U.K.-based managed services provider Timico has selected GENBAND’s unified communications (UC) solution to bring new mobility services and offerings to its business customers. GENBAND is expanding the already-deployed UC solution with new capabilities for receptionists, desktop clients and smartphone applications.
Timico is also deploying GENBAND’s interconnect solutions for SIP Trunking and SIP multimedia services for its small, medium and large enterprise customers.
“As the workforce becomes increasingly mobile and geographically dispersed, we continue to expand our offerings to meet the expectation of anywhere, anytime on any device availability,” said Trefor Davies, CTO for Timico. “By expanding our longstanding relationship with GENBAND, we are able to offer a really innovative and feature-rich platform with the latest in mobility solutions for the desktop computer, smartphone and tablets at extremely competitive rates – revolutionizing the business unified communications market in the U.K.”
Davies added, “Combining GENBAND’s advanced mobility and interconnect capabilities provides us with a powerful end-to-end solution that allows us to extend to our customers all of the benefits of unified communications, while simultaneously supporting secure SIP trunking and seamless connectivity to other networks for advanced, cost effective delivery of voice services.”
GENBAND’s UC suite offers multimedia applications for voice, video, conferencing, instant messaging, voice and visual messaging, presence, collaboration and mobility, allowing end users to use their mobile handset as if it were wired directly to their business office – with the same features, dial plan, calling line ID and long-distance plan as their main office phone.
“Today, employees use their company-provided mobile phone as a primary communications device for conducting business, and with GENBAND’s UC solution they turn their car, coffee house or mobile hotspot into a virtual office,” said B.G. Kumar, president of GENBAND’s multimedia business unit. “This extension of our relationship demonstrates Timico’s commitment to mobile innovation, and we are pleased to provide them with a leading set of enterprise telephony, UC, IP interconnect and SIP trunking capabilities through the deployment of GENBAND’s applications and SBC solutions.”
