Session Border Controllers
THE KEY TO IP NETWORKING
Session border controllers (SBCs) have become one of the most critical core network equipment to be deployed in a voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) network to exert control over the signaling and media streams in telephone calls or other interactive media communications.
In the last 10 years, IP based networks have proven to be cost effective and versatile infrastructure to transport both signaling and media. This accelerated the global adoption of 4G and LTE and the, also showed that a Session Border Controller (SBC) has to fulfill the need for greater quality of service (QoS) and experience (QoE) which are key requirements for any service provider.
The future generations will allow to add a business intelligence layer that addresses the Service Provider’s requirements to monetize their existing voice services and quickly launch new ones with a flick of a button. The secret lies in the SBC to possess an underlying application framework that is flexible, elastic and above all nimble…
Centralized high density requirements for high number of sessions
(est. >20,000 sessions)
Increase capacity and functionality in established services
Distributed deployment model for lower number of sessions
(est. <20,000 sessions)
Reduced risk for new services
