“For years businesses relied on expensive premise systems - not because they were the best choice, but because they were often the only choice,” said Taher Behbehani, chief digital and marketing officer, BroadSoft. “But today it is absolutely clear that premise is dead, and businesses choose the cloud to stay competitive. BroadSoft is the cloud UC global market share leader with the portfolio, scalability and trusted track record that enables businesses to move to the cloud, and fully realize the communication and collaboration benefits the cloud delivers.”

BroadSoft Business recently surpassed 15 million cloud UC lines deployed globally – an industry leading milestone that is 3x greater than the next closest competitor Cisco and 10x greater than RingCentral. In addition to Cloud PBX, SIP Trunking and advanced mobility, BroadSoft Business offers an advanced portfolio of services, including:

  • UC-One – A Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) contextual collaboration suite with integrated HD audio and video, messaging, screen sharing, file sharing, and conferencing, available on pc, browser, tablet and mobile phone.
