Leveraging BroadSoft’s UC-One® application, mobility now core to service providers’ hosted unified communications offerings for business customers
GAITHERSBURG, Md., March 4, 2015 – BroadSoft, Inc. (NASDAQ: BSFT) today announced that it has surpassed 750,000 mobile unified communications (UC) lines deployed globally. BroadSoft is an industry leader in bringing innovative services to market while enabling the evolving communications and collaboration needs of an increasingly mobile workforce.
The 750,000 mobile UC lines milestone and the fact that BroadSoft recently surpassed 10 million hosted unified communications lines deployed demonstrate growing business demand for BroadSoft’s UC-One® application – a full unified communications experience that makes voice, video, business directories, call logs and instant messaging and presence available on a single interface. BroadSoft customers have the option to deploy unified communications services via the BroadWorks® platform or via BroadCloud®, a fully-managed end-to-end service that significantly shortens the time it takes service providers to enter this fast growing market.
“By taking advantage of BroadSoft’s deep mobile UC feature set and LTE integration, mobile operators are able to make mobility the core component of their small business and midmarket hosted UC offerings,” said Michael Tessler, president and chief executive officer, BroadSoft. “At the same time, BroadSoft has customers with more than 200,000 mobile UC lines deployed, indicating that mobility is driving day-to-day communications and collaboration at businesses of all sizes and across all markets.”
After significant investments in their 4G LTE networks over the past several years, mobile operators are leveraging BroadSoft’s platform to monetize these investments through the rapid deployment of mobile unified communications services and ability to capture new revenue opportunities that historically went to PBX vendors selling voice trunks. BroadSoft’s fully integrated mobility solutions can extend a single rich user experience across all user devices, with mobile, tablet and PC operating environments supported via native, client or web based access.
