Virtualized SBC (SWe)

Virtualized SBC (SWe)

Sonus’ First Virtualized SBC

User-defined real-time scalability and proven performance have merged to create Sonus’ first virtualized Session Border Controller (SBC). The Sonus SBC SWe uses identical software to Sonus’ award winning SBC 5000 Series. The only difference is the box—there isn’t one. The SBC SWe is the industry’s only software-based SBC architected to deliver unmatched scalability with the same advanced features and functionality of hardware on a virtualized platform. The SBC SWe empowers service providers and enterprises to define session count and resource utilization based on their business’ individual needs – with the click of a mouse; no truck roll needed.
