Enterprise IT vendor Genband on Tuesday introduced Generation Enterprise, a unified communications (UC) solutions framework designed for cloud-based world.
Generation Enterprise solutions are designed to deliver secure communications including voice, HD video, collaboration across multiple devices such as tablets, smartphones, desk phones, PCs and networks like wired and wireless, private and public, TDM and IP, said Genband in a statement.
Generation Enterprise will address the productivity, ease-of-use and collaboration requirements in an increasingly mobile-driven communications economy.
David Walsh, CEO of Genband, said: “Generation Enterprise addresses communications challenges facing many of the world’s largest and most vital organizations by enabling cost-effective, non-disruptive migration of legacy enterprise voice systems to IP.”
For channel and service provider partners, Generation Enterprise enables a rapid go-to-market approach for breakthrough standards like WebRTC with value-added, over-the-Internet applications that are ideal for today’s highly mobile workforce.
Generation Enterprise is an end-to-end solution powered by Genband’s carrier-class EXPERiUS Application Server platform; the QUANTiX portfolio, which offers advanced security, session management and policy control technologies and includes the industry’s most scalable session border controller; the CONTiNUUM gateway family; and NUViA cloud solutions.
Genband claims that Generation Enterprise solutions reduce operational, equipment and other network costs by 20 to 70 percent using advanced session management technology to overlay existing third party environments or through a complete transformation to a Genband-enabled UC solution.
CIOs of large, multi-site enterprises are seeking ways to reduce communications spend by leveraging existing investments in data center infrastructure and IP data networks.
Brian Riggs, principal analyst at Ovum, said: “A unified communications framework that delivers a combination of cloud- and premise-based deployment options will help them both utilize existing IT resources in-house and adopt new cloud-based services from partners.”
