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 wireless market is in the midst of a major industry transformation - Fixed, Cable and Wireless networks are converging; 4G/LTE technology holds the promise of exciting multimedia services previously unimaginable; at the same time 4G/LTE eliminates one of the most fundamental services in wireless networks - circuit switched voice; content providers and third party voice applications are delivering services directly to the consumer, using wireless networks merely as a transport medium; and Interconnect/IPX providers are looking to play a bigger role and increase their revenues. Existing business and operating models in wireless networks are fast becoming obsolete.
