Sonus Session Border Controllers (SBCs)
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.
A service provider may be looking for an SBC to support thousands of sessions and broad signaling interworking (to support more peer connections with international carriers); an enterprise may need an SBC to manage dial plans and policies across multiple PBX systems. From small businesses to large operators, Sonus’ has an award-winning and field-proven portfolio of SBCs to meet every need.
The Sonus Difference:
Security from attacks - SBCs are purpose-built to deliver top protection against Denial of Service (DoS) and Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks as well as toll fraud and theft of service
Better transcoding - Sonus SBCs can support high levels (thousands of simultaneous sessions) of transcoding without sacrificing critical functionality such as security or call admissions control
Performance under pressure - Sonus SBCs provide peak performance, even under extreme conditions and full-fledged network attack levels
Lync qualification - Sonus has the broadest portfolio of Lync 2013 and Lync 2010 qualified SBCs on the market
Whether you have an enterprise Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) network or you are a service provider offering Unified Communications (UC) services to your customers, Sonus SBCs can help you unify, simply and secure your communications.
