IRVINE, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE) Phoenix Audio Technologies announced today that BroadSoft Inc., a leading global provider of Unified Communications and Collaboration (UCC) services, has successfully completed phone interoperability testing of its SIP conference phone, Spider MT505, with the BroadWorks platform. 

BroadSoft’s BroadWorks Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) applications platform allows service providers to deliver basic and enhanced voice services that cater to businesses and residential end users. BroadWorks enables carriers to offer a wide range of features such as Voice Messaging, Conferencing, Auto Attendant, Selective Call Forwarding, and more. The SIP Spider conference phone supports these features, while offering an easy-to-install, easy-to-use, and high quality audio solution. 

“Completing the interoperability testing of our Spider conference phone with the BroadWorks platform was essential for us,” says Phoenix Audio Technologies VP of Sales, Jonathan Boaz. “We are thrilled about the addition of our award-winning SIP conference phone to the list of BroadSoft-compatible devices. This success gives our clients the confidence and flexibility to take advantage of the full suite of BroadWorks features.” 

The Spider utilizes an extremely powerful DSP and state of the art proprietary algorithms, including noise suppression, echo canceling, de-reverb, and beamforming with direction-finding. Most notably, the SIP conference phone’s dual connectivity, which supports bridging for audio and video calls, and unparalleled daisy chaining option to expand pickup range for any size room, is what sets itself apart in the market. A one-of-a-kind interactive touch button panel and a large display provides a smooth interface experience. Given these innovative elements, there is no question that the Spider is a perfect solution for today’s market needs.

“By completing interoperability testing, business users of Phoenix Audio’s next generation SIP conference phone gain access to a broad range of voice and UCC features that are enabled by the BroadWorks platform,” said Steven Kaish, Vice President, Partner Ecosystem, BroadSoft. “By ensuring BroadWorks and Phoenix Audio phones work together seamlessly, our global customer base of 700 service providers, including 26 of the top 30, are better able to rapidly deliver a broad range of unified communications services to their enterprise customers and consumers.”
