GAITHERSBURG, Md. -- BroadSoft® Inc., the leading provider of VoIP application software, today announced that Broadwing Communications, LLC has deployed Broadsoft's BroadWorks® platform. Broadwing is using BroadSoft's technology as a key component of its innovative network, delivering nationwide VoIP services designed to meet the needs of multi-site enterprises.

Broadwing selected BroadWorks because of its integrated and open-standards based architecture, carrier-class reliability and extensive feature set. This unique combination of benefits allows the company to easily introduce new, next-generation features to its customer base.

"BroadSoft's technology provided a single, carrier-class platform that best met our present and future needs," said Mark Pugerude, senior vice president, marketing and business development for Broadwing. "With BroadWorks, Broadwing is strongly positioned to offer seamless migration to VoIP and unprecedented communications capabilities to our business customers."

The launch of Broadwing's VoIP Integrated Access services (see today's related release: Broadwing Communications Launches Nationwide VoIP Service for Large Multi-site Enterprises) represents the company's initial operational deployment of BroadWorks.

Broadwing's new VoIP Integrated Access services facilitate multi-site interworking by interfacing directly with an enterprise's existing equipment to support VoIP communications. For many large enterprises, unifying VoIP features across branch offices employing a mixture of communications systems has been an economic impediment.

By enabling enterprises to complement and integrate on-site PBX features with advanced hosted VoIP and multimedia features, Broadwing is uniquely positioned to meet the needs of multi-location enterprises.

This capability also can dramatically reduce enterprise customer Wide-Area Network (WAN) communications costs.

Broadwing customers are able to implement VoIP solutions using direct WAN connections among on-premises PBX systems via the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) capabilities of the BroadWorks platform. This further reduces the customer's total cost of ownership by eliminating the need to deploy expensive gateways to the public switched telephone network (PSTN) at each enterprise location site.

"Broadwing is recognized as one of the nation's most aggressive carriers with a reputation for harnessing advanced technologies to deliver state of the art services to its customers," said Mike Tessler, president and CEO of BroadSoft. "Broadwing and BroadSoft are accelerating the business community's ability to enjoy the savings, productivity enhancements and advanced capabilities inherent to VoIP communications."
