SBC on the Public Cloud

Delivering cloud-hosted, real-time communication services from a public cloud, like Amazon Web Services (AWS), needs an SBC to ensure security, performance, and availability. Service providers of cloud-hosted applications such as: unified communications; conferencing and collaboration; and contact centers benefit from being able to deploy Ribbon’s cloud-native Session Border Controller Software Edition (SBC SWe).

The SBC SWe provides robust interworking for multiple signaling protocols, call admission control to manage traffic levels, and multiple security features to protect privacy and ensure regulatory compliance.

By deploying the SBC SWe on a public cloud, you:

  • Achieve much faster time-to-market than having to procure, install, and implement the compute, networking and storage infrastructure for a virtual SBC on a private cloud.
  • Reduce operating costs by eliminates the need for ongoing maintenance of the cloud infrastructure because the public cloud provider handles this now.
  • Gain flexibility and cost control when scaling SBC capacity, because public cloud resources are available on a subscription basis.

The SBC SWe is available on the AWS Marketplace making it simple to access, instantiate and deploy on AWS. Similarly, the SBC SWe is also available as an AWS Quick Start, making it very simple to implement the SBC SWe and an Asterisk server in a preset configuration to do testing in a very rapid time period.

The Ribbon SBC SWe is already deployed on AWS with additional public clouds available for proof of concept trials. Ribbon has an ongoing collaboration with AWS to continuously innovate to enhance performance and high availability, delivering critical capabilities for a virtual SBC

The SBC SWe supports Amazon Chime Voice Connector, which is AWS’ most recent SIP service that offers a secure, global calling service with pay-as-you-go pricing and no upfront fees. The SBC SWe provides Amazon Chime customers security, high availability and interoperability for Voice over IP (VoIP) traffic being sent to and from Amazon Chime Voice Connector
