Updated: January 06, 2011

PingTone and BroadSoft, Inc., a worldwide leader of VoIP applications to the telecommunications industry, today announced the addition of the BroadSoft® BroadWorks® VoIP application platform to PingTone's network architecture. In an ongoing effort to maintain the broadest collection of features and services to its operations, PingTone will leverage BroadWorks to introduce new multimedia services, including innovative wireless mobility solutions and further enhancements to its video calling capabilities to business customers.

PingTone has been a leader in providing business class hosted VoIP services with particular emphasis on being the industry leader in reliability, customer service and superior voice quality since it was founded in 1999. The addition of the BroadWorks platform will enable PingTone to continue the rapid growth of its customer base and network while maintaining the focus on these areas of critical importance to businesses.

BroadWorks will work side-by-side and in conjunction with the existing PingTone M6 platform, also provided by BroadSoft. PingTone will continue to operate the M6 platform, including support for all Cisco SCCP (Skinny) customers. The network changes are enhancements and will help round out a product portfolio that is targeted to business customers demanding the benefits derived from a VoIP platform without sacrificing the reliability of their previous phone systems. This expansion maintains PingTone’s carrier-grade interoperability and redundancy, while enhancing the back-office capabilities and network scalability.

"By deploying BroadWorks, PingTone will be able to continue bringing our customers the expanded features and capabilities they require to achieve their business objectives,” PingTone Vice President of Sales and Marketing John Adams said.
