Sonus SBC Now Miercom Performance Verified
Cloud communications are all the rage today. Enabling a new era of possibility, the cloud is a key component driving a run of digital transformation revolutionizing communications – from network architecture to end user experience. Today’s communications solutions must be flexible, feature-rich and secure, capable of providing engaging and user friendly experiences along the way.
Today, Sonus announced that Miercom verified the security and performance of the Sonus SBC 5400, providing organizations added peace of mind when deploying and using the solution.
"Test results confirm the Sonus SBC 5400 offers exceptional performance and impressive scalability for large enterprise or service provider networks," said Robert Smithers, CEO of Miercom. "With sustainable call capacity, sophisticated transcoding, effective DoS deflection and high availability, we are pleased to recognize the Sonus SBC 5400 as a superior product and award it the Miercom Performance Verified certification."
Upon investigation, the Sonus SBC passed the test with flying colors. SBC 5400 offers easy expansion of up to 75,000 concurrent sessions with the upgraded software license. The robust security proved successful in defending the system against DoS attacks, without any legitimate business calls dropping. Another point of note, while much of the competition loses up to half capacity when encrypting VoIP, the SBC 5400 is capable of supporting just as many normal unencrypted sessions as encrypted secure RTP sessions.
"We strive to deliver products and services to our customers that provide the highest level of performance and security," said Shambhu Rai, Principle Product Manager, Sonus. "The Sonus SBC 5400 was architected with this mission in mind and this certification is proof of that we have accomplished our goal. Customers now have Miercom's assurance that the entire Sonus SBC Core portfolio performs with industry leading results."
Migrating networks to the next generation of IP-based communications systems can quickly turn into a headache, but with the Miercom Performance verification, firms can rest assured that selecting the SBC 5400 means reliable, secure and exceptional performance.
