Vodafone Fiji has partnered with Genband to deploy a hosted solution that delivers next-generation cloud and UC services across the Pacific.
Designed as an upgrade to the Republic of Kiribati's fixed and mobile network infrastructure, the fully operational deployment leverages the GENBAND Application Server and Kandy Business Solutions for enhanced cloud-based applications. This hybrid offer enables Vodafone Fiji to deliver hosted UC services via satellite links to Kiribati through a local provider.
GENBAND is providing Vodafone Fiji with enhanced SIP Trunking services, voice over satellite, local media anchoring and PRI gateways. Vodafone Fiji leverages GENBAND's Application Server to deliver country-specific hosted billing from its Suva base while web collaboration, auto-attendant, voicemail and WebRTC applications are provided via Kandy Business Solutions.
With this, Kiribati customers can access mobile, UC services or SIP Trunk connectivity via the prepaid system, acquiring only the services they need. This innovative billing model further extends cost efficiencies and leverages existing billing infrastructure investments.
