Nokia today launched a new cloud-native Enterprise Session Border Controller (eSBC) that mitigates cyber-attacks, optimizes the use of IP bandwidth for communications and blocks unauthorized access attempts to Unified Communications(UC) and UCaaS for enterprise customers. 

Acting as the gatekeeper of enterprise communications applications, Nokia eSBC software delivers a continual high-quality IP voice and video experience by using call admission control to prevent network overload, and by simplifying and optimizing communication paths in the network.

It also has a built-in WebRTC gateway that delivers communications services directly to smartphones, tablets or any device via a web browser, while retaining protection for signaling and media interfaces.

Nokia said the new eSBC allows enterprises to cost-effectively control, secure and manage media as well as signaling streams that cross the network edges.

It is a cloud-native software solution that runs on popular hypervisors, providing enterprise customers with the latest features and capabilities while allowing them to pay for only what they need, resulting in reduced operational and capital expenses. It also allows them to easily connect all types of PBX, Voice over IP (VoIP), call center and UC systems within their networks.

Bhaskar Gorti, President of Nokia Software
Nokia eSBC gives enterprises the same ultra-high reliability, quality and security that our service provider customers currently enjoy for their communications networks. It delivers a comprehensive set of capabilities that help enterprises protect their business efficiently and cost effectively. 

Irwin Lazar, VP and Service Director, Nemertes Research 
Our 2018 Unified Communications and Collaboration Study shows that more than 35 percent of organizations are now deploying or planning to deploy SBCs as virtual software.
