GENBAND Demonstrates Powerful Network Functions Virtualization-Enabled Distributed Session Border Controller Solution at Perspectives14

Orlando, FL, June 10, 2014 – GENBAND, a leading developer of multimedia and cloud communications solutions, today announced that it will demonstrate the power of its Network Functions Virtualization (NFV)-enabled Distributed Session Border Controller (D-SBC) solution at its Perspectives™14 Customer and Partner Summit, taking place June 9-12 in Orlando. The GENBAND D-SBC architecture leverages Advanced Media Software (AMS) and world-class Internet Protocol (IP) signaling capabilities to offer network operators significant capital and operational savings. The D-SBC also provides operators deployment flexibility with enhanced capabilities to share media and transcoding resources, centrally manage sessions and improve network resiliency.

“The D-SBC represents a significant milestone in implementing GENBAND’s vision of NFV and cloud deployment as it enables a rapid evolution to cloud-based signaling solutions that leverage elastic scalability to generate cost savings and time-to-market benefits,” says BG Kumar, Chief Product Officer at GENBAND. “We are committed to bringing the benefits of this new distributed architecture to our customers, with the potential to generate substantial CAPEX and OPEX savings, including the improved energy efficiency gains driven by the high performance AMS platform.”

GENBAND’s D-SBC solution enables independent scaling of signaling, media and transcoding resources and provides industry-leading performance with a smaller footprint. Perspectives14 attendees will experience first-hand the power of the D-SBC solution together with demonstrations that showcase the unique advantages of GENBAND’s approach to NFV and cloud.
