MOSCOW -- January 23, 2013

SPIRIT DSP, the world's #1 voice and video over IP engines provider serving
more than 1 billion users in 100+ countries, announced today that BroadSoft,
Inc. (NASDAQ: BSFT), the leading global provider of software and services that
enables mobile, fixed-line and cable service providers to deliver unified
communications and other voice and multimedia services over their IP- based
networks, has licensed TeamSpirit® Voice&Video Engine Mobile and PC to provide
HD-quality voice and video calls in its BroadTouch™ user application.

BroadTouch Business Communicator brings together voice, video, instant
messaging and presence, on a single interface that spans mobile and desktop
platforms, including Windows, Mac, iOS and Android. BroadTouch harnesses the
power of the BroadWorks® application platform and BroadCloud™, the firm's
cloud-based service delivery platform, and extends these innovative
communication services directly to the end-user. Before the agreement with
SPIRIT DSP, BroadSoft used Google's voice engine.

BroadSoft has over 500 telecommunications service provider customers in more
than 65 countries, including 20 of the top 25 service providers globally, as
measured by revenue.

“We are dedicated to ensuring our global telecommunications service provider
customers provide a superior communication experience to their users,” said
Scott Hoffpauir, chief technology officer, BroadSoft. “We believe SPIRIT’s
capabilities will help us power HD voice and video calling that will radically
change the communication experience.”

"BroadSoft is the global leader in the IP communications space for carriers.
We believe SPIRIT’s global agreement with BroadSoft underscores the growing
demand from telecommunications providers around the world to offer HD voice
and video communications as part of their service package in an effort to
retain and gain new subscribers and reduce churn to OTT players," said Andrew
Sviridenko, chairman of SPIRIT. "With the help of our global partners, SPIRIT
engines are the only real alternative to OTT VoIP-products of Google, Skype
and Microsoft. SPIRIT engines give carriers a reliable way to rapidly roll-out
their own-branded high quality VVoIP communications products."
