Commercial Off The Shelf

Supplied on standard Dell servers optionally with dedicated E1/T1/STM-1 support.

Virtual Deployment

Virtual Machine deployed on industry-standard servers in a data centre environment using a hypervisor, i.e. VMware.

Cloud Deployment

Delivered as a Virtual Network Function (VNF) in AWS, OpenStack, Nokia and Google cloud infrastructure.

Virtualisation

The SVI-SBC session border controller is deployed in virtual environments worldwide enabling operators to benefit from the reduced costs and benefits that a cloud-native component can deliver them.

The SVI-SBC can be enabled as a Virtual Machine (VM) on existing infrastructure or as a fully blown Virtual Network Function (VNF) in an AWS or OpenStack cloud infrastructure.

Auto Configuration

Open product management interfaces allow for auto-configuration by an orchestration platform. Whether orchestration is physically delivered via an XML, SQL, HTTP, TELNET etc interface, the SVI-SBC session border controller has been designed from the ground up to deliver remote operation, administration and maintenance (OA&M) control.

Virtualisation diagram

Distributed Architecture

The SVI-SBC is architected on micro-services principles separating the signalling and media planes into distinct software components. The signalling plane provides a high availability core enabling centralised routing and control across the network.

Multiple media planes can be instantiated dynamically to meet bandwidth demands and/or distributed across different territories to match latency requirements and improve network resiliencyand offer carrier-grade reliability.


Distributed Architecture diagram

Elasticity

This architecture enables on-demand scaling in a virtual environment delivering full network elasticity.

Dynamic Load Balancing

Dynamic load balancing insures optimum network performance with network load shared evenly across network components.

Network Resilience

The distributed network architecture insures network resiliency coupled with high availability options and carrier-grade reliability.

SIP Signalling Manipulation Engine | SSME

Message Manipulation icon

Message Manipulation

Powerful regular-expression-based manipulation of message header and contents allowing removal, creation and replacement.

Redirects icon

Redirects

Acts as a redirect server by redirecting messages to another service. Can be used to provide load balancing/throttling.

IMS Support | A-SBC + I-SBC

The SVI-SBC provides next-generation support for secure interconnecting to IMS-based networks. Delivering comprehensive VoLTE support allows the SVI-SBC to be deployed in the core of an IMS network or provide IPX / Roaming Hub interconnect.

The SVI-SBC provides a flexible architecture allowing providers to consolidate functionality and resources at both the access and interconnect interface through support for both the A-SBC and I-SBC modes.

IMS Support diagram
