GENBAND's Perspectives15 Event Takes Orlando by Storm

May 18, 2015

The big day has finally arrived, and GENBAND's Perspectives15 customer and partner summit has fired up in earnest at the JW Marriott Grand Lakes in Orlando. We've heard plenty about this event going into it, but now that all the blinders are off, and all the covers thrown back, it’s clear that this gathering is going to be every bit a match for previous ones. In fact, this could be the biggest Perspectives event that GENBAND has ever put on.

The Perspectives15 event will have plenty to offer for those who attend, starting with an impressive array of keynote speakers. One of the biggest such speakers to grace the lineup is Sir Ken Robinson, who received a special designation from Fast Company magazine declaring him to be “one of the world's elite thinkers on creativity and innovation.” That alone might be reason enough to attend, but it only goes on from there. An array of topics will be on tap, according to GENBAND executive vice president and chief marketing officer Patrick Joggerst, that includes such things as network functions virtualization (NFV), service provider over-the-top (OTT) systems, net neutrality issues, and many more. These are, as Joggerst put it, topics “...that are shaping our industry.”

GENBAND will have the KandyMobile on hand, which should make for another terrific exhibition. The KandyMobile is an RV that's been refitted with Kandy technology, giving it access to a wide array of communications options from right within the vehicle. The KandyMobile routinely makes tours throughout North America to show off Kandy's capabilities, and users will be able to see the system work on the same degree that developers and C-level executives have seen it for some time now.

But it's not just going to be about the work, either; while there will be keynotes and exhibits aplenty from not only GENBAND but also its various partners, GENBAND's also got plans for a good time on hand. While Orlando in May sounds thrilling enough for most anyone, GENBAND will be bringing in one more point: Kansas. The three-sextuple-platinum band will be performing at the House of Blues May 19, serving as GENBAND's featured entertainment.

Perspectives15 is likely to be one of the biggest shows around in the real time communications space, and those who want to see what a player in the field is doing to cement and expand its position as a leader will do well to hit this show. The real time communications industry in general is one that's featured a lot of changes and new developments on a regular basis, and GENBAND is often found at the forefront of these developments. It certainly hasn't hurt matters that GENBAND was recently named to CNBC's 2015 Disruptor 50 list, and that means GENBAND should have quite a bit up its sleeves to address the changing market.

There's little doubt that Perspectives15 will be a major event, and will live up to its name in providing perspective on several fronts. Only the next few days will tell just how big a success the show is, but in all likelihood, GENBAND is about to provide a perspective that few will want to miss.
