BroadSoft Receives 2015 Unified Communications Product of the Year Award

BroadSoft's UC-One Honored for Exceptional Innovation

GAITHERSBURG, MD--(Marketwired - Mar 23, 2015) - BroadSoft, Inc. (NASDAQ: BSFT) today announced that TMC, a global, integrated media company helping clients build communities in print, in person and online, has named BroadSoft's UC-One® offering as a 2015 Unified Communications Product of the Year Award winner.

BroadSoft's UC-One offering is a full unified communications (UC) experience that enables voice, video, business directories, call logs, and instant messaging and presence to be available on a single interface -- regardless of the user's preferred mobile device, type of connectivity (mobile, fixed-line, etc.), or communication service connectivity (hosted or premise-based PBX). With UC-One, enterprises can rapidly shift from premise-based to hosted UC -- and experience the benefits of leveraging the cloud.

"It gives me great pleasure to honor BroadSoft as a 2015 recipient of TMC's Unified Communications Product of the Year Award for their innovative product, UC-One," said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. "Our judges were very impressed with the ingenuity and excellence displayed by BroadSoft in their groundbreaking work on this Unified Communications application."

BroadSoft recently surpassed 10 million hosted unified communications lines deployed -- an industry-leading milestone that demonstrates strong and growing demand for BroadSoft's UC-One application by businesses of all sizes and across North America, Europe, Asia, and other global markets. BroadSoft's hosted UC services -- such as hosted IP PBXs, video calling, unified communications, collaboration and converged mobile and fixed-line services -- are available via the BroadWorks platform or via BroadCloud®, a fully managed end-to-end service.

"We remain focused on developing technologies that reimagine how workers communicate and collaborate, and BroadSoft is thrilled the UC-One offering has been recognized for its innovation," said Mike Wilkinson, vice president, product marketing, BroadSoft. "As a hosted solution, we believe that UC-One stands apart from premise-based offerings by making unified communications simple for service providers to deliver, simple for enterprises to work into their existing IT ecosystem, and simple for users to seamlessly download and use."

Winners of the 2015 Unified Communications Product of the Year Award will be published in the March 2015 edition of INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine.
