GENBAND says it’s strengthening its family of “network-transformation” solutions via its just-announced purchase of Aztek Networks, a supplier of switch-consolidation and network-migration solutions.

No financial details were disclosed.

The line-access technology that comes with Aztek also will allow GENBAND’s customers to “eliminate legacy TDM sites, consolidate and modernize their core network, and realize significant savings in capital and operating expenses.” The G5 Line Access Gateway, formerly the Aztek 5000LF, will facilitate this process.

According to GENBAND, its G5 “interworks with the transformed IP core to support advanced IP services (including multimedia, unified communications, dynamic routing and mobility) and critical functionalities like emergency stand alone (ESA) services, 911, fault reporting and alarms as well as trunking and DLC aggregation capabilities.??

Notes Charlie Vogt, GENBAND’s president and CEO, “We welcome Aztek customers, employees and solutions to the GENBAND family and look forward to offering the G5 platform, which is fully integrated into our network transformation portfolio. With this acquisition, GENBAND is uniquely positioned to offer our customers a true end-to-end network transformation solution – from the edge all the way to the core.”?
