Sonus Networks, Inc (Nasdaq: SONS), a global leader in SIP communications, today announced that the Sonus SBC 5000 series of session border controllers (SBC) has been tested and certified in Microsoft Corp's Unified Communications Open Interoperability Program for Lync Server 2010. The Sonus SBC 5000 series includes the Sonus SBC 5100, which delivers 250 to 10,000 sessions, and the Sonus SBC 5200, which supports 64,000 sessions on a single server. By achieving this certification, service provider, enterprise customers and resellers can be confident that Sonus SBC 5000 series products interoperate with Microsoft’s unified communications solutions featuring Lync Server 2010.

By deploying a Lync-based unified communications solution with Sonus SBCs, an enterprise can begin leveraging the benefits of real-time communications and a simplified network topology without replacing their legacy PBX solution. Sonus SBCs provide secure access to SIP trunking, which should enable enterprises to reduce costs and deliver new applications (such as unified communications and video) across their entire network. SIP trunking, trunking consolidation and the move to VoIP can reduce traditional enterprise telecom bills by up to 75%. The Sonus SBC portfolio is the fastest-growing on the market for 2011 according to industry analyst Infonetics (“Infonetics Research Service Provider VoIP Equipment and Subscribers,” 4Q11 report) - growing 4x faster than the market average.


"The Sonus SBC 5000 series provides a great option for combining Microsoft Lync into a legacy IP telephony infrastructure and activating the full suite of Microsoft Lync voice communications capabilities," said Ashima Singhal, Lync Group Product Manager, at Microsoft Corp. "In particular, Sonus’ strengths in interworking allow enterprises to take advantage of their legacy voice applications infrastructure and use SBCs to enable a smooth migration to SIP trunking and help create a truly unified communications network centered on Microsoft Lync."

“The formal certification of the Sonus SBC 5000 portfolio helps ensure that service providers and enterprises can reap the benefits of SIP-based applications like unified communications in a seamless manner as they deploy Microsoft Lync,” said David Tipping, Vice President and General Manager of SBC at Sonus.”
