ADTRAN Adds Session Border Control Capability to Enterprise Gateways

ADTRAN has added Session Border Control (SBC) software functionality to its NetVanta 3430 and 6000 series, as well as Total Access 900e IP Business Gateways.

The SBC capability gives service providers a new demarcation device to handle normalization, security and monitoring for their SIP trunking services. Specifically, the NetVanta and Total Access devices with the SBC features will handle NAT/firewall traversal, VoIP protocol interworking, transcoding, media anchoring and provide numerous service provider troubleshooting tools. By moving this functionality to the edge of the enterprise network, service providers can more easily integrate directly with a wide variety of IP PBX vendors’ SIP trunking implementations.

In addition, ADTRAN said its new SBC functionality combined with Total Access 900e IP Business Gateways will enable service providers to offer a customer migration path as the proliferation of IP continues into the foreseeable future.
