XO Deploys Sonus' Network Border Switch

XO Communications has deployed Sonus' Network Border Switch (NBS), an IP-based solution that combines session control, PSTN gateway services and security into a single, high performance, highly scalable, carrier-class solution.

XO's IP voice network carried more than 15 billion minutes of IP voice traffic in 2006, and is currently carrying approximately 1.6 billion minutes of IP voice traffic every month.

  • In August, Sonus unveiled the latest version of its NBS platform, available on both the GSX9000 and GSX 4000 platforms. The new version 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.
