BroadSoft and AudioCodes CEOs to Introduce One Voice for Hosted Services in 
Frankfurt on 19 February 2014 
Program Simplifies Services Deployment and Reduces Enterprise Total
Cost of Ownership While Accelerating Service Provider Revenue 
LOD, ISRAEL and GAITHERSBURG, MD -- (Marketwired) -- 02/10/14 -- 
AudioCodes (NASDAQ: AUDC), a leading provider of converged voice
solutions that enable enterprises and service providers to transition
to all-IP voice networks, and BroadSoft, Inc. (NASDAQ: BSFT), the
leading global provider of software that enables mobile, fixed-line
and cable service providers to deliver real-time communications over
their IP networks, today announced that the two companies are
collaborating on One Voice for Hosted Services, a program designed to
help service providers accelerate time to revenue for their hosted
communications services. 
One Voice for Hosted Services combines the power of BroadSoft's
unified communications services with AudioCodes' innovative IP
phones, SMB routers, SBCs, ATAs and Gateways to provide an
integrated, zero touch provisioning, low total cost of ownership
(TCO) option for enterprise customers. This single platform addresses
the needs of all business types. 
BroadSoft's Chief Executive Officer, Michael Tessler, and AudioCodes
Chief Executive Officer, Shabtai Adlersberg, together will introduce
the benefits of One Voice for Hosted Services at the Skyloft Sheraton
Airport hotel in Frankfurt, Germany on 19 February 2014. During the
event, they will share their views on the competitive enterprise
communication landscape and how this new program can provide greater
value and accelerate the growth of a service provider's hosted
unified communications offers.  
"We are committed to continuing to innovate on behalf of our service
provider customers to ensure the rapid adoption of their hosted
unified communications services," said Michael Tessler, chief
executive officer, BroadSoft. "We are excited to extend our
collaboration with AudioCodes to offer a comprehensive, cost
effective solution that will enable our customers to meet the needs
of their enterprise customers, while speeding their time to revenue." 
"After many years of successful cooperation with BroadSoft, we are
very pleased to take our relationship to the next level with the One
Voice for Hosted Services program," said Shabtai Adlersberg, CEO of
AudioCodes. "AudioCodes prides itself in having the most
interoperable platforms on the market and a complete suite of
connectivity solutions - from IP Phones and Gateways, to SMB routers
and Session Border Controllers. This allows us to package a 'One
Voice' offering that removes the complexity of multiple vendors and
reduces TCO, making it highly attractive for BroadSoft's customers."  
"In today's increasingly competitive environment and facing
challenges from so-called Over-the-Top (OTT) applications impacting
their businesses, service providers need to respond by bringing their
own disruptive solutions to the market," said Dean Bubley, Founder
and Director of Disruptive Analysis, who will be presenting a keynote
address at the joint kickoff event in Frankfurt. "Service providers
need to find and exploit new revenue sources, despite the emerging
profile of Internet players. Approaches such as the collaboration
between BroadSoft and AudioCodes push towards removing complexity,
reducing TCO and enabling service providers to bring new services
into the market faster and easier -- or even in an OTT model
themselves."
