BARCELONA -- BroadSoft, Inc., the leading provider of VoIP application software, today announced that Telefónica de España has deployed VoIP services based on the BroadWorks VoIP application platform.

The service, deployed over the Ericsson infrastructure, is one of the first IMS deployments delivering VoIP services to the residential and SME markets.

Telefonica is using value-adding BroadWorks applications based on an IMS-ready platform to deliver primary line services to residential consumers and SMEs over any broadband connection. Using the BroadWorks platform, Telefónica customers are able to manage their own service preferences via the Web. Premium applications such as simultaneous ring, where any call to the home number will automatically ring any other number specified by the user, can be managed directly by the customer, empowering end users to make their own service changes such as setting up voicemail preferences and call forwarding.

"If there is a ranking of topical issues in the industry at the moment, then IMS and VoIP must be near the top of the list," said Rogier Mol, Senior Analyst European VoIP Infrastructure at IDC. "The promise of IMS to unlock the network to a new breed of applications will first be realised through applications which the user already understands - voice. When you get an operator of the size and scale of Telefónica offering residential VoIP services, then you know that the industry is moving out of hype and into reality. As a side note it should be said that these services are important as an IMS proof-point that will help to drive the number of IMS deployments at other operators."

The Telefónica de España deployment is one of the world's first IMS deployments. BroadWorks applications function independent of the underlying IMS network, simplifying operations and enabling third-party applications, such as presence, to be more easily integrated. BroadSoft's IMS-compliant BroadWorks provides a comprehensive range of VoIP applications, including hosted PBX, IP Centrex, mobile PBX, business trunking and residential broadband services fully integrated into a single hosted communications platform.
