Jamcracker Powers BroadSoft Marketplace

Jamcracker, the on-demand services delivery company, and BroadSoft, Inc., the worldwide leader of VoIP applications to the telecommunications industry, today announced an alliance that enables BroadSoft-powered operators to launch custom-branded application stores populated with communications applications and services sourced through the BroadSoft® Xtended program. Powered by the Jamcracker Services Delivery Network (JSDN), the BroadSoft Marketplace brings together third-party applications and services that enrich the communication experiences of business professionals and consumers.

According to Caroline Chappell, analyst at large for Heavy Reading, “Jamcracker is emerging as the go-to choice for carriers that want to get to market quickly with value-added services delivery, without having to incur the expense of building their own delivery platform and negotiating dozens of new distribution agreements. Meanwhile, BroadSoft is a leading provider of VoIP solutions to carriers around the world. With this partnership, the two companies are leveraging each other’s strengths to enable a new ecosystem of BroadWorks®-enabled voice applications that accelerates and expands the value-added services delivery opportunity for carriers and service providers of all sizes.”

Next Generation Business Applications — On-Demand

Through the Jamcracker and BroadSoft partnership, service providers can offer BroadWorks-powered Xtended applications and services on demand via their own online stores. Applications already available include a Voicemail-to-Text transcription service from SpinVox, a mobile unified communications client from MobileMax, and Quickset, an Adobe Air based desktop telephony application from JoeDeveloper. Jamcracker and BroadSoft are also exploring the bundling of Xtended applications with dozens of best-of-breed on-demand communications, collaboration, and business application services that are already part of the Jamcracker global services catalog. These include Hosted Microsoft® Exchange®, SharePoint, Office Communications Server, BlackBerry® and WebEx® conferencing.

The partnership brings together two industry leaders. BroadSoft’s BroadWorks is the de facto standard for VoIP application platforms. More than 450 service providers in 71 countries rely on BroadSoft’s technology to deliver advanced voice and video calling to businesses and consumers. The JSDN is used by hundreds of carriers and IT service providers around the world to establish private-branded marketplaces for delivering value-added services on-demand to their customers and through existing distribution channels. The JSDN is a complete services delivery solution that includes hosting, provisioning, SaaS licensing management, billing, single sign-on, unified services administration and customer support—and requires no complex, costly technology investments by service providers.

“Tapping into third-party developer innovation, the Xtended program is responsible for the creation of innovative communications applications and services which telecommunications service providers can now offer to their end users,” said Leslie Ferry, vice president of marketing at BroadSoft. “Efficient distribution, delivery and monetization of these applications is a key component of Xtended. The power of the JSDN opens the BroadSoft ecosystem to recurring revenue generating, value-added services.”

“The integration of voice with Web, mobility and social networking applications delivers a powerful productivity boost for businesses of all sizes,” said Steve Crawford, vice president of marketing for Jamcracker. “By adding BroadSoft’s portfolio of Xtended applications to the Jamcracker Services Delivery Network, we are enabling carriers to deliver a new set of business productivity solutions to their customer bases, which will help differentiate their core service offerings and generate new, recurring revenue streams.”

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next-gen applications and how to address the challenges of building applications that harness all data types and sources.
