GENBAND has announced that Hong Kong Broadband Network (HKBN) has selected the GENBAND GENiUS all-IP platform to enable the transformation and modernization of HKBN�s communications network. GENBAND will be migrating TDM and first generation VoIP switches, as well as first generation SIP servers, to the GENiUS-powered IP solution. This will allow HKBN to offer advanced business and residential multimedia communications capabilities across the region, stated the company.

HKBN is the fastest growing broadband service provider in Hong Kong, with fiber service reach of nearly two million residential homes and 1,700 commercial buildings with services including 100-1000Mb/s broadband access, telephony and IPTV.

�We are very pleased to expand our longstanding partnership with HKBN and support their network consolidation and migration efforts with our advanced GENiUS IP platform and software applications,� stated Mark Pugerude, president, global sales and marketing, GENBAND. �Through the GENiUS platform, we are able to seamlessly integrate a host of HKBN�s services in unprecedented ways, such as delivering advanced unified communications and multimedia capabilities with our GENBAND Mobile Life and Mobile Office software solutions, along with geo-redundant call control�all from the same platform.�

Incorporating the A2 Communications Application Server, S3 Session Border Controller and the C20 Converged Softswitch software on the GENiUS platform, GENBAND offers HKBN an advanced, highly scalable solution that delivers new revenue enablers while significantly reducing the total cost of ownership, boasted the company. The profile of the intelligent, common hardware modules on the GENiUS platform can be uniquely changed via software depending on the transient mix and scale requirements of the customer's network, which has provided HKBN with the customization and flexibility needed to cost effectively address its network modernization project.
