Auckland, New Zealand, May 15, 2018 -- New Zealand carrier Spark has announced that it is deploying BroadSoft's unified communications (UC) suite in an effort to target the small and medium-sized business (SMB) market.
The telco's Spark Cloud Phone offering will be powered by the BroadCloud platform, providing SMB customers with collaboration solutions across voice, mobile, computing devices, instant messaging and presence, desktop and file sharing, virtual meeting rooms, and video conferencing.

"Spark has outstanding reach in the New Zealand market and a world-class engineering team behind the new Spark Cloud Phone product line," Reid added.
In October, Australian retail and wholesale voice-over-IP (VoIP) provider MNF Group announced a partnership with BroadSoft to deliver MyNetFone UCaaS voice and collaboration services on BroadCloud to its subsidiary Symbio Networks for enterprise customers across both Australia and New Zealand.
At the time, Reid had said the deal would help the acceleration of uptake for cloud-based unified communications services throughout Australia and New Zealand.
This followed Optus Wholesale unveiling a UCaaS solution for service providers in partnership with BroadSoft in September, with its Cloud-UCX solution enabling its wholesale customers to build and whitelabel UC products, after announcing its partnership with BroadSoft with the introduction of Optus Loop back in May.
