GAITHERSBURG, Md. -- BroadSoft, Inc., the leading provider of VoIP application software, today announced the availability of its Xtended Services Interface (Xsi), new RESTful application programming interfaces (APIs) that will allow Web developers to integrate BroadSoft's carrier-grade voice applications with unified communications solutions and Web-based business and consumer applications, such as and Facebook.

The Xsi is the latest component to be announced as part of the BroadSoft® Xtended Program, BroadSoft’s initiative for the creation of mashups that integrate BroadSoft’s BroadWorks® VoIP platform with other applications that are already being used by millions. The RESTful-based Xsi allows subscriber and call resources to be accessed and used via HTTP and simple XML. This approach requires less client-side software to be written than other approaches and is becoming the overwhelming choice for developers to create Web applications.

“With the Xsi, it is easier than ever for developers to add BroadWorks calling features to their favorite applications,” said Scott Hoffpauir, CTO for BroadSoft. “By making the Xsi available, we’re speaking the language of most software developers. We expect the introduction of the Xsi to boost innovation and development of new apps exponentially.”
