Netaxis voice connectivity solutions for Telecoms service providers: A decade of experience

For over a decade, Netaxis has been at the forefront of implementing SBC solutions for service providers of many leading SBC vendors.

In the rapidly evolving telecommunications landscape, service providers face the continual challenge of delivering reliable and efficient voice connectivity solutions to their customers. A critical component of this infrastructure is the Session Border Controller (SBC). For over a decade, Netaxis has been at the forefront of implementing SBC solutions for service providers of many leading SBC vendors.

In recent years, with the increasing demand for simplified management of complex infrastructure, Netaxis introduced their innovative SBC as a Service (SBCaaS) offering. This service, developed in collaboration with Oracle, represents a significant advancement in voice connectivity solutions, providing not only standard functionalities but also unique features that address modern regulatory and operational needs.

The Session Border Controller (SBC): a key network element

A Session Border Controller (SBC) is a vital network element in both telecommunications networks and enterprise environments. In a network context, an SBC manages and secures IP communications sessions. It sits at the border of a network, controlling the signaling and media streams involved in setting up, conducting, and tearing down calls or other interactive media communications. The primary functions and drawback of an SBC include:

  • Security: Protecting the network from DoS attacks, fraud, and other threats.
  • Quality of Service (QoS): Ensuring that voice and video communications maintain high quality.
  • Regulatory Compliance: Implementing features such as lawful intercept and emergency call handling.
  • Interoperability: Bridging different protocols and codecs used by various network elements.
  • The drawback : Managing SBC’s is a complex task that requires high level of expertise.

For enterprise customers, an SBC serves a similar role, ensuring secure and reliable VoIP communications within corporate networks and between corporate networks and external parties.

As cloud Unified Communications (UC) solutions become more complex, SBCs will play further an increasingly pivotal role. They act as key demarcation points, managing the interaction between various UC cloud services/applications and ensuring seamless, secure, and high-quality communication. This growing complexity necessitates more advanced SBC capabilities to handle diverse and dynamic network conditions, including advanced routing. SBCs will continue to be essential for modern UC environments.
