GENBAND Announces the S3 Session Border Controller on the GENBAND GENiUS Platform

Robust, scalable solution provides advanced routing and network visibility

Frisco, Texas, March 16, 2011 – GENBAND, a leading developer of IP infrastructure and application solutions, today announced that the S3™ Session Border Controller on the GENBAND GENiUS™ platform is generally available and currently being deployed. Providing the field-proven S3 on the new GENBAND GENiUS platform enables unprecedented scalability while increasing system flexibility and reliability. In addition, the new GENiUS platform enables additional GENBAND IP solutions, such as call control or traffic and policy management, to use the same chassis as the S3, minimizing footprint and power requirements.

Multiple service providers are currently deploying and realizing the benefits of the S3 SBC on the GENBAND GENiUS platform. Following an extensive competitive evaluation process, WorldSIM selected the GENBAND S3 on GENiUS for their IP Interconnect network. As an international Mobile Virtual Network Enabler (MVNE) offering mobile roaming solutions, WorldSIM required a product with extensive network visibility combined with the ability to scale to meet their aggressive growth forecasts.

“We selected the GENBAND S3 SBC as the platform of choice for WorldSIM, with the necessary features and scale to address our demanding requirements,” said Arif Reza CEO of WorldSIM. “The GENBAND GENiUS platform, combined with the unique partitioning capabilities and real-time session visibility provided by the S3 SBC, allows us to effectively manage the growth in our network. We sought an industry leader with a long-standing track record of success and GENBAND’s credentials provide us with confidence as we roll out our growing IP network.”

DiGiTek, a rapidly expanding VoIP Service Provider in Bangladesh, has also embraced the new GENBAND S3 offering. After consulting with another GENBAND customer in the region, DiGiTek selected the S3 on the GENiUS platform and the Real Time Session Manager (RSM) as the best solution to address their needs.

“The S3 exceeded our requirements for a session border controller while providing us an incredible view of the performance of our network,” said Ziaur Rahman, CEO of DiGiTek. “Seeing the S3 perform so well in another carrier’s network made it a natural choice. The additional flexibility offered by the GENBAND GENiUS platform further validated our decision.”

“Both of these innovative carriers have met with tremendous success in their respective markets and we are excited to work together with them as they continue to innovate and grow,” said Pablo Gargiulo, President of Global Sales, GENBAND. “These customer wins reinforce our company’s strategy to address carrier demands for an integrated, secure, highly-scalable IP session management platform. By combining the field-hardened S3 SBC and the best-in-class GENBAND GENiUS platform, we are able to offer carriers a superior choice for large scale IP communications.”
