Network Equipment Technologies Completes Interoperability With BroadSoft's BroadWorks Voice Application Server

BroadWorks Platform Provides Easy Access to Unified Communications, Enabling Service Providers to Deploy Highly Scalable Enterprise VoIP Services as a Single Manageable Service

FREMONT, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 21, 2011) - Network Equipment Technologies, Inc. ("NET") (NASDAQ: NWK) announced today that its VX Series has successfully completed interoperability testing with the BroadSoft® BroadWorks® voice application server.

BroadSoft, Inc. (NASDAQ: BSFT) is the leading global provider of software that enables mobile, fixed-line and cable service providers to deliver real-time communications over their IP networks. The firm's BroadWorks platform delivers a broad range of unified communications (UC) services including video, voice, hosted call center, conferencing, messaging and mobility, for businesses and consumers worldwide.

The integration of NET's VX Series helps service providers offer their enterprise customers secure access solutions for hosted VoIP applications. NET's VX Series gateway and SBC (Session Border Controller) platform enables interconnection of the BroadWorks platform with existing enterprise UC, PBX, fax, and analog devices. The VX Series' "Any-to-Any" signaling can enable connections between BroadSoft SIP-based services and a broad range of PSTN and IP protocols, including SS7/C7 and H.323/SIP inter-working. When combined with BroadWorks, the VX Series will provide scalable, high-performance IPSEC, SRTP & TLS encryption for VoIP communications.

"BroadSoft's work with NET demonstrates our commitment to delivering simple, pre-integrated access solutions for our service provider customers who want to deliver hosted VoIP services," said David Bukovsky, Vice President Products, BroadSoft. "Interoperability for the VX Series enables us to support seamless integration with the products our customers want to take to market."

The BroadWorks platform is designed to support hundreds of millions of subscribers with a carrier-grade level of reliability and over 450 services providers in more than 65 countries have purchased BroadSoft's software. BroadWorks not only offers full network element redundancy -- with no single point of failure -- but it can also be deployed in a geographically redundant configuration.

"BroadWorks interoperability with NET paves the way for offering advanced VoIP services, and is a critical benchmark for our company," said Kevin Isacks, Chief Technology Officer of NET. "Service providers now have the opportunity to offer scalable session border controller and media gateway solutions to enterprises that are interested in leveraging carrier-hosted VoIP cloud services through the integration of NET's VX Series with BroadWorks."
