Genbands’s carrier-class, secure, multimedia communications cloud services enable Black Box to offer HD voice, video, multimedia messaging, mobility, conferencing, web collaboration, desktop clients and fixed mobile convergence as a service to its clients. Black Box will provide the NUViA cloud solution in a comprehensive unified communications as a service (UCaaS) solution that includes a suite of related products and services.
Black Box is currently a platinum partner in Genband’s Partner Advantage program. The announcement represents an extension of a previous agreement which enables Black Box to offer the Genband on-premise solution to its customers in North America.
“We are very excited to expand our relationship with Genband. Our large, enterprise clients are increasingly asking for cloud-based solutions that offer them a full range of functionality with the added benefit of pay-as-you-go economics,” said Michael Laughlin, Black Box’s vice president, strategic relationships. “Genband’s NUViA solution will provide our clients with flexible, best-in-class, cloud-based options that eliminate the need for upfront capital expenditures.”
“Genband built the NUViA cloud service on a carrier-class foundation and fortified it with simple-but-powerful Web-based operations and provisioning and management capabilities to meet the demanding go-to-market specifications of leading system integrators such as Black Box,” said Ramnik Kamo, senior vice president for global services and Cloud/SaaS for Genband. “We look forward to further expanding our partnership with Black Box to solve their clients’ complex unified communications challenges with carrier-class solutions like NUViA.”
