BroadSoft and Varaha Systems Partner to Enable Fixed-Mobile Convergence Offering for SimpleSignal's Hosted SMB Customers
BroadSoft Certifies Varaha's uMobility Solution with BroadWorks; SimpleSignal to Deploy the Joint FMC Solution as 'SimplyMobile' in California and Colorado Markets
DALLAS, TX, DANA POINT, CA AND SCOTTSDALE, AZ – October 7, 2008: Varaha Systems, Inc., a leading provider of fixed-mobile convergence (FMC) solutions, and BroadSoft, Inc., the leading provider of VoIP application software, announced today that BroadSoft has certified Varaha's uMobility™ solution with BroadWorks® to enable a turn-key FMC solution for BroadSoft® service providers to market and deploy to their small and medium-sized business (SMB) customers.
The combined fixed-mobile convergence solution from Varaha and BroadSoft is being deployed by SimpleSignal, a hosted VoIP service provider based in California and Colorado.
BroadSoft provides VoIP applications and SIP trunking to telecommunication carriers worldwide, has completed certification of Varaha's uMobility FMC solution with BroadWorks, BroadSoft's industry-leading VoIP application platform for fixed-line and wireless service providers. BroadWorks offers a range of carrier-grade applications that includes hosted PBX, unified communications, mobile PBX, business trunking, and residential broadband.
Varaha's patented uMobility solution lets subscribers make and receive BroadWorks calls from their cell phone – anytime, anywhere. uMobility works with all cellular networks and most popular Wi-Fi infrastructure solutions. By certifying the products together, the companies offer service providers a complete FMC solution for customers of all sizes.
"By partnering with Varaha BroadSoft is demonstrating our commitment to leading the evolution of fixed mobile convergence." said Leslie Ferry, Vice President of Marketing for BroadSoft. "SimpleSignal and other service providers can continue to offer innovative voice services to their business customers."
"BroadSoft is clearly the leader in the VoIP application server market," said Jogen Pathak, CEO of Varaha. "Their certification, combined with SimpleSignal's deployment, validates uMobility as an excellent solution for wireline service providers who are looking to differentiate their service offerings while winning-back talk minutes currently being lost to the cellular operators."
"Our new SimplyMobile offering perfectly leverages the BroadSoft/Varaha partnership – it combines the convenience of cellular with the features and cost savings provided by hosted VoIP services," said David Gilbert, Founder and President of SimpleSignal. "We believe the simplicity of having all your business and personal communications managed by one number, one phone and one voicemail box will be extremely attractive to our business subscribers."
Today, everyone is using a cell phone at the office and at home due to the convenience of mobility. However, with poor in-building cellular coverage and multiple ways to communicate, the result is often missed calls and increased costs. uMobility enables cell phone users to make/receive BroadWorks calls directly from their smartphone – anytime, anywhere – regardless of their physical location or cell phone provider.
uMobility also allows BroadWorks subscribers to roam between cellular and Wi-Fi networks. The solution automatically hands-off calls between networks and dramatically improves the quality of cell phone conversations that occur inside buildings. The cost savings and productivity gains realized from uMobility are equally applicable to all types of businesses from small, home offices that "always want to be at the office" to larger enterprises with multiple locations and highly mobile staff.
