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.
