GENBAND Partners with Timico for Nuvia™ Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) Distribution in the UK

Delivers full range of business-class communications from the cloud, enhancing capabilities and lowering costs for broad range of enterprises

Frisco, TX, and London, UK, April 21, 2015 — GENBAND, a leading provider of real time software communications, today announced the availability of its award-winning UCaaS platform through Timico, an independent communications service provider specializing in voice and data connectivity solutions for UK businesses. GENBAND’s UCaaS platform Nuvia, which was recently recognized with the ITSPA award for best VoIP infrastructure, provides a suite of market-ready desktop, mobile and web-optimized business communications services to both small businesses and large enterprises.

“This partnership allows us to deliver an additional level of service, convenience and flexibility to our customers and help them take their business communications to the next level,” said David Hamer, Director of Unified communications at Timico. “With its high level of security and ease of use, GENBAND’s UCaaS platform enables this transition to the cloud with full security.”

Outmoded PBX hardware fails to meet the demands of today’s communications-intensive environment. GENBAND’s UCaaS, backed by its carrier-grade technology, helps businesses of any size cost-effectively replace legacy assets with business-class, cloud-based unified communications solutions that deliver on today’s communications needs.

“Today’s businesses hunger for more collaborative, secure, reliable and productive communications solutions,” said David Hiscock, GENBAND’s Senior VP of EMEA Sales. “Our partnership with Timico will allow us to expand our reach and serve more enterprises with the feature-rich solutions that help them compete in today’s marketplace.”

GENBAND’s Nuvia solution leverages the millions of lines GENBAND already has deployed in leading service providers across the UK, and is the only UK cloud service able to reuse legacy Nortel IP phones. The Nuvia platform is extremely attractive and cost-effective for CS 1000 customers seeking a cloud-based solution that can preserve their endpoint investments.  Additionally, Nuvia’s multi-site management capabilities make it ideal for simplifying deployments that span multiple locations.

Key takeaways:

  • GENBAND and Timico are partnering to deliver UCaaS to enterprises across the UK.
  • GENBAND combines extensive experience in providing next generation solutions backed by a tradition of excellence, delivering the best of stability and innovation to its partners and customers.
