GENBAND’s Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) Platform Nuvia Wins the Internet Telephony Services Providers’ Association (ITSPA) 2015 Best VoIP Infrastructure Award

Platform delivers rich feature set, improved time to market and cloud economics

Maidenhead, UK and Frisco, TX April 1, 2015 — GENBAND, a leading provider of real-time solutions, today announced that its Nuvia™ Cloud UC solution has been recognized with the 2015 Best VoIP infrastructure Award by the Internet Telephony Services Providers’ Association (ITSPA), the voice of the UK VoIP industry. The 7th annual ITSPA awards ceremony was recently held in central London.

“We salute the exceptional work that ITSPA is doing to promote and enhance Britain’s vibrant VoIP community, and are thrilled to be recognized for the second year in a row,” said Patrick Joggerst, GENBAND’s EVP and Chief Marketing Officer. “Nuvia is built to empower ITSPs, allowing them to focus on time-to-market and customer relationships instead of infrastructure upgrades.”

Nuvia UCaaS helps deliver the economics of cloud-based services to voice and unified communications while providing end users with superior services and an extensive feature set. Additionally, the Nuvia solution leverages the experience GENBAND has gained from the millions of lines already deployed on GENBAND platforms in leading service providers across the UK. Nuvia is also the only UK cloud service able to reuse legacy, UNISTim-based, Nortel IP phones. This makes the Nuvia platform extremely attractive and cost-effective for CS 1000 customers seeking a cloud-based solution that can preserve their endpoint investments.  Nuvia’s multi-site management capabilities also make it ideal for simplifying deployments that span multiple locations.

“Congratulations to all the winners and to those companies highly commended,” said Eli Katz, ITSPA Chairman. “This has been another competitive set of awards reflective of a continuing growth and diversity of our industry. The market is maturing and developing at pace, with 2015 looking to be another promising year full of exciting new services.
