Genband said that the CONTiNUUM™ C15 Call Session Controller replaced legacy network components that were nearing end-of-life and losing technical support with state-of-the-art software and hardware technology.

GENBAND’s advanced solution prepares our network for tomorrow’s requirements, while improving Quality of Service to our loyal customer base. We were thoroughly impressed with the network transformation expertise of GENBAND’s professional services team, as well as their partner, Innovative Systems, who supported the project.”
