Module Type
Multi-Chip Stand Alone
The Sonus SBC Software Edition Session Border Controller (SBC SWe) is a software-based, cloud-optimized SBC architected to enable and secure real-time communications in the cloud. Starting at 25 sessions, and scaling to tens of thousands per instance, the unique architecture of the SBC SWe allows customers to define where on the performance curve their network needs to reside. The SBC SWe uses a "microservices" design to separate signaling, media, and transcoding to optimize virtual network resources. It also supports on-demand auto-scaling, with a feedback loop using Key Performance Indicator
Tested Configuration(s)
  • HPE ProLiant DL380 Gen9 server with dual Intel Xeon processors running Sonus’s ConnexIP OS over a VMware ESXi 6.0 hypervisor
