Sonus Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: SONS), a global leader in SIP communications, today introduced the Sonus SBC SWe, the industry’s first software-based Session Border Controller (SBC) architected to deliver unlimited scalability with the same advanced features and functionality of the Sonus SBC 5000 Series on a virtualized platform.
The SBC SWe is feature equivalent to Sonus’ hardware-based SBC 5000 Series. The only difference between the Sonus SBC SWe and the Sonus SBC 5000 Series is how customers choose to deploy it: on industry-standard servers or in virtualized environments. Scalable from as few as 25 to an unlimited number of sessions, the user-defined scope of the SBC SWe means that Sonus customers get to choose where they reside on the performance curve. Sonus will provide customers with a set of performance specifications for customers’ host platforms, and customers can then rapidly expand capacity, calls per second, features, transcoding and security capabilities with a simple license key as business demands change.
Sonus is the only vendor on the market with the same hardened code base across its hardware and software SBC portfolio, giving customers complete investment protection and peace of mind about the security of their communications network. By leveraging the same codebase and management interfaces, customers can seamlessly add the SBC SWe to networks with existing Sonus hardware-based infrastructure. For customers looking to leverage new and existing platforms to support network functions virtualization (NFV) functionality, the SBC SWe will allow customers to deploy a fully featured SBC co-resident with other applications.
The SBC SWe can be readily deployed into existing virtualized infrastructure. The portability and flexibility of the SBC SWe solution makes it the ideal choice for service providers and partners that have invested in virtualization technology, prefer pre-packaged “solutions in a box,” require remote network deployments or want to expand opportunities into new geographic markets where deploying a hardware solution would be impractical or cost prohibitive.
