The Sonus SBC 1000™ Session Border Controller

Communications devices are growing smaller and smarter, so we made a session border controller (SBC) that was smaller and smarter, too.

The Sonus SBC 2000 is an advanced SBC designed to help medium-sized enterprise networks safely and cost-effectively embrace the new world of SIP-based communications, such as Voice over IP (VoIP). The SBC 2000 delivers all of the features you would expect from the Sonus family of SBCs, including robust security, high availability and proven interoperability with leading business The Sonus SBC 2000 solutions like Microsoft Lync Server. The Sonus SBC 2000 also does something you wouldn’t expect: It allows calls to go through even when your WAN goes down, through its unique Survivable Branch Appliance functionality. The SBC 2000 configurations are designed for ease of deployment and growth. Session and T1/E1 port expansion is remotely enabled via a simple license, minimizing the need for a truck roll and on-site technician.
