The deal automatically gives GenBand access to a large potential market for its IMS products and multimedia applications. Siemens has an installed base of 1,100 EWSD switching systems and more than 2,500 DCO host and remote switches across North America.
Along with the DCO business and product portfolio, GenBand will acquire all associated personnel as well as the DCO service and support infrastructure. Siemens will continue to service and support its EWSD switching systems.
Siemens, not coincidentally, is an investor in GenBand.
