BroadSoft and Sonus Partner to Integrate Capabilities

BroadSoft, Inc. (NASDAQ: BSFT) and Sonus Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: SONS) today announced they are partnering to ensure full interoperability of BroadSoft’s BroadWorks®, BroadCloud™ and BroadTouch™ product offerings and the Sonus line of session border controllers (SBCs) for telecommunications service providers, designed to accelerate their deployment of hosted, cloud-based, communication services.

Unified Communications services are increasingly important to service providers:

  • The market for Collaboration Services delivered via cloud deployments is projected to be $22B by 2018. (Source: Forrester, Collaboration Services: Deployment Options For The Enterprise, November 2012)
  • A February 2013 survey found that, while over half of all Unified Communication deployments are premises-based today, that percentage is expected to drop to 31% as future deployments move more to the cloud. (Webtorials Enterprise Survey)

Sonus and BroadSoft can provide simplified network designs to reduce costs by leveraging BroadSoft’s products and the Sonus line of SBCs. Service providers can also use these BroadSoft and Sonus offerings to define and take to market a broad range of Unified Communications services including voice, video calling and conferencing, web conferencing, instant messaging and presence.

Working together BroadSoft and Sonus expect to:

  • Deliver integrated, fully tested and secure Unified Communications, SIP trunking and interworking network components
  • Coordinate sales and go-to-market activities
  • Jointly serve customers through coordinated solution sales, testing and documentation

Quotes:

“BroadSoft and Sonus share a commitment to our global telecommunications service provider customers of providing seamlessly integrated network components,” said Michael Tessler, president and CEO of BroadSoft. “By partnering with Sonus to fully test pre-integrated solutions, we believe we are simplifying the network support of our customers’ Unified Communications solutions.”

“BroadSoft is a well-established leader in helping service providers create and monetize new services and capabilities,” said Ray Dolan, president and CEO of Sonus. “Together, Sonus and BroadSoft products offer a pathway for service providers to leverage their investments as they seek to add new features and capabilities in a manner that is easy to use, simple to manage and affordable to deploy.”

“The interoperability of BroadSoft products with Sonus’ SBCs can help customers accelerate SIP application delivery,” said Diane Myers, Principal Analyst with Infonetics Research. “In a market where speed of deployment and time to revenue are critical success factors, service providers are seeking reliable, integrated solutions that deliver both cost savings and new revenue opportunities through cloud-based unified communications.”

Sonus and BroadSoft are currently working together in test labs and customer engagements.

Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats.

Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.
