The two companies plan to collaborate to customize and integrate VMAS to BroadSoft’s BroadWorks and BroadCloud platforms. They say that will create a Unified Communications (UC) client that delivers instant messaging, presence, audio and video that can be accessed from PCs, smartphones and tablets. The VMAS for BroadWorks solution, offered to BroadSoft’s service-provider customers, also incorporates AudioCodes Client Management System (CMS) for centralized and secured distribution, authentication and policy enforcement of VMAS clients.
“Enterprise mobility is an important pillar of on-premise and hosted UC solutions, which increases efficiency while reducing costs,” said Sharone Ben-Levi, vice president of marketing for North America, AudioCodes. Using the seamless integration of VMAS with BroadSoft’s BroadWorks server, hosted service providers can now offer additional value to their business customers including enhanced UC and VoIP experiences over PCs, smartphones and tablets.”
“With AudioCodes VMAS for BroadWorks solution, we believe our customers will be able to meet the growing demand for new applications and services for their mobile devices,” said David Bukovsky, vice president of products, BroadSoft.
The two companies have collaborated previously. As a BroadSoft Premium Access Solution Partner, AudioCodes has developed advanced product offerings for the BroadSoft hosted VoIP solutions, including a broad range of media gateways, enterprise session-border controllers and multi-service business gateways that can simplify deployments and management of BroadSoft’s hosted VoIP service solutions.
AudioCodes will demonstrate the VMAS BroadSoft solution at the BroadSoft Connections 2011: Crush It! event next week in Phoenix.
