TelcoBridges Hardware Validation Program Takes the Guesswork out of Selecting Optimum Hardware for FreeSBC and ProSBC

Extensive Testing and Certification for Hardware from Dell, Telco Systems, Ciena and Qotom gives ProSBC and FreeSBC Customers a Broad Range of Options to Support Varied Use-Cases

Montreal, Canada: October 29, 2019 – TelcoBridges, the leading designer and manufacturer of carrier-grade virtual session border controllers and Tmedia VoIP gateways, today announced a new hardware validation program designed to help FreeSBC and ProSBC software users make informed choices for their hardware platforms.

Since its initial launch, more than 10 million FreeSBC session-downloads have been procured by thousands of customers in more than 100 countries, and market acceptance for the recently released ProSBC upgrade continues to increase exponentially. FreeSBC and ProSBC run on a variety of hardware platforms – and numerous customers have inquired about the optimum environments for running TelcoBridges’ software.

In response to these inquiries, TelcoBridges has worked extensively with four hardware providers – Ciena, Dell, Telco Systems and Qotom – to test compatibility and resulting session handling performance of their hardware, certifying it for use with the ProSBC and FreeSBC software. As a result, the hardware certification program announced today takes the guesswork out of selecting optimum hardware to run FreeSBC and ProSBC.

“FreeSBC and ProSBC are used by service providers of all sizes as well as enterprise customers, so each certified hardware platform brings different capacity and feature sets to the table,” said TelcoBridges’ Chief Marketing Officer Alan Percy. “As a result, we’re able to refer customers to a wide range of hardware options that can best fit their needs.”

Recommended use-cases for each certified hardware platform include:
• Ciena: Enterprise, SMB, Branch Office
• Qotom: Enterprise, SMB, Branch Office, Education, Lab Testing
• Telco Systems: Enterprise, SMB, Branch Office
• Dell: Service Provider, Private Cloud, Enterprise

Detailed performance figures for each hardware platform can be found at: https://freesbc.telcobridges.com/validated-hardware/.

“In total, the certified hardware options run the gamut of use cases from small enterprise to large ‘peering’ carriers, in addition to VNF applications,” adds Percy. “In all instances, FreeSBC and ProSBC’s small software footprint and high performance helps to maximize the efficiency of the hardware.”

“As service providers turn to uCPE to bring Gigabit Ethernet and new virtualized services within their networks, Ciena’s 3906 Platform enables TelcoBridges’ customers to validate hardware before integration while also having the ability to differentiate service offerings and deliver increased value to end-users,” said Brian Lavallée, Ciena’s Senior Director of Portfolio Marketing.

“FreeSBC and ProSBC operate seamlessly on our NFVTIME VNF platform,” said Telco Systems’ Product Line Manager Gabi Podolsky. “We’ve worked extensively with TelcoBridges’ engineers to thoroughly test our hardware and software, simplify the installation process, and document the resulting performance in a manner that takes all of the guesswork out for customers.”

TelcoBridges’ ProSBC Identified as “Market Disruptor” in Analyst Firm GlobalData’s Report

Report Cites how the Combination of TelcoBridges’ FreeSBC and ProSBC Disrupt the SBC Market in a Wide Range of Use-Cases

Montreal, Canada: August 20, 2019 – TelcoBridges, the leading designer and manufacturer of carrier-grade virtual session border controller software and Tmedia VoIP gateways, today announced that telecommunications market research firm GlobalData has profiled the new ProSBC Virtual Session Border Controller for Service Providers and Enterprises in its most recent Market Disruptor Report.

In its report, GlobalData cites TelcoBridges as a “Market Disruptor” by detailing how the established provider of traditional gateway products has embarked on a dramatic approach to disrupt traditional SBC economics with the FreeSBC product and the subscription-based ProSBC. These two SBC offerings are ushering in a growing number of use-cases, while maintaining the advantage of very low cost of entry.

The report cites how TelcoBridges has demonstrated significant traction and momentum since the initial offering of the FreeSBC in November 2017. To date, more than 10 million session licenses for the virtual SBC, (supportable by VMware, OpenStack, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and bare metal platforms) have been deployed by thousands of customers around the globe. The report also states that beyond service provider customers – the new SBCs have become popular and successful solutions for enterprise customers, who are using them for traffic grooming and mitigating network security threats.

GlobalData’s report acknowledges TelcoBridges’ business model, which leverages FreeSBC downloads as an introductory point for customers, and provides incremental value via the subscription-based ProSBC product, which includes support. The report states: “TelcoBridges’ FreeSBC approach has proven instrumental in allowing customers to validate virtualized SBC solutions and enable innovative new use cases.” And TelcoBridges “has wisely recognized that many users require more sophisticated services requiring additional horsepower and more features, which are available via ProSBC.”

ProSBC (which became generally available earlier this month) is a feature-rich Virtual Session Border Controller for Service Providers and Enterprises that features a number of enhancements over the FreeSBC edition, including:

• Encrypted SIP/TLS signaling and SRTP media relay features
• Enhanced high availability features, supporting no loss-of-calls during a fail-over
• STIR/SHAKEN features
• Permanent licenses – at additional cost, eliminating annual license key updates
• Support for the Microsoft Azure cloud
• An improved web portal user interface.

“Our Market Disruptor report recognizes companies that challenge the status quo in established markets with new and innovative models that redefine a segment’s value chain,” said GlobalData’s John Byrne. “TelcoBridges is a well-established and respected player in the telecom equipment market and its ProSBC and FreeSBC offerings fit our Disruptor category perfectly, given their ability to extend innovative SBC use cases to customers without the CAPEX shock factor.”.

“The FreeSBC and ProSBC offerings complement our full portfolio of VoIP gateways, signaling gateways, transcoding gateways and hybrid SBC gateways, and the massive market adoption we’ve seen for the FreeSBC has helped to expand our addressable market within the service provider and enterprise segments,” said TelcoBridges’ Chief Marketing Officer Alan Percy. “We’re pleased to see that GlobalData has recognized and validated these developments via their report.”

Frost and Sullivan Spotlights TelcoBridges’ “Intelligent Edge” for Virtual Network Functions

Executive Brief Analyzes Intelligent Edge Service Delivery Strategy and Benefits

Montreal, Canada: May 20, 2019 – TelcoBridges, the leading designer and manufacturer of carrier-grade virtual session border controller software and Tmedia VoIP gateways, today announced that it has been featured in the Intelligent Edge Executive Brief by industry analyst firm Frost and Sullivan.

The brief outlines the benefits to service providers of moving key virtual network functions to the edge of their network utilizing the ETSI NFV architecture and universal customer premises equipment (uCPE). As the brief explains, the intersection of cost-effective uCPE equipment and ETSI’s NFV architecture enables delivery of network functions at the true edge of service provider networks. This creates opportunities for service providers to leverage Virtual Network Functions (VNFs), including TelcoBridges FreeSBC and ProSBC, to enable new services at the edge of their network on a “pay-as-you-grow” model.

To download a copy of the Frost and Sullivan Executive Brief – visit: https://www2.telcobridges.com/IntelligentEdge.

“The key tenet of the intelligent edge is to easily deploy and manage a virtualized network and communications services,” said Michael Brandenburg, Frost and Sullivan Industry Analyst. “When leveraging uCPE and a set of approved VNFs, a service provider can quickly implement and configure any combination of these services tailored to meet exact customer requirements. TelcoBridges’ solutions align perfectly with the key tenets of the intelligent edge design approach, and its service provider customers are already taking advantage of the benefits that an intelligent edge gives them.”

“The Frost and Sullivan Executive Brief explains many of the challenges and benefits of the Intelligent Edge strategy,” said TelcoBridges’ Senior Director of Product Marketing Alan Percy. “Our customers have shown how the combination of FreeSBC and ProSBC as a VNF, with its disruptive pricing model is filling a void in the marketplace by delivering network security with SBCs at the very edge of their network.”

The platform-agnostic FreeSBC and ProSBC products are available for download on any combination of VMware™, KVM/OpenStack™, Amazon/AWS™, Microsoft Azure™ and bare metal servers as well as dedicated network devices as part of virtual network function integration.
