mPortal Selected by GENBAND to Power SMART OFFICE Mobile Unified Communications (UC) Experience

March 21, 2014 | Telepresence Options



GENBAND launches new user paradigm for today's mobile workplace utilizing mPortal's cloud-based SPRINGBOARD� Comms Platform.

mPortal, a global leader in providing superior mobile experiences across connected devices, announced its SPRINGBOARD Comms software platform was selected by GENBAND, a leading developer of multimedia and cloud communications solutions, to create a new generation of mobile UC clients that meet the needs of today's mobile workforce.

With the increasing use of tablets and other BYOD mobile platforms, today's workforce needs an intuitive way to manage voice, video, messaging, conferencing and collaboration from their device of choice. Focusing on the end-to-end user experience, from device to cloud, mPortal's SPRINGBOARD Comms�integrates heterogeneous applications and services, delivering them across mobile devices and presenting a single user interface. The cloud-based SPRINGBOARD�platform also provides administrators with the power to manage users, applications and devices, including the ability to tune mobile experiences based on employees' unique roles.

Leveraging these advanced capabilities of SPRINGBOARD Comms is GENBAND'S SMART OFFICE 2.0, a premium unified communications (UC) experience delivered on an array of business devices and for the first time via WebRTC compliant web browsers. SMART OFFICE 2.0 is an end-to-end solution for enterprise-wide collaboration that makes a user's business identity - their phone number - device independent. Through SMART OFFICE 2.0, users can dynamically access their communications from multiple devices and engage in chat, call, video conference or screen share from the location and device of their choice. SMART OFFICE 2.0 is powered by GENBAND's EXPERiUS� Application Server, SPiDR� WebRTC Gateway, QUANTiX� Session Border Controller, GENView� provisioning solution, and CONTiNUUM� Call Session Controllers.

"Since SMART OFFICE was first developed we envisioned creating a new kind of mobile work experience," said BG Kumar, President of GENBAND's Multimedia Business Unit. "We've taken away the limits previously imposed on employees when they leave the office. mPortal's proven platform has been instrumental in helping us leverage the power of connected devices and dramatically expand business communications."

"As the popularity of mobile devices combined with cloud-based services continues to grow, we're seeing huge shifts in how people connect at work," said D.P. Venkatesh, Chief Executive Officer, mPortal. "The successful uptake of UC services is extremely dependent on the end-to-end user experience, which is about both user interface and user experience. We're very excited and proud that GENBAND chose us to help power this unique and exciting solution."
