GENBAND, a leading developer of IP infrastructure and application solutions, has recently announced that it will be participating in the 2011 Mobile World Congress from February 14 through February 17, 2011 at Barcelona, Spain, and will launch the GENBAND (News - Alert) Mobile Office system. The GENBAND Mobile Office is an all-mobile corporate phone system which has been designed for the small business market.
Also, other GENBAND solutions such as GENBAND Mobile Voice VPN, a SIP business trunking solution that connects enterprise customers directly into the mobile service provider's network core, will be launched. GENBAND Mobile Voice VPN enables mobile service providers to provide a more direct and seamless service to the enterprise market which eliminates the need for mobile operators to rely on expensive leased PRI trunks from fixed line operators.
GENBAND will be showcasing Mobile Office applications that have been powered by the GENBAND A2 Converged Application Server which operates at the mobile core to provide small businesses all the features available on a regular PBX (News - Alert), such as auto attendant console and presence based routing functionality.
In a release, Micaela Giuhat (News - Alert), vice president of product marketing at GENBAND said that, “Enterprise voice functionality and connectivity have largely been the domain of the fixed-line operators. With GENBAND Mobile Office and Mobile Voice VPN, GENBAND is uniquely positioned in the marketplace with a complete solution that includes both access connectivity and enterprise-grade office telephony applications. Our solution opens new revenue generating opportunities for mobile operators as they more comprehensively serve business customers.”
Joe McGarvey, principal analyst of IP services infrastructure at Current Analysis (News - Alert) added that, “Over the past year, GENBAND has significantly broadened its mobile portfolio and invested in new solutions. GENBAND's Mobile Office and Mobile Voice VPN solutions offer a unique combination of functionality encompassing both access infrastructure and applications for the end user that few companies are capable of or presently focused on offering. Today's announcement creates a range of interesting possibilities for mobile service providers to better serve business customers, improve broadband offerings, reduce cost and increase revenue.”
