The Sonus SBC 2000™ Session Border Controller

The Sonus SBC 2000™ Session Border Controller
The Sonus SBC 2000™
Session Border Controller
Communications devices are growing smaller and smarter, so
Sonus designed a Session Border Controller (SBC) that was smaller
and smarter, too. The SBC 2000 Session Border Controller is an
advanced SBC independently verified for performance, delivering
robust security features and interoperability between disparate
networks. The SBC 2000 configurations are designed for ease of
deployment and growth. Both session and port expansion can be
remotely enabled via a simple license, eliminating the need for
a truck-roll and an on-site technician. The Sonus SBC 2000 also
features a wide range of I/O and call capacities as well as built-in
survivability for Microsoft and BroadSoft, so calls go through even
if the wide area network (WAN) goes down.
