A new global peering program by BroadSoft (News - Alert) is enabling its service provider customers to deliver high-definition (HD) voice and video calling beyond their existing network footprint.
BroadSoft provides software and services that enable mobile, fixed-line and cable service providers to offer Unified Communications (News - Alert) over their Internet Protocol or IP network.
Known as Xtended Connect, the new program has been launched in partnership with on-demand cloud-based communications services provider IntelePeer (News - Alert).
IntelePeer is providing BroadSoft's BroadWorks customers a competitive service offering for this partnership. This offering enables routing of all HD voice and video calls between any two BroadWorks-powered users at no charge.
In addition to delivering more advanced services, this offering will also reduce operational and capital expenditure for the service provider.
"IntelePeer's unique Fluent service extends HD voice and video capabilities to any connected user and simplifies interconnections through our global federations, allowing BroadWorks-enabled customers to provide advanced communication features, a capability no PSTN network can offer," said Frank Fawzi, chairman and CEO, IntelePeer, in a statement.
BroadSoft’s communications platform is leveraged by more than 500 telecommunications service providers and the company expects all of them will gain several benefits from the Xtended Connect program. This program will enable delivery of a superior communications experience, enhance service margins, require no capital costs, and adapt to end-user devices.
“When every BroadSoft service provider customer leverages Xtended Connect, BroadSoft-powered users in more than 70 countries will experience high-definition voice and video calling, creating a truly high-definition network,” said Michael Tessler, president and CEO, BroadSoft.
