New cloud-based service offerings for SIP trunking, unified communications, contact centers and conferencing are exploding. With the advances in bandwidth and reliability of the IP network today, an enterprise’s decision to move their real-time communications to SIP and leverage cloud solution providers is getting easier and more cost effective.
By providing enterprises with cloud-based IP communications services, service providers can utilize NFV architectures and orchestration tools to dramatically increase their customer responsiveness. With the virtual, cloud-optimized SBC SWe, access to cloud-based services will deliver the security, scalability, interworking, and high-availability that is expected by enterprise customers.
Sonus’ SBC SWe delivers:
Because access traffic can be dynamic, due to traffic spikes such as Mother’s Day, or variable time-of-day traffic patterns into a call center, service providers need to be able to instantiate a run-time ready SBC for secure, robust, SIP-based services in just minutes. Deploying the SBC SWe in a Cloud environment gives a service provider significant advantages because the ease and speed by which virtual instantiations of an SBC can be deployed. With automatic registration and discovery, a newly created SBC instance will show up in the management domain and receive its network and feature configuration information without any user provisioning. This means it is possible to instantiate a running, configured SBC that is immediately capable of call processing requiring no operator intervention.
