TMC and Cloud Computing Magazine Recognize the Success of TelcoBridges’ FreeSBC Technology and Business Model

Montreal, Canada: June 20, 2018 – TelcoBridges, the leading designer and manufacturer of carrier-grade Tmedia VoIP gateways and the FreeSBC virtual session border controller, today announced that TMC’s Cloud Computing Magazine has awarded a 2018 Cloud Computing Product-of-the-Year Award to TelcoBridges’ FreeSBC virtual session border controller. These prestigious awards honor vendors with the most innovative, useful and beneficial cloud-based products that have been available to deploy within the past year.

“Product-of-the-Year recipients are verifiable leaders in the marketplace, and their innovative products within the cloud computing space stand out from competitive offerings,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “Congratulations to TelcoBridges for winning a 2018 Cloud Computing Product-of-the-Year Award. Their innovative technology and business model are deserving of this recognition, and we look forward to witnessing the continued success of the FreeSBC offering.”

TelcoBridges’ FreeSBC virtual session border controller protects networks from DoS and DDoS attacks while offering outstanding session handling performance. The FreeSBC runs on any combination of VMware, OpenStack, Amazon/AWS and bare metal servers as well as dedicated network devices as part of virtual network function integration. The FreeSBC is offered via a “freemium” business model. Sessions can be licensed at no cost or with optional support, and premium feature subscriptions for $1/session/year. To date, more than 3 million sessions have been downloaded by hundreds of customers in 59 countries around the globe.

“Cloud communications applications demand a different business model that requires scalable subscription terms,” said TelcoBridges’ Senior Director of Product Marketing Alan Percy. “TMC’s Cloud Computing Product-of-the-Year award puts a spotlight on this important distinction and FreeSBC’s unique freemium pricing model.”

The award-winning FreeSBC scales up and down – supporting anywhere from 100 to 60,000 sessions per instance, with support for 1,100 completed sessions per second (CSPS) and up to 6,000 session attempts per second (SAPS).

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. To learn more about the FreeSBC offering visit
