Session Border Controllers (SBCs)

Overview

AudioCodes’ Mediant session border controllers (SBCs) deliver seamless connectivity, enhanced security and quality assurance for enterprise and service provider VoIP networks.

In the enterprise environment, SBCs form an effective demarcation point between the business’s VoIP network and the service provider’s SIP trunk, performing SIP protocol mediation and media handling (interoperability), and securing the enterprise VoIP network.

In the service provider core, AudioCodes SBCs can function as peering SBCs between operator networks or as access SBCs delivering security and protocol normalization.
