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 assure security, performance, and availability. Service providers of cloud-hosted, unified communications, conferencing and collaboration, and contact center applications benefit from being able to deploy Ribbon’s cloud-native Session Border Controller Software Edition (SBC SWe).

Ribbon's 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.

Deploying Ribbon's SBC SWe on a public cloud provides 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. The public cloud provider handles ongoing maintenance of the cloud infrastructure, reducing operating costs.  Typically, all public cloud resources are available on a subscription basis, delivering flexibility and cost control when scaling SBC capacity.

Ribbon's 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 innovate to enhance performance and high availability, delivering critical capabilities for a virtual SBC.

Ribbon SBC SWe supports Amazon Chime Voice Connector, which is AWS’ new SIP service that offers a secure, global calling service with pay-as-you-go pricing and no upfront fees.  Ribbon’s 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.
