WESTFORD, Mass., July 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

Key Takeaways:

  • One Source Networks (OSN) is leveraging Sonus' SBC 7000 Session Border Controller (SBC) for its Cloud Lync Enterprise offering—a dedicated and fully managed solution that is now available on a global scale.
  • The Sonus SBC 7000, with the capability to license up to 150,000 sessions, is the highest-capacity Lync 2013 qualified e-SBC solution on the market.
  • Sonus delivers products and solutions that securely enable Microsoft Lync and Skype for Business Voice deployments and is a Microsoft Gold Communications Partner.

Sonus Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: SONS), a global leader in enabling and securing real-time communications, announced today that One Source Networks (OSN), the global Unified Communications (UC) and managed cloud services partner of choice for large enterprises, is utilizing the Sonus SBC 7000 Session Border Controller (SBC) for its global Cloud Lync Enterprise offering. Additionally, the SBC 7000 provides the necessary flexibility and scale to power OSN's Lync Trunking product.

OSN's Cloud Lync Enterprise – Skype for Business is a fully dedicated, cloud-based solution that provides all the feature functionality, privacy and customization of an on-premises Lync solution, delivered as a service. OSN's Lync Trunking offering is one of a handful in the world that has passed advanced Microsoft Secure Real-time Transport Protocol (SRTP) and Transport Layer Security (TLS) testing, providing a single and secure Lync-certified Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) trunking connection over which a range of communications services can be seamlessly delivered, from voice to chat to video. To take advantage of the full capabilities of Lync, it is critical for enterprises to ensure that the service provider's services and devices are Microsoft certified.

The Lync-qualified SBC 7000 brings high scalability—up to 150,000 sessions—with fully enabled media and transcoding features into OSN's Microsoft Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) environments. Delivering capacity without compromise, the SBC 7000 also offers OSN advanced functionality to support emerging services, such as high definition (HD) voice and video, and will effectively address the unprecedented traffic demands these services will place on networks at access and interconnect borders.

The SBC 7000 is purpose-built with industry-leading performance and scale that delivers increased operational efficiency to help service providers and enterprises securely and efficiently handle the massive amount of audio, video, and collaboration traffic crossing their networks.

With the evolution of Microsoft Lync to Skype for Business, Sonus will continue to collaborate with Microsoft on interoperability testing to enable and secure real-time communications in Skype for Business deployments. Sonus will also continue to work with OSN and provide the same no-compromise support that it has delivered for Microsoft Lync with Skype for Business in future engagements.
