FRAFOS ABC SBC Selected by Telio Telecom of Norway to Expand its VoIP Services
The introduction of Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) and Session Border Controllers (SBC) in IP communications has all but destroyed what is left of PSTN networks. With hosted solutions, even the smallest organizations can access enterprise grade communications services with bespoke amenities designed to meet their specific needs. This has led businesses to look for solutions with incredible flexibility and the option to scale at will, which is pushing telecoms to search for and deploy technologies capable of delivering on this need. One of these operators is Telio Telecom of Norway, provider of VoIP services in Scandinavia and the Netherlands, by announcing it is deploying the FRAFOS ABC SBC to expand and improve the security of its VoIP service expansion.
As a developer of SBC and WebRTC solutions, FRAFOS was chosen because of the flexibility, performance and support its platform provides operators. For companies that deliver telephony services using Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), the FRAFOS ABC SBC offers tools for integrating a wide range of web applications, such as WebRTC, and customized solutions with support.
The integration of media applications with its SBC features are especially useful in today’s media centric environment. With selfies, YouTube, social media, videoconferencing and other rich media platforms in the market place, service providers have to integrate all of these features seamlessly.
The ABC SBC platform reduces the load and cost of using VoIP application servers for media services, so operators can provide reliable access without interruptions, and having to route the call through the operator’s VoIP components.
“Stream lining call flows in a complex VoIP environment has always been an enormous challenge – with the ABC SBC we found a powerful and performant tool to help us to accomplish our goals in a tough market,” said Andreas Kaschner, Vice President Network Operations, Telio Telecom AS.
The ABC session border controller offers secure session border control, signaling mediation and call routing to address the business and network requirements of VoIP and NGN service providers. According to the company, it is the first SBC with the capability to scale horizontally as well as vertically with either the number of used installations or the performance of the used hardware.
The features it provides operators include:
- GUI based management
- System and network monitoring
- SIP session control and manipulation
- Registration offloading
- Border security
- SNMP V2 alarms and status information
- WebRTC support
“With the ABC SBC VoIP service providers and enterprises deploy a scalable session border controller that was designed to run on top of high end hardware as well as appliances and virtual machines.” said Berthold Butscher, CEO, FRAFOS.
