Session Border Gateway

Find the “right” combination of scale, performance, and reliability for your real-time communications network and services

SBC 1000

SBC 1000

Organizations are rapidly adopting cloud communications, whether it be Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS), Microsoft Teams or SIP Trunks to connect premises PBX equipment. Ribbon’s SBC 1000 and SBC 2000 Session Border Controllers provide market-leading security and interoperability elements
to simplify access to secure cloud-based services. The SBC 1000 and SBC 2000 include multiple options to integrate traditional telecom devices via analogue, BRI and T1/E1 ports. They also include impactful capabilities to maintain communications access if a WAN link is lost or a cloud service is unavailable.

Beyond their industry-renowned security services, the SBC 1000 and SBC 2000 are independently verified for performance and designed to eliminate interoperability issues between different VoIP products and networks. Ribbon has been working closely with Microsoft for more than a decade, so it should come as no surprise that both products are Microsoft certified for Microsoft Direct Routing.

The SBC 1000 and SBC 2000 are also certified with Zoom™, BroadSoft™, Yealink® , Poly® and tested with other popular services and products. A built-in deployment wizard is pre-populated with popular PBXs, cloud UC services and service provider configurations so deployment can be as simple as point and click. Most importantly, the SBC 1000 and SBC 2000 have been successfully deployed tens of thousands of times to secure communications for organizations of all sizes across the globe.

Key Capabilities

SBC 2000

SBC 2000

Communications devices are growing smaller and smarter, so Ribbon Communications designed a Session Border Controller (SBC) that was smaller and smarter, too. The SBC 2000 Session Border Controller is an advanced SBC independently verified for performance, delivering robust security features and interoperability between disparate networks. The SBC 2000 configurations are designed for ease of deployment and growth. Both session and port expansion can be remotely enabled via a simple license, eliminating the need for a truck-roll and an on-site technician. The Ribbon SBC 2000 also features a wide range of I/O and call capacities as well as built-in survivability for Microsoft® Skype® for Business, Polycom®, BroadSoft™, and other SIP/TDM/FX clients, so calls go through even if the wide area network (WAN) goes down. The SBC 2000 is certified for Direct Routing with Microsoft Teams.

SWE Lite

SWe Lite

The Ribbon SBC SWe Lite derives its feature set from a common code base with the Tolly® certified and Miercom® performance verified SBC SWe, SBC 1000 and SBC 2000 products. As such, customers can expect the same advantages when transitioning to UC or SIP trunking — an SBC that protects your voice infrastructure from Denial of Service (DoS)/Distributed DOS (DDoS) attacks, maintains privacy, encrypts your calls, and interworks with a wide variety of third-party SIP and legacy voice infrastructure
devices/services, all while providing reliable, scalable performance that ensures maximum uptime and service availability.

By offering the same management and provisioning interface as the Ribbon SBC 1000/SBC 2000, the SBC SWe Lite dramatically speeds configuration through the simple and highly intuitive configuration wizard. To this, the SBC SWe Lite adds the media plane features of the SBC SWe, the SBC of choice deployed
and trusted by the largest service providers and enterprises worldwide to ensure VoIP security and interoperability. The SBC SWe Lite also offers an extremely compact CPU, RAM and program data store footprint uniquely positioned for highly constrained uCPE (universal CPE) processing environments.
The result is clear: customers significantly reduce the costs and complexities of deploying SBC services in support of UC/SIP trunking.
