Sangoma Session Border Controllers
It is integral to not to forget the importance of an SBC when switching from a legacy phone system to VoIP and simply use an existing firewall for protection, this is often a huge mistake! A typical firewall can only protect the data network and as soon as the internet is open, which is how you connect to VoIP services, the entire network is exposed. The other pitfall of using an existing firewall, instead of an SBC, is that phone calls may not connect or there will be audio issues. A Sangoma SBC will automatically do the call translations for a business, with the built-in interoperability features and also translate the audio with built-in transcoding capabilities.
Both SMB (Small-to-Medium Business) or Large Enterprises, have a Session Border Controller that is tailored, from 5-4,000 sessions, our on-premise appliances feature an intuitive webgui for full routing and security configuration, monitoring, security and debugging, along with on-board transcoding for guaranteed interoperability with ITSPs and PBXs. It’s imperative to protect the network from DDOS attacks, Toll Fraud, and all other VoiP threats with a Sangoma SBC.
