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 – just without the appliance.

Ribbon's virtualization strategy capitalizes on its heritage of enabling secure, reliable and scaleable real-time communications.  With the cloud native SBC SWe, service providers can be sure they will be able to deliver secure real-time communications on almost any virtual or cloud environment without compromising scale and performance – and without needing a truck roll.

Use the SBC SWe to meet or exceed the demanding requirements you have for SIP trunking, Network-Network Interconnect, Unified Communications as a Service, or Contact Center as a Service.  Use the SBC SWe to simplify migrate from TDM to IP peering and even offer the SBC as a Service to enterprise customers.
