Feb 04, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
Sangoma Technologies Corporation, a provider of hardware and software components that enable IP communications systems for both voice and data, has announced the general availability of the Vega Enterprise SBC series and the NetBorder Carrier SBC, or session border controller, products.
The new line of SBC solutions includes stand-alone devices and solutions for implementation in Virtual Machine (VM) environments. Sangoma introduced four new SBC models. The first model, the Vega Enterprise SBC, is a rack-mountable 1u appliance that scales to provide 25 to 500 SIP sessions and includes Sangoma's hardware-based transcoding engine to ensure maximum session capacity under any load condition.
The second model, the Vega Enterprise SBC VM/Software, is a fully-compiled software application suitable for operation in a standard VM environment. The Vega Enterprise SBC VM/Software supports from 25 to 200 sessions and leverages the high-reliability, operational flexibility, and hardware redundancy inherent in a VM environment to deliver unparalleled IP-to-IP security and performance.
The Vega Enterprise SBC VM/Hybrid, the third member of Sangoma's SBC family, is a platform that includes scalable session capacity from 25 to 4000 sessions, and ensures high performance by routing all media connections through an external hardware-based transcoding resource. The Hybrid solution takes advantage of all of the benefits of a VM environment, with all SBC functionality being performed by the VM instantiation, without placing unnecessary load on the processor with CPU-intensive transcoding operations, the company said.
"The Vega Enterprise SBC VM/Software product was very simple to deploy in our VM environment, and is the first SBC we've identified to support one-hundred percent of the features of our IP-PBX," said Chris Rawlings, CEO of BlueCloud Consultants, a prominent provider of VoIP services and IT consulting in the Mid-Atlantic region. "Sangoma's reputation for quality and support was certainly proven in our experience. In addition, the pricing and licensing models ensure that we provide the highest-quality and reliability to our customers at a very competitive price."
According to the company, the NetBorder Carrier SBC is designed to address the operational needs of wide area carriers, including traditional ISPs, as well as SIP Trunking and cloud services providers. This hardened 1u rack-mounted chassis includes optional redundant AC or DC power supplies, a RAID 1 solid state drive, and supports from 400 to 4000 unique sessions with hardware-based transcoding. A linear-cost session licensing model ensures predictable cost modeling, and the NetBorder Carrier SBC provides unmatched session capacity in a 1u footprint.
