Next up in the guest stitched up to play the guitar in front of a totally uncritical audience is Jason Dackins of GenBand. Up until a few months ago I had never heard of Genband. Now they are about to become one of my most important strategic partners as they acquire the Nortel carrier division, CVAS.
GenBand is being financed by One Equity Partners (JP Morgan) and is putting together what I believe will be a major force in the carrier VoIP market. Other assets in the stable include the Session Border Controller NexTone.
I was happy to entertain them and little did they know that they would be entertaining us. Jason is playing Yviva Espana (I think).
