“With GENBAND, ConteXtream is providing a solution that enables service providers to offer innovative real-time communications services on the virtualized platform.”

“Perspectives has quickly become one of the signature, must-attend events in the industry and it would not be possible without the support of great partners like ConteXtream,” said Patrick Joggerst, EVP & Chief marketing officer at GENBAND. “Perspectives is being held at a new, larger venue this year and with the lineup of top-tier presenters, sponsors and entertainment that we have scheduled, this year’s conference promises to be the best yet. We are looking forward to ConteXtream and our other partners being a significant part of the success of this year’s event.”

Real-time voice and video communications is one of the business-impacting critical services that operators are providing and with the advent of LTE, the next generation of the traditional real-time voice services are being deployed in the face of robust competition from OTT (Over-the-Top) players. ConteXtream’s flagship product, ContexNet, is an OpenDaylight-based carrier-grade distributed software-defined-networking (SDN) fabric that provides support for elastic and scalable SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) services. ContexNet is also enabling the seamless migration from physical to virtual SBCs (Session Border Controllers).

“Carriers today are facing a shift from physical to virtual systems and they are looking to SDN to enable them to make this important shift,” said Anshu Agarwal, vice president of marketing at ConteXtream. “With GENBAND, ConteXtream is providing a solution that enables service providers to offer innovative real-time communications services on the virtualized platform.”
