BroadSoft Receives 2012 INTERNET TELEPHONY Product of the Year Award

BroadTouch Business Communicator Recognized as Innovative Approach to Providing Single Unified Communications User Experience

GAITHERSBURG, MD -- (Marketwire) -- 12/17/12 -- BroadSoft, Inc. (NASDAQ: BSFT) announced today that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has named BroadTouch Business Communicator™ as a recipient of the 2012 INTERNET TELEPHONY Product of the Year Award.

BroadTouch Business Communicator is a unified communications (UC) services user interface that enables telecommunications service providers to transform the way individuals communicate by making voice, video, business directory access, call history, instant messaging and presence available through a single interface that spans a user's mobile devices and platforms. BroadTouch Business Communicator brings clarity and simplicity to the muddled communications environment that the Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) mobile enterprise is creating, providing users with a single application they can access across all mobile and PC devices, services and networks, including Windows, Mac, iOS and Android.

"The proliferation of tablets and smartphones unlocks new communications options for consumers and enterprise users, but also creates a singular challenge for service providers -- how to make mobile UC services available on a single interface that spans all of a user's mobile devices and platforms," said Leslie Ferry, vice president marketing, BroadSoft. "BroadTouch Business Communicator was launched to address this critical challenge, and we are honored that INTERNET TELEPHONY has recognized our product for its innovation and potential impact on the market."

"It is with pleasure that we recognize BroadSoft with a Product of the Year Award. The editors of INTERNET TELEPHONY have verified that BroadTouch Business Communicator displays quality and innovation while providing solutions to real business communications challenges," stated Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. "I would like to congratulate the team at BroadSoft for their commitment to advancing IP communication technologies."

2012 Product of the Year winners are published in the January/February 2013 issue of INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine. INTERNET TELEPHONY has been the authority in IP communication since 1998™. For more information about TMC, please visit www.tmcnet.com.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
