SBC Software Edition (SBC SWe)

Ribbon's SBC Software Edition (SWe) is identical software to its award-winning SBC 5000 series and SBC 7000 product – without the appliance. Ribbon's virtualization strategy capitalizes on its heritage of enabling secure, reliable and scaleable real-time communications.  With SBC SWe, enterprises have the choice to deploy on any virtual or cloud (private or public) environment without compromising features, scale and performance – with no truck roll.  Enterprises save by not having to spend CapEx for an appliance and gain flexibility by allocating virtual / cloud resources on demand.
