Service targets SMBs and large enterprises with BroadWorks Mobile PBX, advanced IP features including Remote Office and Sim Ring
PHOENIX, AZ, BROADSOFT CONNECTIONS 2006, October 17, 2006 - BroadSoft, Inc., a leading provider of VoIP application software, and Atreus Systems™, the leading supplier of IP provisioning software, today announced at the BroadSoft Connections 2006 Executive Users Conference that Centennial Communications Corp. (NASDAQ: CYCL), a provider of wireless and wired communications and business solutions in Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the United States, has chosen BroadSoft's BroadWorks® VoIP application platform to offer Mobile PBX telephony services. Centennial has completed BroadSoft's QuickStart Express program with VoIP provisioning partner Atreus Systems Inc., in preparation of launching Mobile PBX services.
Centennial is the first carrier in North America to offer BroadSoft's Mobile PBX application, an advanced, differentiated solution to IP PBXs and mobile IN solutions. BroadWorks Mobile PBX delivers the same feature-rich enterprise functionality to mobile devices that is available with hosted PBX. BroadWorks features available through Centennial's Mobile PBX offering will include remote office, selective call acceptance, call notify, auto attendant and simultaneous ring-where any call to an office number will automatically ring any other number specified by the end-user.
Centennial expedited its go-to-market strategy by going through the QuickStart Express program with BroadSoft and VoIP provisioning partner Atreus Systems.
"Fast-growing SMBs and enterprises in Puerto Rico conduct business across the Caribbean and in mainland U.S. states, such as Florida and New York, and require telephony services with a high degree of flexibility, scalability and mobility," said Carlos Blanco, president of Centennial de Puerto Rico. "BroadWorks Mobile PBX will give these companies and entrepreneurs the telecommunications capabilities they need to operate anywhere, at any time, on any device. BroadSoft and Atreus complemented our product deployment efforts very well, culminating in a highly successful launch."
Built on best practices, BroadSoft's QuickStart Express defines a planning, sales and deployment model and provides supporting go-to-market framework, toolkits and collateral for telecom service providers. Atreus Systems extends the BroadSoft QuickStart Express program with automated provisioning and customer self-management software for BroadWorks that enables Centennial to automate the provisioning of BroadSoft's Mobile PBX features, while streamlining service ordering, simplifying VoIP bundle package creation, and automating IP phone ordering, shipment and configuration.
"Our pre-packaged provisioning support for BroadSoft's QuickStart Express program will empower Centennial to become operational quickly by simplifying the complex processes in deploying the Mobile PBX application," said Andrea Baptiste, CEO of Atreus Systems.
"Centennial is leveraging its strong market position with enterprises by offering VoIP through our Mobile PBX solution," said Michael Tessler, president and CEO of BroadSoft. "This agreement also shows that Centennial is willing to lead the way in providing advanced telecommunications technology among carriers in North America and the Caribbean."
