new sales opportunities for both companies in their partner's primary markets, but includes a technical collaboration which will see the integration of superior and field-proven VoIP solutions by CounterPath with Hana Micron's VoIP products. Both parties have agreed to cooperate in entering the IP-TV market by co-developing VoIP solutions for TPS (Triple Play Services: High-speed Internet, Broadcasting, and Telephony).
"Hana Micron is excited by the many opportunities this new relationship with CounterPath brings to us, both in terms of marketability of our current products and co-development with CounterPath of exciting new products," said Sunny Kang, vice president of the Digital Business Division for Hana Micron. "In being able to promote our products to major enterprises in the US, Canada and Europe via CounterPath's widespread sales network, we expect to see increased sales of our products as a result."
"Hana Micron has clearly shown us they have superior USB and MP3 products, which, when combined with our softphones, present interesting and exciting new opportunities to our carrier customers," said Donovan Jones, president and chief operating officer for CounterPath. "We also expect that having a strong partner like Hana Micron represent our products in Asia, and more specifically Korea, will increase our effectiveness of delivering products to these important and growing markets."
