GENBAND Unveils ‘Making Networks Smarter’ Vision and Solutions from the Core to the Edge to the Experience

GENBAND, a leading developer of IMS and cloud communications solutions, today announced its Making Networks Smarter vision and solutions for service providers, channel partners and the enterprise and consumer markets they serve. This initiative marks the continued evolution of GENBAND’s market-leading portfolio under three strategic solution pillars that enable a SMART CORE, SMART EDGE and SMART EXPERIENCE for its customers.

“GENBAND’s growth has been built around close and continual interaction with our customers, and fueled by technologies developed to solve critical business challenges and redefine the user experience for the 21st century at work, home and on-the-go,” said Charlie Vogt, President and CEO of GENBAND. “As service providers relentlessly work to meet market challenges, they require smarter networks with software, solutions and intelligence that span multiple technology and compatibility chasms at the core, edges and application layers of networks. Today, we are unveiling our ‘Making Networks Smarter’ vision and solution innovations in IMS, RCS, VoLTE, Interconnect, SIP Trunking and Multimedia Communications. These solutions are required by our customers to deliver superior user experiences that make their networks and service offerings more secure, scalable, efficient and profitable.”

“Even the most sophisticated service providers are being challenged with a new wave of competition, shifting market dynamics and the ever-increasing demands of both consumers and enterprises,” said Jeremy Duke, Chief Analyst & Founder, Synergy Research Group. “It is not about selling boxes anymore, but rather providing a flexible and rich software architecture that allows clients to meet the challenges and demands of carrier-scale multimedia. GENBAND’s Smart Networks solutions provide a unique and exciting set of resources to enable service providers and enterprises to drive cloud-based and IP solutions to their customers.”

IMS Solutions

As networks increasingly migrate to IP, the network core must often accommodate a disparate array of technologies to ensure a smooth, seamless and satisfying communications experience. GENBAND’s SMART CORE™ solutions deliver RCS, VoLTE and IMS features and functionality for mobile and fixed network operators, allowing them to monetize services while preserving much of their existing access equipment and offerings. GENBAND’s SMART CORE solutions are enabled by the CONTiNUUM™ family of market-leading IMS, Call Session Controllers and Gateway solutions.

SBC Solutions

The network edge is the new nexus for communications – the place where networks meet and all traffic is exchanged, the focal point for substantial service and competitive differentiation, and also the location for the largest security threats.

GENBAND’s SMART EDGE solutions simplify the complexities in unifying disparate communication islands by enabling interconnection, inter-working, roaming and enhanced quality of experience across all varieties of real-time, interactive data communications. Enabling advanced capabilities for SIP Trunking, IPX and Peering, Smart Edge solutions are supported by GENBAND’s QUANTiX™ product family, which includes market-leading Session Border Controllers, Security Gateways and the GENView Real-time Session Manager.

Unified Communications Solutions

Business and consumer end users are challenged by the increasing complexity of communications and are demanding intelligent solutions that provide a simple, consistent and rich communications experience.

GENBAND’s SMART EXPERIENCE solutions provide comprehensive unified multimedia communications, mobility, conferencing and messaging for business and residential markets. These solutions allows service providers and other communications providers to expand their offerings, reduce subscriber churn, tap new sources of revenue and provide a rich, simplified communications experience. EXPERiUS™, which encompasses GENBAND’s market-leading applications portfolio, also includes SMART OFFICE, SMART HOME and SMART LIFE solutions, as well as the company’s software-based, cloud-ready SIP application server. The EXPERiUS family includes fully integrated multimedia communications functionality for business and residential users, Rich Communications Suite (RCS) Services and VoLTE Services.

CLOUD, UC and RCS Solutions

Optimizing the advantages of cloud economics and business models, GENBAND today unveiled NUViA™ to deliver a comprehensive suite of white-label, cloud-based multimedia communications services that fixed and mobile service providers and channel partners can brand and take to market. Powered by EXPERiUS, NUViA provides a pay-as-you-go, Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) platform for the delivery of differentiated UC and RCS services for the enterprise, small and medium business, and consumer market segments.

Underpinning the GENBAND NUViA cloud service is GENBAND’s global professional services organization, which has a rich history of service solutions that help service providers and enterprises grow revenues, reduce costs and improve productivity.

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
