v2tel moves from open source to BroadWorks platform to expand market scope
GAITHERSBURG, MD, November 15, 2006 - BroadSoft, Inc., a leading provider of VoIP application software, today announced that v2tel, the leading provider of hosted IP PBX solutions to the SME market in Denmark, will deploy next-generation VoIP services based on the BroadWorks® VoIP application platform over its nationwide MPLS network. The move from its open-source platform to BroadSoft's de facto industry standard solution will result in both scalability and increased functionality, allowing v2tel to offer feature-rich communications packages to its customers.
v2tel VoIP customers will be able to take advantage of BroadSoft's desktop toolbar, which allows advanced control of corporate communications features and relevant applications, including video telephony and conferencing. By using the BroadWorks platform, v2tel can deliver unified communications and a 'one number, one experience', whereby any call can be diverted by the user to one or more device of their choice, putting the individual and/or the business in complete control of their own VoIP experience. This is in addition to the standard enterprise telephony features such as voicemail, diverting, call forwarding and call barring.
v2tel is the first Danish operator to run VoIP hosted PBX systems over a multi-protocol label switching (MPLS) network. This enables v2tel to deliver a superior - and guaranteed - quality of service to its customers.
"v2tel is a forward-looking company, and we want to offer value solutions to all levels of enterprises, from those with just two employees to larger enterprises with complex needs that operate over multiple office sites," said Jørgen Weber, v2tel's Administrative Director.
v2tel plans to offer three custom value packages to meet customers'varying communications needs. These packages can be tailored to each enterprise's requirements through a la carte options. "With the expanded range of applications we can offer as part of our new service, we are confident that every customer can find the service that suits their business needs," said Mikkel Vibits, Sales Director of v2tel. "SMEs in Denmark will benefit from improved communications capabilities, resulting in increased productivity."
"The BroadWorks platform is ideal for the service providers who have previously faced problems with scalability, reliability and a restricted range of features," said Michael Tessler, president and CEO for BroadSoft. "v2tel understands that the Danish market is ready for the value-added VoIP applications that it will be able to offer. By deploying BroadWorks over its own nationwide MPLS network, quality is guaranteed, and we will start to see operators like v2tel capturing the revenue that previously went to legacy PBX manufacturers."
The BroadWorks platform will be installed in late November, when v2tel will begin offering the service to users under a pilot scheme. v2tel expects to provide the BroadWorks-based service to new customers by year end. v2tel will migrate existing customers to BroadWorks in early 2007.
