Sonus Session Border Controller Software Edition Receives 2014 Unified Communications Product of the Year Award

Sonus Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: SONS), a global leader in SIP communications, today announced that TMC, a global, integrated media company, named the Sonus Session Border Controller Software edition (Sonus SBC SWe) a 2014 Unified Communications Product of the Year winner. The award honors the best, most innovative UC products and solutions released in the last year by INTERNET TELEPHONY.

The SBC SWe is the industry’s first software-based Session Border Controller (SBC) architected to deliver unlimited scalability with the same advanced features and functionality of the Sonus SBC 5000 Series on a virtualized platform. The only difference between the Sonus SBC SWe and the Sonus SBC 5000 Series is how customers choose to deploy it. Customers can choose between deploying the SBC SWe on industry-standard servers or in virtualized environments. Architected to be scalable from as few as 25 to an unlimited number of sessions, the user-defined scope of the SBC SWe allows Sonus customers to choose where they reside on the performance curve. Sonus provides customers with a set of performance specifications for their host platforms, enabling customers to rapidly expand capacity, calls per second (cps), features, transcoding and security capabilities with a simple license key as business demands change.

The SBC SWe can be readily deployed into existing virtualized infrastructure. The portability and flexibility of the SBC SWe solution makes it the ideal choice for service providers and enterprises that have invested in virtualization technology, prefer pre-packaged “solutions in a box,” require remote network deployments or want to expand opportunities into new geographic markets where deploying a hardware solution would be impractical or cost prohibitive.

Leveraging the same hardened code base across its hardware and software SBC portfolio gives Sonus customers complete investment protection and peace of mind about the security of their communications network. The SBC SWe provides defense against Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) network threats, Denial of Service (DoS)/Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks and Real-Time Transport Protocol (RTP) messages.

Quotes:

“The Sonus SBC SWe represents Sonus’ continued commitment to helping businesses communicate smarter, faster and more collaboratively, specifically by providing the security features, session control and interworking services,” said David Tipping, vice president and general manager, SBC Business, Sonus. “Innovation is a cornerstone attribute of Sonus, and we are honored to be recognized by TMC.”

“I am excited to proclaim Sonus as a 2014 recipient of TMC’s Unified Communications Product of the Year Award for its innovative product, the Sonus SBC SWe,” said Rich Tehrani, chief executive officer, TMC. “Our judges were very impressed with the ingenuity and excellence displayed by Sonus in its groundbreaking work on the Sonus SBC SWe.”

Most of today’s hardware manufacturers are building servers with at least one SATA Port, but not every systems engineer utilizes them. This is considered a loss in the game of maximizing potential storage space in a fixed unit. The SATADOM Series was created by Innodisk as a high-performance, small form factor boot drive with low power consumption to be plugged into the unused SATA port on your server board as an alternative to hard drive or USB boot-up. Built for 1U systems, this powerful device is smaller than a one dollar coin, and frees up otherwise dead space on your motherboard. To meet the requirements of tomorrow’s cloud hardware, Innodisk invested internal R&D resources to develop our SATA III series of products. The SATA III SATADOM boasts 500/180MBs R/W Speeds respectively, or double R/W Speed of SATA II products.
