“With our business customers clamoring for unified communications capabilities, the choice was clear,” said Andrew Kumar, Vodafone Fiji’s Chief Technology Officer. “GENBAND is a long-time trusted partner and Nuvia gets us to market now with a rich set of services that are immediately compelling vs traditional PBX solutions.  As a mobile provider, our customers expect a solution that helps them work from anywhere; Nuvia’s focus on mobility and ubiquitous collaboration is a logical extension of our services.”
