Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is a technology that allows users to make voice calls using an Internet connection. Yealink (News - Alert), a provider of VoIP and IP phones, is committed to providing innovative IP phones that have high quality, easy deployment, rapid technical support and broad interoperability. These benefits provide significant cost savings and increased revenue to users of Yealink products across the globe, particularly when coupled with world-class software solutions from BroadSoft (News - Alert), an innovator of VoIP applications.
Since seamlessly completing its interoperability and compatibility testing with BroadSoft in 2010, Yealink has increased its technical and marketing partnership efforts with the global BroadSoft team in order to drive increased end-user satisfaction with a total VoIP solution. For more than a decade, BroadSoft has focused on providing the most innovative, real-time multimedia communications services in the telecom industry via voice, video and unified communications over broadband and IP-based networks.
Today, Yealink provides a one-stop answer for VoIP terminals, ranging from basic desk telephones to executive videophone consoles.
In the two years since achieving interoperability, BroadSoft and Yealink have partnered together on projects with T-Mobile, Telefonica (News - Alert), KPN and other major providers of VoIP, hosted PBX and business services around the globe. Close cooperation between the two technical teams have made sure that each BroadSoft release is fully supported by Yealink terminals.
Market forces and user behavior have dramatically changed how networks are utilized. Changes ranging from cloud-based communications services, mobile devices and the convergence of video, voice and presence have created a tremendous opportunity for Yealink and BroadSoft to partner on future projects.
Earlier this year, Yealink’s IP video phone, VP530, successfully passed the interoperability test with BroadSoft, proving that Yealink IP phones work properly with the BroadWorks SIP interface.
The VP530 is unified with audio, video and other applications. Its features include local three-way video conferencing, phonebook solution and three-touch dial. The video conferencing does not require any extra network resources, insuring smooth and HD business conferencing experience under normal network environment. It’s highly customizable and expandable and easy to deploy and manage.
