The communications industry is steadily moving to a software-based model that relies on robust, standards-based platforms including commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) servers.  These platforms allow service providers and enterprises to leverage Moore's Law efficiencies, gaining substantial benefits from the cyclical gains in computing horsepower and speed.  As well, these platforms come in a variety of sizes and capabilities, allowing the optimal mix of network needs and customer, geographic, and service demands.

GENBAND is at the forefront of innovation in communications-centric software development, and many of the SMART CORE™, SMART SESSION™ and SMART EXPERIENCE™ solutions are deployable on standards-based platforms that include various sizes and capabilities of rack-mounted servers and ATCA chassis systems.
