BroadSoft, Inc. and OpenPeak, Inc. today announced they have integrated their unique capabilities to power the industry’s first Dual Persona for UC, providing users secure access to all of their unified communications services, including voice and video calling, text messaging, instant messaging and presence, and corporate directories.

Dual Persona for UC integrates BroadSoft’s UC-One® platform, which includes BroadWorks® -- the only VoLTE compliant Business Telephony Application Server with the broad-range of unified communications services businesses are seeking, with OpenPeak’s SECTOR® – a secure container that provides users access to all of their UC services and encrypted enterprise data while logged on to the password protected “work side” of their device. Users can seamlessly switch between their business and personal communication services on a single mobile device, with complete privacy and security.

“With a growing dependency on smartphones, individuals expect access to all of their applications, including their unified communications services, from a single mobile device,” said Scott Hoffpauir, chief technology officer, BroadSoft. “Integrating our broad-range of unified communications services with OpenPeak’s secure ‘device within a device’ containerized environment delivers on the growing Bring Your Own Device trend, freeing individuals to use their preferred personal device to work from anywhere, while providing their employer with confidence their enterprise information is secure.”

The benefits of Dual Persona for UC extend beyond employees and the enterprise, providing unique advantages for mobile operators seeking to meet the evolving communications requirements of the mobile workforce:
