Solutions for Service Providers

Service Provider Access SBC and Peering SBC

Service Providers are all looking today at Network Function Virtualization as means to cut costs and become more agile in launching new services. Session Border Controllers, used on carriers’ core networks, are key network elements that serve for access or peering purposes. It is therefore imperative for service providers seeking to deploy a new SBC, to select an SBC which is NFV ready. This is true even if an NFV network is not yet in place. AudioCodes Mediant 9000 and Mediant Virtual Edition SBCs are NFV ready and deployed at the service provider’s core for both peering (interconnect) and access applications. In fact, the same physical device, can perform peering and access at the same time.
