Many service providers today are looking towards Network Function Virtualization as a way of cutting costs and becoming more agile in launching new services. Session border controllers (SBC), used on carriers’ core networks, are key elements that serve in access or peering roles. It is therefore imperative that service providers seeking to deploy a new SBC select one that 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. With AudioCodes solutions, the same physical device can perform peering and access functions at the same time.
