Ribbon Communications lifts revenues 45% in Q2, to sell Kandy Communications Platform

Thursday 6 August 2020 | 13:58 CET | News
Ribbon Communications revenues jumped 45 percent year-on-year in the second quarter to USD 210 million, buoyed by demand for its VoIP services amid the coronavirus pandemic and with customers restarting delayed projects and initiating new ones as the crisis pushes more people to work and learn from home. CEO Bruce McClelland said Ribbon is also starting to see a recovery in its Packet Optical business as compared to the first quarter. It noted in particular its latest upgrade project from Bharti Airtel, signed after the end of Q2.
