Many communications service providers are constrained by legacy tandem or transit networks that are expensive to maintain, difficult to extend or past their lifecycles and posing risks. GENBAND's Tandem IP Network Transformation solution provides modern IP-based options, helping service providers offer efficient IP-based interconnects and exploit a flatter tandem/transit network architecture, which significantly reduces recurring power, HVAC, space and staffing costs.
The GENBAND solution minimizes or eliminates upfront capital equipment investments through unique operating-expense-based program options paid for from avoided costs, and reduces ongoing operations expenses while ensuring carrier-grade reliability and scalability. GENBAND offers the field-proven network elements, experienced business partnerships and global professional services resources to ensure a successful and profitable network transformation.
GENBAND supports replacement of the following legacy tandem switches: DMS-200, DMS-250 Siemens EWSD, Ericsson AXE, Alcatel-Lucent 4ESS, and the GENBAND CS2000 and CS2K.
