Dutch wholesale ISP targets SME with hosted unified communications solution
Amsterdam, Netherlands and Gaithersburg, Maryland October 21, 2008 — BroadSoft, Inc., the leading global provider of voice-over-Internet-protocol (VoIP) applications to the telecommunications industry, today announced that its BroadWorks® application platform has been selected by Dutch wholesale ISP RoutIT to deliver voice and multimedia services to the small-medium enterprise market in the Netherlands.
RoutIT delivers connectivity, security, hosting and storage services to more than 500 system integrators and 20,000 businesses in the Netherlands, which has a market potential of 100,000 IP Centrex ports. RoutIT is deploying the BroadWorks platform to initially enrich that service offering with IP Centrex telephone services. Additionally RoutIT will use the BroadSoft Xtended program to allow its resellers to customise applications for specific enterprise workflow requirements.
"We evaluated a number of suppliers for our IP Centrex service," said Jan Hein de Baat, CEO of RoutIT. "Really there was only one choice for us as RoutIT only works with market leaders and needed a system that was designed from the start to support a wholesale service model. The fact that we can combine the BroadSoft platform with other industry leading suppliers with complete confidence re-enforced our decision."
"RoutIT joins more than 90 operators who have deployed BroadWorks® in the European, Middle East and African regions," said Craig Decker, vice president of sales for BroadSoft. "The combination of the BroadWorks Xtended program and application customization will be extremely powerful for the fast growing Dutch market."
RoutIT deploy service at customer locations by the end of 2008.
