Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: SONS), a global
leader in SIP communications, today announced that TMC, a global,
integrated media company, named the Sonus Session Border Controller
Software edition (Sonus SBC
SWe) a 2014 Unified Communications Product of the Year winner. The
award honors the best, most innovative UC products and solutions
released in the last year by INTERNET TELEPHONY.
The SBC SWe is 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 only difference between the Sonus SBC SWe
and the Sonus SBC 5000 Series is how customers choose to deploy it.
Customers can choose between deploying the SBC SWe on industry-standard
servers or in virtualized environments. Architected to be scalable from
as few as 25 to an unlimited number of sessions, the user-defined scope
of the SBC SWe allows Sonus customers to choose where they reside on the
performance curve. Sonus provides customers with a set of performance
specifications for their host platforms, enabling customers to rapidly
expand capacity, calls per second (cps), features, transcoding and
security capabilities with a simple license key as business demands
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 enterprises 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.
Leveraging the same hardened code base across its hardware and software
SBC portfolio gives Sonus customers complete investment protection and
peace of mind about the security of their communications network. The
SBC SWe provides defense against Session Initiation Protocol (SIP)
network threats, Denial of Service (DoS)/Distributed Denial of Service
(DDoS) attacks and Real-Time Transport Protocol (RTP) messages.
“The Sonus SBC SWe represents Sonus’ continued commitment to helping
businesses communicate smarter, faster and more collaboratively,
specifically by providing the security features, session control and
interworking services,” said David Tipping, vice president and general
manager, SBC Business, Sonus. “Innovation is a cornerstone attribute of
Sonus, and we are honored to be recognized by TMC.”
“I am excited to proclaim Sonus as a 2014 recipient of TMC’s Unified
Communications Product of the Year Award for its innovative product, the
Sonus SBC SWe,” said Rich Tehrani, chief executive officer, TMC. “Our
judges were very impressed with the ingenuity and excellence displayed
by Sonus in its groundbreaking work on the Sonus SBC SWe.”
