WESTFORD, Mass., Aug. 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Ribbon Communications Inc. (Nasdaq: RBBN), a global provider of converged communications software and network solutions to Service Providers, Enterprises, and critical infrastructure sectors, today announced its financial results for the second quarter of 2020.
Revenue for the second quarter of 2020 was $210 million, compared to $145 million for the second quarter of 2019, an increase of 45%. Approximately $64 million of the year-over-year revenue increase was attributable to the acquisition of ECI Telecom Group, Ltd. (ECI), which closed on March 3, 2020.
“We are pleased with our second quarter financial results during these challenging times. Demand for our industry leading voice-over-IP real-time communications solutions was strong as service providers and enterprises continue to increase capacity to support work-from-home communication and collaboration needs. We also began to see a recovery in our Packet Optical business compared to our first quarter 2020 as customers restarted delayed projects and initiated new deployments,” said Bruce McClelland, President and Chief Executive Officer of Ribbon Communications.
Mr. McClelland added, “We were especially proud of the confidence that Bharti Airtel has demonstrated in Ribbon to support the upgrade of their packet optical network that will readily support deployment of 5G enabled services.” […]
