• The Sonus SBC SWe (Software edition) is the industry’s first software-based Session Border Controller (SBC) that delivers unlimited scalability with the same advanced features and functionality of hardware on a virtualized platform;
• Sonus is the only vendor on the market with a common, hardened code base across its hardware and software SBC portfolio, providing customers holistic investment protection;
• Scalable from as few as 25 to an unlimited number of sessions, the SBC SWe is feature equivalent to Sonus’ award-winning hardware-based Sonus SBC 5000 Series;
• The Sonus SBC SWe addresses service providers’ requirements for network functions virtualization (NFV) and software-defined networking (SDN) enabled SBC technology to scale Cloud-based delivery platforms.

Sonus Networks, Inc., a global leader in SIP communications, today introduced the Sonus SBC SWe, the industry’s first software-based Session Border Controller (SBC) that delivers unlimited scalability with the same advanced features and functionality of hardware 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.

Infonetics Research estimates that more than 60 percent of enterprise SBCs forecast at $243 million for 2013 ship with 800 SIP sessions or less. With the Sonus SBC SWe, enterprise customers can now get the high-performance SBC capabilities they want robust security, superior voice and video quality, centralized policy management and broad interoperability for Unified Communications (UC) without paying a high upfront price.

For larger enterprise customers that might require a physical SBC in their data centers, the Sonus SBC SWe enables them to extend the same SBC capabilities to remote locations and branch offices without deploying more hardware at each location. The ability to almost instantaneously increase session count with a license key will be a tremendous asset for enterprises. Retail call centers often experience an influx of communications voice calls, video chats, instant messaging, etc. at the onset of the holiday season. However, there are times when call centers can’t predict volume peaks, such as retailer offers or new product introductions. In instances such as these, new sessions can be quickly enabled on the SBC SWe with a license.

Quotes:

“Sonus customers can now move seamlessly between hardware and software solutions, with assurance that their existing communications and network investments are fully protected,” said David Tipping, vice president and general manager, SBC Business, Sonus. “Unlike most virtualized SBCs on the market today, with the Sonus SBC SWe, service providers and enterprises are not ‘boxed in’ by hardware and no longer have to compromise on features or functionality when moving to software. Put simply, the Sonus SBC SWe sets a new bar for what customers should expect in SBC performance.”

“Security was recently cited by enterprises as the second leading barrier to Unified Communications deployment. New types of traffic voice, video, messaging traverse the IP network, and unsecured borders could lead to unwanted attacks,” said Diane Myers, principal analyst, Infonetics Research. “One of the strengths of the SBC SWe is that Sonus incorporates security and interworking experience into a ‘bring your own’ platform approach.”

“More than 67 percent of companies have virtualized Unified Communications applications to reduce costs, improve resiliency and enable more efficient utilization of server resources. The ability to run Unified Communications infrastructure on virtual servers is critical buying criteria,” said Irwin Lazar, vice president and service director, Nemertes Research.

Other Facts:

• Sonus and industry analyst Zeus Kerravala of ZK Research will host a webinar on Wednesday, October 9, 2013 at 12:00 pm. ET for enterprises and service providers to learn more about the Sonus SBC SWe and the impact of virtualization on Unified Communications.
• Sonus is the fastest growing brand of SBCs (Source: Infonetics Research, 2011 2012)
• Sonus is positioned in the Leaders quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Session Border Controllers, published October 9, 2012 by Gartner, Inc.
• By adopting SIP trunking, many enterprises save as much as 50 percent, enabling them to help fund the adoption of advanced Unified Communications technologies.
