BroadSoft Named VoIP Market Leader by Leading Analyst Firm

Designation Recognizes Incumbent Telecom Customers, Wide-Reaching Ecosystem for the BroadWorks Platform

GAITHERSBURG, MD--(Marketwire - July 9, 2007) - BroadSoft, Inc., a leading provider of VoIP application software, today announced that it has been named the market leader for voice applications servers by research firm IDC.

In its report "Worldwide Voice Application Servers 2006 Market Share Update," (Doc #207356, July 2007) IDC identified BroadSoft and its award-winning BroadWorks® platform as the market leader in 2006. The research was published as part of IDC's continuous intelligence services that provide written research, analyst interactions, telebriefings, and conferences.

"BroadSoft was the leading supplier and in general has enjoyed the best success in terms of geographic reach, penetration of Tier 1 service providers, and strategic partnerships with Tier 1 NEPs (network equipment providers)," stated Thomas Valovic, program director of VoIP Infrastructure for IDC and author of the report.

The IDC report projected that BroadSoft holds a 25 percent share of the worldwide voice application server market based on estimated 2006 revenues. The market leader declaration follows Deloitte's ranking of BroadSoft in the top 100 of its "2006 Technology Fast 500" in North America.

"Everyone at BroadSoft has worked tirelessly to reach and retain our leadership position, and it shows in our numbers. BroadSoft counts five of the top six telecom equipment providers as resellers, more than 40 incumbents as customers, and nearly 30 IMS deployments worldwide."
