PLANO, Texas, and GAITHERSBURG, Md. -- GENBAND Inc., a market-leading developer of IP infrastructure solutions, and BroadSoft, Inc., the leading worldwide provider of VoIP applications, today announced a new set of solutions that enable carriers to upgrade their networks while supporting legacy features. The two companies have integrated GENBAND’s market-share leading gateways with BroadSoft’s world-class suite of hosted telephony and multimedia applications.

In response to carrier demand to migrate aging TDM switches and expand broadband voice services, the two companies have tightly coupled BroadSoft’s BroadWorks® VoIP application platform with GENBAND G9™ and G6™ gateways and C3 Signaling Controller, as well as the S3™ Session Border Controller (SBC). The combined solution offers affordable switch migration that extends beyond legacy functionality, delivering new sources of revenue.

"Previously, switch replacement meant new expenditures without new services,” said David Bukovsky , vice president of products, BroadSoft®. “Unlike other offerings, the GENBAND/BroadSoft solution allows carriers to deliver carrier grade legacy Class 4, Class 5 and voice over broadband services via a single system. Our combined solution enables carriers to reduce operational costs, but more importantly, gain a host of new services for the subscriber base. These new services — such as fixed-mobile integration, hosted unified communications and Web 2.0 integration — improve customer retention and provide new sources of revenue that were previously unavailable.”

“Pairing our market-leading solutions provides operators a unique choice with significant competitive advantages that were previously unavailable,” said Charlie Vogt, president and CEO of GENBAND. “This solution delivers an attractive business case that consolidates legacy network infrastructure, reduces operating costs, allows for limitless flexibility in scaling up or down, all while adding a new layer of revenue generating features and services not offered by competitors.”
