Sprint is the only one that integrates with a softswitch to turn mobile 
handsets into extensions.

Everyone thinks that it is easy to spin up a softswitch and start 
offering Hosted UC. There are so freaking many components that have to 
be stitched together.

You can stitch together a BSFT replacement but the question will be: 
does it scale and is it stable? That question all depends on quantity, 
volume, usage, etc.

That said, you should survey your current customer base to see what they 
need. It might not be unified messaging (chat, SMS, etc. in one 
interface).  It might be software integration. It might be that most of 
your customers just want key system emulation.
