Ericsson Resells BroadSoft

PHOENIX -- BroadSoft, Inc., a leading provider of VoIP application software, today announced at the BroadSoft Connections 2006 Executive Users Conference that Ericsson will be delivering the BroadWorks VoIP application server as part of its IMS Multimedia Telephony (IMT) solution. Ericsson is now extending the value of IP Centrex to the enterprise by adding mobile extension capabilities, providing operators with a clearly defined service offering for the enterprise market.

The BroadWorks(r) VoIP application bridges the current gap between the advanced voice and multimedia features available on landline phones in the enterprise and the limited range of enterprise features on mobile phones by unifying the benefits of mobility with next-generation enterprise communications features. As part of the Ericsson IMT solution, BroadSoft's VoIP application software extends enhanced enterprise communications functionality to any mobile devices (2G, 2.5G, and 3G) and provides a transition to IMS for carriers with Class 5, softswitch, packet cable, or hybrid networks. The same BroadWorks VoIP application platform supports these architectures along with IMS and delivers a rich set of call control and enhanced voice features.

"Currently when you leave the office you also leave the advanced applications provided by the enterprise communications system," said Michael Tessler, CEO and President of BroadSoft. "BroadWorks allows operators to unlock the enterprise by delivering advanced PBX-type functionality directly to the end-user's mobile using existing handsets and network infrastructure. Working with Ericsson, we can help operators unlock the enterprise market today and give a clear roadmap for the future."
