SBC Software Edition Lite

The Ribbon Session Border Controller Software Edition Lite (SBC SWe Lite) is a virtualized SBC designed to provide small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) interworking, security and survivability for hosted unified communications. The relatively small resource footprint of SWe Lite supports 100 concurrent SIP sessions with just one CPU and one GB of RAM. These are secure, encrypted sessions that can be used to support business communications. More sessions can be supported by simply applying more resources. This flexibility makes SWe Lite and ideal component of universal customer premises equipment (uCPE) offerings.

SWe Lite supports remote installation and feature activation via a simple license key. It can be deployed and updated without the need for on-site technicians or disruption to operations during peak business hours. The SBC SWe Lite shares a common code base with the Miercom “Performance Verified” SBC 1000 and SBC 2000 products. It interworks with a wide variety of third party SIP voice infrastructure devices/services while providing reliable, scalable performance that ensures maximum service availability.

Microsoft Survivable Branch Appliance Support

Enable Teams users to make and receive calls to/from the public telephone network if Microsoft 365 becomes unreachable. Microsoft’s Survivable Branch Appliance (SBA) capabilities are delivered as fully virtualized software in concert with the SBC SWe Lite. Microsoft’s SBA services provide an additional level of resiliency and provide another way for service providers to add value to a managed Microsoft Teams offer. Microsoft SBA services are tightly integrated into the SBC SWe Lite’s Easy Configuration Wizard, making set-up and administration as simple as point and click. Ribbon eliminates any SBA related command line administration or stand-alone security certificate management. Learn more by downloading the SBA datasheet.
