Casa Loma College Upgrades from a PBX to Broadcore's BroadWorks-based Hosted VoIP Solution for Advanced Telephony Features and Simplified Communications System

GAITHERSBURG, MD, April 9, 2008 - BroadSoft Inc., a leading provider of VoIP application software, today announced that Broadcore Inc., a premier provider of hosted PBX services, is employing BroadSoft's VoIP application software as the foundation of its Managed Business Communications Services. The BroadWorks® VoIP platform enables Broadcore to deliver advanced hosted PBX and business trunking services to small and medium-sized businesses throughout California and to multisite U.S.-based businesses nationwide and internationally.

Broadcore selected the BroadWorks platform because it is a complete, scalable hosted PBX platform that requires no third-party solutions. With BroadWorks, Broadcore delivers to its customers a comprehensive solution that eliminates the need for multiple vendors, multiple points of failure and multiple bills. Broadcore's all-in-one VoIP solution includes the provisioning of local loops, local and long-distance services, Internet access, IP equipment, consolidated billing, live round-the clock support and disaster recovery.

"The BroadWorks platform enabled us to migrate from a premises-based PBX VAR (value-added reseller) to a thriving hosted PBX provider servicing thousands of enterprises nationwide," said Monty Ferdowsi, president and CEO of Broadcore, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Nextcom. "Even as a small, local PBX VAR, we are able to provide services that compete nationally and internationally with the biggest names in the business."

Casa Loma College selected Broadcore's BroadWorks-based solution for its two campuses. "Broadcore's all-in-one Hosted Communications solution allowed us to easily transition from a premises-based traditional PBX phone system to their hosted PBX VoIP solution," said Jim Dugan, director of IT at the college. "We were also able to fully integrate our other branch locations on Broadcore's seamless platform and intercom between the locations with ease.

"Because Broadcore offers everything we need on the telecom and Internet access side, we do not have to deal with multiple vendors. They took care of everything, which is something other companies could not offer," added Dugan.

"Today's mobile and multisite environment makes it a requirement that businesses operate and communicate seamlessly from different locations around the country and around the world," said Scott Wharton, vice president of Marketing for BroadSoft. "Broadcore is a shining example of how a service provider can leverage the innovation of VoIP, coupled with a smart customer and employee retention strategy, to significantly expand its business markets."
