Telecom Lead Europe: GENBAND, a developer of IP
infrastructure and application solutions, has introduced its GENBAND Rich
Communications Suite-enhanced (RCS-e) solution powered by the A2
Communications Application Server and S3 Session Border Controller
The company said that its solution can be tailored for entry
level, economical pre-IMS deployments all the way to full-scale Long Term
Evolution (LTE) network deployments. It covers rich end user applications and
multi-platform mobile clients in addition to edge security and quality
monitoring with integrated system and client management.
GENBAND’s RCS-e solution allows carriers to
seamlessly, securely, cost-efficiently and reliably interconnect their RCS-e
services with one another and deliver fully interoperable, federated rich
communication services. Our approach encompasses the access and network edge
security that allows our RCS customers to interact smartly beyond the user
community established within their mobile carrier’s network,” said B.G. Kumar,
president, Multimedia Business Unit, GENBAND.
The Rich Communication Services Project and RCS-e
standard is an industry initiative managed by the GSMA and builds on the
universal success of the GSM standard.
With the roll out of LTE, IMS commercial deployments will
accelerate causing a major uptick in RCS availability and usage. Today, RCS-e
is gaining traction with mobile carriers around the world even before LTE truly
hits stride in 2013,” said Brian Partridge, vice president, Yankee Group.
The GENBAND S3 SBC provides mobile carriers and IP eXchange
(IPX) providers a secure and cost-effective solution for deploying RCS-e
services over IP networks.
Furthermore, the S3 reduces the time to deploy RCS-e
services by providing service providers the ability to manage and monitor Key
Performance Indicators (KPIs) and Service Level Agreements (SLAs), as well as
remotely troubleshoot any issues during the deployment critical components in
successfully launching RCS-e services.
