GENBAND Launches GENiUS IMS to Transform Global Networks and Enable the Delivery of Advanced Communications Services
BARCELONA, Spain --(Business Wire)--
a leading developer of IP infrastructure and application
solutions, today announced the introduction of GENBAND (News - Alert) GENiUS IMS, a
unique, flexible and simplified network transformation solution that
provides best-in-class elements for both integrated and distributed IMS
environments. As an enhancement to the award-winning GENBAND
GENiUS™ solution, GENiUS Integrated IMS empowers customers to
quickly offer advanced IP communications services that significantly
reduce total cost of ownership with network and operational simplicity,
while offering the flexibility of a seamless transition to a fully
distributed IMS architecture. GENiUS Distributed IMS provides operators
the flexibility to interwork into a deployed IMS core, enabling a smooth
network transformation path to a converged core.
The comprehensive GENBAND GENiUS IMS solution fully integrates
functionality from several key components of GENBAND's market-leading
product portfolio, including the A2™
Communications Application Server; C20™
Access Gateway (News - Alert) and Media Gateway Control Functions (AGCF, MGCF); the C3™
Transcoding Media Resource Controller; the S3™
Intelligent Session Border Controller (SBC); the G-Series
media gateways; and P-Series
Traffic and Policy Management solutions.
"GENBAND GENiUS IMS is a breakthrough approach that eliminates the
complexity of deploying, integrating and managing separate IMS elements
across operational systems," said Charlie Vogt (News - Alert), President and CEO,
GENBAND. "The GENiUS Integrated IMS solution is a game changer for
service providers who don't want the complexity of deploying separate
IMS elements and the burdens of integrating these separate elements into
their operational systems and maintaining them on an on-going basis. The
GENiUS Distributed IMS solution is ideal for those service providers who
already have a Core IMS vendor and want to leverage the best-in-class
elements of the GENiUS platform for a seamless migration from legacy to
GENBAND's flexible approach enables mobile and fixed operators to
monetize services by rapidly enabling the delivery of revenue-generating
voice and multimedia applications, including Rich Communications Suite
(RCS), Enhanced RCS (RCS-e), high definition voice and video, instant
messaging with federation to other networks, network-based address books
and call logs, intuitive presence handling, extreme personalization
through web-based user portals and voice over LTE (News - Alert) (VoLTE) services.
"Service providers continue to face growing demands from subscribers who
expect feature-rich content delivered anywhere, at any time, and across
a growing array of devices," said Diane Myers, Infonetics Research.
"Additionally, operators are facing a competitive challenge from
Over-the-Top (OTT) providers. GENBAND's GENiUS IMS platform introduces a
flexible and scalable IMS solution that enables operators to accelerate
time-to-market of advanced communications services, including RCS-e and
VoLTE, while at the same time differentiating from the OTT players with
enhanced security and quality of service for subscribers."
The GENBAND GENiUS solution enables seamless deployment of advanced
communications services for both narrowband and broadband access through
the GENiUS IMS AGCF capabilities. Through simple software upgrades on
the GENiUS platform, this unique approach supports existing IP
multimedia services, IMS enhanced services, and hybrid deployments using
the same network solution, offering service providers a seamless and
flexible network transformation approach.
