SaskTel selects BroadSoft for VoLTE, other all-IP services

8 Oct 2013

Canadian full-service telco SaskTel has selected US-based BroadSoft’s BroadWorks Telephony Application Server to support fixed and mobile all-IP services for business and consumer customers, as well as voice-over-LTE (VoLTE) and unified communications (UC) business services for SaskTel’s mobile subscribers when roaming nationwide. ‘The capability to deploy a single IMS architecture for delivering VoLTE and other services for both our wireless and wireline customers was a key determining factor in our selection of BroadSoft’s technology,’ said Daryl Godfrey, chief technology officer at the Saskatchewan-based telco, who added: ‘This flexibility will enable us to create and deliver new applications and services that can be highly targeted to meet the demand of both our enterprise and consumer customers.’

Michael Tessler, CEO of BroadSoft, added: ‘SaskTel’s business and consumer customers across Saskatchewan, and those customers that roam with their mobile devices across all Canadian provinces, will soon enjoy an even greater selection of the converged services and applications they are clamouring for, including video calling and conferencing, instant messaging, presence and web collaboration.’
