The SBC2000 Survivable Branch Appliance (SBA) provides basic voice services to branch office users during a WAN outage. During WAN outage, the SBA appliance manages the intra-branch voice calls and IM sessions as well as inter-branch communications and voice mail retrieval over PSTN. SBC2000 Benefits:
* Multiservice Router and VoIP gateway with Branch office Survivability
* Session Border Controller with NAT function, Network topology hiding, and Security
* Continued branch office operations through WAN failure
SBC2000 appliance offers extraordinary service integration of Unified communications to any size branch office. Businesses enjoy the benefit of deploying a single device for all networking and communication needs and save both capital and operational expenses. By supporting a variety of protocols, advanced security, codec transcoding, , and data services, the SBC2000 enables a distributed enterprise to cost-effectively implement Unified communications across the enterprise.
SBC2000 Series appliance is architected to meet the demands of any size branch office. The appliance can scale to up to 1000 users and the design flexibility allows for future growth in terms of both the number of users as well as the number of applications in future. The modular architecture is designed to support scaling up of digital signal processing capacity and Time Division Multiplexing (TDM) interconnections. The current generation Intel Core i7 based CPU has enough processing power to host third party applications simultaneously.
SBC2000 provides interoperability with SONUS’s VX Series Voice Exchange and Quintum media gateway products while supporting the transparent “drop-in” installation methodology for the upstream deployment model that was pioneered by SONUS. SONUS platforms are specifically designed to support upstream deployments with advanced features that give customers the highest levels of flexibility, scalability, quality of experience (QoE) and investment protection.
The initial software release for the SBC2000 offers powerful QoE features, industry leading voice quality, intelligent call routing, call forking, and comprehensive PBX interoperability. As with SONUS’s VX Series, directory-based call routing is built directly into the SBC platform. The SBC also features a multi-mode user interface that provides configuration and real-time management of SBC nodes. The web-based user interface is designed to simplify and accelerate installation using a “task” configuration mode.
