Telekom Slovenije Rolls Out Advanced Enterprise VoIP Service on BroadSoft

Existing Business Customers Will Migrate to BroadSoft-Based Network

STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN--(Marketwire - June 11, 2007) - VON Europe -- BroadSoft Inc., a leading provider of VoIP application software, announced today at VON Europe 2007 that Telekom Slovenije, the leading telecommunications carrier of Slovenia, has deployed a next-generation voice service for its enterprise customers. The new service offering, called Centreks, is based on BroadSoft's BroadWorks® VoIP application platform, which was supplied by BroadSoft partner Iskratel, a leading Eastern European provider specializing in fixed and mobile communications solutions.

Launched in April, Telekom Slovenije's Centreks will supersede the company's existing Centrex service. The tens of thousands of Centrex end-users are expected to be migrated to the new BroadWorks-based service this year. Iskratel's integrated solution was customized according to Telekom Slovenije's requirements, making it possible for the Slovenian operator to provide its business users with the most advanced IP-telephony services.

The new hosted service is intended to meet the fast-growing demand for business telecommunications services in Slovenia and neighboring markets. Centreks delivers to small, medium and large enterprises a simple-to-use, flexible and feature-rich telephony service. Productivity-enhancing features available through BroadWorks include integration with Microsoft Outlook contact lists and simultaneous ring, which allows an end-user to set all their phones to ring when receiving a call on the desk phone.

"Moving to BroadSoft for our next-generation service offering was an easy decision," said Željko Puljiè, Member of the Management Board of Telekom Slovenije. "We were looking for a platform that was proven with many other Tier-1 players in our market and could be quickly integrated with our network. BroadSoft offered us a solution that allows us to deliver more value to our enterprise customers."

The new Centrek service offering required the complete integration of the IP Centrex into the existing Centrex of Telekom Slovenije.

According to Mitja Jelnikar, Iskratel's Sales and Marketing director, "The solution is completely prepared for a transition to the IMS architecture. Iskratel implemented the solution by using the most recent technology and products. On the basis of many years of experience, we integrated Telekom Slovenije's service into a unified solution that will provide customers with an extensive range of user services."

BroadSoft's BroadWorks platform has been deployed by many of the leading European telecoms operators.

"Telekom Slovenije is proving its dedication to providing its customers with the best telephony services possible by undertaking this major migration effort," said Michael Tessler, president and CEO of BroadSoft. "By choosing to work with BroadSoft and Iskratel, Telekom Slovenije has experienced partners who will assist them in growing their next-generation voice business."

Representatives from Telekom Slovenije and BroadSoft will be available during VON Europe to provide additional details on the IP Centrex and Hosted PBX service. Request a meeting or visit BroadSoft at Booth #C510.
