Ribbon session border controllers (SBCs) help the world’s leading enterprises reduce communications costs, enable unified communications, and protect their networks against IP-based attacks. Now small businesses and branch offices can enjoy the same industry-leading SBC technology in a right-sized appliance, designed specifically for their networks. The SBC 1000 is an advanced SBC, built for smaller enterprise networks, which delivers robust security, high availability, and proven interoperability with leading business solutions like Skype for Business Server. The Ribbon SBC 1000 also features built-in survivable branch appliance (SBA) functionality, so calls go through even if your wide-area network goes down. The SBC 1000 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 on-site technician.
