(Nasdaq: SONS), a global leader in secure and intelligent cloud communications, and inContact, the leading provider of cloud contact center software and agent optimization tools, announced today that inContact has selected the Sonus SBC 7000 Session Border Controller (SBC) to handle the growing amount of voice traffic across its global cloud network. With the SBC 7000's market-leading scale, inContact is able to break the traditional stacking methodology of small capacity SBCs and scale up to 150,000 sessions via simple software licenses, increasing time-to-market while reducing operating expenses.
