Texas Business reports:  GENBAND, a leading developer of IP infrastructure and service solutions, opened its corporate headquarters in Frisco.

The 52,000-square-foot, eight-story building is located at 2801 Network Boulevard in Frisco.

The new facility houses GENBAND’s senior management, sales, marketing, finance, legal and human resources teams who have moved from GENBAND’s existing Plano campus.

The Plano facility will continue to operate as a strategic service and support center as well as one of GENBAND’s five Product Centers of Excellence.

“Our new corporate headquarters continues our strategic commitment to the Dallas Metroplex telecom corridor, combining the best and brightest technology talent with an unbeatable cost and quality of living,” said chief executive Charlie Vogt. “With proximity to our existing Plano Global Design Center and the DFW International airport, we are well positioned for the rapid growth GENBAND is experiencing.”

At a grand opening held at the new headquarters facility this week, GENBAND welcomed community leaders, media, partners and employees, and also expressed thanks to the Frisco Economic Development Corporation for facilitating GENBAND’s move to the city.

“Attracting GENBAND is a major win for Frisco,” said Frisco Economic Development Corporation president. “As a significant employer who is leading the transformation of telecommunications networks through IP innovation, GENBAND fits perfectly with our expanding profile as a leading technology center. We welcome GENBAND to Frisco and look forward to supporting their continued success and expansion.”

GENBAND’s headquarters uses the company’s A2 Converged Application Server and will serve as a showcase for IP business productivity tools including unified communications to advanced audio, video and web conferencing. GENBAND employees are equipped with the A2 Personal Communicator client application on their desktops for access to instant messaging, phone and calendar presence, voice and video calling, as well as meet-me conferencing & collaboration. This single A2 desktop application allows employees to communicate better, faster and more efficiently between locations around the world.

GENBAND has products deployed in over 600 customer networks spanning more than 80 countries.
