Sonus Enhances Network Border Switch

Sonus Networks launched the latest version of its Network Border Switch designed to deliver secure connectivity between enterprises and operators, as well as secure connectivity between disparate operators' networks. Sonus' Network Border Switch (NBS) is based on the company's GSX9000 platform and provides IP-to-IP border control and PSTN media gateway capabilities -- integrating security, session control and media control. It supports government required capabilities, such as Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA), Government Emergency Telecommunications Service (GETS) and Enhanced 911 or E911.

The latest release of the Sonus NBS includes new features to support direct media, Denial of Service (DoS) protection for access networks and consumer VoIP deployments, advanced encryption support for call set-up, and additional Secure Real Time Protocol (RTP) to protect call content. In addition, the platform upgrade includes new features for advanced management and Operational System Support (OSS) functionality.
