A Comprehensive Platform That Enables Telecommunications Service Providers to Offer a Wide Range of Unified Communications Solutions
GAITHERSBURG, MD–(Marketwire – Oct 22, 2012) – BroadSoft, Inc. (NASDAQ: BSFT) today announced UC One — a comprehensive, open unified communications (UC) platform that combines all of the critical elements a telecommunications service provider requires to ensure rapid delivery of their unified communications solutions to the market segments they serve, including a single end-user interface, full mobility, open APIs and defined market offerings.
A 2012 Infonetics Research survey on enterprise plans for unified communications reveals that when choosing a UC solution, 71% of respondents view mobile device integration as “very important.” The survey adds that complexity has displaced cost as the leading barrier affecting UC deployment, a belief not helped by the fragmented landscape of service providers, as well as communications silos for voice, video, text and collaboration that inhibit employee productivity and mobility.
UC One removes this complexity by providing a single platform for service providers to design and introduce a comprehensive set of communications solutions for the market segments they serve, including microbusinesses, small and medium businesses, and large enterprises.
The UC One Platform integrates four key unified communications components:
“While enterprises have stated a clear desire for service providers to extend their core offering beyond voice, many providers have been challenged by the complexity of trying to pull together multiple communications services into a single, market-ready offering,” said Michael Tessler, president and chief executive officer, BroadSoft. “With UC One, we believe service providers can deliver revenue-generating UC services from a single platform, in turn reimagining how end-users can interact and communicate across all devices and networks — from anywhere and at any time.”
