Software-Based Session Border Controller

The Ribbon Communications Session Border Controller Software Edition (SWe) is the industry’s only software-based, cloud native SBC architected to enable and secure real-time communications in the cloud, without compromise. The SBC SWe features the same code base, resiliency, media transcoding, and security technology found in Ribbon’s award-winning hardware-based SBC 5000 Series and SBC 7000 Session Border Controllers. The only difference is how customers choose to deploy it: as a Virtual Network Function (VNF) on industry-standard servers in a data-center environment using a hypervisor: as a VNF in an OpenStack cloud infrastructure: or as a VNF on public cloud or hosted services including Amazon Web Services (AWS). The SBC SWe operates seamlessly with the existing Ribbon SBC product portfolio.
