May 10, 2016 — Recently, in Orlando, Genband held its annual user conference – Perspectives16. This event brings together some of the biggest names in the technology biz – from intel to HP to SAP, and TIA, and more. Genband is one of the leading players in the embedded network business and has developed a very cutting-edge solution called Kandy.
Kandy is a platform as a service (PaaS) solution that offers the capability to weave rich communications services into business and consumer applications – both mobile and on the web. It is a cloud-based, real-time communications software development platform that includes application programming interfaces (APIs), software development kits (SDKs) and quick starts, such as pre-built applications like video shopping assistance.
While not the only vendor with such services, Genband’s offering is the most cutting-edge. It is designed to provide a lot of traction for NVF and SDN. Why this is so significant is that XaaS will be highly cloud-centric and become the de facto deployment model for the future in most cases. They just have a jump on it.
