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.

Today most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes significant work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reducti...

As you move to the cloud, your network should be efficient, secure, and easy to manage. An enterprise adopting a hybrid or public cloud needs systems and tools that provide: Agility: ability to deliver applications and services faster, even in complex hybrid environments Easier manageability: enable reliable connectivity with complete oversight as the data center network evolves Greater efficiency: eliminate wasted effort while reducing errors and optimize asset utilization Security: imple...
High-velocity engineering teams are applying not only continuous delivery processes, but also lessons in experimentation from established leaders like Amazon, Netflix, and Facebook. These companies have made experimentation a foundation for their release processes, allowing them to try out major feature releases and redesigns within smaller groups before making them broadly available. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Brian Lucas, Senior Staff Engineer at Optimizely, will discuss how by using...
In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busine...
Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable? Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Oleg Chunikhin, CTO at Kublr, will answer these questions and demonstrate techniques for implementing advanced scheduling. For example, using spot instances ...

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
