Advanced VoIP Applications allow businesses to generate value from communications infrastructure
GAITHERSBURG, MD. - February 6, 2006 - BroadSoft Inc, the leading provider of VoIP application software, today announced that Stockholm-based ISP venture DGC, will launch triple-play style communications services to small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) in its home country, Sweden. The range of IP-based services, provided over the BroadWorks VoIP application platform, will offer SMEs a cost effective means to deploy communications that to date have been the preserve of larger businesses.
DGC undertook extensive commercial and technology benchmarking of VoIP applications before establishing the BroadWorks platform as the best fit for its market requirements. In a fast-developing market, the ability to deploy services within a short timeframe was a key contributory factor to DGC's final decision. BroadWorks has already undergone a series of internal tests and full functionality is expected to be in place by mid-February.
The BroadWorks platform enables DGC to deliver flexible communications capability throughout the enterprise, instantaneously bringing voice, data and video together at the desktop, providing true enterprise-class triple-play services to SMEs at economical rates.
Targeting businesses from 5 to 500 end-users, DGC aims to become the critical communications partner for a category of Swedish businesses previously excluded from such feature-rich solutions. DGC will initially offer BroadWorks' hosted PBX application which delivers a complete suite of enhanced PBX functionality over any IP connection, allowing businesses to set up different users and groups at will according to individual communications needs and at a fraction of the current cost.
"SMEs should look at IP as a means to tip the balance in their favour, allowing communications to work for them, not against them," said Gustaf Karling, Managing Director for DGC Communications. "The availability of BroadSoft's VoIP application software represents a chance for Swedish businesses to see communications in a completely new light. IP telephony allows companies to extract more out of their data communications investment in the same way that a bigger enterprise uses it to drive revenue."
"DGC's business triple-play offering opens up feature-rich functions that enhance business opportunity and replicate efficiency across the organisation," said Michael Tessler, president and chief executive officer for BroadSoft. "As a service oriented business, DGC will deliver VoIP communication services as an integral part of its growing role as total infrastructure partner for SMEs."
The availability of DGC's first hosted PBX application will be followed by additional wireless and wireline services offered through the BroadWorks platform. These may include IP Centrex for traditional calling features (i.e., call forwarding), Mobile PBX to extend calling features to wireless devices and Business Trunking to interconnect customer premise equipment.
DGC offers Business Triple Play services to small and midsize companies in the Nordic market. Through DGC's state-of-the-art network, customers receive IP communication, IP-telephony and advanced networking functions delivered directly to the network by a single vendor. DGC provides an all-in-one communications package and single customer interface for networking, support and invoicing.
