Timico Expands Partnership with GENBAND to Deploy Mobile Unified Communications Services for UK Hosted Business Market

GENBAND, a leading developer of IMS and cloud communications solutions, today announced that Timico, a leading independent managed communications service provider specializing in converged communication, networking and hosting solutions for UK businesses, has selected GENBAND’s advanced Unified Communications (UC) solution to bring new mobility services and offerings to its business customers. As part of an end-to-end enhancement of Timico’s business offering, 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 UK.”

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.”

The market-leading GENBAND Unified Communications solution has fully integrated multimedia applications for voice, video, conferencing, instant messaging, voice and visual messaging, presence, collaboration and mobility. GENBAND’s Unified Communications solution provides an all-mobile corporate phone system for small-to-medium businesses and large enterprises. Additionally, the solution allows 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 Unified Communications 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, Unified Communications, IP interconnect and SIP Trunking capabilities through the deployment of GENBAND’s Applications and SBC solutions.”

GENBAND’s intelligent interconnect solution, which is powered by its Session Border Controller simplifies the network edge by securely managing, routing, and controlling real-time voice and multimedia sessions. It is a proven leader across a wide spectrum of applications including IP Interconnect, IP Exchange (IPX), Enterprise Unified Communications, SIP Business Trunking, Residential Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), Voice over Long Term Evolution (VoLTE) and the Rich Communications Suite (RCS) applications.

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, wh...
