Data Connection Announces Session Border Controller Software

Data Connection Limited (DCL) began offering Session Border Controller (DC-SBC) software solution for developers of softswitches, routers, gateways, firewalls, and IP PBXs, as well as standalone session border controllers. SBCs are a set of functions that control session-based traffic at the signaling and packet layers, allowing increased security and enhanced features to be deployed in a VoIP network.

The new DC-SBC source code enables OEMs to offer service providers Session Border Controller (SBC) functionality as a software upgrade to platforms already installed in their networks. System vendors benefit by providing platforms with increased service and security capabilities but at reduced development costs and time-to-market.

"SBC features and services are absolutely essential in VoIP networking but are not addressed by the incumbent platforms that provide the foundation of these networks. This fact, combined with the explosion of VoIP services, has created huge demand for SBC functionality which is best served by legacy softswitches and routers," said Phil McConnell, CEO of Data Connection.
