Ribbon’s Session Border Controller Software Edition Edge (SBC SWe Edge) embodies Ribbon’s innovation, knowledge, and expertise in a cloud solution.

Optimized resource allocation, dynamic scaling, and automated lifecycle management are all attributes of the SBC SWe Edge, delivering edge SBC capabilities such as robust network security, overload controls, SIP normalization, SIP Recording, IPv4-IPv6 interworking, and audio transcoding.

The SBC SWe Edge provides interworking, security, and survivability for hosted Unified Communications and Collaboration solutions and is certified for Microsoft Teams, ZoomTM, and BroadSoftTM, making it the ideal component for a managed services provider to deploy in their cloud or as a managed universal customer premises equipment (uCPE).

The SBC SWe Edge scales up and down cost-effectively, starting with a very small resource footprint of one CPU and one GB of RAM, to support 100 concurrent SIP sessions.

Delivering Microsoft Teams Survivability

The SBC SWe Edge supports Microsoft Survivable Branch Appliance (SBA). With SBA, Microsoft Teams users are able to make and receive calls to/from the public telephone network if Microsoft 365 becomes unavailable. Microsoft’s SBA services provide an additional level of resiliency and provides another way for service providers to add value to a managed Microsoft Teams offer.

Microsoft SBA services are tightly integrated into the SBC SWe Edge's 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.

Ribbon’s Appliance-Based SBC Alternative on the Enterprise Premises

If required, to meet specific enterprise requirements, Ribbon also offers two appliance-based edge SBCs that run the same software as the SBC SWe Edge.

Ribbon’s SBC 1000 and SBC 2000 Session Border Controllers are alternative options to deliver security and interoperability when accessing cloud-based services. The SBC 1000 and SBC 2000 include multiple options to integrate traditional telecom devices via analog, BRI and T1/E1 ports. Both SBCs also include capabilities to maintain communications access if a WAN link is lost or a cloud service is unavailable.

Both SBCs are also certified for Microsoft Teams, Zoom Phone BYOC, and BroadSoftTM.

Like the SBC SWe Edge, these appliances can be configured and managed by Ribbon Application Management Platform. And like the SBC SWe Edge, if RAMP is not used for configuration, a built-in deployment wizard is pre-populated with popular PBXs, cloud UC services and service provider configurations so deployment can be as simple as point and click.
