Ensim Unify and BroadSoft BroadWorks Provide Framework for New Zealand Provider’s Current and Future Converged Services

Sunnyvale, California -- November 27, 2006 – Ensim, the leading supplier of service activation and automation software for hosted IP and application services, today announced that WorldxChange Communications Limited, a leading provider of IP telecommunications services in New Zealand, has successfully deployed Ensim Unify to activate and manage its hosted VoIP services for business and residential customers.

WorldxChange, one of New Zealand’s largest providers of long-distance services, has become the first true fully converged IP carrier in the country by investing in carrier-grade IP core hardware and systems. As part of this strategy, WorldxChange chose to deploy the Ensim Unify VoIP solution over BroadSoft's BroadWorks® hosted communications platform to automate and manage its VoIP service delivery processes..

Ensim’s Unify is pre-integrated with BroadSoft’s BroadWorks softswitch, along with a dozen additional unified communications applications, allowing service providers to quickly and easily launch a complete platform. The companies’ combined solution offers enhanced capabilities to automate network provisioning and integrate with existing OSS applications to rapidly introduce, deliver and manage VoIP services.

WorldxChange selected Ensim Unify not only for its automated provisioning capabilities, but for its unique extensibility. With fifteen pre-configured service managers for popular unified communications applications, such as Microsoft Exchange 2003, Windows SharePoint Services, Live Communication Server, and Faxing and Mobile Messaging, Ensim Unify enables the simple creation and delivery of additional high-value revenue-generating service bundles.

Another key feature that Ensim Unify brings to WorldxChange is its Devices Service Manager, which allows WorldxChange to configure any type of customers’ SIP phones and other VoIP devices.

“Ensim has enabled us to significantly improve our productivity while ensuring that we have a platform that will serve us in the future,” said Phillip Moore, WorldxChange NZ Ltd Network Operations Manager. “It is the only solution that delivers the automation and integration capabilities with the extensibility that are key to succeeding in this market.”
