Brazilian-based multiservice provider, Algar Telecom has selected the Sonus Session Border Controller Software Edition (SBC SWe) to support the nationwide expansion of its SIP peering and SIP trunking services. 

With this cloud-native solution, Algar will have network-wide sharing of SBC session licenses and the ability to dynamically allocate SBC capacity anywhere in the country.

With the Sonus SBC SWe, Algar will be able to quickly expand its SIP services footprint throughout the country without deploying new hardware.

The Sonus SBC SWe and its associated Sonus Insight Element Management System (EMS) will be deployed as Virtual Network Functions (VNFs) in Algar's network. This aligns with Algar's future-forward push toward a Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) architecture, a common goal among telecommunications companies in the CALA region.

As global service providers continue to migrate real-time communications to NFV and cloud environments, the Sonus SBC SWe provides a cloud-native approach for SIP session management, interworking, security and resiliency that delivers the same robust experience and feature set as hardware-based SBCs.

Rogerio Garchet, Chief Marketing Officer, Algar Telecom
As a technology services provider, we have to be to be at the forefront of technology. We believe that network virtualization is the future, and that Sonus is the best and most reliable platform to deliver that future today.

Federico Navaro, VP, CALA Sales, Sonus 
By moving to a completely virtualized SIP solution, Algar Telecom is in a unique position to quickly and cost-effectively expand its footprint across a very large region.
