By Telecomlead Team: GENBAND, a developer of IP
infrastructure and application solutions, introduced GENBAND GENiUS IMS, a
flexible and simplified network transformation solution that provides
best-in-class elements for both integrated and distributed IMS environments.
The innovative solution builds on the GENBAND GENiUS
platform to enable rapid introduction of revenue-generating multimedia services
in both integrated and distributed IMS environments.
GENiUS Integrated IMS enables 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 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,” said Charlie
Vogt, president and CEO, GENBAND.
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 IP networks,” Vogt added.
The comprehensive GENBAND GENiUS IMS solution fully
integrates functionality from several key components of GENBAND‘s product
portfolio, including the A2 Communications Application
Server; C20 and C15 Access Gateway 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.
By using this new solution mobile and fixed operators can
monetize services by rapidly enabling the delivery of revenue-generating voice
and multimedia applications.
The GENBAND GENiUS solution offers GENiUS IMS AGCF
capabilities which enables seamless deployment of advanced communications
services for both narrowband and broadband access through the GENiUS IMS AGCF
Through simple software upgrades on the GENiUS platform,
