SoftBank, one of Japan's largest tier one carriers, has selected the recently launched Ribbon Protect platform for its advanced ability to provide network traffic monitoring and analytics of real-time communications(RTC) services.

Ribbon Protect is a real time communications security solution that empowers CSPs and enterprises to quickly respond to and mitigate attacks and fraud by performing network-wide data analytics and policy enforcement.

The solution also provides network operations with a centralized and single view of the end-to-end network.

While real-time communications traffic continues to explode, many currently available network planning tools are inadequate, lacking end-to-end visibility into the network and big data-assisted capabilities, making it harder for CSPs to maintain SLAs and QoS for their customers.

While large network providers face complex network management tasks, Ribbon Protect enables SoftBank to gain fast and accurate incident management while supporting their ongoing evolution towards intelligent, automated troubleshooting.

Yasuyuki Haga, Director Voice Core Network, Softbank
Ribbon Protect is the only platform on the market today that provides us with a complete view of our network, while delivering advanced monitoring and intelligent Key Performance Indicator (KPI) capabilities.

Tatsuki Hino, Country Manager for Japan, Ribbon Communications
Network health and security are vital to SoftBank's business and we're confident the platform will deliver the comprehensive monitoring and analytics that enable faster and more accurate decision-making.
