GENBAND products have great standing in the market, so it's never really that surprising to see these tools crop up in new positions. The Hancock Telephone Company recently became one of the latest to add GENBAND to the lineup, bringing in its Network Transformation system to help secure and add to its customer base with more and better services.
GENBAND's Network Transformation service, which in this case includes the C15 Call Controller, can include a variety of systems to help make the overall network picture better. Including such tools as network functions virtualization (NFV) and regional IP network transformation, the GENBAND system can be used on several different fronts to help produce desired results according to needs on the ground.
Several reasons drove Hancock Telephone's move to GENBAND Network Transformation. With the system in place, Hancock Telephone could add HD Voice to its lineup, allowing users to get clearer, better quality calls made and received. Plus, there was access to mobility tools and even video calling to consider, two more features in ever-increasing demand by users.
Hancock Telephone's vice president Robert Wrighter Jr. said, “Migrating to GENBAND's proven Network Transformation solution allows us to reduce our capital expenditures, while future-proofing our network with the advanced communications features that today's consumers and businesses are demanding.”
Reduce the power consumption costs that many businesses will see as a result of making the jump to network transformation—GENBAND notes that it can in some cases convert a system from multiple floors' worth of central office equipment down to just a few racks' worth—and that's just one more reason in a steadily growing slate of reasons to make the move.
It's hard to pass up a system that has so much potential to change and improve overall operations with just a few comparatively simple tools. When it's possible to drop the costs so deeply—we've already seen reduced power consumption, but also consider the reduced equipment costs required, the costs to maintain that equipment that doesn't need to be there anymore and so on—that alone is a compelling reason to bring in a new tool. When the implications for revenue and profitability are added in, meanwhile, the reasons only become more compelling. Just reducing costs and maintaining revenue makes a business more profitable, but when costs can be reduced and revenues increased in the process, that's a masterstroke.
