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.”
