Session Border Controllers - Product Reviews

Session border controllers are racing to keep up with VoIP market growth and ease the transition to all-SIP environments

Session border controllers (SBCs) have become important elements as the VoIP market makes huge gains. SBCs offer security, quality of service (QoS), statistics reporting and flow prioritization. Plus, they can handle regulatory requirements like emergency calls. SBCs should be fast, with low latency and high availability. Drivers pushing ever more functional and intelligent SBCs are security concerns, service reach maximization, SLA assurance and regulatory compliance, along with cost management.

As the VoIP market continues to grow, ever more SBC devices are needed to handle the increasing traffic volume. Some providers pair SBCs with existing media gateways for hybrid products, and integrating IP routers with SBCs often makes sense, as they are both located at the same spot. As organizations move toward all-SIP (session initiation protocol) to control communication sessions, SBCs have become invaluable as protocol translation devices to achieve VoIP interoperability. 

Best-in-Class Session Border Controller Features:

  • Offers integrated self-protection features, high availability and browser-based configuration and call tracing
  • Clusters SBCs and manages them as one to meet increasing numbers of sessions and provides adaptive load balancing for subscribers
  • Provides secure management tools, with reporting, logging and dynamic configuration change capabilities

Top Considerations before Buying Session Border Controller Products:

Cutting-edge SBC functionality can be run in a variety of form factors, and SBCs can be clustered to manage ever-growing numbers of session requests. Look for advanced routing and policy engines, as well as subscriber load balancing. SBCs may slowly be transitioning into parts of larger solutions, and in the future may be embedded and run on a blade or appliance. Some softswitch vendors have built-in SBC capabilities though full integration may wait until a move to an entirely IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS)-based architecture.

Session Border Controllers
Definition: A session border controller (SBC) is a device used in some Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) networks to exert control over the signaling and usually also the media streams involved in setting up, conducting, and tearing down telephone calls or other interactive media communications.
