WESTFORD, Mass. – Ribbon Communications Inc. (Nasdaq: RBBN), a global software leader in secure and intelligent cloud communications, today announced that its Kandy Cloud won a “Best New Product” award at the 2019 Channel Partners Conference & Expo.

“The Best in Show awards are always a popular feature of the Channel Partners Conference & Expo,” said Lorna Garey, editor-in-chief for Channel Partners and Channel Futures. “A number of exciting new services debuted at this year’s event, and Ribbon’s recognition for Best New Product was the result of deliberations by the Channel Partners editorial team and based on the attractiveness of advanced, white-label-able communications technology to the CPExpo audience. We are pleased to be able to honor them.”

“Kandy gives our  Channel Partners the ability to quickly launch sophisticated and valuable services in the dynamic real time communications market,” said John Macario, SVP of Channel Marketing for Ribbon. “Coupled with Ribbon’s Service Assurance and Security solutions, Kandy leads to highly differentiated service offers and better margins.”

Kandy offers a full suite of functions including UCaaS, CPaaS, and WebRTC. The platform enables the integration of voice, video, messaging, chat, presence and collaboration into any app, service, website or business process via APIs, Software development Kits (SDKs) and pre-developed, revenue-ready turnkey applications such as Live Support and Visual Attendant.

Any white-label Kandy service element can be flexibly deployed in public, private or hybrid environments, enabling Systems Integrators (SIs), Value Added Resellers (VARs,) and Managed Service Providers (MSPs) to offer their customers a quick and cost-effective alternative to capex-intensive, time-consuming “build your own” models.
