- The company says it hauled in more than $100 million in revenues last year.
- The first quarter of 2008, according to CEO Charlie Vogt, was Genband's single largest revenue booking quarter in its history.
Genband's management is constantly evolving. Bethe Strickland, former CEO of Aeras Networks, was named Genband's executive VP of North America Sales and Marketing last year, yet it appears she's no longer with the company. Jody Bennett, once the VP of marketing, is now on Genband's sales team, presumably reporting to Daniel R. Lakey.
- The last time the company publicly talked about going public, it cited its bankers as saying that Q1 2008 was the earliest possible time such an event would occur.
- Sources say the company is exploring whether to add Deep Packet Inspection, security, or session border controller functions to its products, given how Genband gateways usually sit right at a point two different types of networks meet. Makers of standalone appliances in those spaces could be partners, acquisition targets, or competitors, depending on what strategy Genband pursues.
