— BroadSoft, Inc. (NASDAQ: BSFT) today announced that O1 Communications, a leading California VoIP telecommunications company, will leverage BroadCloud®, BroadSoft’s fully-managed hosted service, to power its O1 Phone VoiceStream hosted PBX and Unified Communications (UC) offering.
Prior to the sale of its retail division in 2010, O1 Communications utilized the BroadWorks® platform to deliver hosted PBX and SIP Trunk services to small business and mid-market customers. As the company prepared for its entry back into the enterprise market in 2015, O1 sought a cloud-based solution that can extend beyond voice to meet growing business demand across all market segments for innovative Unified Communications services and business phone solutions. BroadCloud offers a robust, bundled UC solution, along with an intuitive, self-service web portal, to provide O1 customers a superior user experience and to simplify management and delivery of the VoiceStream product.
“Forward-thinking service providers such as O1 Communications are increasingly looking to rapidly and easily customize and take to market voice and UC services that meet the diverse communications needs of their business customers,” said Josh Holmberg, vice president, sales, BroadSoft. “With BroadCloud powering its compelling VoiceStream cloud offering, O1 Communications is strongly positioned with an affordable, easy-to-use, and feature-rich solution.”
VoiceStream is a powerful, yet simple to manage cloud PBX and integrated unified communications offering. The solution includes BroadSoft UC-One® — a full unified communications experience that enhances productivity for the increasingly mobile workforce by making voice, video, business directories, call logs, instant messaging and presence available on a single application. Additionally, O1 can ensure the highest quality of service across the network through BroadSoft’s cloud-based quality of service (QoS) management tools.
“We are pleased to extend our long-term relationship with BroadSoft and to collaborate with them to provide the benefits of BroadCloud’s comprehensive unified communication services,” adds Max Seely, Senior Vice President, O1 Communications. “We now have a packaged, turnkey solution to take our VoiceStream product to market and to support the rapid transition of today’s businesses to cloud communications, a mobilized workforce, and customizable UC solutions.”
