November 23, 2011

Successful interoperability testing with the BroadSoft BroadWorks voice application server has been completed by Network Equipment Technologies (NET)’s VX Series. An announcement in this regard has been made by the provider of high performance networking equipment optimized for real-time communications, NET.

Mobile, fixed-line and cable service providers are able to deliver real-time communications over their IP networks with BroadSoft Inc. A broad range of unified communications or UC services are delivered by the firm’s BroadWorks platform. These include video, voice, hosted call center, conferencing, messaging and mobility, for businesses and consumers worldwide.

Service providers are able to offer their enterprise customers secure access solutions for hosted VoIP applications due to the integration of NET’s VX series. Interconnection of the BroadWorks platform with existing enterprise UC, PBX, fax, and analog devices are enabled with NET's VX Series gateway and SBC or Session Border Controller platform. Connections between BroadSoft SIP-based services and a broad range of PSTN and IP protocols are also enabled with the VX Series' "Any-to-Any" signaling. Scalable, high-performance IPSEC, SRTP & TLS encryption for VoIP communications can be also provided by the VX series when combined with BroadWorks.

In a release, David Bukovsky, VP for Products at BroadSoft, said, "BroadSoft's work with NET demonstrates our commitment to delivering simple, pre-integrated access solutions for our service provider customers who want to deliver hosted VoIP services. Interoperability for the VX Series enables us to support seamless integration with the products our customers want to take to market."

Hundreds of millions of subscribers with a carrier-grade level of reliability are supported by the BroadWorks platform. BroadSoft's software has been purchased by more than 450 services providers in over 65 countries. Full network element redundancy is also offered by BroadWorks.

Kevin Isacks, CTO of NET, said, "BroadWorks interoperability with NET paves the way for offering advanced VoIP services, and is a critical benchmark for our company. Service providers now have the opportunity to offer scalable session border controller and media gateway solutions to enterprises that are interested in leveraging carrier-hosted VoIP cloud services through the integration of NET's VX Series with BroadWorks."
