SAN JOSE, Calif. -- BroadSoft, Inc., a leading provider of VoIP application software, today announced that KPN has chosen BroadSoft's BroadWorks(r) VoIP platform in order to offer complete, fully hosted communications services for the small and medium enterprise (SME) market. The services will initially be offered on a trial basis this spring, with a full rollout later in the year.

The service removes the need for a costly PBX and offers enterprises of all sizes a single communications service that can operate over multiple sites using standard IP handsets and softphones, as well as integrating with PC applications for complete "click-to-dial"and "follow-me" functionality. The BroadWorks platform being deployed by KPN can deliver VoIP applications across both fixed and mobile networks, providing both the operator and its SME customers with maximum flexibility to deploy further value-added services in the future.

KPN has adopted the BroadWorks "software as a service" model for its VoIP application. The service is hosted in its fixed network enabling KPN to offer an integrated communications solution to SMEs. As a hosted VoIP service, end-user customers can both avoid the expense of buying and managing a PBX and take advantage of advanced features and services under a "try before you buy" arrangement.

"With the BroadSoft applications software, KPN has the possibility to develop VoIP services for the SME market to establish and develop KPN's position. We can offer our customers services now, which can be developed independent of the location and independent of a PABX, and - because of the chosen IMS architecture - can also be integrated for fixed and mobile," said Louis Rustenhoven, vice president of Voice for KPN. "We are pleased to have started down this road with BroadSoft to introduce a range of new services that will make major changes to how all businesses can communicate."
