Session Border Controllers (SBCs) provide security, interoperability, routing and other functions in a Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) network. However, not all SBCs are created equal, and not all SBC customers have the same criteria.
The Sonus Tenor AF Series gives small businesses, SOHOs and branch offices with analog voice infrastructures an easy, cost-effective way to capitalize on the power of Voice over IP (VoIP). Tenors offer a complete survivable branch office solution providing support for integrating analog endpoints and the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN), while offering back-up call processing support for all Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) and analog calls.
The Sonus Tenor Series switching/gateway solutions are deployed worldwide to provide highly reliable, easy-to-implement VoIP connectivity in a full range of enterprise and service provider environments. These highly adaptable solutions work with traditional PBXs, legacy analog equipment, IP PBXs and IP phones, and SIP-based communications environments. They are perfect for deploying VoIP in small enterprises, SOHO or remote offices of larger enterprises, where analog and modem-based devices are common.
All Sonus Tenors offer a complete SIP-based VoIP solution for the branch office or for service provider customer premise equipment, providing full survivability in the event that access to the central and/or hosted IP PBX is lost. Because it delivers a complete solution in a single device - and because it offers such easy, scalable implementation and management - the Tenor significantly reduces the total lifecycle cost of VoIP deployment, while optimizing service reliability. Tenor also offers PSTN connectivity and legacy equipment integration for both analog and modem based devices.
