“Office on the Go” solution on SAFE™ devices from Samsung Mobile brings greater productivity and security to the enterprise
Frisco, Texas, February 19, 2013 — GENBAND, a leading developer of multimedia and cloud communications solutions, today announced a unique alliance with Samsung Telecommunications America, LLC (Samsung Mobile) that creates a significant evolution for the enterprise communications experience. By integrating Samsung Mobile’s market-leading SAFE™ (Samsung for Enterprise) designated devices with GENBAND’s SMART OFFICE mobile Unified Communications (UC) applications, these companies are bringing a “SAFE, SMART, and SIMPLE” user experience to the enterprise, creating mobile solutions that extend or even replace the standard office communications environment. The solution delivers voice, data, video communications and collaboration capabilities on Samsung SAFE devices to fully mobile-enable the enterprise market.
“This alliance with GENBAND brings powerful new communications capabilities to the enterprise, fortifying today’s mobile workforce with unprecedented on-the-go productivity,” said Tim Wagner, Vice President and General Manager, Enterprise Sales at Samsung Mobile. “Our SAFE solution, which enhances security for enterprise devices, combined with GENBAND’s industry leading UC software and service provider expertise, offers enterprise customers a holistic, innovative and cost-effective desk phone complement or replacement solution that will allow employees to carry their communications environment with them, whether inside or outside of the office.”
SAFE represents Samsung Mobile’s ever-growing family of enterprise solutions that include the necessary security and feature enhancements suitable for business use – on highly desirable devices recognized worldwide.
“Enterprise communications are quickly evolving to include mobile devices and the cloud, yet services are not integrated, making enterprises primed for the next wave of disruptive, innovative mobile UC technologies,” said Sam Waicberg, Chief Marketing Officer at GENBAND. “Our relationship with Samsung, complemented by our SMART multimedia portfolio and partner ecosystem, clearly differentiates this solution from competitive offerings by simplifying and enhancing the enterprise user experience. Our vision is consistent with the vision of many CIO’s – a mobile tablet as the primary voice and multimedia communications device bundled with a carrier grade, cloud-based UC service.
GENBAND plans to offer Samsung Mobile devices through its service provider customers and large systems integrator partners. Enterprises will have access to GENBAND’s Innovation Exchange™, ensuring a constant stream of new UC solutions developed specifically for the enterprise community and industry verticals.
“Together with Samsung Mobile we are offering our 600 service provider customers and channel partners turnkey solutions for SAFE, SMART, and SIMPLE unified communications,” said Charlie Vogt, President and CEO for GENBAND. “Our Samsung alliance and Making Networks Smarter approach will define the ultimate mobile office communications environment for the next decade and beyond.”
