announces its involvement in the industry's first smartphone to smartphone VoIP call by mobile communications provider TerreStar Networks. On July 20, TerreStar announced the completion of an end-to-end VoIP call over TerreStar-1, the world's largest, most advanced commercial communications satellite. BroadSoft's VoIP application platform, BroadWorks, was used to route the call over TerreStar's all-IP core network.
TerreStar Networks has selected BroadWorks to power its new mobile broadband network service, which is expected to launch later this year. TerreStar's satellite terrestrial mobile network will provide voice, data and video services to help solve critical communication and business continuity challenges faced by government and emergency responders. The service also will be marketed to rural communities and enterprises that need "anywhere" coverage throughout the United States and Canada.
