UAE-based telecommunications service provider du has selected Genband's Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) Session Border Controller (SBC) to provide interconnect applications, enabling seamless connectivity between disparate communications networks.

The geo-distributed Virtual Network Function (VNF) SBC running in du’s cloud will combine with Genband's Advanced Media Software (AMS) on the Q50 platform in a hybrid deployment environment, offering the service provider high network resiliency and the opportunity to future-proof its network via a seamless evolution path to a fully virtualized cloud environment.

Genband's SBC VNF, a key component of Genband's NFV software technology, utilizes the latest Intel architecture and software-based media processing capabilities to provide du with advanced independently scalable signaling and media processing functionality. Genband claims that the SBC VNF enables an industry-leading 200K concurrent media sessions and more than 100K transcoded sessions.

Genband's solution also offers fully virtualized software-based centralized element management and analytics, offering du data collection and reporting.

Saleem AlBlooshi, EVP, Infrastructure & Technologym, du
Deploying the Genband Interconnect SBC in a cloud environment gives du significant advantages because of the ease and speed by which virtual instantiations of an SBC can be deployed. This provides elasticity - the ability to have on-demand instantiation of a virtual SBC to match dynamic traffic demands. 

Paul Miller, CTO for Networks, Genband 
Our NFV SBC provides du with a revolutionary architecture that meets their current interconnect demands and seamlessly addresses the ever increasing need for scale.
