Session Border Controller Software Edition (SBC SWe)
Ribbon's SBC SWe embodies Ribbon’s innovation, knowledge and expertise in a cloud-native solution.
Microservices design to optimize resource allocation, dynamic scaling, automated lifecycle management, are all attributes of the SBC SWe, delivering carrier-grade SBC capabilities such as robust network security, sophisticated routing and policy management, overload controls, SIP normalization, SIP Recording, IPv4-IPv6 interworking, and audio transcoding.
Use the SBC SWe to meet or exceed the demanding requirements you have for SIP trunking, Network-Network Interconnect, Unified Communications as a Service, Contact Center as a Service, or just to migrate from TDM to IP peering.
With the SBC SWe you can take advantage of NVIDIA’s Graphical Processing Units (GPUs) to perform audio codec transcoding achieving the highest scalability with the lowest cost/transcode in any cloud environment.
In addition, SBC SWe Call Detail Records and KPIs are key inputs for Ribbon Analytics to assist network operators with robocall and fraud detection and mitigation.
The SBC SWe has the following certifications:
- Microsoft Teams, Skype for Business
- JITC and FIPS-140-2 for the US Federal Government

Insight Element Management System (EMS)
Management for the SBC SWe is performed using Ribbon’s Insight EMS, which delivers a complete FCAPS (Fault, Configuration, Accounting, Performance, and Security) solution. Insight EMS offers a mature, feature-rich management system providing a simple-to-use, graphical user interface and accelerated provisioning and management processes.
Insight EMS can be deployed as a standalone system, in a high-availability configuration for maximum system uptime, or in a geographic redundant configuration for site disaster recovery. Insight EMS can be instantiated as a virtual instance running on VMware or KVM, as a Virtual Network Function in an OpenStack cloud environment, or on AWS to take advantage of public cloud infrastructure.
