Session Border Controllers Overview
Session Border Controllers (SBCs) work behind the scenes to ensure that voice, video and data communications flow smoothly and securely between networks and the people who use them.
Microsoft Direct Routing for Enterprises and Businesses
Ribbon SBCs, certified for Direct Routing for Microsoft Teams, are flexible enough to support single-site secondary education through nationwide higher education operations with tens of thousands of users. They have a versatile applications solution module, providing connection to the Microsoft Phone System, Active Directory integration, and branch survivability. In addition to hardware-centric solutions such as the SBC 1000, 2000, and 5000, Ribbon’s virtual SBC, SWe Lite, (available either cloudbased from the Azure Marketplace or running as a VNF on a corporate server) is a cost-efficient and powerful solution for securing real-time communications (RTC).
Ribbon SBCs are your line of defense against telephony related attacks such as Denial of Service and toll fraud. Key capabilities include:
- Topology hiding (Back-to-back user agent)
- DoS and DDoS policers
- TLS/SRTP Encryption
- Malformed packet protection

Ribbon Analytics and Ribbon Protect
The Ribbon Analytics platform empowers education to effectively monitor and respond to cyberattacks, fraud, and network operational issues. It’s a virtualized solution that quickly and easily integrates with your existing RTC network investments. Ribbon Protect, a component of the Ribbon Analytics platform, receives information from various network elements – such as Ribbon SBCs and other 3rd party communication network devices - and analyzes it for various RTC security breaches and service quality issues. The Ribbon Analytics portfolio allows you to view end-to-end call flows, diagnose service quality issues, as well as make automated security enforcement decisions based on quantitative RTC network information. Using Ribbon Protect, these decisions can be pushed to any “enforcer” anywhere in the networkDownload Brochure
