GENBAND's family of next generation cloud-enabled session border controllers provide robust security, simplified interoperability, advanced session management, and carrier grade reliability for fixed, mobile, cable and interconnect/wholesale service providers, as well as enterprises of all sizes. GENBAND's session border controllers provide powerful deployment flexibility that enable high levels of service quality for applications such as SIP Trunking, Unified Multimedia Communications, VoLTE, VoWi-Fi, RCS and OTT. And with industry leading scalability, GENBAND's SBC enables seamless IP interconnections for IP eXchange (IPX), IP Peering, Intra-Network, and International Interconnects for the world's largest networks.
GENBAND's software-centric SBC solutions provide the flexibility to be deployed as integrated or distributed SBC’s running on powerful COTS appliances or as cloud-native virtual network functions in the NFV cloud. This has been achieved by decoupling the SBC Signaling and Media functions into SBC ACS Advanced Signaling Software and AMS Advanced Media Software components, a step which brings several key advantages. This same flexibility allows a hybrid SBC appliance/VNF combination, a unique GENBAND capability that protects operators’ existing infrastructure investments as they migrate to NFV environments.
With a pioneering approach to NFV that fully embraces the objectives of the ETSI NFV working group, GENBAND’s field hardened SBC software is modularized into cloud-native signaling and media VNF’s to offer service providers a unique, elastically-scalable and automated SBC solution:
GENBAND’s SBC VNF’s enable new resiliency and redundancy schemes for geo-distributed and geo-redundant deployments. The AMS VNF runs on standard NFV infrastructure (NFVI), and is independent of special purpose hardware acceleration. The lifecycles of the SBC VNFs are managed by the GENBAND VNF Manager (VFM), which interfaces with network orchestrators and virtual infrastructure managers.
The GENBAND SBC software can be deployed on multiple GENBAND Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) platforms providing a range of performance and scalability to suit the needs of service providers and enterprises, and for integrated or distributed deployments.
Element Management and Real-time Session Management is provided by the GENView Manager products. GENView Analytics is a fully virtualized, centralized solution offering enhanced interactive visualization and analytical tools for advanced service and network performance monitoring and troubleshooting.
