GENBAND Intros Generation Enterprise UC Solutions Framework


January 28, 2014

It is the era of mobile-driven communications solutions. Even though many enterprises have embraced Unified Communications (UC) solutions, it is unfortunate that enterprises are continually facing challenges with regard to mobile-driven communications solutions, including difficulty in migration of legacy enterprise voice systems to Internet protocol (IP) solutions, in this digital age.

In an effort to instigate cost-effective and non-disruptive IP migration from proprietary, hardware-dependent systems, GENBAND, a developer of multimedia and cloud communications solutions, has launched a new transformative unified communications (UC) solutions framework, called as Generation Enterprise.

Tailor-made for the flourishing mobile and cloud-based world, the new Generation Enterprise solutions suite can provide secure voice and high definition (HD) video communications across multiple devices and networks, such as wired and wireless, private and public, time division multiplexing (TDM) and IP. Specifically, the Generation Enterprise delivers a differentiated UC framework through a rich set of APIs.

The company said that its Generation Enterprise framework provides flexible, software-based deployment options for enterprises, governments and universities, whether on premise, in the cloud, or as a hybrid or hosted solution.

Empowered by the industry’s first WebRTC-enabled UC platform, SMART OFFICE 2.0, the new Generation Enterprise solutions suite is also powered by the company’s carrier-class EXPERiUS Application Server platform; the QUANTiX portfolio that provides advanced security, session management and policy control technologies and a scalable session border controller; the high-density CONTiNUUM gateway family; and NUViA cloud solutions.

The EXPERiUS platform facilitates businesses to centralize common dialing plans across mixed PBX environments. It also enables fixed-mobile integration on premises or via GENBAND’s cloud-based NUVIA solution.

David Walsh, CEO of GENBAND, said in a statement, “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 our 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.”

According to Jon Jorgl, president of enterprise solutions for GENBAND, many communications solutions suite available in the market do not offer the flexible, long-term roadmap for integrating UC capabilities into existing platforms that large enterprises are increasingly seeking.

With Generation Enterprise, enterprises seeking easy migration to UC with vendor endpoint flexibility will be able to realize it through GENBAND’s EXPERiUS platform or from the company’s NUViA cloud service.

Jorgl added, “By creating a premium cloud-based user experience, whether in the office, at home or on the road, our customers can effectively remove the chains to the desk. 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.”
