SBC

Prepare, Protect & Provide with Sangoma SBCs

There’s a lot to consider at the moment. With a hope of returning to the office on the horizon, hybrid working and the ISDN switch off looming, ensuring your solutions are future-proof should be a top priority.

PREPARE for the ISDN Switch off

Customers reluctant to switch over to SIP

Inserting an SBC with TDM enables calls to flow in and out of the PSTN – the SBC will act as a pure gateway converting SIP to ISDN.

PROTECT – With Sangoma’s Hybrid SBC products you can offer an all-in-one solution. Incorporating the features and security benefits of an SBC combined with a gateway, these devices are a great way to future proof systems. To convert a Sangoma SBC into a hybrid solution, you will need to install a Sangoma TDM card (i.e. a101, a102, a104) into an enterprise-grade SBC appliance.

PROVIDE flexibility as a business throughout from remote working to changing your strategy on communications.

Customers who decide to use SIP Trunking

Hybrid SBCs offer a cost advantage and provide more flexibility. In this instance, the SBC makes routing decisions based on cost, configuration or availability.

Customers looking to accommodate hybrid workers

Support for remote workers and local IP phones can all be hosted from a Sangoma SBC.

How to Make Yours and Your Customers Network Secure for Remote Working

It’s predicted that home working will more than double compared to pre-pandemic levels when restrictions ease. With that in mind, there couldn’t be a better time to ensure yours and your partners’ networks are secure and prepared for remote workers.

How to Make Your Network Secure for Remote Working

Sangoma’s SBC range are the perfect solution to securing VoIP networks not just for yourself, but for your customers too. Remote worker soft phone applications and the rise of UC solutions mean a greater variety of media need to securely use the network which can sometimes expose unfamiliar or unknown vulnerabilities. SBCs provide a number of services to make VoIP/UC systems more secure and better able to integrate SIP-based equipment from a variety of vendors. What’s more with features such as SIP over TLS and SRTP you can enable end-to-end encryption for voice traffic and provide a solution for SIP ALG problems on most modern routers.

When it comes to remote workers, you’ll want to be sure that while allowing remote access to the PBX and UC applications, you are not effectively opening the door for toll-fraud and other attacks by simply opening ports in the data firewall. Sitting on the edge of a VoIP network, an SBC will only allow authorised endpoints used by remote workers to access the network.

Take Control with Sangoma SBCs

You may already be familiar with Session Border Controllers, but have you considered the opportunities they could offer to you and your customers?

What exactly is an SBC?

In its simplest sense, SBCs act like a firewall specifically designed for VoIP and UC systems. Traditional firewalls are great for creating a barrier around corporate networks, but they’re not so ideal when it comes to determining what traffic to block, which could result in important phone calls being missed. With an SBC, you have much greater control over VoIP and SIP systems, enabling you to recognise and stop suspicious behaviour, this can also be useful in the current climate where there’s a lot of remote workers using their own devices.

Who are SBCs good for?

SBCs are ideal for smaller ITSPs, telephone system installers, VoIP engineers and IT managers looking to protect their voice networks against malicious attacks and/or looking to increase profit opportunities by providing an improved service to your customers. With features such as load balancing, transcoding and least cost routing you can offer an improved, reliable service which is optimised to provide a resilient solution for your customers. This can help to reduce technical support time and increase your customer attachment rate. Whether you’re operating via a cloud-based system, a SIP trunking system or connecting remote workers to a corporate phone system, SBCs offer a range of benefits.
