BroadSoft Receives Mobility Tech Zone 2012 LTE Visionary Award

BroadWorks(R) Application Server Honored for Delivering Exceptional LTE Capabilities

GAITHERSBURG, MD -- (Marketwire) -- 01/24/13 -- BroadSoft, Inc. (NASDAQ: BSFT) announced today that Mobility Tech Zone, the leading website dedicated to the mobile broadband industry, has recognized BroadSoft's BroadWorks Application Server as a recipient of the 2012 LTE Visionary Award. Mobility Tech Zone is sponsored by TMC, a global integrated media company, and Crossfire Media, an integrated marketing company with a core focus on technology.

The abundance of broadband that LTE enables has a freeing effect for Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) to provide a carrier-grade quality of experience to users, and with BroadWorks, mobile operators across the globe can meet the bandwidth-intensive requirements for mobile applications, Unified Communications (UC) services, and fixed-mobile convergence. It represents a critical component of BroadSoft's UC-One™ platform, which combines an intuitive user experience, mobile-ready UC services, an open platform and a go-to-market program that enables mobile operators to offer comprehensive unified communications solutions that meet the specific needs of the market segments they serve -- in turn transforming the way enterprise users communicate across all preferred devices.

To ensure that mobile operators can fully leverage UC-One, BroadSoft architected its technology to easily integrate with 2G, 3G, and 4G IMS-based LTE networks. Additionally, because BroadWorks, deployed in more than 70 IMS networks today, has achieved Voice over LTE (VoLTE) IR.92 compliance, mobile operators can seamlessly migrate voice and messaging services to LTE and next generation networks.

BroadWorks is the core component of BroadSoft's UC-One platform that enables MNOs to deliver a superior, LTE-enabled communications experience for the user that extends beyond "best effort" services suitable for consumers but inadequate for the rigors of enterprise use, including:

  • BroadWorks Telephony Application Server, which enables mobile operators to provide enterprises and consumers with a range of cloud-based, or hosted, IP communications, such as IP private branch exchanges, video calling, unified communications, collaboration and converged mobile and fixed-line services.
  • BroadCloud™, a hosted, cloud-based service delivery platform that allows MNOs to rapidly and cost-effectively bring unified communications services to market -- in turn enabling service providers to quickly monetize investments made in LTE networks.
  • BroadTouch™, which provides enterprise users and consumers with intuitive interfaces to access their unified communications (UC) services across their preferred communication device, whether a desktop computer, laptop, smartphone or tablet.

"A key benefit to mobile operators is that BroadWorks is 'future-proof,' in that it works with service providers' existing 2G/3G networks, while enabling seamless migration to LTE networks going forward," said Leslie Ferry, vice president marketing, BroadSoft. "This means mobile operators can immediately begin monetizing LTE investments by delivering advanced applications and services only possible through LTE -- including Voice over LTE (VoLTE), mobile video calling and conferencing, instant messaging and presence and web collaboration. We are honored BroadWorks has been recognized for its industry impact as one of the most innovative, standards-based, telephony application servers available."

"BroadSoft's achievements in advancing 4G through LTE development is impressive and as such selected as recipient of the Mobility Tech Zone LTE Visionary Award," said Carl Ford, co-founder and community developer, Crossfire Media. "BroadSoft is an innovator and one to watch for the next evolution of solutions."

"It is a pleasure to recognize BroadSoft with this award. Their contribution toward the future of mobile broadband is noteworthy," stated Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. "I look forward to more innovation from BroadSoft in the future."

The 2012 LTE Visionary Award winners are published on Mobility Tech Zone and in its e-newsletter.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.
Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings.
