“We are pleased with our first quarter sales results. In the face of very difficult global conditions for our customers and employees arising from the COVID-19 pandemic, we achieved organic revenue growth of eight percent compared with the first quarter of last year, driven by strong demand for our communications software as our customers responded to increased traffic on their networks,” said Bruce McClelland, President and Chief Executive Officer of Ribbon Communications. “We saw an increase in session software deployments to facilitate remote work and Ribbon’s multi-year investments in fully virtualized software and cloud products allowed us to rapidly deploy solutions for our Service Provider and Enterprise customers.”
Mr. McClelland added, “During March we successfully completed the merger with ECI. Although the ongoing pandemic has impacted demand in certain regions and created supply chain challenges for our Packet Optical Network products, we are excited about the opportunities this merger provides, with an impressive breadth of products to serve our combined global customer base.”
