Slovenian provider Iskratel signs contract to deploy BroadWorks for Hosted PBX and IP Centrex
GAITHERSBURG, MD, January 3, 2007 - BroadSoft, Inc., a leading provider of VoIP application software, announced today that Iskratel, a leading Eastern European provider specialising in fixed and mobile communications solutions, is using the BroadSoft BroadWorks® VoIP application platform to offer European carriers the most comprehensive wholesale IP Centrex, hosted PBX and residential broadband VoIP services available.
Iskratel will bundle the complete range of BroadWorks advanced voice features-such as user-configurable voicemail-to-email, click to dial and find-me-follow-me services-with extensive professional telecommunications services, including training, portal development, billing and localization for Europe's multi-lingual market.
Iskratel chose BroadSoft in response to an increasing demand for a complete range of advanced enterprise VoIP services, including IP Centrex from traditional IT providers. Previously Iskratel offered only a standard VoIP service for residential broadband service providers. The agreement is already bearing fruit: Telecom Slovenia is adopting the BroadWorks platform in order to offer advanced VoIP services to their enterprise customers.
"We have seen the Eastern European broadband market grow dramatically over the past few years," said Franc Dolenc, product and solutions manager for Iskratel. "As a result there is a community of service providers who are now willing and able to offer VoIP to not only consumers but also the lucrative enterprise market. BroadSoft offers a flexible and customizable solution that offers the redundancy and scalability we require without compromising on feature functionality."
"The value of the hosted communications model widely recognized in the developed western market is becoming increasingly evident to customers worldwide," said Michael Tessler, president and CEO of BroadSoft. "The value of the BroadWorks platform to solutions providers like Iskratel is that it effectively enables carriers and resellers to leapfrog the PBX and in its place offer an affordable, cutting-edge corporate IP communications system that is scalable and future-proof."
