Sigue Upgrades to GENBAND QUANTiX Session Border Controller for Advanced SIP Trunking Capabilities
Orlando, FL, March 18, 2013— GENBAND, a leading developer of multimedia and cloud communications solutions, today announced that Sigue Corporation, a leading global money transfer company providing services in approximately 145 countries on six continents through a global network of over 75,000 locations, has selected GENBAND’s QUANTiX™Session Border Controller (SBC) for advanced SIP Trunking capabilities in its new state-of-the- art back-up data center. Working with systems integration partner Intelli-Flex, Sigue selected the GENBAND QUANTiX SBC because of the superior performance and ease of implementation it offered over competitive products, including its existing SBC.
“GENBAND’s QUANTiX SBC delivers functionality and flexibility with optimized digit and caller line ID manipulation and a full-service suite of security features that our existing SBC provider could not match,” said Ignacio Ramirez, director technology services for Sigue. “GENBAND’s advanced enterprise SBC solution fortifies our call center by providing us with a cost-effective way to establish redundant, highly available SIP Trunking capabilities to CenturyLink. Additionally, GENBAND’s technical support staff, leveraging its deep carrier expertise and working in close collaboration with our partner Intelli-Flex, completed the installation in a very short timeframe.”
“There are few companies in the world that operate in more locations and countries than Sigue,” said Andy Asava, senior vice president of enterprise sales for GENBAND. “Sigue’s unique market demands require carrier class SIP Trunking with absolute reliability, security and availability, along with seamless interoperability with its legacy PBX network. GENBAND’s ability to interoperate with leading PBX solutions and long-time relationship with Intelli-Flex enabled us to quickly implement an unrivaled enterprise-level offering in terms of features, flexibility and price performance.”
