GENBAND and Samsung Enter into Agreement to Deliver Enhanced UC Solutions

February 20, 2013

GENBAND and Samsung Telecommunications America have entered into an agreement to deliver enhanced unified communications (UC) solutions. As per the agreement, Samsung Mobile will integrate its SAFE designated devices with GENBAND's SMART OFFICE mobile UC applications. SAFE is part of Samsung’s family of enterprise solutions which include the necessary security and feature enhancements.

With this integration, the duo is creating unique mobile solutions that enhance the standard office communications environment. The solution delivers voice, data, video communications and collaboration capabilities on Samsung SAFE devices to fully mobile-enable the enterprise market. The multimedia and cloud communications solutions developer is also planning to offer Samsung Mobile devices through its service provider customers and large systems integrator partners.

Tim Wagner, vice president and general manager, Enterprise Sales at Samsung Mobile, said in a statement, “This alliance with GENBAND brings powerful new communications capabilities to the enterprise, fortifying today's mobile workforce with unprecedented on-the-go productivity. Our SAFE solution, which enhances security for enterprise devices, combined with GENBAND's industry leading UC software and service provider expertise, offers enterprise customers a holistic, innovative and cost-effective desk phone complement or replacement solution that will allow employees to carry their communications environment with them, whether inside or outside of the office.”

Sam Waicberg, chief marketing officer at GENBAND added, “Enterprise communications are quickly evolving to include mobile devices and the cloud, yet services are not integrated, making enterprises primed for the next wave of disruptive, innovative mobile UC technologies. Our relationship with Samsung, complemented by our SMART multimedia portfolio and partner ecosystem, clearly differentiates this solution from competitive offerings by simplifying and enhancing the enterprise user experience. Our vision is consistent with the vision of many CIO's - a mobile tablet as the primary voice and multimedia communications device bundled with a carrier grade, cloud-based UC service.”
