MOSCOW, Russia, Jan. 23, 2013 – SPIRIT DSP, the world’s #1 voice and video over IP engines provider serving more than 1 billion users in 100+ countries, announced today that BroadSoft, Inc. (NASDAQ: BSFT), the leading global provider of software and services that enables mobile, fixed-line and cable service providers to deliver unified communications and other voice and multimedia services over their IP- based networks, has licensed TeamSpirit® Voice&Video Engine Mobile and PC to provide HD-quality voice and video calls in its BroadTouch™ user application.
BroadTouch Business Communicator brings together voice, video, instant messaging and presence, on a single interface that spans mobile and desktop platforms, including Windows, Mac, iOS and Android. BroadTouch harnesses the power of the BroadWorks® application platform and BroadCloud™, the firm’s cloud-based service delivery platform, and extends these innovative communication services directly to the end-user. Before the agreement with SPIRIT DSP, Broadsoft used Google’s voice engine.
BroadSoft has over 500 telecommunications service provider customers in more than 65 countries, including 20 of the top 25 service providers globally, as measured by revenue.
“We are dedicated to ensuring our global telecommunications service provider customers provide a superior communication experience to their users,” said Scott Hoffpauir, chief technology officer, BroadSoft. “We believe SPIRIT’s capabilities will help us power HD voice and video calling that will radically change the communication experience.”
“BroadSoft is the global leader in the IP communications space for carriers. We believe SPIRIT’s global agreement with BroadSoft underscores the growing demand from telecommunications providers around the world to offer HD voice and video communications as part of their service package in an effort to retain and gain new subscribers and reduce churn to OTT players,” said Andrew Sviridenko, chairman of SPIRIT. “With the help of our global partners, SPIRIT engines are the only real alternative to OTT VoIP-products of Google, Skype and Microsoft. SPIRIT engines give carriers a reliable way to rapidly roll-out their own-branded high quality VVoIP communications products.”
