|ADTRAN Launches Session Border Control for Enterprise IP Business Gateways and Routers|
Session Border Control software streamlines SIP trunking services to the enterprise
“More and more businesses are turning to SIP trunking services as the
connectivity option for their IP-based communications systems,” said
Used at the customer premise to address interworking and interoperability between the service provider’s VoIP network and the customer’s IP PBX, the NetVanta and Total Access devices with the SBC features will handle NAT/firewall traversal, VoIP protocol interworking, transcoding, media anchoring and provide numerous service provider troubleshooting tools. By moving this functionality to the edge of the enterprise network, service providers can more easily integrate directly with a wide variety of IP PBX vendors’ SIP trunking implementations. It also provides a clear point of demarcation that enables providers to gather valuable metrics and perform tests, as well as implement network disaster recovery, security and failover polices without having to modify a customer owned IP PBX. These new SBC features, coupled with the widely deployed Total Access and NetVanta devices, will make it simpler for service providers to extend their high-value SIP trunking services to a broad set of SME and business customers—a market that has been largely unaddressed.
“The Session Border Control functionality is a natural extension of
ADTRAN’s IP Business Gateway and Access Router product lines. It will
enable our service provider customers to quickly and easily grow their
SIP trunking business without having to purchase additional hardware,”
ADTRAN’s solutions will be on display this week in booth 1201 during Enterprise Connect. More information about the conference can be found at the website: http://www.enterpriseconnect.com/orlando/.
