LISBON, Portugal and DENVER -- Jabber, Inc. today announced that Portugal Telecom, through its Internet Service Provider (ISP) subsidiary, SAPO, has extended its license of the Jabber Extensible Communications Platform (Jabber XCP) as it integrates presence with its voice, video, and text chat offering across the fixed and mobile platforms used by its customers. Additionally, Portugal Telecom is deploying the Jabber Instant Messaging and Presence Service (Jabber IMPS) server extension for Jabber XCP, which will allow Portugal Telecom's mobile subscribers to seamlessly access the same instant messaging (IM) and presence services from their mobile phone that they enjoy on their desktop with SAPO Messenger. On the desktop, SAPO has introduced the new SAPO Messenger client with built-in voice, video, and text capabilities.

"SAPO Messenger is a powerful example of the advanced presence-driven messaging and multi-media capabilities enabled by Jabber XCP," said Tony Bamonti, senior vice president of telecom. "The server and client work seamlessly with the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP)-based voice and video capabilities Portugal Telecom has built internally, and the client has a unique interface that has been honed for the regional market served by SAPO and Portugal Telecom."

"We chose Jabber, Inc. because their solutions offered us maximum flexibility, scalability, and extensibility for converged presence-enabled services," said Celso Martinho, SAPO's chief technology officer. "In a relatively short period of time we've been able to create a product that exceeds our customers' needs, integrates easily with our existing services, allows seamless movement between mobile and fixed environments, and clearly differentiates us from our largest competitors."
