CloudTC Announces Interoperability of CloudTC Glass 1000 with BroadSoft's Voice Application Server

August 03, 2011

CloudTC, a software provider for business applications and IP telephony, announced interoperability of the CloudTC Glass 1000, an IP phone, with BroadSoft's BroadWorks voice application server.

A global software provider, BroadSoft enables mobile, fixed-line and cable service providers to offer real-time communications over their IP networks.

BroadSoft's BroadWorks platform offers unified communications services including video, voice, hosted call center, conferencing, messaging and mobility, for businesses and consumers.

The Android-based CloudTC Glass 1000 IP phone already achieved interoperability with many infrastructure vendors representing over 50 percent of the IP communications marketplace.

“Today's announcement is yet another proof point of the increasing momentum of Glass, the first truly smart IP phone,” said Cheryln Chin, vice president of Marketing at CloudTC, in a statement. “BroadSoft service provider customers can now enjoy all the rich enterprise telephony capabilities they enjoy on the BroadWorks platform, combined with the Smartphone-like functionality and flexibility of the Glass phone.”

Currently, CloudTC’s mass-produced phones are available to customers in Europe, Asia, and North America. Infrastructure vendors, OEMs, systems integrators, and VoIP service providers have used Glass because of the benefits such as less time to market, lower investment in R&D, and ability to customize phone features as well as application suites for business users.

“We believe there is growing demand for Android-based OS phones, and the demonstrated interoperability of the CloudTC Glass 1000 IP phone with BroadWorks presents service providers with a wider choice of access devices for deploying services based on BroadSoft's BroadWorks platform,” said David Bukovsky, vice president of Products at BroadSoft.

Recently, wholesale hosted telephony platform provider thevoicefactory said that with its live MVNO and BroadSoft Hosted Platform it can offer PBX features across mobile and fixed phone.
