OVERLAND PARK, Kan. -- Sprint’s (NYSE: S) wholesale business unit today announced the availability of Wholesale Mobile Integration, the company’s newest fixed mobile convergence service. Wholesale Mobile Integration enables Sprint’s wholesale customers to deliver a converged solution to their business customers, integrating their wireline and wireless voice networks.

This solution creates a simplified and seamless mobile unified communications experience for end users. Sprint has collaborated with BroadSoft to seamlessly bring together wireless and VoIP elements for service provider customers. In addition to BroadSoft, Sprint is working with other VoIP platform providers and has successfully completed testing with Mitel®, a leading provider of unified communications software solutions and services.

Demand for wireless connectivity continues to grow, with business subscribers expected to grow 7.1 percent over the next three years, outpacing consumer growth estimates of 2.3 percent.1 Wholesale Mobile Integration responds to this demand by enabling carriers, cable operators and other communication service providers to deliver an integrated solution that leverages their existing VoIP platforms, creating a compelling wireless and wireline bundle.

Sprint’s Wholesale Mobile Integration enables wholesale customers to extend their hosted or SIP trunked unified communications services to mobile devices. Many features, such as single-number calling to reach both an employee’s desk or mobile phone; seamless call transfers between the two devices; and one integrated voice mail platform, have shown to improve employee productivity. The service offers efficient communication options and provides a consistent user experience, independent of an individual’s location or communication device. It also extends a broad range of business desk phone features to a user’s mobile device, including abbreviated (4-digit) extension dialing, call center applications, and selective call acceptance/rejection.

“We are thrilled at the launch of Wholesale Mobile Integration, as this product delivers on our promise to integrate wireless and wireline and brings converged solutions to the marketplace,” said Dan Dooley, president-Sprint Wholesale. “Furthermore, our relationship with BroadSoft will help us deliver comprehensive business voice and enable robust mobile unified communications solutions to our customers.”
