RICHARDSON, Texas, Feb. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Sipera Systems, the leader in real-time Unified Communications (UC) enablement and security, today announced the Sipera E-SBC session border controller (SBC) appliance, the industry's first device for SIP trunk termination to include a unique enterprise VoIP integration module for rapid installation and implementation.
Based on Sipera's deep experience in enterprise SIP deployments supporting hundreds of thousands of users, the E-SBC can be deployed in as little as two hours for typical implementations. Unlike SBCs designed for carriers and repackaged for enterprises, Sipera's E-SBC offers the features needed by enterprises adopting SIP trunks while stripping out the highly complex and difficult to manage components of common SBCs.
Scaling from 20 to 10,000 concurrent sessions, the E-SBC is available for as little as 10 percent of the cost of the market-leading carrier-focused SBCs.
Sipera's E-SBC features:
- Industry standard session border control functionality for terminating SIP trunks and providing demarcation and control at the enterprise edge.
- The SIP Trunk Integration Module (STIM), a powerful, flexible interoperability framework that dramatically simplifies the interface with the enterprise UC servers and IP-PBXs.
- A simple upgrade path to implement the full Sipera UC-Sec security appliance, providing VoIP and UC firewalling, and the industry's best protection against VoIP toll fraud and UC intrusion.
An enterprise deploying the E-SBC can upgrade to the UC-Sec and gain advanced functionality such as encryption to all endpoints, UC firewalling, full UC proxy functionality, access control and advanced user authentication, signaling and media forking for compliance, signature-based intrusion and threat mitigation, and active policy enforcement for all UC traffic.
"SIP trunks are a highly economical way for enterprises to adopt greater flexibility and efficiency in their communications operations, and Sipera is a trusted partner in the simple and rapid adoption of SIP trunks by enterprises around the world," said John Lochow, CEO of Sipera. "Sipera's E-SBC is a true, highly cost-effective enterprise SBC that dramatically simplifies the deployment and management of SIP trunks, with the industry's most advanced integration with the enterprise VoIP and UC environment."
