For Immediate Release: May 5, 2017

SAN JOSE, Calif. – Sonus Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: SONS), a global leader in securing Cloud and real-time communications, announced today that its cloud native Session Border Controller Software edition (SBC SWe) completed the testing and validation process of the Wind River Titanium Cloud ecosystem program. In collaboration with Wind River, Sonus is offering a proven, carrier-grade virtual SBC that is designed to meet service provider requirements for performance, reliability, and availability.

As industry standards continue to evolve, successful cloud communications deployments require collaboration and testing between service orchestration vendors, Virtual Network Function (VNF) vendors, and Network Functions Virtualization Infrastructure (NFVI) providers.

The Titanium Cloud ecosystem enables the availability of interoperable standard products optimized for NFV deployment with Titanium Cloud to help accelerate time-to-market. By leveraging the innovation of Wind River’s Titanium Cloud and Sonus’ cloud native SBC, service providers can confidently and reliably deliver carrier-class real-time communications in the Cloud. This partnership expands Sonus’ NFVI partner network to enable rapid onboarding in Wind River environments.

The Sonus SBC SWe is the industry’s leading software-based, cloud native SBC architected to enable and secure real-time communications. The SBC SWe delivers security, transcoding, and signaling and media interworking with the same reliability as Sonus’ hardware-based SBC appliances. Sonus’ validation is one more proof point for its cloud native SBC VNF and showcases its commitment to a multi-vendor cloud ecosystem.

Wind River Titanium Cloud is a fully integrated, ultra-reliable, and deployment-ready portfolio of virtualization software products. Titanium Cloud technologies enable organizations such as service providers to deploy virtualized services faster, at lower cost, and with guaranteed uptime.
