19 Jun 2012

Hong Kong Broadband Network (HKBN) has announced that it will modernise its network using Genband’s Genius all-IP platform, by migrating TDM and first-generation VoIP switches, as well as first-generation SIP servers to the Genius-based IP solution. Mark Pugerude, Genband’s president of global sales and marketing, said the Genius platform will enable HKBN to ‘seamlessly integrate a host of services, such as delivering advanced unified communications and multimedia capabilities. HKBN’s CTO Lo Sui Lun added: ’The upgrade will allow us to increase revenue generation opportunities across both residential and business customers while reducing equipment floor space and power consumption by 95%. Through interconnections enabled at the IP level by Genband’s Intelligent S3 SBC, we will also enhance our support for the international direct dial (IDD) market.’
