BroadSoft Named to 'Pulver 100' for 5th Consecutive Year

Leadership in VoIP Trunking, IMS and Mobile Deployments Earns Ranking Among Top Privately Held IP Communications Companies

GAITHERSBURG, MD and BEVERLY, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 13, 2007 --BroadSoft, Inc., a leading provider of VoIP application software, today announced that it has been named to the 2007 "Pulver 100" -- which is the IP Communications industry's premier listing of privately held growth companies that represent the future of the IP-voice and video communications ecosystem. This is the fifth consecutive year BroadSoft has been named to the list, due to its success in developing leading VoIP applications, such as BroadWorks® Mobile PBX, and for having the most SIP trunking, IMS and mobile deployments globally.

BroadSoft is an industry-leading VoIP application provider. BroadSoft's BroadWorks platform is used by 7 of the world's top 10 telecommunications operators. BroadWorks applications function independently of the underlying network -- extending the service reach and simplifying operations for service providers. Third-party applications, such as presence, are easily integrated with BroadWorks' rich feature set, which allows telecom operators to offer new, differentiated services.

BroadSoft has been named to the Pulver 100 since the award's inception in 2002, when BroadSoft was recognized for its product innovations. Over the years, BroadSoft has been named to the Pulver 100 for the success of its hosted VoIP application -- BroadWorks Hosted PBX; its global expansion; and now its top-ranking in the number of deployments for SIP trunking, mobile, fixed-mobile convergence, and IMS-based services.

"Companies like BroadSoft, via its BroadWorks VoIP platform, are driving the industry's evolution from traditional communications to IP-based communications services. We're proud to name BroadSoft to this year's Pulver 100," said Jeff Pulver, founder and chairman of Pulvermedia. "The Pulver 100 is the IP Communications industry's first and foremost award listing."

"At BroadSoft, each year we strive to surpass our previous year's performance in terms of product development and execution of our strategic objectives. Being named to the Pulver 100 is the industry's recognition of our efforts to provide the best VoIP applications to service providers and build an ecosystem that guarantees their success in delivering IP-based communications services," said Scott Wharton, vice president of Marketing for BroadSoft. "This honor shows that our customers and partners believe in BroadSoft, our products and our services."

BroadSoft will exhibit at Spring VON from March 19 - 22 at the San Jose Convention Center. Stop by the demo station in Booth #1227 for strategies on improving time to market, selling more services to SMBs, and increasing revenues per user.
