Industry Analyst GlobalData Highlights TelcoBridges’ FreeSBC Technology, Addressing the Needs of Agile Telecom Service Providers
Montreal, Canada: May 22, 2018 – TelcoBridges, the leading designer and manufacturer of carrier-grade Tmedia VoIP gateways and the FreeSBC virtual session border controller, today announced that Telecommunications market research firm GlobalData has profiled TelcoBridges’ FreeSBC technology and business model in its recent Market Disruptor Report.
In the report, GlobalData cites how the FreeSBC provides Tier 2 and Tier 3 Service Providers with an ideal opportunity to implement a long-desired shift in their spending models. The report details how the FreeSBC addresses a gap in the SBC marketplace, by providing agile service providers with a CAPEX-free alternative to diversify their supplier base and more nimbly adopt best-of-breed SBC solutions.
The report illustrates the platform-agnostic nature of the FreeSBC, which runs on any combination of VMware, OpenStack, Amazon/AWS and bare metal servers. It also discusses how the FreeSBC can scale both up and down, supporting anywhere from 100 to 60,000 sessions per server, with support for 1,100 completed sessions per second (CSPS) and up to 6,000 session attempts per second (SAPS).
“There is a significant market opportunity for SBC applications that legacy SBC providers find difficult to support, and many of these opportunities remain un-addressed – because of the CAPEX shock factor that comes with switching to a new supplier,” said GlobalData’s John Byrne. “TelcoBridges is an established and well-respected player in the telecom equipment and software market, and its new FreeSBC offering is well positioned to address these market opportunities.”
GlobalData’s report spells out how the ability to adopt a virtual SBC with no (or extremely low) upfront costs enables operators to take a stepwise approach to full-fledged virtual SBC adoption. Service Providers can earmark the FreeSBC for specific niche applications, while existing physical SBCs can remain on the job for other requirements. The report cites TelcoBridges’ plans to add incremental functionality into the FreeSBC, to enable a seamless migration for customers.
The FreeSBC is just one component of TelcoBridges’ portfolio of carrier-grade solutions. A wide array of optional paid services and extensions are available, including 24/7 support, analytics for troubleshooting, fraud detection, call removal and more. Support for transcoding is made possible via optional IP-based DSP hardware resources, which are sold in various capacities.
Earlier this month, TelcoBridges announced that more than 3 million FreeSBC session licenses have been downloaded from customers in 59 countries around the globe. “This overwhelming response shows how strong the demand is for a scalable, reliable and fully featured SBC that can be deployed without upfront costs,” said TelcoBridges’ Senior Director of Product Marketing Alan Percy.
TelcoBridges’ FreeSBC session border controller is the industry’s first free virtual session border controller from a brand name telecom equipment manufacturer. FreeSBC protects networks from DoS and DDoS attacks while offering outstanding session handling performance. The technology is available for free download on VMware™, OpenStack™ and bare metal servers, and is widely interoperable with major platforms and carrier networks.
TelcoBridges is a leader in the design and manufacture of carrier grade, high performance, and high-density SBCs and VoIP gateways. TelcoBridges has deployed VoIP solutions in more than 100 countries worldwide. TelcoBridges’ brands include: FreeSBC™, Tmedia™ (VoIP media gateways), Tsig™ (signaling gateways), Tdev™ (development platforms) and Tmonitor™ (real-time network monitoring equipment).
