AGNITY Announces Interoperability of Its SPIDYR™ Web Phone With BroadSoft's BroadWorks Platform

SPIDYR Web Phone Ready-Made for Carrier-Branded, Online Voice and Video Services Is Now Interoperable With Broadworks, the World's Leading VoIP Application Platform

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - October 26, 2009) - BroadSoft Connections 2009 -- AGNITY, Inc., a leading provider of applications, solutions and services for mobile and fixed line service providers, announced today at the BroadSoft Connections 2009 conference the availability of the ACONYX™ SPIDYR™ Phone, a Web-based multimedia calling application, which interoperates with BroadSoft's BroadWorks® VoIP application platform.

With the SPIDYR Web Phone, service providers can offer business and residential subscribers a convenient and cost effective, Web-based voice and video calling service with no equipment to purchase or support.

This software-as-a-service (SaaS) approach, which supports both SIP and IMS network deployments, significantly reduces operational expense for the service provider and enables carriers to strategically compete with Skype-type services by providing a Web-based voice portal with exceptional quality of service and a branded, service-provider experience. The application delivers high availability and is scalable to support millions of subscribers. In addition, the SPIDYR Web Phone includes optional features such as audio and video conferencing, as well as advertisement and content insertion capabilities, thus opening up new streams of revenue for service providers.

The availability of the SPIDYR Web Phone expands AGNITY's relationship with BroadSoft® beyond the existing suite of products that includes ACONYX Prepaid and AGNITY's SIPr Test Framework, a SIP and IMS-based feature testing solution for the BroadWorks platform.

"In working with AGNITY, we have found a true next-generation applications partner," said David Bukovsky, vice president of products at BroadSoft. "The SPIDYR Web Phone is an innovative application that enables service providers to generate new revenue and deliver a superior experience to their customers."

"SPIDYR Web Phone demonstrates AGNITY's commitment to continuous innovation in Advanced Applications space. We are pleased to partner with BroadSoft to provide a pre-integrated BroadWorks - SPIDYR Phone solution to our customers," said AGNITY CEO Sanjeev Chawla. "As we move forward, we will continue to develop and deliver easy-to-deploy applications that will serve BroadSoft and their customers well, creating revenue generating opportunities throughout the supply chain."

Developed using AGNITY's carrier-grade ACONYX components, the SPIDYR Web Phone is an open solution with standards-based protocols and APIs for rapid system integration with application servers, Web 2.0 applications and existing services. The turnkey solution is provided with a carrier-branded Web phone interface and customizable Web portal to suit the customer's requirements.
