GENBAND to Acquire uReach Technologies to Accelerate Voicemail Transformation for Service Providers

GENBAND, a leading developer of multimedia and cloud communications solutions, today announced it has agreed to acquire uReach Technologies, which includes a carrier-class portfolio of voice, video and unified messaging solutions and services. For over a decade, uReach Technologies has been providing advanced, value-added services for some of the world’s largest and most demanding service providers including tier 1 carriers in North America and their millions of subscribers. The acquisition of uReach’s advanced solutions enhances GENBAND’s offerings with a comprehensive messaging portfolio designed to be deployed by global service providers via distributed, Internet-scale cloud or in-network models. uReach’s unique messaging software also offers innovative business applications designed to dramatically enhance productivity and improve communications.

“uReach has earned the trust of the service provider community, enabling today’s leading tier 1 carriers to modernize legacy voicemail systems with transformative mobile messaging and calling solutions,” said David Walsh, CEO of GENBAND. “Their technology aligns with our software-driven, open standards-based approach to network transformation – enabling a graceful migration away from expensive and aging voicemail technologies to real-time communications solutions of the future. We are pleased to welcome their team to GENBAND and look forward to bringing this proven technology to our global customer base.”

uReach is defining the next generation communications experience with innovative and groundbreaking solutions to power the always-on, mobile-centric world, the connected home and the rapidly expanding small business community. The uReach solution suite includes Advanced VoiceMail, VideoMail, VisionMail and VirtualReceptionist. These solutions are mobile, social and visual, offering carriers the latest voicemail, auto-attendant, fax, unified messaging, mobile fax, and mobile visual voicemail capabilities.

“Combining uReach’s technology with GENBAND’s global reach, engineering expertise and complementary communications offerings changes the game for service providers,” said Krishnamurty Kambhampati, CEO of uReach Technologies. “GENBAND has the capabilities to give our best-in-class technology even broader reach and we couldn’t be happier about the opportunity to deliver our solutions to more tier 1 service providers around the globe. Like GENBAND, uReach builds applications taking a mobile first approach rather than mimicking legacy premise solutions, enabling carriers to effectively compete with OTT threats.”

Leveraging service-oriented REST APIs, the IMS-compliant and open standards approach delivers applications across any network topology and enables device-independent access to the latest messaging and calling solutions. uReach’s unique solutions are designed from the ground up to be scalable and extensible and has met or exceeded the most stringent tier 1 cloud requirements of scalability, reliability and security.
